Melissa from 320 Sycamore shares a tutorial for a beautiful fall wreath that deviates a little from the typical assortment of brightly colored leaves. Melissa glued moss to a wreath form she’d salvaged from her neighbor’s garbage the previous year and then added lots of little pumpkins.

While “window shopping” for fall and Halloween decorating inspiration, Amy from Home Sweet Thrifty Home found some pretty mercury glass pumpkins on Pottery Barn’s website. This thrifty gal couldn’t justify spending $30 on just one pumpkin, especially when she could make two for about $20. All it took was some Krylon Looking Glass spray paint and a mixture of vinegar and water for Amy to transform the glass Wal-mart pumpkins. Best of all, Amy likes her even better since they double as décor and storage jars.
