Can’t you tell we are obsessed with fall this year? A season filled with family gathers, an abundance of food, and all the pumpkins you can get your hands on. Pumpkins are great to decorate with, they are colorful, sleek, charming and fun; however, they also decay extremely quickly, which can be obnoxious and can cause you to have to change your décor frequently. To achieve a fall vibe without having to use real pumpkins, consider faux ones. Here’s how to use faux pumpkins to bring charm to your décor.
