Friday Fall-ish Favorites and a Mini DIY

Are you as ready for fall as I am? It’s going to be in the 90s this weekend, but that didn’t stop me from updating my mantel this week. It’s still slightly summer-ish: succulents and what my husband calls “weeds from our yard” are featured prominently. But with the addition of a bit of yarn, they look much cozier, right?

To make the yarn containers, I gathered up some plants, votives and other glass containers along with a selection of yarn. I used a glue gun to place a small line of glue near the base of the container. I secured one end of the yarn and then worked my way up. At the top, I simply tucked the other end of the yarn underneath the previous rows instead of adding more glue. I think it will be easier to remove later.

Are you planning any mini home makeovers for Fall? Here are a few more bits of inspiration:

Happy Weekend!
