I’m all about cheap and easy decorations for the holidays. If I can reuse something I already have, save something from the garage, or buy it for super cheap at a thrift store, it’s my type of project. ALL of these fall decorations are just that – upcycled from stuff you might already have laying around the house, or thrift store finds. (Click on the image to view the complete tutorial.)
Here’s the easiest place to start – find some acorns and add paint and glitter!
Use a vintage dust pan and some corn to decorate your front door:
Search through your dresser for old flannels and sweaters and create a unique table runner:
Dig through that scrap wood pile and glue together some pumpkins:
Any type of branch can be cut in half to create this candle holder centerpiece:
Need a place for those apples after visiting the orchard? Create your own tiered storage with vintage enamelware:
Reuse those old fabric scraps to make colorful ghosts:
Mason jar ring pumpkins aren’t new – but try adding some color with Washi tape:
Old picnic paper plate holders work great for DIY front door signs:
Use fabric (or real) leaves to cover an old glass jar:
Or use those old glass jars to make candle holders with leaf pattern:
Finally, one last project for those old fabric scraps – make a pumpkin!
