As you probably guessed from this post, I’m not one to skip over holidays, and of course I’m that obnoxious person that feels the need to decorate for every.single.one.of.them. But all those holidays can take a toll on your wallet, between food, presents, and decorations. So if I can, I like to reuse, recycle and redo whatever I can. Which is exactly why, when you scroll through these pictures, you will see how I turned a lot of our halloween decorations into our Thanksgiving decorations.
Anything rustic, woodsy or gold is perfect for fall or Thanksgiving decorating.
Flowers are an easy and relatively inexpensive way to spruce up a space. For Thanksgiving I like to get flowers in red, yellows and oranges and I like adding things like wheat stalks, poppy pods, or cotton to the bouquet to make it look more fall appropriate.
This pumpkin is one of my favorite fall decorations. To take it from halloween to thanksgiving, I removed it from the “creepy witch brewing corner” and surrounded it with golden fruits instead.
Items from nature are some of my favorites to decorate with. Not only do they look great, they’re also environmentally friendly (no wrappers or plastic to toss out) and they are definitely budget friendly (hello big fat $0 spent!). Some of my favorite nature items include- leaves (seen above), acorns, pinecones, birch bark, twigs, dried flowers, dried leaves, and berries (just be sure you don’t eat them!).
Hope you all have a great weekend, and if you haven’t yet, pretty please with a cherry on top enter my contest (it ends Sunday night) and don’t forget to share it with your friends!
