Happy Fall Ya'll

I was feeling a little ambitious today and
thought I would tackle a little porch project!
I am trying to keep my projects under
budget so this was done pretty cheap!
So here it goes...

I started off with 3 pumpkins of descending sizes, spray painted cream, and a pot that I already had and spray painted black.

I broke off the stems of the bottom and middle pumpkin...

Drilled a 1/2" hole the top of the bottom pumpkin, the bottom and top of the middle pumpkin,
and the bottom of the top pumpkin

Set the pumpkin's in the pot.  Threaded the dowel through the pumpkin's...

Put some leaves in between them...
And the whole project cost:
-pumkins $5
    -Spray paint $4
-Pot free
-Leaves free

I got these cute mums for $1.22 a piece.
Total $3.66

This chair from kitchen broke a few days ago and was on the trailer to go to the dump. 
I saw it and thought that it would be cute on my porch with something on it. 
 I already had this pot of geraniums my mom got me for Mother's Day. 
I thought it looked cute!

My mom gave me this wreath a couple of years ago
and I had the burlap in my craft room.

Total Cost:  $12.66
Not too bad!


  1. Love the Pumpkin topiary!! Might have to copy you on that one! Glad to see you posting again! :)

  2. Looks so cute! I have a chair that looks just like yours (not painted...yet). I've been wondering if I should throw it away or keep it for something. Great idea!! :)
