Anyways the reason for this post is to show you guys that making decor isn't some kind of super power! I totally wish it was, but the truth is anyone can do it! Hence DIY :)
So, I am going to tell the best secret ever...the ideas all of the bloggers around here have aren't always original...
They're just cheaper versions of stuff like this...
What in the world?? I do love it, & I'm seriously thinking about making it tomorrow just so I can show you that $24.99 is a rip off & we shouldn't have to wait till December to get "harvest" decor at a reasonable price.
This one honestly cracks me up. Pottery Barn is selling this set of fake acorns for $14 bucks (& you get about 54.)...ACORNS people! I just got some acorn decor, for FREE. It's called your yard & It's the best place to shop for fall decor like: acorns and pine cones.
So, stop looking at those magazines & emails you get and thinking, that cost too much I just wont have any decor...make it! You can do it.
My intentions for this post was not to bash department stores for their high prices, but to show you all how easy it can be to find inspiration and creativity. Its right in front of us we just have to look with a knew eye. Good luck with your decor. I'll be posting this weekend to show you some fall decor I'm working on. If you want to show me something you make because of this post don't hesitate to email me I'd love to hear from you. mrszcross (@) yahoo (dot) com
p.s. I know my Mom has been emailing people to tell them about my blog. Because of this I have been considering adding a tab to my blog for all of our local junk stores and stores to buy supplies. Basically I'll review them for you show you what you can find there and if the prices are reasonable. If any of you guys are interested in visiting the junk stores in our area. If so email me or mom and let me know. Also if you want to follow my blog, or post comments please make a google account to do so. I don't want to include unnecessary information unless you guys are reading this. Thanks!
