Creating an Autumn Tray with Dollar Tree Items

Creating an Autumn Tray with Dollar Tree Items

With fall here, there are so many items that can be used to create an autumn tray for your home. Sometimes these items can come from things you already have, from your yard, from the Dollar Tree or a combination of these. My Autumn tray is a combination. 

If you are coming over from The Antiqued Journey, thank you.

For my Autumn tray, I found this light up pumpkin at the Dollar Tree. I thought it would be great for Halloween, but then realized that I wanted this tray to stay out all fall. That meant it had to change a little.

First off, I removed the black netting. It was still not right. The stem was black.

So I decided to wrap twine around the stem to fit in with the rest of my tray.

I found the ribbon at the Dollar Tree and made a couple of bows.

I had bought the pumpkin and leaf sprig at Hobby Lobby on sale. I already had the metal acorns, but you could use real ones or store bought ones. You could also use small pine cones.

I found the burlap leaves at the the Dollar Tree.

I also had the red and yellow leaf candles and some berries to put in the center. 

I am sure you can find similar items to create a tray of your own. The great thing about fall, is that you will find so many great items that you can use to create your own Autumn tray.

20 Easy Fall DIY Decor Ideas that You’ll Absolutely Love

20 Easy Fall DIY Decor Ideas that You’ll Absolutely Love

Don’t miss the recent Redfin article I was featured in: “20 Easy Fall DIY Decor Ideas that You’ll Absolutely Love” With leaves on the ground and pumpkin spice lattes in hand -- there’s no doubt that fall is in full swing. One of our favorite things about this time of year is all the traditions that come with it, like roasting marshmallows by your backyard fire pit or watching scary movies. But nothing makes it feel like the new season is upon us like decorating our homes with festive, fall decor.

Whether it’s gathering materials from your yard to create warm-colored tablescapes or visiting your local craft store to make a DIY fall wreath, there are many creative and easy ways to embrace autumn in your home. To help inspire your seasonal decorating, we reached out to experts for their most creative -- yet simple -- fall home decor projects. So before the cold temperatures approach and you have to prepare your home for winter, here are 20 easy fall DIY decor projects you need to try out this season:

(Mine is the last one)

Fall DIY Decor Tablescape

1. Shop your home to create a beautiful fall tablescape

Creating fall tablescapes can be as simple as pulling from what is around you. Scour your home for different textures and linens, forage your backyard for flowers and sticks, and bring it all together with small pumpkins and a few candles. Stick to what you love and keep it simple. - Arrows and Bow 

2. DIY seasonal felt flower wreath

Start with a foam wreath and wrap it with yarn. Make a variety of felt flowers and attach a bobby pin to each. Then, adorn the wreath with the felt flowers for whatever season you want. - Vicky Barone


3. Easily create fall DIY decor with items you already own

Adding seasonal decor doesn't have to break the bank. By pulling together items you already own with warm earth tones and adding a few natural elements, you can bring the season of fall indoors. In my kitchen, I used a wooden tray to hold a vase with branches I cut from a tree in my backyard, a simple glass pumpkin, and an autumn scented candle. - Building Bluebird 

Fall DIY Decor Pumpkin Floral Arrangement

4. DIY faux pumpkin arrangement

To create this easy fall DIY decor, you’ll first need to buy a faux pumpkin and floral stems. Then cut out a small circle around the stem of the pumpkin and remove the stem to expose the styrofoam. Finally, assemble the flowers by poking the end of the stems into the foam, filling in around the pumpkin center. If styrofoam shows, you can conceal it with green moss. - The Home Envy 

DIY candlestick holder table centerpiece

5. A rustic DIY candlestick holder

Candles give off such a cozy vibe, and a special scent for all of your spaces. This rustic DIY candlestick holder has to be one of my favorite DIY decor projects to date. Taper candlesticks are fun to change out for each season to add to your table, mantle, or any vignette. - The Curated Farmhouse 

6. Illuminate your fresh DIY fall tablescape

Create a tablescape using what's fresh and in season this fall. Using a table runner (either a cream or white color), place warm decorative winter squash, pomegranate, lemons, limes, fallen leaves, and fresh acorns/pinecones-foliage strewn down the table. Illuminate your fall DIY decor display with various fall color votive candles placed throughout the fall items. - Bringing It Home 


7. The perfect DIY fall mantle

I just can't get enough fall, so much that I decided that I wanted it to be exploding out of our fireplace. Use a pallet to create this super simple and super custom mantle centerpiece, then accessorize with your favorite lanterns, faux succulents, pumpkins, leaves, and decorative ribbon. - From Scratch With Maria 

