Go out to your yard and grab some sticks and weeds…

Weeds
believe it or not, these weeds can be transformed once they’re paired down and put on display…?!

Acorns! Buy them or search for them in your yard. But watch out for bugs!

A couple little jars and few acorns go a long way to help your space feel Fall-ified.

And don’t forget about the sparkly ones!

And add some pumpkins to the mix. We love to spray paint them white and gold. Or even use them as a centerpiece.
