DIY Fall Decor Idea: Picture Frame with Hanging Fall Leaves + Craft Store Coupons for the Week


Hello, friends! It's Monday! What are you up to this week? If you ask me, I am getting into the Fall spirit! :) 

I'm checking out when to go to the farmer's market, getting some new DIY home decor done, when to take my kids to go pick up our pumpkins, baking sweets, etcetera. Don't you just love this season? The colors outside are amazing and I can't wait to go to the mountains and just enjoy the natural beauty that Fall brings! :)


So to get you inspired for Fall, how about starting with a simple DIY home decor? I found this idea to quickly update your mantel or entryway table: use a colorful empty picture frame, hang Fall leaves on it and complete the display with a branch full of brightly colored berries running across the length of the mantel, some nice Fall candles,  and small gourds set on top of egg cups.  I love it! :)

And to help you save money on all your Fall craft projects, check out these deals from your favorite craft stores!
