Creative DIY Projects for Fall & Weekly Link Party

I know the first official day of fall isn't until September 22. As soon as I tasted my first pumpkin spice latte of the season and the Dollar Spot at Target busted out it's autumn goodies, it already started to feel like fall though. My family has had a horrific summer, and it's left me feeling like I just need this summer to end. I pray that next summer will be better, but for now...bring on fall!

This was my sister's favorite time of year and I frequently helped her decorate. I plan on filling my own home this year with loads of fall goodness in her honor. I've already stocked up new fall decor items and started a few crafty fall projects.

Need some inspiration for your own home? The posts featured below have given me loads of inspiration for fall decorating. They are stunning and simple--my favorite combination! Which would you love to try for your home?
1. Placemat Pillows / Wonderfully Made by Leslie
Remember how I mentioned Target's Dollar Spot earlier? Well, I saw these Grateful placemats and almost bought a bunch. I felt like they would make my fall tablescape too busy and ended up passing on them. Leslie had the perfect idea for them though--turn them into fall pillows. Brilliant! Looks like I'll be taking another trip to Target soon.

2. Metallic Fall Jars / The Country Chic Cottage
These bright red and gold jars are perfect for fall! Oh, and I love the idea of placing wheat stems inside.

3. Fall Wreath / Anika's DIY Life
How cute is this wreath?! Can you believe that it took only 4 minutes and $10 worth of supplies to make. Be sure to visit Anika's blog to see a video tutorial on how it was all put together.

4. Outdoor Metal Pumpkins / The Navage Patch
I love a good Pottery Barn Inspired project. Why spend a huge amount on something that you can just make yourself and have fun doing it?! I think these galvanized metal pumpkins turned out even better than the ones that inspired them.
Now it's time for...

Meet your hostesses!
