There is no better way to welcome Fall then with a DIY buffalo check wall!
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.
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!
Switch out your BB cream for a heavier cover concealer.
I also break out my darker Fall colors of lipstick, blush and eyeshadow.
I even mix neutrals into my greens! I love the texture it creates. Have fun! There are no rules.
for more neutral colors.
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?
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.
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!
