Happy Fall Y'all
I had such a fun time with this hay bale. I've never really decorated my porch before (because it's tiny) but have always wanted to and I think it turned out pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.
Here's a list of what I used:
1 large hay bale - from Michael's regularly $19.99 clearenced for $4.99 STEAL
1 Scarecrow on a dowel - from Michael's
2 large (and I mean like 3 feet high, found in the regular floral not the holiday) leaf picks - from Michael's
2 small fall leaf picks - from Michael's
2 small fall picks - from Michael's
3 Baby pumpkins - from Target
1 Ribbon bow I made from ribbon I buy at Costco
Here is the assembly process in color
I started by unwrapping the plastic from the hay bale and cutting the dowel on the scarecrow to the right length.
Next, I trimmed and arranged the two large leaf picks so they covered most of the hay bale. Next came the smaller leaf picks and I just stuck them in where they were needed and fluffed them.
Here are the cute small picks I used and I also just kind of stuck them in and fluffed them.
Next I tied a large bow around the hay bale and added three mini pumpkins in the corner.
This whole project was less than $20.00 and took me about 45 minutes start to finish.
I love how it turned out and will definitely make one again next year.
What homemade decorations have you made for Fall this year?
