so i went to Wal Mart tonight and spent $20 on my outdoor fall decs. here they are --
1.) indian corn + rope twine + ribbons = door decoration
this was super easy - all i did was bundle up 3 ears of the indian corn with the rope twine and tied a ribbon around it. total cost? $9. (for some reason that rope twine was pretty expensive, it was five dollars! this project would've been a lot cheaper without it...)
2.) indian corn + rope twine = fall garland
i strung up the indian corn on the rope twine by wrapping the rope around the tusks of corn, and then simply tying it onto the railing. i also bought a big pumpkin at Wal Mart for $4.
3.) coffee beans + apple cider scented candles + mason jars = rustic luminaries
i saw this idea in some country decorating magazine, except the woman whose home they were showcasing used these to line her driveway on Halloween night while children were trick or treating. well, i love all things mason jars, so sign me up. i got the mason jars from brad's momma and paid around $8 for the coffee beans and candles. also both at Wal Mart :)
...and the big picture! it's simple, it's cheap...and i love it.
