One of the benefits of being a teacher is getting discounts at a number of stores, one of them being most craft stores. Normally I get 15% off at ACMOORE but this weekend I got 25% off! If you check their ads they usually have a 15% off coupon so always check before you go shopping. My favorite season is fall so it's no surprise I love to decorate for it, but it can get pretty expensive!
One of the things I love to do is to create my own flower arrangements with high-quality flowers from the craft store. I love that they last all season & are very affordable. The two flowers pictured (orange buds & full bouquet) cost under $5 each! To make fake flowers look good you need to 1. pick a nice looking flower that goes with the season & 2. put them in a nice vase. For the orange buds I just placed them in a thin stemmed vase I had on my dresser, this instantly made the fake blooms look great! The full bouquet took a little more work, I cut the stem way down & filled a container with moss before putting the flowers in. I love the way these two blooms turned out! The vase that the full bouquet is in was only $1.99 at the craft store so it was a very affordable fall decor DIY! I'm planning on making a wreath for outside my door which I will also share on here!
Whats your favorite fall decor?
