You can see in this shot from the set of Studio 5 how nicely you can fit simple tribal details into your fall florals and garlands.
I started by selecting my color scheme. I picked some traditional fall colors--gold, yellow, magenta--and then I added some blues in to balance out the warm colors. Then, to pull in the tribal/southwest theme, I added a terra cotta color and a muted turquoise (or sage) color.
To create a tribal feel, I pulled in some traditional shapes--arrowheads (triangles) and feathers.
I also included natural textures such as wood, leather, jute twine, and wheat stalks, dried plants & leaves, and pinecones.
I also included some wood slice photo displays that I made recently. I love how the natural wood and the tribal rub-on designs fit in with the
Finally, I made a banner and garland to match the rest of the decor. Stitching together small paper strips is so easy, but looks very cool as a tribal element. I was able to include some tribal chevron shapes by layering different color flag banner pieces.
Well, I hope these ideas have inspired you to try some tribal decor for your Thanksgiving get-together this year. It fits perfectly into your fall decor, and is a natural choice for the holiday.
