Fall decor mayhem.

Its about time for me to get on the bandwagon for fall. 
This is the first year that I'm not going back to school, it's an odd feeling, but more time for crafting!!
JoAnns had their labor day weekend sale and of course I can't pass up 1/2 off clearance fabric.
I picked up this faux silk. 2 and a half yards for 4? YES!
it just so happened to be the perfect width for my table I made!
No sew table cloth for the win!
It just so happened that it looks amazing with my centerpiece I made!
 The cats were very helpful....
 I also took some pallet boards and sprayed them with orange spray paint to make some pumpkins.
When I took the pallets apart I kept the bent nails
 (because I KNEW I could use them for SOMETHING!!) And I used them as the stem, after drilling some pilot holes. I just plugged them in. I also used some vintage fabric from my grand mothers stash for the leaves, and tied them on, I didn't even sand down the planks to be honest.
 I then just put them around the house.

 I didn't even brush the dirt off! it makes it look rustic, right?

 This is a close up of the nail.
 I even just threw some leaves from joann's up on the bookcases.

 I even had time to make a fall table runner. 
I bought all of this fabric for a table runner for my dining room table until I bought the silk.
Well crap I can't let all of that go to waste!
So here is my fall table runner, its still long enough for my table but it got placed on the coffee table.
 I just used the width of the jelly roll size and went from there. easy peasy took about an hour.
 Ironing included and I HATE to iron.
 I used some left over fabric from something.
 And finally the last of the pumpkins!

Thanks for stopping by!
