Autumn Celebration!

Autumn DIY Inspiration from Denise on a Whim
This week I'm taking my kids to meet their teachers for the new school year. They're excited and, frankly, so am I, although it's hard to believe I will have a 4th grader. Makes me feel a tiny bit on the old side!
With the start of school, comes thoughts of fall: sweaters, warm drinks with friends on a cool night, movies under a blanket. And, most of all, beautiful autumn colors!
To get in the mood, I've complied a collection of some past fall projects for you to take a look at today.

This little pumpkin from a bundt pan is one of my favorite creations (and most popular, too).

You should all know by now that I love pallet signs. And I just adore the colors on this one!

An old tart tin with some character and a lamp base became this junky fruit bowl. Filled with apples and adorned by gourds, it makes the perfect autumn display.

Another popular post, this trio of pallet signs was simple to make. And I also included a free printable so you can make something similar for yourself!

A vintage record cabinet, redone in dark wood with white and a pop of turquoise, is the perfect setting for some fall decor.

This adorable chalkboard was made from a table leaf. The color of the wood is gorgeous on this beauty!

And, in between projects, I managed to find a little time to take you on a tour of one of our local covered bridges!
