Fall-Crow DIY collection

Love this time of year so much. I enjoy the cool crisp air in the morning when we go outside to feed our animals. Our farmhouse is surrounded with beautiful flowers that have struggled all summer and now embrace the autumn weather.
Inside the cupboards and bookshelves all get a new look...with pumpkins, stitcheries and CROWS! 

 I've found several free crow graphics that I just love, some new, some vintagey...
I print them out and frame them in Black frames. Simple way to add to your fall decor.
I've stitched some fall pumpkins, put them next to little dollar store pumpkins atop metal candleholders...

 Above I filled a glass jar with fall leaves, spray painted the lid black and attached a black crow...
love to decorate with simple ideas....

 The white cupboard was found while thrifting last summer, it had been left on someone's outdoor porch....the shelves are a bit warped but fill up nicely with fall decor. I've found everything looks a little better after it is painted! The best DIY projects for me have been painted!

Joining in with these lovely parties for the week!

Did you make that pumpkin with the appliques? That is fabulous! I love the crow idea...but I can hear my hubs saying...you used all the ink for a crow?? But I do love them!!

Debbie~Everything looks so festive. The only fall items I have put out are some luminarie gourds that I just bought last night :o)
Thank you for giving me the idea of printing out the crows and framing it...I will have to try that this season.
Have a great week!

So warm and inviting. Just loving those black crows. I used a lot of them this year also. And you are so lucky to have found that great cupboard. I always wish I could find such great stuff!

Oh I just love your fall decor! I hope you will add your lovely metamorphosis to my Fall in Love linky party on Wednesday.

Until then, stop by and see the under $20 makeover I gave an ugly brass light fixture.

Happy Monday!
