Fall's in a basket

Wanna make a super easy fall arrangement that doesn’t seem out of place with beachy décor?

Step one: Find a super cool basket. It you can’t find one in a great blue/green, scour thrift stores for a basket with a great shape and take some spray paint to it.

Step two: stuff the basket with crumpled newspaper and top with scraps of linen or drop cloth fabric.

Step three: top with lovely heirloom pumpkins and gourds. I found mine at the flea market, but I’ve also seen them at Trader Joe’s.

Step four: fill in any empty spots with faux greenery and leaves from the dollar store.

Easy Peasy!

What's your favorite quick and simple decorating trick?

Linking to the awesome at Gina's!

Pretty and just right for fall. I really need to get on the decorating ball. My quick and simple decorating tip? Changing out candles throughout the house and easy displays of flowers in little vases here and there.
