Fall Decorating with Natural Elements

Fall Decorating with Natural Elements
Fall is the perfect season to head outdoors instead of a store to find items to decorate with. Decorating with natural elements is inexpensive, if not entirely free, and is an activity that you can involve the kids. My little ones have been helping collect acorns and pinecones for projects. Lets take a look at 25 Fall Decorating Ideas using Natural Elements. If you find a project you want to know more about, simply click on the link below each picture to be taken to the post.
