Fun in the fall: Suggested way to decorate in the fall

Apple Barn

Colorful accessories go hand & hand with crisp fall days. Begin with bright mums, surrounded by orange, green, & beige pumpkins. Place them all on a straw bale, with corn stalks as a backdrop. Add a bundle of Indian corn in the front, along with a few gourds, and you have a simple, yet striking fall display. Of course, this is only the beginning of fall decorating. The number of objects available to continue the fall theme is limitless.

All the tools you need for this fun activity can be found at Apple Barn.
