{Fall Craft Week} Fall Decorating Ideas


Welcome to day two of Fall Craft Week.
This past week I spent decorating my house. I was told I could spend no money
this month on crafting. Not in the budget :<
But that's ok it made me get even more creative.
I used everything I had on hand.
I think I came up with some great Fall decorations.
Check them out!


I bought this charger plate in the dollar section at Target. It was part of a two-pack. The first plate I used to make my Halloween Rosette Wreath.
This time I decided to keep this craft indoors.
I added a vinyl W and some cute Rosettes and lace. 15 minutes later I was done. The plate was already metallic Gold, so no painting required.
I love quick projects like these.


This dresser is by our front door. It needs some revamping, but that is for another day.  I have a pine-cone turkey my son made and a Fabric Pumpkin displayed.
I also have my awesome Better Homes and Garden Scentsy knockoff. Purchased from Wal-Mart. Oh how I love Wal-Mart! I am not ashamed to admit it:)


The green and white striped rosettes, in the photo collage, were a simple project I did last week. They were originally saucer plates. I hot glued fabric on it and then I had fun fall rosettes to hang on my wall.


In my hallway I have my fall plate I made.
Tutorial coming this week, or you can see it over HERE. 

I also made the wreath on the mirror. Can you guess what it is?
It is made from some paper plates. I stacked a few on top of one another and cut out the middle. Wrapped it with tulle and lace, then added some rosettes.
Now I have a mini Fall wreath for my hallway.

Now onto the kitchen....


I made the subway Art at a craft night with friends.
I made the candy corn vase last month.


I busted out the chalkboard paint and painted another plate. I hot glued a bow and I was done. This is right by the kitchen sink. It is a great reminder when I am washing loads and loads of dishes. Yep I hand dishwasher for this gal!

And that about does it.
We are still in the process of decorating.
I love having my littles create fun things for our home during the holidays.
This is what will make up the rest of our decor.

So there you have it...
simple decorating without spending a dime.
Oh how I love the word FREE....
and so does my hubby!

See you tomorrow for a yummy fall treat recipe
and later this week we have Jen, from Two Yellow Birds Decor.
She will be sharing a tutorial and a giveaway all in one day.

See you all tomorrow!
