I have a super simple and easy fall decor idea for you today… In 5 minutes you can create an entire wall or mantel display using merely twine or burlap and a little sheet music.
I had so much fun last year with my white Christmas motif (tour here if you like), using burlap and sheet music decorations. I found the textures beautiful and the neutral color palette so serene. And like I shared last week, orange is not really the color for me… so I thought I’d try some twine and sheet music fall decor this year.
I used some scissors, tape, textured ribbon I bought on sale at Hobby Lobby months ago, and some thrifted sheet music.
You could use burlap or twine and book pages, if you want, for a very similar effect. I actually found shapes I liked on the computer and then literally put my paper up to my computer screen to trace a rough sketch. I cut them out, looped the ribbon around parts of an old window frame, taped it to the back, and called it done.
I love the neutral colors, the variety of textures, the touch of fall… and I love the empty space. Is that weird? Do you crave empty space sometimes?
The holidays (and life!) can be so full. So busy. I hope I’m able to work a little empty space into my days as well as my decor.
How about you? Do you need to create a little empty space in your life?
Happy beginning of fall. 🙂
