Fall Decorating on a Budget


AutumnColors
Simple and thrifty ideas for fall decor from items around the house. I used a 3-tiered stand with fall picks on sale and pinecones and acorns from our neighborhood. I decorated our piano like a mantel (since we don't have one!) and used candle holders that were spray painted white with candles wrapped in burlap, ribbon and string. Other than the two pumpkins outside ($7 total) I spent

    Loved seeing what you did with your tiered basket, Marty. It and the rest of your decor look so pretty! I bought one of those tiered baskets at GW and haven't been able to figure out what to do with it. Now I know! Thanks for the inspiration.

    You're welcome, Suzy. I did the same thing! I bought one at a yard sale and my family thought it was ugly :( I saw a pic on Pinterest and that was it!
