autumn 4 less

Autumn is such a wonderful season! The beautiful colors and cozy weather. Not too cold and not too warm..just right. In our home, fall is a time of family togetherness. We spend more time being thankful for our many blessings and that we have each other. I just love doing crafts projects for the autumn season.

Here is my fall village from a thrift store $3.50...a cream cloth and leaves complete the look(the kids love it!)

Here is my autumn centerpiece. I crafted it from the dollar tree for around five dollars. (glass vase, flowers, wreath, pumpkins, & mini scarecrows)

This is where my copper pumpkins sit. The topiary leaves were also from the dollar tree and three dollars to complete the project with hot glue.

A $1 thrift store find embellished with dollar tree accents. All for under $10

Two .25 craft pumpkins replace my candles, simple and elegant.

Kid friendly light treatments. $2 for vine and mini jack o lanterns buckets.

Buffet cabinet with fall crafts galore. (all from dollar tree, except pine

Of course it wouldn't be fall without the horn of plenty. (made from DT accents and thrift store finds)

It really doesn't take a lot to create a cute and creative home for autumn. To add that warm and cozy feeling, I get fall spiced candles from any dollar store to always have a sweet smells in our home. And baked goods also add a natural I also cook plenty of soups, and stews during this time help get us in the winter mood. I hope you take the time to enjoy your family this autumn season. Happy Harvest!!
