Frugal Friday: Fall Edition - Simple Fall Decorating

I just love decorating for the fall season. And it can be done very inexpensively using what you have and collecting natural things from the outdoors (as described on this site)...
One of my favorites is the grapevine wreath that Mom made me a few years ago. We had a grapevine in our yard up until they moved a couple years ago, so there was no need to even go to a craft store for that...Adding some leaves and such...and a couple additional items from the craft store...and finally a bit of ribbon...
My indian corn is another favorite - simple, festive,
and can be used year-to-year...
This post called "All from one little pumpkin" is creative and inspiring...
...This is another interesting decorating idea from A Soft Place to Land (again, using mostly what you already have)
...I think that candles add a nice warm glow for this time of year...
Bittersweet, if you can find it, is beautiful to add around a doorframe, in a vase or on a wreath.
An idea that I got from our Taste of and dry leaves and place them in a frame.
(This link shows basically same idea with a little extra added to it.)
Finally, if you have a throw or pillows in the fall hues, you could add them as well, to "warm" up the room and make it cozy.

Such a nice post.
I made those pumpkin muffins. They were very good.
