Fall has arrived in the Carolinas (inside and out)…. the temperature has dropped and the scenery has changed. Love this time of year!
A few simple changes to the overall décor and you have an autumn foyer!
Confession: I can over do it when it comes to decorating.
So to keep things simple, I used a few felt placemats as wall art! Yep, you read that right! Placemats and a shadow box frame, that I have had for years, creates a simple but welcoming foyer.
My original plan was to add some glitz to the otherwise plain placemats, but after seeing them up on the wall, I have decided to stick with the less is more attitude. For now!
This was the easiest wall décor ever! I pulled down all the picture frames and plants from the wall, and literally stuck the vein of the leaf over the nail already in the wall! I just gave each placemat a nudge so they hang on an angle.
Here is one of the shadow box frames that I purchased from Big Lots years ago. They still had the cardboard over the corners!
I added a few leaves, pumpkins, and acorns to the ledge. The leaf pillows (stuffed in the urn) were also once placemats.
I am still looking for some faux topiaries for the ledge. I am surprised that this has been such a difficult process. I really thought I knew of a place that would have them locally. They had a few but they were all too small. I search continues.
I had way more photos to share with you but Photoshop decided it wasn’t going to work. Well, it did work up until I wanted to save the photographs and then it crashed. I believe a recent computer update has interfered with the workings of PH. Please don’t suggest I use another program, because do you know how hard it is to switch from your favorite photo editing software? It’s like going to a new hair stylist! Not. going. to. happen.
Not without a lot of whining and crying. lol
