I went to Old Time Pottery for a few things to spruce up the front yard. Have you seen all the great fall decor they have? My problem with buying store bought decor is that I like to have things no one else has. So how do you do that when there are hundreds of the same things? My way to make that happen is personalizing what I purchase.
I started out with this bench in the front yard. I purchased a pillow for it ($4.99) but it was plain and boring.
I wanted more color and I wanted it to be fall. All these fall pillows I have seen online and in the catalogs are so expensive so I just created my own. I found these adorable metallic place mats in a shape of a leaf for $2.99. With some spray adhesive added to the back, I gently pressed it to the front of my pillow for some fall pizzazz! I wanted a quick inexpensive makeover that looked good.
To really secure it, try adding a few stitches around the outside of the leaf.
Wow what a difference!
The copper color is perfect for fall. This worked well and gave me the look I wanted. I added an adorable ceramic owl lantern ($9.99) to the bench. Owls are great anytime but fall is the best time!
Now I will have a little light at night. I just need a battery operated tea candle.
Now for my absolute favorite Old Time Pottery buy. The pumpkin ground pick for $24.99.
I love the size of it for the money. It is metal and really looks great in the yard!
Best of all…it won’t rot! I turned it into a sign by dipping my brush in some paint and free handing “Happy Fall” to the front of it. I also used some vinyl numbers I had. I added the number of the house to its leaves. “504”
Again, a nice quick idea.
So for less than $45 and 20 minutes, I created a new fall display using things from Old Time Pottery!
I would say that these were great finds to achieve my fall decor on a budget!
Create something different by adding a little creativity to some already great products.
I will still add some real pumpkins as the weather gets cooler. Did you know Old Time Pottery carries them as well?
I see another trip in my future!
