I have a love/hate relationship with fall. I love the colors and the cool nights. I love the fact that the mosquitoes return to the hell from which they came. I love being able to throw on a sweater and curl up in front of the fire on a cool autumn evening, but still enjoy the warm sunshine on an Indian Summer’s day.
There are a lot of natural materials available for DIY Fall decor projects. Fallen leaves, fallen branches, pine cones, tree bark, mature grass, and more is all plentiful at this time of the season.
