    I like to go the natural route. So, whether it's baskets, centerpieces, wreaths or what have you, start with the basics: pine cones, cinnamon sticks, berries and (sometimes) pieces of decorative wood you find in your yard. Use these items as your double-season basics. Then, what I do is use picks and ribbon to change them up. For example I'll use autumn leaf and/or mum picks and change them out with 'evergreen' or poinsettia picks, and use autumn ribbon and switch out with a holiday ribbon. This saves lots of money and space because you are not using double the space to store your decor.

    Use leaves sprayed gold, red and orange. You can use branches that are sorted gold. Pumkins, gourds and acorns also look good sprayed gold or white. You can add decorations to the tops that you can change for the different celebrations. These can be labels, ribbons, poinsettia autumn leaves etc.

    Wreath can be made from Hessian burlap and change the tops again.

    If you make bunting cut out three different sizes of the same shape, say you had gold, red, then orange for the fall. Then turn it around to the gold for Christmas. Look on Pinterest for ideas.

    Sorry, didn’t finish. Maybe faux fur of some kind. Then bring in something for each holiday, like a sign, that has a greeting for the holiday. It can even be two sided, have one saying, flip over and another on the back side.

    A basic burlap wreath can be used year round and the look changed with picks, yard finds and ribbon. If you keep to basics you can use things for more than one holiday. Red ribbon could be used for Christmas, Valentine's and 4th of July. I buy picks after the holiday. I have a small block of styrofoam wired onto the wreath, and put my picks there. When the foam is wearing out I put on another.
