There is something lovely about celebrating the change of seasons as Summer fades away into Autumn. These DIY Fall decor projects and ideas help bring the warm colors and textures of autumn into your home and garden displays.

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is take a drive through the fall colors. There’s something beautiful about cresting a hill and seeing the fall colors for miles and miles and miles.

This season always reminds me of the quote by Stanley Horowitz.

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
