The purple and orchid faux leaf colors are just the perfect balance of Fall time feeling, but without having to go to literal into the traditional colors.

And I had people vote during the LIVE crafting session, on whether they wanted me to use a pink painted pumpkin or a hot coral color.   You can see which color won out, ha.

Adding in the black polka dots was the perfect addition and final touch to this fun DIY Colorful Fall Basket.  I always say, when in doubt black polka dots!  But actually adding in black stripes would be amazing, too!
