Happy Fall Everyone!I absolutely love the crispness in the air and the undeniable urge to light my apple cinnamon candles in the house.
I recently browsed around Pinterest and found alot of inspiration for fall decorating ideas. Last year I couldn't find my fall wreath and then we had our pumpkins stolen off our front porch for Halloween, so I lacked inspiration last year for decorating for Thanksgiving and such.
But, ta-da! This year I was inspired by many of my other blogger friends and pinterest.
Wanting to save on money while decorating I visited our local 'dollar general' and 'dollar store' in town (yes, I said town...we live in the country and it takes me about 30 minutes to get to town where the main attraction is the super Walmart). I hit up the after summer decor sale at 'dollar general' and scored on some urns. Got them for $3 each. Then I hit up the 'dollar store', which usually has lots more arts and craft items than 'dollar general'. I purchased some moss (sheets and then bushels) and some super cute green wired ribbon. All in all, I spent about $10 at both stores. I had just gotten some gourds for $5 a piece at the local grocery store that matched our house perfectly. I filled the urns with paper grocery bags for filler and then topped with the moss. I made sure that the moss layer was a little below the top edge of the urn so that the wind would not carry away my dollar store moss. I then placed my gorgeous gourds in the middle. I found my fall decor box in the garage filled with my fall wreath and some scarecrows from another fall decoration a couple of years ago and vuala!
I loved how it turned out and feel super festive!
