1. Must add pumpkins. These ones are fake but they look pretty good! I scatter them through the house and call it a day.
I also have some little raffia ones that look cute in groups.
This big one I found at HomeGoods many years ago. I love how it includes my signature color. GREEN!
2. Cozier fabrics. In the fall, I take away the light and bright colors in my house that are found in throws and pillows and little decor accents and replace them with wooly throws, richer or darker colors and heavier textures. I thrifted green velvet curtain panels and used fringe from a garage sale blanket to make these awesome, warm and cozy pillows. (With the extensive expertise of my friend Vanessa.) I can sew imperfect straight lines like a champ..but that's all.
3. Tassels. This year, my fall decor is full of tassels. Because they're awesome, easy and cheap. I made these giant tassels for a throw in our bedroom. They're hanging beside windows and as a "wreath" on the front porch. They'll probably stick around all winter long because they're made of thick soft yarn and make such a great addition to warm and cozy looking decor.
4. Feathers. My inlaws have turkeys that roam around their house so we have an abundance of pretty feathers that I've been sticking in vases all over the house. They're perfect for fall decor.

I bought some of these electrical bracket thingies technical term at Home Depot. Here they are on Amazon.
I sprayed them with a coat of this copper spray paint. I love the finish. I used this super glue. It has a brush which is so much better than gluing your fingers together and loosing your prints when you have to rip them apart. I know from the experience of a friend..... This is what I wasn't sure would work. I just brushed some glue on each flat side and sat it down on the glass and let it dry. No pressure or anything. And it stayed. Now I'm sure if I tried to hang something heavier, it would fall but for something that is literally as light as a feather, it worked perfectly.
I was thinking that I'd try sticking one of those sticks with a glittery star or something for Christmas time and maybe sticks with leaves during the spring. That's as far as I've gotten but if it doesn't translate, I might be out $3 and that's a gamble I'm willing to make.
I like the little touch of industrial and copper and the bit of nature it brings to this wall.
Make sure and come back next week to see our finished back porch! It's so dreamy and a space I now LOVE. Can't wait to show you.
