Here are some pictures of my fall decor in better light.
Uggg, I still got a glare on one of the pictures. Getting a good picture of this has been really hard! And yes, I know everything is a little crooked and not quite right. My kids are still not sure what to think of this and will touch it (and play Star Wars through it!)
Here is what I did
I stole, ummmm, copied Melissa's Dollar Tree Hurricane Vases and filled them with stuff from the Dollar Tree and JoAnn Fabrics. I also printed a picture of my little guy from last fall and put it in a frame I had lying around. I spray painted the scrolly part in front to blend in with the table.
For the other side of the table I took a lantern I bought from PartyLite a million years ago when I had no kids and a "real" job that has been hanging in my garage for the last 9 years (seriously, it has been hanging on the garage door track since we moved in because I could not figure out what to do with it). Add a picture of my older son and a black picture frame that was hanging in our hallway. I took some Orange craft paint mixed with mid-evil gold glaze to tone down the black frame.
Here I ran into a slight problem. The frame did not have a stand. No worries, because I am such a fantastic house keeper, I still had this guy laying around
Yep, a Santa stocking holder. He has been moved around a million times in the last 9 months since everything else from Christmas is in the attic. Now he is a picture frame holder.
On top of my refrigerator I found a clear plate that I swear I have NEVER seen before. Painted some orange craft paint on the back and stuck a spider on the front and now the middle of my table has a little height.
Then I found this silver tray with bunnies on it (again, I have no idea where this stuff came from!)
Covered the bunnies with some leaves and a pumpkin and I am DONE!
Total Cost: $14.50--I am thrilled!
2 Vases from Dollar Tree $2
2 Candle holders from Dollar Tree $2
Leaves and Pumpkins from Dollar Tree $4
Leaves and Pumpkins from JoAnn's $5
Craft Paint $1.50
Still trying to figure out what to put above it on the wall,but for now Fall greets up when we walk in the house.
