I decorated my living room for fall a few weeks ago, but I haven’t gotten around to showing it to you! Today is better late than never, no? I spent less than $30 on my décor, because I basically got down my fall decorations from the attic and used what I had. The only new things I added were my DIY Sunflower arrangement, (which I spent around $25 to put together) and I made the bats using some scrapbook paper I already had.
My fall décor is fairly simple. I don’t really decorate much for Halloween. I only have a few Halloween decorations. The rest goes up for fall and stays until Thanksgiving.
My favorite part is actually the bats, and I spent way more time cutting them out than money, which was zero. I simply googled “bat templates” and searched until I found a template that I liked. I printed out a template that had bats in three different sizes. After I cut out the templates, I traced several of them onto the black paper using a silver sharpie, and then I cut them all out while watching television.
After I started cutting them I decided to let the silver marker show, I kind of like them outlined in the silver. Then, when they were all cut out I folded them in half and used a tiny piece of tape to place them on the wall the way I wanted them. The witch on the side table is something that Mr. 5 year old loves. And he insisted that it be placed right in that spot! It lights up so he loves to look at it. You can also see here where my vintage suitcase ended up for the time being.

This is our media center, obviously! A basket full of wooden eggs, a wooden leaf that I used under a candle, I love my white ceramic pumpkin, and some family photos. I love Mr. 5 Year old with the little mini pumpkins!
Have a great weekend!Link Parties:
