Hello all, it’s so nice to meet you! I’m Jessica and I blog over at Decor Adventures, where you can find DIY tips, furniture makeovers, home improvement projects and more. Upstate New York is where I call home. Make that an old Colonial built in 1900 with my husband and DIY partner, Dan. By day I’m a worker bee, but by night I’m a knee-pad wearing, drill-wielding, spray painting do-it-yourself project queen. I’m also a graduate student working on my Ph.D. Do I sneak away and redecorate the mantle when I’m supposed to be studying? More often than I can admit!

I started Décor Adventures in 2009 as a creative outlet and a way to share what I love – home decor, crafts and DIY. It is a place for you to find decorating resources, creative ideas and to read about my project fun and mis-adventures along the way. I hope to give you useful, practical resources for styling and enjoying your life and home. You can find all of my projects here.

I’m so glad to be here at Redhead’s! Julie invited me to be a contributor and I couldn’t wait to say yes to share some fun DIY and home decor projects with you. Maybe I’ll throw in some home improvement, holiday fun, and other ideas if you’ll let me?

But let’s stop all the jabbering and see some fall project ideas. First I thought I’d show you some of the ways I bring the season into my home. Fall is such a wonderful time to warm things up inside and it’s so easy to take up some quick season projects that will decorate your house through the new year.

Feather Boa Wreath

One way I like to decorate for fall is with feathers of course because nothing says warm and cozy like a boa made into a wreath. This is the easiest project, all you need is a wreath form and your favorite color feathers. Simply wrap them around the wreath and hang someplace fun, like on a mirror, over a window or on a large picture perhaps? You can even make a white one for the holidays. Read about my feather wreath here.

Turquoise Table Setting

Another way to celebrate the season is with a welcoming table for guests. I brought in unexpected turquoise to brighten up an otherwise neutral pallet by way of chargers, candles and accessories. It’s easy to add a different color to your dining when you have white dishes or another simple palette. Read about my turquoise table setting here.

Fall Home Tour

Come see these projects and more at my fall home tour where you’ll get to meet your host of the tour, Mr. Pumpkin Spice Candle. He it is one of my favorite parts of fall, I love to fill my home with the warm scent of apple cinnamon or spiced pumpkin. I decorated our mantel with an easy leaf garland made from dollar store supplies. Yes, decorating can cost a dollar!
