Frugal fall Decorating-Canning jars

Autumn Bliss....One easy way to decorate frugally is to use what you already have...and I have canning jars!
I love using canning jars for decorating! Big ones...little ones...and you wash them and use them all over again.  Here I put them in a wire holder...filled them with candy corn...MY FAVORITE VEGETABLE IS CANDY CORN! 

Next I put a smaller votive sized canning jar inside with a small tea light candle. yay...I loved this!


Here I hung it outside with my fall filled bathtub...I love planting different colored mums because they come back every year. They need to be cut way back after they bloom but then when they come back it is a wonderful burst of color!




The outdoor should be an expression of your indoors...welcoming your guests...
well most of them! Hahahaha
Blessings,
Debbie
