MHCT&M: Creating Fall Table Scapes

Hello and Happy Friday! 
Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips. Kara from Mine for the Making here to share tips for creating fall tablescapes! 

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I thought it would be fun to chat about how to create the perfect table scape without spending too much money or too much time. 
If you know me, then you know I'm a busy lady and all about saving a buck, but not sacrificing on the pretty stuff of course.

1. Shop your house. 

Check out the decor in other rooms of your house and see if you can find some things that go nicely on your tablescape. 
Examples of this are candles, sconces, a throw used as a runner or tablecloth, etc. Most times you will find exactly what you need around your own home.

2. Bring nature inside. 

Using branches, twigs, pinecones, apples, acorns, wood, and pumpkins in your tablescape really brings fall into your home. Most times it will cost you nothing at all if you go out into your backyard or collect things while walking your neighborhood or going on a hike.

3. Use free printables. 

There are so many awesome bloggers who have created free prints for your personal use. Anything from place cards, tags, banners, napkin rings, food labels, and menus.
 Be sure to leave a comment on their blog to let them know you loved using their prints!

4. Make your own decor. Get crafty! 

Make napkin rings, paint pumpkins, build a planter box for the center of the table, make sconces out of dollar store glass vases and candle holders... let your creativity go wild! Often times you can buy supplies at your local dollar store and make something for your table in an hour or less. 
It doesn't have to be expensive or take a ton of time if you don't want it to.
