Thanksgiving/Fall Decorating in Dollar Tree fashion

Well last week I got all my Halloween decorations down & my fall/Thanksgiving decorations up. In amongst all my furniture makeovers I have in my garage right now.
Most of my decorations come from the thrift store
or the Dollar Tree.

Let's take a closer look.

The faux Mercury pumpkins were made using Dollar Tree pumpkins. See how I transformed them here.
The candle pedestals are on are all from the Salvation army from 30 cents to $1.
The "Blessings" glitter sign is from Shopko's fall clearance last year.
The plate is from the thrift store & I just removed the vinyl cling from my Halloween display & replaced it with a fall gel clingy from the Target Dollar spot. The bird tea light holder was a Dollar Tree find earlier in the year. The tree you may remember from my Halloween display. Thrift store find also.

Here is my "Knock Off Wood" table I created here.
Pottery barn was my inspiration for this area. They had fabulous ideas in their fall catalog.
The leaf garland you see is also from the Dollar Tree.

Some of my apothecary jar creations with leaves from the Dollar Tree & twine. See how I made the apothecary jars here. (*all from stuff found at the thrift store or Dollar Tree)

Here is another with some craft grapevine wreaths in the bottom, some loose leaves & a candle.
(*Don't worry folks, I don't plan on lighting these candles)

This twine wrapped glass jar is a creating I made after an "idea" I had for it previously flopped! You win some, you loose some. So this was my fix. I love the texture it brings to the display. (*I will show you how I created this tomorrow...stay tuned!)

Here is another one of my Apothecary jars filled with mini gourds from where else, The Dollar Tree.

I just bought three different colors & mixed them in the jar.

Here is my DIY Cloche. See how I turned this "cheese dome" into a cloche on the cheap here!
I just added a pumpkin from the Dollar Tree.

This apothecary jar I found at Salvation army for 90 cents. I just filled it with acorn vase filler from....The Dollar Tree.

I bought 2 bags. I LOVE acorns. They also had gem shaped ones in the same color schemes.

Another view.

So there you have it folks. My Fall/Thanksgiving display. Although I love how it looks, it is hard to be too excited when all I can think about is my CHRISTMAS display. Hard to compete with my FAVORITE holiday!


I am linking up to these fabulous parties:


  1. All your decorations look beautiful! I love the jar fillers you chose. Thanks for stopping by my blog and so happy to see yours!


  2. Here you go!

    This isn't a turkey as you can plainly see.
    I made it with my hand which is part of me.
    It comes with lots of love especially to say,
    I hope you have a very,
    Happy Thanksgiving Day!

    It is from his preschool a couple years ago. I really love it!



Thanks for the LOVE! I so enjoy hearing what you all have to say!
