Simple ways to add last minute fall touches to your home

Our poor house is confused. It can’t decide if it wants to continue celebrating fall or get a head start on Christmas. It reminds me of the weather we’ve been having lately. Totally confusing. We broke a record here yesterday with a high in the mid 80’s. I actually considered wearing a sundress to a dinner we went to! On November 1st! It’s crazy.

Last week I finally added some simple fall decor to our family room mantel. I only used things I had on hand or things from our yard. It didn’t take very long to put it all together so I thought I’d share some simple last minute fall decorating ideas that can be used anywhere. No need to spend hours or lots of money.
