I adore fall. I love the crisp weather, the crinkling leaves, the colors, the light, the lead-up to the holidays…you name it. What I don’t love are the crazy price tags on seasonal decorations!
So this year we took matters into our own hands and are making some of our own. We started with some dried hydrangeas from the garden. We purchased a $6 wreath and some crafting supplies and for under $20 we have a great wreath. Sure beats the pre-made ones that were $60 and up! For future seasons we could easily change up the bow or add some different colors for a completely different look.
Next on the list is spray-painting a few old flower pots to go on the front porch. We are sticking with mums and not much else this year. Our neighbors sent us some amazing looking squash which will add to the decor until they’re eaten.
We also scattered a few inexpensive decorations around the house with some more dried flowers. If you’re careful to choose ones that aren’t completely obvious in their seasonality, you can probably rotate them around the house throughout the year.
Now, if only I had some crazy embroidery skills I’d have some awesome throw pillows…
