Decor Finds on a Ten Dollar Budget

Welcome to Ten on the 10th!
Today we are all sharing home decor.

I love to include natural elements in decorating. Here are a few for around ten dollars.

My first find is a succulent dish garden for $6.48.  Yes, the plants are real!

Where did I find this little treasure?

It was in the gardening department at Lowe's, outside near the cash registers.
The rocks are glued in, so no mess either.
This little cutie is perfect to top a stack of books on a table.

Next up....
This wood board from IKEA is intended to cut/serve food. It's priced at $7.99.
What a great base for candles or succulents.
Or both.

My third idea will give any bathroom a spa feeling.

The wooden box was $5.99 at IKEA.

Just drop in this fern from Lowe's.

And you get this.

(I know... together they were 97 cents over ten dollars.  Oops.)

Here's a cute centerpiece for the bistro table in my sun room that would also work for party table decorations.

The Kalanchoe plant was $4.99 at IKEA.
The pot and dish were under $4 together at Lowe's

And my last beautiful bargain was this tiny orchid in a white pot.
I bought it for $9.99 at Lowe's and then saw one for a little less at IKEA.
It's sitting on a stack of silver coasters on top of books just as happy as a little flower can be.

I hope you found some easy and affordable inspiration here today.

Please visit the rest of the Ten on the 10th stops to see many more!
