Super Easy Fall Decor

20120811-132350.jpg

I am getting the itch for fall and am SO over all the 90+ degree weather Colorado has been having for most of the summer. So, I decided to start the fall crafting in the house to hopefully change my bad attitude. My crafting time is limited {as with most moms}, so I wanted something quick, easy, and cheap. For our wedding we received some hurricane candle holders. I LOVE them, but always seem to draw a blank when it comes to putting stuff in the vase part. For the longest time they were home to black rocks we used at our wedding, then some small Christmas ornaments, and for the past 9 months have sat sadly vacant. While walking through Michael’s I stumbled upon some fall garland. Sparkly, shiny red, orange and gold maple leaves attached to wire. Seeing that inspired me to make these. It seriously is only 3 steps and they make me smile every time I see ’em!

I told you it was easy…Right!? And it only cost $3.99. Obviously it would cost a little more if you needed to purchase the vases, but you could really use anything. I was thinking they would even look cute in mason jars with LED tea lights in the bottom. Oh, the endless possibilities;)
