Easy Scrapbook Paper Autumn Tree & Vase #falldecor #frugaldecor #fall #autumn #pinecones

This fall tablescape is perfect for those who want to decorate on a budget, or who aren’t crafty!  This is inexpensive and EASY!!

Materials needed:

Vase from Dollar Tree

Pine cones & Acorns

120 Artificial Fall Maple Leaves in a Mixture of Autumn Colors – I ordered 120 of them because I was doing this project with my MOPS group.  You could use real pressed fall leaves, or get something more like these Autumn Fall Leaf Decor Pack – Fall Colors if you don’t need so many.

Lehigh Group 530X Jute Twine Heavy Duty twine 190′

Touch of Nature 24-Piece Mini Indian Feathers for Crafting, 3-Inch, Earth Mix

Glue gun


This is really easy – you just fill the vase with small pinecones & acorns.  I hot glued on 3 leaves around  the vase.  I then tied some jute twine around the center, and added some feathers and acorn in the center.

Autumn Paper Tree

Materials needed:

Picture frame (look in a thrift shop for some very inexpensive and unique frames!)

8″ x 11″ card stock

Various scrapbook paper with a fall theme

Scrapbook Circle Punch

brown felt

white chalk

glue sticks and liquid glue


We used a stencil of a tree trunk similar to the one below.  Draw and cut it on card stock.  Then outline it in with white chalk on the brown felt.  Then cut your tree trunk out of the brown felt.  Glue that on to a whole sheet of 8″ x 11″ card stock.  Add “leaves” to your tree – use various size circle punches and a variety of scrapbook paper to get the tree look you want.
