Remember what these music sheet planters started out as?

See how I made theseΒ planters out of $1 plastic pumpkins.

  1. Target will be sold out of those $2.50 pumpkins before I get there today cause this is gonna cause a run on the store! Classy, cute, simple, quick, and inexpensive … a perfect combo for a holiday / short term decoration. Pinning (which doesn’t help my cause to prevent the pumpkins selling out)

  2. Wow, your door is gorgeous!! Love that warm wood. I’m not much of a Fall decorator myself. I wish I could find something Fall-ish I like that isn’t orange!

    1. You could do a monochromatic of white or any other color that tickles your fancy. Just paint all of your decor a color that you love! Gray, green, black or yellow and then add some fake leaves or garland…just run with it, it’s yours!!!! And BTW Kelly, your porch is inviting and cozy cute!!!!?

  3. I love your porch Kelly… every season. It’s such a treat all done up, no matter the holiday. It’s so enjoyable to get to see!! The pumpkins and mums are perfect πŸ™‚

  4. your porch looks AWESOME Kelly!!!! WOW…curb appeal for sure! let me know if making a door decoration out of a rake actually stops the leaves from falling!!!! once again — your rocked your look!!!! i’ll be back to snatch this post up for one of my other decorating with a little help from my friends…you were in the first one too : ) of course! hugs…

  5. Honest to goodness, Kelly, you come up with the best ideas! How do you do that? Especially love your rake on the door!

  6. love that. it’s all so comfortable looking, with the pinecones looking au natural all lounging out there by the lantern.

  7. Great job! Love the musical pumpkin/planters! Your topiary pumpkins look great- I like the idea of stacking them on the urns. The rake is adorable! Your presentation on the porch is wonderful! What a great look!

  8. Such a lovely entryway you’ve created for fall, Kelly! The pumpkin stack in that gorgeous urn is so pretty! And the rake wreath–I totally love that and will have to be on the lookout for a cool old rakehead to try that out!
