Searching for a great fall decoration? Look down: You could be walking on it. In the fall, plants produce and discard gorgeous seeds, seed pods, husks, and pinecones. These materials are called naturals by the floral industry. Florists and interior designers use them in arrangements and as decorative accessories. They're inexpensive ($1 to $20), easy to use, and require little to no embellishment.
