Natural Fall Decor

before and after toolbox

Make no mistake about it! Fall is here :)
And I’m soooo happy about it! I’m walking in leaves, and dreaming of my fall wardrobe (post-pregnancy), and sipping homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes. This is bliss.
With baby’s due date fast approaching, I wasn’t going to spend any time or effort on Autumn decor… but then autumn got the better of me. I found this amazing rustic toolbox at my mother-in-laws, and was immediately planning out my fall mantle. Come take a peek at some of my Natural Fall Decor

Like I said… it all started here. I found this amazing old toolbox that was built by my late father-in-law (which I will keep and cherish forever!). It’s so beautiful! I couldn’t wait to incorporate it into my design.


A quick trip to the dollar store, and $4 later, I had all the sparkly foliage I needed! I cut all of the twigs down into small branches, chopped some cinnamon sticks in half and grabbed some pinecones of various sizes to decorate with.


Since I obviously couldn’t add live flames to the mix, I also grabbed some battery powered lights and stuck them into little bronze votives to add some light.

I’m very happy with the final version :)

I also added a few other decorative pieces to the display so that the toolbox wouldn’t sit alone… Here are a mixture of mini pinecones and acorns that I used to sprinkle on the table for some texture, and to fill up a fall votive.


I also threw some faux wheat branches in a vase to add a bit of extra colour. Plus, what else screams fall better!?


Finally, my favourite scent for the fall (followed very closely by pumpkin pie), is cinnamon. So I add it to everything! I took the leftover cinnamon sticks, wrapped them in jute string and put them on display. Easy peasy!


As for the rest of the house… I added a couple of other touches. One of which was using my Hexagon Wall Planters to add a touch of fall. I simply swapped out the succulents for faux fall decor!


Then, I did the fastest version of a fall mantle I knew how to do! I used materials that I already had, and added some natural fall pieces to the mantle, including faux cotton falls, a rustic old chalkboard, some metallic sprayed pumpkins, and a burlap “give thanks” sign.
