Fall Has Fallen At Ten June

I might be a little late jumping on the fall decor bandwagon this year, but fall has officially arrived at the Ten June household! David and I have challenged ourselves with a no-spend October (meaning we're not spending on anything that's not already budgeted for, like household items, utilities and the occasional purchase we've been saving for) but we decided to bend the rules by $20 for our fall decor. So that was my budget, folks. Hey, I like a challenge.

Sit back, pretend you're on a hayride with a hot pumpkin latte in your hand
and welcome to the fall tour of my casa!


I dressed up my front door with my DIY wreath from last season. I also added $6.66 worth of yellow mums and a $3.00 pumpkin to the front porch.



I simply tweaked a few things on our regular mantle to make it feel more fallish. 





The owl was a $4 HomeGoods purchase (which I was pretty excited about, considering I've seen them at West Elm for $20!). By the way, how fabulous is that bright white trim paint looking! Love it.


I did a free switcharoo by replacing the framed botanical print post cards from our regular mantle with beautiful leaves we found on our mountain trip last weekend. Cute and sentimental- I'm sold.

I added a few fall leaves to my DIY paintchip garland, just to step it up a notch.



Fresh picked apples from Elijay, Georgia- yumm!

I spent $5 on an assortment of mini pumpkins and gourds to scatter throughout the house. 






There you have it, fall around my house for under $20! I really like all of the natural elements that I used this year- makes it feel like fall without going Clark Griswold with the holiday decor.

Have you decorated for fall?

  10. Love all your decorations, I'm running late this year and haven't put most of mine up yet... so sad about your owl, though -- I tried to buy that exact thing at TJ Maxx this weekend and all 4 they had were broken and they had to pull them from the shelves. Gah!

  11. Michelle, your home looks beautiful. Enjoyed the tour of fall decor. My husband and I are doing the no spending thing except for what is on the budget. Certain amount of cash for the week and no more. Let me tell you, it is very very hard!

  12. I absolutely love the mini-pumpkins in the hurricane vases! I wish I could decorate for Fall this year...it's one of my favorite times to decorate. It just makes the house so warm and homey as the temps start to drop. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait for next year when we move into our fixer-upper. For now, we'll just enjoy the beuaitful stuff we see on your blog! :)

  16. I love your budget challenge - I might try to do that. I've gotten a few things out but I still need to buy our pumpkins. I'm going to keep it simple though. You've done a great job.

  19. We went to Ellijay for the apple festival on Saturday! We skipped the fairgrounds though and just went to a u-pick farm and got a pumpkin at Burt's. I decorated for cheap with the help of Target. I got a grapevine pumpkin for $2.50 in the dollar section, and a natural-woven placemat for $3.99 in the kitchen section to go under it.

  20. I love your eclectic style. The leaf project is my favorite, I think. I often run across leaves I've put in old telephone books to dry and have forgotten about. I just can't throw them away -- the colors are gorgeous, as are yours.

  21. Swoon! I am totally stealing your leafs in a vase on the mantle idea! Love!

  27. I can't believe you did ALL of that for $20- you are amazingly thrifty and crafty!! Love the tiny pumpkins in the candle holders, too cute. I read your other blog about the Real Deals trip- can't believe you held fast and didn't spend any money...you are so strong!!
