Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute to show a few pics of my fall decor. This year, I really wanted to do a little autumn decorating. Usually I just buy a couple pumpkins, but this autumn I was on a mission to add some fall festivities for under $20!
My first stop was the dollar store. The dollar store is a great go to for your basic decorations like florals, vases, garland, ect. These items will give a fuller more complete background to your nicer decorative candles, glitter pumpkins, ect.
I was thrilled with the selection I found at my local Dollar Tree! I ended up with
- 4 autumn leaf garlands
- 1 Sunflower garland
- A bundle of gold painted Eucalyptus
These garlands really go a long way! I bought five of them with the plans of doubling them up to give them a fuller effect, but they would look great on their own too! The gold/champagne painted Eucalyptus smells amazing and is a lot of bang for your buck!
My next stop was Kohls. I have always wanted battery operated candles with a timer so they would light my home when I was away and add a calming ambiance without having the light them or turn them on every day. These are great if you want candles in a part of your home that is hard to reach because you just turn them on timer mode and they do the rest for you!
These white pillar candles were originally $39.99. They were on 50% off sale for $19.99, I had a coupon for 20% off making them $15.99, then I used Kohls cash which took another $10.00 off. I finally ended up paying $5.99 for this set of four candles!!! I was so excited!
With my candles and florals in hand, my next stop was Walmart. At Walmart I found an adorable little glitter pumpkin for $2.00
I used the garland to run along my tv stand, added a timer candle on one side and a sparkly little pumpkin next to it. I also did the same thing along the top of my hutch desk and used the other three candles there.
I used some of the Eucalyptus sprigs in a little pottery vase I have hanging on my wall. (Christmas gift from my Mother, aww!)
I used the remainder of the Eucalyptus mixed in with my garland ontop of my desk. Check out my next blog posts for pictures of that!
Not bad for $20.00! And that is only half of it!
Do you buy any decorations at the dollar stores?
Thanks for your patience with me, I have some great bloggy ideas for the Christmas season, just need to free up some more time ;)
