Today I’m sharing some free printable watercolour leaf art for your fall decor.
Each year as August rolls over into September I feel like I’m leaving summer behind kicking and screaming and begging for more. Maybe it’s the knowledge that we have several months ahead of rainy, grey days and shortened hours of daylight. Maybe it’s getting back into the routine of school and the busyness of after school activities, homework, and packing lunches. Ugh, how I hate packing lunches every night.
Whatever it is, one thing that always helps me get into the fall spirit is changing up the decor touches around our home. As the mornings and evenings start to gain that crisp bite of fall and the leaves around us start to turn, it seems natural that the decor inside gets warmer and cozier and relates to what we see going on in the world outside our windows.
Since we’ve packed up a good percentage of our belongings and put them in storage while we build our new house, the fall decor this year will be a little more streamlined then in years past. Truth be told, I accidentally packed my entire fall decor bin at the very back of my absolutely STUFFED 10×20 storage unit and I have no desire to remove everything in order to be able to access it. So… I’m going to be getting a little more creative and thrifty with my fall decorating, and using simple printable art is a super easy and thrifty way to create a seasonal feel.
Creating these simple fall leaf printables and then using them to stage our cabin’s mantel really got me in the mood for Fall. I started to remember all the good things about this beautiful season. The sunny but crisp days, enjoying fires outside, wearing cozy sweaters and boots, and pumpkin spice everything. So letting go of summer isn’t all bad!
I love how the warm tones in them complement the warmer tones in our cabin fireplace. I have a tour of the cabin coming soon (I promise!). It’s been all white and blue this summer, but I feel like I want to bring in more warm neutrals for the fall season here. These fall leaf printables will definitely be featured somewhere in our decor… maybe even on the mantel. Now I’m looking forward to adding a few more fall decor touches around here; and since I’ve packed away all my pumpkins it seems like I’ll be making some new ones. Be on the lookout for more fall projects, simple DIYs, and decor ideas coming soon!
