Fall Decor – Acorns and Spiders

Earlier in October I happened upon Thrifty Decor Chick’s They’re Baaaack! post and loved what she did to her staircase.  So I pinned it!  And then I headed to Meijer to get some wooden acorns (50% off!) and then to Michael’s to see what Martha Stewart items were left.  No mice cut-outs, but spiders.  And have I told you that Stella is obsessed with spiders?  Loves them.  So I used Thrifty Decor Chick’s inspiration to add a few new items to our decor this fall.  I love Pinterest and love blogs and love the internet in general for sharing ideas and being creative.

One night after bedtime I adhered the 10 spiders around the first floor.  The girls loved finding them the next morning and giggled everytime they noticed them thereafter.  (My mom thought they were a bit creepy…and they were!)

Um, if you need fake candles, hit the Dollar Store or Big Lots.  MUCH cheaper than a Target, Meijer, Michael’s.  MUCH cheaper.  You get like 10 for the price of 2 elsewhere. 

Pictures, not great.  Lighting just not working with me.

I think I’m going to swap out the gourds and acorns for shiny ornaments and jingle bells once Thanksgiving comes and goes.

Pinterest inspiration complete!  YAY!

  1. I have been looking for acorns! Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Target are sold out!!! Were there many at Meijer’s? I need them for vase fillers, too.

    I also use ornaments for vase fillers during Christmas.

  2. I would seriously not enter your house with those spiders! ha ha! In fact, when I saw the title I almost didn’t scroll down!

    Have Stella come out to our horse barn – spiders galore! -Kim

  3. How many times did you see one of those spiders and think it was real?? Great idea! And the vase full of squash? I’m totally stealing that. =>
