Super Easy Fall Decorating

If you know me, even from my blog, you've probably figured out that I'm a fan of easy and, better yet, easy and inexpensive.  That's why I love decorating my window boxes in the fall.  A bale of straw -- less than $2 -- and a few pumpkins, and I'm done.  Easy and way cheaper than buying potting soil and annuals!  This lasts until Thanksgiving.  Then I pull out the straw and use it to mulch the garden.  In December, I fill the window boxes with evergreen branches, which I leave in until February.


  1. Very clever! I like it! I need a pumpkin or two. I have this strong urge to decorate a pumpkin lately.

  2. Love your idea and the fact that you just recycle the straw:):) Looks great too:)

  3. cute idea! we just got our pumpkins this past weekend. will have to start decorating this weekend. ;)

  4. I would have never thought to do that. What a great idea! Looks cute.
