Okay, so to continue with the theme of Christmas decorations, I have another super frugal and fun decoration. At my house we have tons and tons of acorns!! They cover the driveway, and it doesn't matter how much you blow them off of they driveway by the end of the day it is covered again.
I just knew there had to be something I could do with them. So, I bought two of these clear glass containers from the Dollar Tree, for $1.00 each. I then collected enough acorns to fill the bottom half. Next I took some branches off of a small cedar tree in our yard, and stuck them down in the acorns. To finish it off I added some pretty ribbon that I got for super cheap at the after Christmas sale last year.
So, this is what is on the mantle in our Living Room. I like it, it is simple, but cozy.
