Faux Mercury Glass Pumpkin Jars

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.

Dictionary Page Pumpkin

Like Jessica from A Smith of All Trades, you may prefer to skip right over the Halloween decorations and stick to fall. When Jessica wanted some inexpensive décor for the season, she grabbed a few foam pumpkins from the dollar store. With some old dictionary pages and Mod Podge, she gave them the more subdued autumn look she was after.

Grapevine Pumpkins

I felt a little giddy last night when I walked outside and felt a definite chill in the air, a sure sign that fall is upon us. Laura from Inspiration for Moms loves decorating for fall and has already added a natural touch to her pumpkins with some grapevine.
