I did not have an arsenal of fall decorations. But, after seeing all the incredible decorations on Pinterest and other blogs I was totally inspired to work on my collection.
These are some of the fall views from my house:
Remember this toolbox turned planter? My daisies’ days were over so I switched them out for mums.
This wooden tool box was a Restore find for only $2.40 and the contents were various thrift and Restore treasures costing under $3. I love it as the centerpiece on my island. I can’t wait to change it up when the seasons change.
I picked up this crate at a flea market in WV for only $3. The basket and flower arrangement on top was 75% off at my local American Cancer Thrift Store making them $1.25.
I found these pillows at Dollar General for 75% off. Check out the post on this amazing deal.
I came across the dryer vent pumpkin tutorial at A Diamond in the Stuff and knew I had to duplicate them.
I had found some dryer vent at ReStore for $4 and was able to make 3 pumpkins out of the vent with a little left over for a different project.
These little pumpkins on my piano were also found at A Diamond in the Stuff and were super easy to make. I used leftover wood scraps and paint from other projects so they didn’t cost me a penny…LOVE IT!
The wreath hanging above the piano is a simple, repurposed supply project. Here’s what I did:
I cut a circle out of cardboard and then cut a ton of circles out of material from a stained shirt and an old skirt. (my material circles were not all the same size and were more of ovals than circles…I was just randomly cutting, didn’t use a pattern and it came out fine)
Next I just squeezed the center of the circles together and glued them on the cardboard.
I just kept filling it in and decided as I went along how full I wanted it to be. ( I really based this on how much material I had)
It was time consuming but really easy and basically free. Can’t beat free!
I’m beginning to like fall, although I’m desperately going to miss summer. With all the beautiful decorations and gorgeousness of the outdoors, I think I’ll give fall a chance.
