Day #4: Sagebrush Basket

 Hey everyone,

Can you believe tomorrow’s Friday? TGIF!

We’re now on day #4 of the 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor series.

Today’s topic:

Sagebrush Baskets

 

 I usually keep a green plant in this corner, but my green plant just wasn’t saying “fall” to me, so I switched it out for an old basket filled with sagebrush.

I know not everyone lives next to sage brush, but if you live next to any grasses or brush that would dry nicely, it might also make a nice, (and free) fall addition.

You don’t have to have a basket.  A vase, urn, or pot would also work.

I also used a pile of books to bring the basket to an ideal height for this area.

I don’t live here exactly, but close, and this is what the sagebrush looks like in the fall where I live.

Sagebrush Dessert, OR. 

It’s colorful, dries nicely and is FREE, so what’s to loose? (unless you have allergies)

The color does fade after about two weeks, but still….totally worth it!

I filled the playhouse flower boxes with these today…..but I’ll share that next week.
