Modern Fall Tablescape on a Budget

A wonderful blend of warm and cool colors coming together to usher in my favorite time of the year, FALL!  So celebrate the seasons splendor by bringing in nature and adding dashes of color into your home. The combinations we loved and used for our Fall Tablescape are:  1, 2, 3, 7 and 12.  I am also loving how the colors 6 ,7 and 11 are trending this Fall.

Our Fall Tablescape cost me $7.  I found this fabric last summer at Joanns paid $4, the vases are recycled, the peacock feathers cost me $3 and the eucalyptus buds free.  I already owned the spray paint and twine.

It all started with the vases.

I had been saving some soda bottles and decided it was time to put them to good use. I busted out the spray paint and twine and gave those babies a makeover! Aren’t they absolutely lovely?

Vases from Soda Bottles

  • You will need to cover your area with newspaper.
  • Place bottles on top and spray away.
  • Once they are dry add your twine at the top.

I will add that if it’s windy don’t paint with clothing, you don’t mind getting speckled. I painted wearing black on a windy afternoon. Yes, I am cool like that and now I own a black polka dot shirt.

Here’s our Saturday morning breakfast table. My hubby made some homemade granola that’s so delicious. I usually don’t like store bought granola but homemade is definitely a different story.

I filled my vases with beautiful peacock feathers.

Here’s are a couple of other diy Fall decor on a a budget:

Decorative Nature Balls I used eucalyptus buds and covered a styrofoam ball with them and filled the gaps with spanish moss. Seriously, these balls cost $8 each if bought at the store.  Have you ever had that moment when you see something at the store and you want it but after thinking about you realize I can so make these babies? I am so glad I didn’t splurge and bought them because they took like 10 min. each to make.

Pumpkins from Toilet Tissue Rolls – I covered toilet tissue with twine and fabric! Warning, the twine took more time then I envisioned. So make sure you start this when you have time to spare but the fabric covered pumpkin took like 5 minutes. This cuteness is going on our mantle!  The monogram burlap frame is another simple with a touch of vintage craft. I shared here how to make it.
