Well the weather is cooling down, the heat is kicking on so that must mean one thing…Fall is officially here!
To help get in the mood I needed to get the front doorway decorated in the fall spirit. Being here in Poland they don’t really celebrate Halloween nor have I seen a lot of fall decorations, so I had to let my inner Martha Stewart come out.
A couple of months ago I went to an antique/flea market in the city of Torun with some friends and I found an old wood rake that I thought I could come up something creative to use it for and it was only 20 zlotys!
Then a few days ago the stores started putting out lots of artificial flowers to get ready for a special holiday here in November(stay tuned that will be a neat blog post) so my creative juices started working and then I saw the perfect fall themed leaves I knew what I was going to do!
So here is what I started with….
Then I took the flowers and taped them one by one on to the rake. The orange ribbon was then tied around to cover the tape. 5 minutes later the rake looked like this…
And as you can see I found pumpkins here in Poland too! I am so excited.
So what do you do to welcome fall?
