Easy, Cheap Fall Décor

When fall hits Texas, we have this glorious season for about two months. It's my absolute favorite season, hence why we got married in October! :) I love to decorate for fall, but I don't like to spend a ton of money. I've had most of my fall décor for five years or more, and I purchased most of it from Dollar Tree or the dollar aisle at Target. 

As y'all may know, I'm not a crafter. I just don't craft. I'm {sadly} no Martha. 

But when I saw these precious little acorns in our front yard, I knew I had to do something with them. I started collecting them last week and kept them in a Ziploc bag in our kitchen for "safe keeping." I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but I knew it was something! 

Then I realized I needed something "fall" to put on my little kitchen island, and came up with the easy idea of putting the acorns in a square vase, plopping a candle in the middle and calling it a day. It's nothing spectacular, innovative or difficult; I just thought it was cute and wanted to share it with y'all! 

The total cost of this was $2.89: the cost of the candle I picked up at Target yesterday. {You can buy cheaper ones at dollar stores, but I was already there -- and had Walker -- so it was easier to just make one trip with the little guy!} The acorns were obviously free, and Walker had a fun time helping me find them in the front yard! I have had the square vase since Brandon and I got married, and it came from Michael's. 

Happy Fall, Y'all! 


  1. Love the acorn idea! Did you do anything special to clean them?

  2. Someone else had little acorns with their candles as an inspiration today and I love it--so easy!

  3. Great idea! The amount of acorns in my backyard is unreal so I can definitely do this.

  4. Very cute fall décor idea!
