Fall decor Friday {plus lots of freebies}

man, I'm really hooked on using the days of the week in my posts (here and here

I have made a deal (with myself) to spend little to no money* on my Thanksgiving decorations.  That also includes Thanksgiving table decorations.   
*meaning, I'm using stuff I already have around the house 
(that may have been purchased some time back)

I've decided I want to keep things simple - pinecones, leaves, pumpkins etc.  
I found these great doilies a while back at Dollar Tree (a pack of 36/$1) 

I've used them to make Fall favors so they've already paid for themselves :)

I thought they would make a great banner...
so I made one using some twine from The Twinery 

Here's a glimpse of it on my mantle (along with my 'thanks' blocks)

it's cute right?

I have since moved it to the kid's bathroom to make room for another banner.  
A great freebie from Designs by Paola  It's printed and ready to go!!
I'll show you a picture of the completed mantle...once it's - well, complete :)

Here's a peek at the kid's bathroom

pine cones (free), pumpkin doily (Dollar Tree), bucket ($2.50 @ Target)

Speaking of freebies..
Here are a few that I'm digging:
Living Locurto put together this great collection of freebies 
anna and blue paperie has a gorgeous set
Craftily Ever After has a great Thanksgiving subway art printable
Hello, Good Gravy has too cute Thanksgiving gift tags

If there are other freebie printables that you love...let me know (so I can share).  

Have a great weekend.
