New Fall Decorations for Under $7

The other day my daughter was home sick. So since I couldn't run the errands that I had originally planned for that day, I decided to make good use of my time at home.

I had some projects that I had been wanting to do.

The above photo is my mantel above my fireplace. This is what I have up currently for Fall.

This wreath was made with coffee filters and a dollar store wreath. Total cost was $2.50 and I have half the filters leftover for another project.

This red/burgandy charger was from Target. I got the two pack for $2.50. The candle and candle holder was a gift from mother-in-law. The pumpkin my daughter made in her current pottery class.

Dollar store ceramic pumpkin. $1.

I already had these frames and they were currently in storage. I simply printed out the word "Fall" and put them in the frames. I printed out a bird and put two of my little bird decorations with it. I think it turned out really cute. My husband thinks it spells FAEL. But that is a cursive "l".  Total cost of this was free. 

I love that decorating does not have to cost a lot of money.

  1. Love it all. The top of the mirror looks great.

  2. Great ideas! I have so many picture frames in storage! Now I know what to do with them!

    Thanks for sharing!
