Easy Fall Decor

I love quick and easy decor, especially projects that "Fall" into place and turn out surprisingly festive without even trying.

This arrangement fits that category, in fact I whipped it up between cleaning the kitchen and walking the dogs.
An arrangement mixed with faux fall picks, feathers, natural cat tails,wheat and leaves.

If you have time between your chores, here's how to make this fall arrangement.
Take your floral foam and put your wheat in the center.This gives your arrangement height. I wrapped my wheat with wire so that it stays bunched together.
Next add your feathers and cat tails. Look out for those cat tails though, If they break open watch out. You will have thousands of little white fuzz floating around all day!
Fill in the bottom of the arrangement with your fall picks. Make sure to cover any gaps/holes in the arrangements.
Place the arrangement in a container. For added texture and color, I placed a piece of burlap and brown felt at the base of my arrangement.
Not bad for quick and easy, ugh?
Gotta go. Working on another project between doing some laundry and cleaning the windows!
Do you have any quick and easy Fall Decor tips?

you did a great job....is it sitting on your kitchen table? just wondering where it's at....I love it!

I don't have a whole lot of fall tips, but this year I did put some shelled nuts in glass jars and then put my indian corn on top of them...made two of them and added them to our dining room table setting. very fallish! :)

Sooooo pretty!! You sound just like me. I bought a few things in Hobby Lobby yesterday to put together a little something on my dining room table. Well on my way up to bed last night I passed all the bags and decided to go and "play" then! One thing led to another and I finally made it upstairs around 1am LOL!

Quick and easy and I'm inspired to actually do something rather than just toss all my fall stuff up on the mantle and call it a day:)

Oh yes ... I know all too well about the cat tails (ugh). The floral arrangment that you "whipped up" is beautiful, Laura! The feathers are a fun addition, along with the burlap that you tucked in. Looks great on your table, too. Happy Fall!

Love it, Laura! Great tip for keeping the wheat bunched together with a piece of wire. I love quick and easy this year - I'm soooo behind.
