Happy Fall

A couple weeks ago I went into psyco mom mode and went crazy on my fall decor.  I think it was a form of nesting and I needed t o get my new shelves decorated.  Kurt worked hard and made my wish of open shelving in my dining room come true.  We picked out our supplies at Lowe's and Kurt stained, poly, and assembled our new shelves.  Once they were hung I wasn't quite in love yet.  I loved the shelves but it was hard to tell how much without decorating them.  SO, the next week I set out on pinterest to decorate them for fall affordably.

Here's what I came up with.  I'm happy with them!  And really they cost almost nothing!  Most of the supplies came from Dollar Tree!

They are hung!


I'm sure you've all seen the hurricane vases from Dollar Tree.  This is the third year I've used them but I decorated them differently this year, thanks to pinterest.  I filled one with popcorn kernels and the other with moss left over from the moss wreath I made.  The moss and the wreath came from DT.  The pumpkins pictured are from DT as well. The framed pictures were printed from pinterest.  The last picture shows the wreath I made with another printable and our pumpkin rug I scored at Ollie's last fall.

I'm dying to decorate our front porch but I'm not sure we have the money right now.  I'd love some mums and pumpkins!

Have you decorated yet?


  1. You did a great job, Mama! I can't wait to see what I can come up with in a pinch! xo

  2. Love it! Love it! Love it! I bet you won't regret those shelves...you can decorate them for any season! We haven't decorated yet but after I get home from work and Zumba, I'm going to make some chili and drag out the Fall box! :) Yay Fall!

  3. Thanks Cathy!! Can't wait to see what you do!

    Jenna, that sounds like a fun night! We don't have a mantle so I plan to decorate these similarly! :)

  4. We don't have a mantle, either, and we just replaced our coffee table with an ottoman, so aside from our bookshelves full of books, we have no flat surfaces to decorate. Boo. How did you decorate your shelves for winter?
