No smell says Fall better than cinnamon and this cinnamon broom fall garland from Mom Foodie is a great way to infuse your home with the sweet scent in a way that looks amazing.

Recycled Succulent Planter
Succulents look amazing all year long and are extremely easy to care for, making them the perfect indoor décor to dress up with burlap and lace, like these recycled succulent planters from Creative Green Living.
