DIY Fall Décor


I have been putting off decorating for fall this whole month. It just doesn’t feel right to be turning our home into a cozy autumn haven while I’m wearing a tank top and drinking ice tea. Where’s my scarf, boots, and hot tea? I finally decided to decorate anyway, and maybe it would summon some crisp air. I thought I’d share some of our decorations with you because they didn’t cost us a penny.

I LOVE mason jars. I know, most people who regularly peruse Pinterest love mason jars, but how can you resist? And honestly for all the things I use them for, just about any jar will do. I save most of our jars (from salsas, sauces, etc). Give them a good wash in the dishwasher and remove the label, and you have endless possibilities. Here are a few ideas:

Burlap, fresh foliage, and pinecones...Fall!

Here’s to hoping cooler weather is near. I can’t wait to sit in front of our fireplace with a warm mug of yumminess, and I’m pretty sure that my husband doesn’t think 80° suffices for a fire.


Do you have favorite Fall Decorations that you make or display? If you do, post on Instagram and hashtag #westvalleymoms! We’d love to see how you are bringing fall into your homes.

Elisa is a native Arizonan by birth and a Seattleite by heart. She is a wise, spirited woman who loves feeling the sun on her face, but also enjoys cold rainy days, complete with a cup of coffee and a good book or conversation. After graduating with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and seeing clients for a time, she took a hiatus to love on, play with, and offer copious amounts of hugs to our little girls, Malia and Jayden. She is now back working at Socorro Counseling and Consulting in Downtown Phoenix. Unafraid to laugh at herself and able to see the beauty in others, she makes everyone feel at ease, making her a genuine friend, therapist, and wife. Give her a cute pattern and a sewing machine or some spray paint and a piece of furniture and they are surely to be transformed into some warm piece of art that brightens our living space. She also finds creativity in cooking, making household cleaners, and anything Pinterest. In short, Elisa is stylish, wise, thoughtful, creative woman who makes everyone around her a better person, including her husband (who wrote this bio).
