Over the past month, I have shared some posts on how to decorate your home for Fall by incorporating items purchased at the Dollar Tree. Today is the final post on this topic, and these items could be the easiest, yet most impactful, of all. And spoiler alert: they all involve using fall foliage picks.
First, a little refresher on the decorations purchased at the Dollar Tree, for a total cost of $38. There were candles, bows, fabric pumpkins, succulents, vases, glass pinecones and pumpkins, and several picks of leaves and gourds. Talk about a bang for the buck!
Out of these items, I made a garland you can see here… Fall Garland… Some cute candles with bows seen here… Fall Decor on the cheap… and a pretty dough bowl arrangement seen here…Fall Dough Bowl Arrangement… Today, I am using up the remaining pieces as small accents throughout the kitchen and entryway.
For the first decoration, I took a wood and iron lantern, placed some fall picks from the Dollar Tree, put a candle in the middle, and voila! this arrangement was done. I love the way it adds height to our kitchen table and paired with copper salt and pepper shakers and an orange sweater pumpkin, it will carry this space through the end of November. This particular lantern is open on all sides, but a similar look can be achieved using any lantern you have.
The next area I tackled was the entry table, where there was already an arrangement of succulents, pinecones and greenery in an oblong copper vessel. To make this display feel more seasonal, I simply added a couple of fall picks and two of glass golden pumpkins. The final flourish was to add candy corn to the cute acorn bowl also found at, you guessed it, the Dollar Tree!
For another splash of Fall color, I took a small, hinged basket and filled it with picks, pinecones, and more of the glass acorns and pumpkins. Sitting on the kitchen counter, it just says Fall.
Lastly, I took the remaining picks and placed them in a couple of vases in the kitchen and entry, replacing the greenery that they usually hold. This simple change just reinforces the Fall theme and brings the warm colors of the season indoors.
So that’s a wrap on the Dollar Tree Fall decor challenge I gave myself. I am so happy with how all of these inexpensive items transformed our home for the autumn season, proving that it is possible to have a high-end look without the high-end price tag!
