Workin’ With What Ya Got- Decorating Your Pad For Fall On The Down Low

I love fall!
I especially love to get out the fall decorations and play, but I waited this year until September 19th.
This is a big deal because it has not been unheard of in this house for me to put up fall when it is still 85 degrees out.

 

See that burlap wreath?
My friend Rebecca made it for me!

 

I got some of this satin “sash” ribbon on clearance at Wal-Mart for two dollars and looped it around the burlap wreath.
Then I took a push pin and pinned it to the wall above the mirror.
I let a little overlap at the top to cover the pin.

 

I love this look!
Are you sick of looking at my burlap wreath yet?
I’m not.
A few weeks ago, I found these at my local Dollar Tree:
Cute spooky paper cutouts!
For myself who does not possess a Silhouette/Cricut machine, this was a HUGE find!
I actually squealed when I saw these and chatted away with the teenage boy ringing me up, who I am sure couldn’t care less about paper cut-outs but these were only a dollar and I was so excited! I did not know when I bought them what I would do with them but knew if I didn’t get them then, they would be gone.
*Update: I was just in Dollar Tree a few days ago and as I predicted, they were all gone*
Here is what I did with them:
 I stuck them to the corners of my mirror!

 

 

I also added them to my mantel.

 

 

Then my friend, Melissa, made this adorable banner for my mantel:
She used burlap for the pennants, her Cricut for the letters, and some cream-colored ribbon that she just used the glue gun to attach to the burlap.
No sewing involved.
I love this!

 

 

Thank you, Melissa!

 

Here is my flea market shutter!

 

Happy First Week O’ Fall!
