My $2 Fall Kitchen Decor {I Told You I Was Thrifty}


So I really went all out on styling my kitchen for Fall this year.  I spent a whopping $2 on a little plastic pumpkin from Walmart.  Everything else you've seen before in some place or another in my house.  I just changed it up a little.



That burlap vase with the leaves is the one from this post, I just turned it around so the bee motif is in the back, then I added a couple of pine cones tied on with jute.  The chalkboard was the one I made for my parents' anniversary party, and the black and white pitcher is the one I got from my BFF for my birthday.  And there's the big-budget pumpkin right there beside it.


The chalkboard art is a product of inspiration I've gathered from my Chalkboard Art board on Pinterest.









Remember this burlap in a gold frame?  I used it for my spoon art in the Spring, but I re-made it into this leaf specimen art for Fall by cutting leaf silhouettes from scrapbook paper I already had.  Just tape on the leaves and labels and you're done!





Nothing too fancy, just fun for Fall.  Remember, you don't need to spend big money on your Fall decor.  Use what you have and dress it up for the season.  Save your money and buy a fabulous Fall handbag instead.  Now that's money well spent!







Stay tuned for my no-budget Fall mantel coming soon.  I'm on a roll.

Sharing this post with a few of these friends and the Fall Nesting Party at The Inspired Room. Check them out for more great inspiration.

  9. OH how pretty! I just love shopping my house to decorate, don't you?!? I've not started my fall decorating but have started to gather things to decorate with. Second blooms of lovely lavender, big bouquets of thyme, a few hydrangea blossoms, and cattails found along the stream beds sprayed with clean spray "paint" to seal them so they don't poof all over the living room.

    Thank you so very much for sharing your inspirations! I am definitely going to have to go take a look at chalkboard art on Pinterest now!! Once again thank you for taking the time to share with us!!

  28. Love your blog, your style and your decor. I was inspired to create the chalkboard art on my little chalk board. I have to say, not too bad for my second attempt at recreating chalk board art...especially since I am not to artistic. Thank you for the inspiration.