8. Create a fall centerpiece

Centerpieces that are either set on a table in your entryway or on your kitchen or dining room table are always a nice conversational piece for guests. You can either pick some tree limbs that have some autumn leaves on them to put in a vase, get a few mini-pumpkins and pears and put them in a big glass bowl, or purchase some golden gingko to serve as an accent for a couple of bottles of wine on a place setting. - Mommy's Memorandum

9. Copper-dripped pumpkins

Here is a fun and easy no-carve pumpkin decor idea. Take a foam craft pumpkin, paint it white, and drip glue and metallic spray paint on the top. It is a beautiful way to add a little glam to your fall decorations. - Practical Whimsy Designs

10. Fall DIY decor: teardrop swag for your door

Create a welcoming front porch this fall by adding a cozy teardrop swag to your front door. Start with a greenery teardrop base and secure a bow at the top, weaving ribbon throughout the base. Use focal points such as pumpkins or a sign and add picks to create fullness throughout. - Decorator’s Warehouse 


11. Make a dollar tree fall splatter screen pumpkin

Take 3 Dollar Tree splatter screens (cut the handles off of 2 of them) and cover them with the fabric of your choice. Hot glue them together in the shape of a pumpkin with the screen that has a handle on top. Wrap the handle with twine. Embellish with a flower and line the edges of the screens with mop strings. - The Maker’s Map 

12. DIY fall sparkle maple leaf decoration

Use a wooden frame base to make a fall sparkle maple leaf decoration. Draw an outline of a maple leaf and paste fall-colored gem stickers. Be creative with the shapes, shades, and arrangement of the gem stickers to get a beautiful fall sparkle maple leaf. - Decor Craft Design 


13. Metallic foil pumpkins

Have some fun and decorate your pumpkins a little differently this year with foil. Foiling a pumpkin is easier than you think. Grab any fake pumpkin (or real) and paint it with primer/paint, then add a layer of foil adhesive and allow it to dry. Then choose one of the many different metallic foils and transfer the foil to the surface. - Artistic Painting Studio 

14. Repurpose outdoor items for your festive centerpiece

As the days shorten and the weather starts to cool, entertaining makes a move indoors. Empty the terracotta pots from your patio (or any container), bring them inside to repurpose as a casual and charming candlestick collection on your dining room table. Flip them upside down, place the saucers on top, and set a wide pillar candle in the saucer. Tuck fall leaves and a few gourds or small pumpkins between the candlesticks. And just like that, you have a festive centerpiece to celebrate the season in style. - Kehoe Designs

fall diy decor mophead pumpkin

15. Mop head fall pumpkin decor

You can create this super cute fall DIY decor by using a simple mophead and styrofoam pumpkin from the dollar store. Glue the mop head in sections onto your pumpkin and embellish with a stick from the yard for the stem. Easiest project ever. - Southern Crush at Home 

16. A stenciled wooden centerpiece

To celebrate the bounty of the season and fall's display of color, adorn your fall table with a wooden plaque stenciled on each end with a beautiful cornucopia design, a symbol of abundance and nourishment. To stencil your wooden plaque, simply lay the cornucopia stencil on top of the plaque and secure with painter's tape, apply craft paint to desired areas, and remove the stencil to reveal the design. As a finishing touch, display candles and other decor atop the plaque. - The Artful Stencil

17. An easy fall DIY decor idea: a farmhouse wreath 

Create a farmhouse wreath using bleached drop cloth for the perfect fall door decor. Simply bleach (or not) drop cloth, cut into 1-1/2”x9” strips, and tie onto wire wreath form. - The Birch Cottage 


18. Easy fall DIY decor: candy corn vases

Candy Corn vases are a simple fall DIY decor idea you can make in minutes. Plus, you can reuse the vases from season to season. Fill vases with water beads in candy corn colors of clear, yellow, and orange. Then add jack-o-lantern faces or "BOO" cut from black vinyl by hand or with an electronic cutting machine like a Cricut. - Smart Fun DIY 

19. A quick fall DIY decor idea using faux leather

Fall decor is all about the warm autumn colors and textures. A quick tip would be to buy some strips of faux leather and, using brass tacks, tack on the leather strip to a white or wooden picture frame. This layered look can add a warm-colored texture to a stark white frame - Colors and Craft

20. Create a decorative scarecrow using recycled materials

Find a board and round the top edges and cut out a stem at the top center. Paint the lower part and the top orangey/brown to resemble a pumpkin and the stem green. Decorate the scarecrow with hair using yarn and then add a band to cover the hair. Paint on a face, make a nose, and attach a silk flower above the band. For the final touch to your fall DIY scarecrow, add a bow and paint the letters “FALL” down the lower front. - Eclectic Red Barn

Pumpkins, Spindle and Vintage Truck

Pumpkins, Spindle and Vintage Truck

When I went to visit my Mon and sister a few weeks ago, my sister gave me two white pumpkins to take home. I wanted to create a vignette where I could use those pumpkins. I my quest to use what I have, I gathered some items to create this vignette.

