Smells like Fall

Pin It In my post Fall Wreath I talked about my issue with spending a lot of money on fall decorations and wreaths. So here I am going to share with you a few things I did this year to decorate for fall. AND the best part I spent under $22.00 and that INCLUDES the wreath! :)

Fall Wreath


So, how did I do it you ask? Well I started with some great ideas on Pinterest. Check out my pinterest account HERE it will give you a sneak peak inside my head! :)


Back to decorating, actually lets just start with some photos!



Front door, I am not leaving these jars out all the time but when I am expecting company they will be out and lite. :)


Canning jar, raffia around the rim, white sand and a harvest candle. Leads to stunning!! :) 
You might recognize these from
Decorations at a Biker Party post, all I did was switch out the candle.

I made a trip to the dollar store for 2 bags of mini gourds and to Walmart for some plastic gourds, a box of small pine cones, a bag of coffee beans, a bag of popcorn, a bag of green split peas, and a bag of red beans. There is my costs, now I did have to go to the basement and pull out a bunch of glass ware (that I have mainly purchased at garage sales this summer) and candles. And on to the picture tour. :)



Sneak peak on next weeks  blog about game night! Loved the table centerpiece.



The next one is coffee beans and a vanilla candle YUMMY smelling!!


Do you notice chestnuts? I did not mention those before because I did not buy them, we picked them from the yard. Yes, the squirrels in my neighborhood are going to starve now this winter BUT they look so so cool! :)




I did the ivory gourds because I saw them on pinterest and thought they looked so COOL!! I thought they helped balance the ivory candles through out the rest of the room. In each cylinder there is one bag of gourds from the dollar store spray painted ivory, some pine cones and chestnuts. And I think they are one of my favorites in the room right now. Way cute!



I love love love the chestnuts, I even left some in their shells.


So that is my fall decor, my living room smells amazing but I am craving coffee all the time now! lol

Hope you all had a great weekend.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I love all of the pieces that you made and put together, especially the coffee beans and vanilla candle and especially the canning jars and raffia for the steps outside. I have animals so putting out all the other decorations you made would just get eatten, but I may have to copy the jars for the outside. They will look so pretty on my porch.

  2. Thank You Sherry!
    Here is the funny thing, we have 2 dogs and the smaller one (mocha) keeps trying to eat the chestnut but it is bigger than her mouth so they are still around! LOL
