Update: I absolutely have loved this centerpiece, however the pumpkin turned into an awesome science experiment when we realized it began to grow mold inside the closed jar. Soooo, if you’re going to try this one out yourself, I recommend leaving the jar open or possibly just using it for a few days during the fall season! 😉
Frugal Fall Decorating
Is anyone else just itching to start fluffing up for fall? To be honest, I’ve loved every bit of summer this year, but the minute I see a pumpkin I’m ready to pull out my fall decorations.
So this week when my friend Shannon sent a picture over of the glass container that she’d found at Walmart for $9.99, I knew I had to get started. It’s exactly like this one at Amazon for $9.99, just a bit larger size, so either one would make such a nice centerpiece (and combined they’d be beautiful!)
Now, here’s my trick for those big ole’ jars. Instead of spending a pretty penny filling them up, use some of your stockpiled canned goods as spacers . . .
Then I just filled the jar with dried peas, popcorn, and a pumpkin that I picked up at Walmart for under $10!
Looking for more frugal fall decorating ideas? Here are a few more of my favorites:
This post is linked up to Living Well Spending Less Thrifty Thursday. I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
