Day #1: Dollar Store Leaf Branch

This is day #1 of the “31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor” series.

This is a link-up with The Nester, and basically you blog about something for 31 days.

I’ve decided on 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor, because there are so many little things I decorate, that I never share. Usually they are free or from the Dollar Store, and I figured you might like some of them.

So……here’s Day #1:

The Dollar Store Leaf Branch.

This branch from the backyard, and a package of dollar store leaves is an easy, and simple way to add some “fall” to your home.

This would look great on:

* Shelves

* The top of a dresser.

* If you used a few sticks or branches in a vase with these leaves.

* On a wall (especially if you had a big branch!)

  This best thing about this branch is that it is subtle. It doesn’t scream “Fall Decor”.

How I made this:

I always have this hanging….um, what are those things called? A Reed-weaved “circle thingy” hanging on my staircase wall.

I found a branch in our yard, and the leaves from the Dollar Store are made with wire, so I simply wrapped a few around different sides of the branches.

You can see it through our kitchen or as you’re going down our stairway.

(That verse is actually on our stairway. It’s not from picture editing.)

So, there’s a simple, easy and “thrifty” way to bring a little fall into your home.


  1. Katie that single branch makes a great and colorful statement! Your reed weave circle thingy makes the perfect background for it!

  2. So simple and a easy way to add the season indoors. I love your reed circle thingy 🙂 care to share where you found it?

  3. 1st Thessalonians 5:16 is one of my favorite verses…but I have many…

    • Mine too. Emily at Jones Design Co had it on her office wall and I thought, “I need that verse to smack me in the face everyday.”, so I put it on my stairs.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Great idea and thanks for sharing this idea. Im looking forward to 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor

  5. That turned out great! I’m excited to see the other days. 🙂 I would love it if you stopped by and linked this up to my weekly link party. Hope to see you there!

  6. Very cute! The craft I am sharing also uses dollar store silk leaves!
