Fall transitions

Decor, StyleElkee StewartComment

I woke up to a whopping 48 degrees this morning!

I honestly debated turning on the heater to bring the inside up 2 degrees.  Don't worry I didn't do it! I'm not a fan of the cold, Sunshine makes me happy. Fall is my favorite Season, but I like to slowly transition.  Here are some easy and subtle ways I welcome Fall.

Perfect for those brisk mornings and chilly nights.

Pair with

Leggings, jeans, or even shorts! My fav is to tie around my waist.

Open toe boots/Mules

That perfect combo between a sandal and a boot!

Concealer

Switch out your BB cream for a heavier cover concealer.

I also break out my darker Fall colors of lipstick, blush and eyeshadow.

Neutral

I even mix neutrals into my greens!  I love the texture it creates. Have fun! There are no rules.

Pumpkin

everything

Just because Target has Halloween out in August doesn't mean you have to buy it. I start by adding a little pumpkin here and there.

Although we are now in September I haven't added a single Pumpkin to my decor!  Who am I?  I hope to add some and more Fall décor over the weekend.  

How do you transition into Fall?

Boho Bow and Arrows

DecorElkee StewartComment

My dining room has a Farmhouse/Boho/Rustic vibe going on so I wanted my Valentine décor and mantle to go along  with that.  I knew I wanted to make a bow and after browsing Pinterest there wasn't anything that didn't require a bowed branch or pvc pipe.  If we weren't buried in snow here in Utah I would have loved to find a curved branch, but I went for the next best thing. 

You know the rack of inexpensive toys you can find at the Grocery store or gas station.  I know these toys all too well.  My 4 year old loves these toys and they are a good bribe for being good while grocery shopping.  I knew we  had a couple of  bow and arrow sets so I went digging through toys until I found one.  They are only $2.99 new.

After a few coats of gold spray paint...

Gold spray paint never disappoints! Now for the arrows.  I knew I wanted to use sticks to give the Rustic look so I cut a few from some bushes in my front yard. 

-Sticks/twigs

-Felt/ fabric

-Twine/string

-Feathers

-Glue gun

-Scissors

For the tips I cut a few triangles and hearts. 2 per arrow.  Hot glue them to the tip with the stick in the middle of felt.  On the other end glue feathers and wrap with twine.  For the felt feathers I cut 2 rectangles, glued them closed on the end of the stick then cut into feather shape and cut slits.

I am  very busy just like many of you, so I'm all about  fast and easy projects that make a big impact.   This was just that!  Now run to the nearest Dollar store or gas station and find yourself a bow!  If you make this quick DIY please share and tag us!
