Needing Decorating Motivation?

I have been visiting many of your blogs and you all have been so creative in your Fall decorating. Many of you started weeks ago~Good for you! For those of you who haven't started your Fall decorating (like me) here are some more ideas (aka motivation) from the good people at Better Homes and Gardens Online:

This pumpkin wagon is my favorite~Don't you just LOVE it?

Added Note from Robin: I received a couple of E mails asking me about this wagon, which to me actually looks like an old fashion wheel barrow. My husband is handy and could make this for me but if you or your husband aren't real handy you might be able to find something like this at a antique store. Let your imagination go, you don't need a wheel barrow...A wooden box, apple crate, or any wooden crate painted black, dark brown or dark green would look great. For the lettering on the pumpkin you can get vinyl lettering at a craft store OR do what I would do and either stencil or free hand with a black permanent sharpie... Have fun ladies!

Wouldn't it be nice to walk hand in hand with the one you love through this pumpkin path~Yes, I am a romantic at heart~


For the kids...Cute little pumpkins decorated with faces, placed on top of a wooden stick that's been wrapped with ribbon.


Pumpkin night-lights, no major carving required!

Pumpkin stem ware~ So cute!

Here is how to make it: Cut circles from orange construction paper, cut out the centers, then cut slits in the centers. Cut stems out of green paper and glue them onto the orange circles. Snake four pieces of thin cloth-coated florist's wire around the stem of each glass; at the top, curl the pieces around pencils to make tendrils.

  3. All of those are fabulous inspiration pictures. I love seeing a lot of real pumpkins outside, but I just can't afford to buy that many. Last year I figured out one of our garden centers usually has tons of real pumpkins and starts needing to get rid of them by Halloween so I got a bunch last year really CHEAP. I'll try to do the same this year.

  4. I love the fall season the best, colours are awesome, unlike winter. So much you can do with a little colour and there. Everything looks so pretty.

  6. Hi Robin
    Thanks for sharing those great ideas. The pumpkin barrow is gorgeous and I love the pumpkin path too. We don't decorate for fall over here. I don't know why not, it looks such fun. :C

  9. These are very cute ideas. I love the wagon and did something similar with an old tub, however we got a very hard frost and two feet of snow, it is now a frozen pumpkin pie I am afraid.
