I don’t start fall decorating until the official beginning of fall-that’s also Gloria’s birthday. I usually wait until the day after her birthday to bring out the pumpkins, but after being stuck at home due to flooded streets and having no internet connection for a few days, I started early this year! Our internet service has been coming and going. Here’s hoping we will stay connected! This Simple & Budget Friendly Fall Decor was put together using a thrift store mirror and other inexpensive items.
I bought this mirror at my local Goodwill several months ago. I’ve found several there that were all very reasonably priced. This one was around $2.00.
The candle holders are also Goodwill finds. They were priced at .99 each. I spray painted them gold using Krylon Color Master Metallic paint. I’ve had them for a while and used them last year in my Thanksgiving Tablescape. The small pumpkins were purchased last year at Walmart.
This look is all about layering. I started by using some Dollar Tree leaves to cover the mirror. I added the candle holders near each end.
I have to say I was delighted to find these cloth pumpkins at the dollar spot at Target. I was surprised that they were only $1.00 each. I bought some in this greenish-blue color and a few in off white.
The gold acorns were the most expensive part of this fall decor. I found them at Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft. They were on sale, but even on sale the bag of them was around $4.00.
This will be a pretty fall focal point on my buffet.
I’m using flameless candles mostly for safety reasons, plus I already had them. I can leave them on even when we’re not using the room.
It doesn’t take much money to create a one of a kind fall decor piece.
