Ready for another quick idea for fall decor on a dime? Because you could LITERALLY pick these up for a dime at a yard sale or thrift store. Liter.all.y.  And if you can’t find them for a dime, you’ll only need to spend 9 more dimes to buy them at the Dollar Store.

I cut out a ginkgo shape (sorry, I JUST CAN NOT HELP MYSELF!) and traced it onto the plate. It’s very simple, which I like. I thought a tree ring plate would look gorgeous too (it’s next on my list). Other ideas are pumpkins, swirls, leaves, constellations or fun geometric designs.

So simple. So us. 🙂
