Momrn2 at My Quiet Corner, is asking us all to give out Fall Ideas. Ways to decorate for the season without having to spend too much money. I'm all for that.
One thing I do is go to Walmart and look through the $1 a yard fabric, I can usually find seasonal fabrics which I use to make curtains, placemats, tablecloths or pillows to match the season we're in.
Another thing I do, is a great way to use up old cans. The kids love helping too, and they look adorable once they're finished. I use tons of cans a week, either for soups or sauces or whatever....instead of throwing them out, I wash them out really well....then I make Tin Can Twinkles.
I found this idea in a magazine many years ago, and though I didn't keep the whole magazine, I did keep the article, so I'm sharing it with you.
The only thing I don't do is paint the stars on, just another way to save money. I buy inexpensive black paint, but then I use the nails and hammer to make the shape of the stars, instead of using a stencil and pain like it suggests....but hey, you can do which ever way you want.
If you have any Fall Ideas to share, go on over to My Quiet Corner and add your name to Mr. Linky. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with too.....great idea Momrn2 :)
