Awesome, Upcycled, Autumn Adornments

It's here! FALL! The last few days of summer are slowly slipping away, replaced by crisper air, weekends packed with football and pumpkin-flavored everything (no complaints here). With the changing seasons, we find ourselves itching for a few new pieces of decor, ones that celebrate the morphing trees and declining temperatures. We want something that's economical, meaningful and keeps our impact on the environment at a minimum. What solution is there for this DIY decoration dilemma?

Reuse, of course! Using old materials in brilliant new ways is smart for your style and your wallet. Feast your eyes on the projects below for great ideas that not only repurpose materials, but give your abode the Autumn oomph it needs. Let's get our Fall on, people! 

Apply chalkboard paint to an old painting for a scary-sweet sign!

We've got spirit, yes we do! We love this sign and you should too!

Who says decorations are just for inside? An old chair becomes a fancy fall planter!

This wreath is tops (literally!). It's made from upcycled mason jar lids. Awesome.

This cute little drawer becomes an even cuter little centerpiece!

Reused wood makes a statement as a harvest sign.

Extra glass and terracotta pots come together as a chic fall terrarium.

Candlesticks do double duty as pumpkin pedestals!

Get ready to rake in the complements with this DIY project!

pallets + letters + fall foliage = perfection

These upcycled bottles are as sweet as the real thing...minus the calories.
