Fall Decor/Fall Craft project

Hey Everyone!

I promised to get back with yall after I planted flowers and decorated for fall.  So, here are my pics.

This is my hall tree, which is made from an old salvaged door. I absolutely love this.  My friend, Nick built this.  Doesn't it look so pretty all decorated?  I can't wait to decorate it for Christmas, too!

 I adore candle stick holders.... well anything to do with candles!  These are some of my favorites.  They are white and distressed~Shabby Chic, of course.
 This is my foyer.  I love this antique buffet.  The sun mirror came from a store down at the beach in Destin.  My hubby picked it out.
 I wanted to zoom in on this.  This is an idea that I got several years ago from a magazine.  Just take a candy dish or any dish on a pedastal (cake dish,etc.)  and fill with pumpkins or gords. So simple, so pretty!
 My dining room.  I have this china cabinet and the matching table (table not pictured) for sale.  I am hoping to sell soon, so I can go buy the China Cabinet I have my eye on before it gets gone.  But anyway,  again, you can see how much I love candlesticks!

 This is one of my treasures....An old salvaged door with key hole.  Absolutely love it.  Shabby Chic!

 Love my little pilgrams.

 This dish idea, again.  Isn't that so pretty?
 My front porch.

 Some of my flowers
 More flowers

 My kitchen table

 Now for my fall craft project.  It was fun and easy and sooo cheap!  I love to hang wreaths on my windows outside at Christmas.  So, I thought how beautiful would fall ones be!  I have never done fall wreaths.  So my plan was to make them.  I was hoping to find those wooden twig wreaths at the Dollar Tree as well as everything I would need to put on them.  They did not have the wreaths             :(  
So, I saw these wonderful little baskets and imagined exactly what I would do.  Here are all the supplies you will need.

It took almost one whole roll to do each window decoration.
 Assorted fall harvest vegetables
 Pinecones, which you can purchase or just pick up in your back yard.  I did a little of both.
Assorted flowers

Scissors, glue gun, glue stick, wire cutters

Simply glue and arrange randomly.  You can do this basket vertical or horizontal.  I liked vertical better.  Then tie the ribbon on in a pretty bow.

And Tada!  Beautiful, if I do say so myself!

Only spent about $30.00 for 7 windows.  You can't beat that!

So that's all!  Happy Fall!  :)

Oh, I almost forgot.  I sprayed each arrangement with glossy clear acrylic sealer to give it a shiny look and protect it from the elements.  The veggies will fade and crack in the sun if not protected.  I sprayed all of it, even the flowers and basket.
Also, a handy little contraption that I came across a while back is this black little gadget that fits to any spray can and makes spraying effortless and helps prevent runs.  It cost like $1 or $2.  I bought mine at Walmart.  You know how your hand and finger start killing you after a while of spraypainting?  Well, you won't have that problem anymore.
