Whimsical Woodland Autumn Forest

I decided to decorate the entry for fall this year in a theme that is a little out of my comfort zone......a whimsical woodland autumn forest.   I had so much fun creating my autumn forest....hope you like it!

I began my fall forest by creating a banner using Kerryanne's Handmade club kit for September.    My banner has forest mushrooms,  animals,   berries,  and of course pumpkins.   

I created a paper wreath to hang over my banner that has fall leaves,  berries,  roses,  and butterflies on it.

I created a floral design under my banner using large mushrooms,  roses,  and pink owls.....

Next to my floral design is a picture of the vision I had in my head for a fall forest......

I also thought there should be fairies in my fall forest......

I put fall touches on the shelves on each side of the banner.    I have fall foliage,  paper fall pumpkins & leaves,   and sweet white owls.

I decorated the top of my big mailbox with a white enamel vase full of fall flowers and leaves,   and a woodland owl,  and a rustic pinecone pumpkin.

Here is a link to Kerryanne's blog where you can find her Handmade Club Kit for September and create your own Autumn forest........

I always enjoy your visits so much,   please come back again soon! 



  1. I love this look. Can you tell us how you made the paper wreath?

  2. I adore animals in whimsical scenes. This is darling Penny you do such a great job and you always make me smile. I'm headed over to Kerryanne's site....thank you!

  3. Good morning Penny, I do love the mushrooms and owls. The are so beautiful. I like the cooler tones rather than so much orange, black and brown. This kind of reminds me of when Joan River's daughter got married. They designed a Winter wonderland. This is like a frosty Fall morning.
    Thanks for the wonderful beauty you create for us to view.

  4. Love it! It turned out really cute.

  5. I love how whimsical and it looks. The neutral colors look beautiful against the splashes of color!
