Fall is just around the corner! I’m already thinking of pulling out the storage bins…I say bins as in about fifteen bins! What can I say…I LOVE Fall decorating!
I’m always brainstorming for a fun Fall decorating idea for the patio. I thought I’d share what I did for my front porch last Fall with some dead tree branches.
Now let me tell you we get CRAZY wind in my area, I’m talking Wizard of Oz better hold on to Toto wind. I think the wind must have rustled my branches a bit this day since that left one there is a little “off.” Oh well, adds to the look of an old deserted house. Creepy for Halloween.
The best part of this quick DIY Fall project is that the branches were FREE! We have a large area of open space just down the road from my home where new homes are being built.
There are some big trees in that area that are being torn down, so with my handsaw in tow and my cute chauffeur, off we went to chop some trees.
I loved this easy, fun look so much that I think I’ll do the same this year. Those branches also made it into my Christmas decor and I still have some in my home to add a natural element.
Have you seen the old 1950’s movie, “The Birds,” about black crows swarming houses and tormenting people?? Creepy. Crows are one of my favorite decorating pieces for Fall and Halloween and I scatter them throughout the home. Just as long as they’re stuffed and not flying in my home, I’m good!