Fall Pumpkin Vignette

Fall Pumpkin Vignette

It seems when fall arrives that pumpkins come to mind. We see so many different varieties and choices for our pumpkins.  I wanted to make some pumpkins for myself and of course I had to use what I had on hand - some soft plush fabric from another project. Add something vintage and I have my fall pumpkin vignette.

Fall Scare Crow From Recycled Items

Scare Crow From Recycled Items

Last week I shared my new front porch wreaths for fall. You can read that here. In the picture was my new scare crow. With covid here, I have been trying to create projects without having to go shopping. So this scarecrow is made entirely from items around the house. I will share how you could adjust this project to things you might have instead of mine. She turned pretty cute for a scare crow.

Fall Wreaths for the Front Door

Fall Wreaths for the Front

I had lots of wreaths for my other front door, but when we moved, this house had two doors instead of just one, so that meant I could not use any of my other wreaths. So off to JoAnn fabrics I went for some fall inspiration. I have been trying to use what I have instead of buying, but I needed some wreath bases. They also had faux flowers on sale so I bought one set. 

I kept these wreaths rather simple. I didn't even add ribbon. I can always add that later or as an update next year.

Fall Centerpiece Using Fruit Cocktail Cans

As I watch others post their fall projects and talk about cooler weather, it is hard to think about fall when the weather is still so warm here in southern Florida. We may cool off to the upper eighties tomorrow. lol!
This post is about creating the vases for this "fall" centerpiece.

Fall Mantel with Glass Acorns

Fall Mantel with Glass Acorns

When we got back from our trip up north, I tried to get the house ready for fall and Halloween. I thought of many ways to decorate the mantel but I wanted it to last past Halloween. So I decided not to add any Halloween specific decor.

Fall Candle Holder from a Lamp Base

Fall Candle Holder  from a Lamp Base

A few months back, I pulled a wicker lamp out of the neighbors junk pile. The cord had been cut off but the rest of the parts where there. I keep lamp parts so I took it apart. The lamp shade was "toast" and I really didn't want it. 

The base of the lamp was wicker and in good shape, but I didn't like the color (sort of dirty blond).  Sorry, I don't have a picture of the original lamp base. I didn't think I would be using the base. I put it aside for awhile.

Then one day I found the wicker base and had an idea.  I found some brown spray paint. I got so excited that I forgot to take a before picture. While the paint was drying, I headed to A. C. Moore for a couple of items.

Fall Decor Using Easter Eggs

Fall Decor Using Easter Eggs

I actually made this fall arrangement a couple of years ago. I found them as I was going through some boxes in my garage. I thought I would share them with you in case you missed them the first time.

Fall Sunflower Wreaths

New Sunflower Wreaths

While we were in Vermont, the weather was cool and I got into the fall spirit. So when I came home, I decided to update the plain green moss wreaths that were left on my front doors. 

I thought about buying new ones, but figured I could just add flowers and they would be fine and I was right. You have to use what you have.

Decorative Stacked Pumpkins

I love those fall and Halloween stacked pumpkins but they are expensive. I was looking through several magazines and they can be as high as $200+. Yikes! No way I am paying that so I thought of a way to make one for myself.

Easter Eggs as Fall Decor?

Easter Eggs as Fall Decor?

My husband and I are recovering from Irma's destruction, I haven't had time to put my things back outside because of all of the downed trees.  Hoping to start this week. 

As we were moving things in the garage, I found these plastic eggs. I set them aside and the next day I thought about what I could do with them. Could I use them as fall decor?

These 6 eggs were the bigger ones, around four inches
in length. I decided to turn them into acorns.

Fall Update of Grey Rocking Chairs

Remember those great free rocking chairs I got from my neighbor? Well, we use them all the time and I wanted to give them a fall update. I had hoped to post this before Halloween, but that never happened. As you can see, I had a Halloween pillow on one of the rockers. It has since been removed.

I created the Autumn banner by cutting up some fabric I had - brown and tan canvas.

 I cut some rectangles and then folded them to cut some points.

Then I used letters that I had purchased from Walmart that I used in my Fall plaque.
I placed the letter on the fabric and then used a magic marker to fill in the letter.

I attached the letters to some twine with my hot glue gun. I had purchased the basket at Long and Scott Farms for $2 - lid included. 
Eclectic Red Barn: Tea and fall accessories
We have tea out here in the evenings while the dogs play and we talk about our day.

These rocking chairs are just great and we are using them all the time. Not bad for something free.
