Throw Pillows & Fuzzy Blankets: Place fall-themed throw pillows on your sofa or chair. A comfy fall colored fuzzy blanket is decorative and functional. Pick one with fall colors, maroon, orange, or red.
Candles: Not only do candles make great decorations, but they also smell good too. The scent of apples, burning leaves, pumpkin, or pine brings the fall season indoors.
Crafts: A fall wreath, mason jar décor, or leaf garland with fairy lights are a perfect addition to your fall theme. Pinterest has great ideas for fall crafts on a budget.
Art: Buy inexpensive canvas from the dollar store and create your own art. Use reds, orange, brown, and all the other colors of fall in your artwork.
Flowers: When you are at the farmer’s market, buy a bouquet of fresh flowers to display. Or pick up artificial flowers and a basket from your local dollar store to create a fall-themed center piece. Deep orange sunflowers are a great basic fall flower to start your basket.
Bring Nature In: Collect pinecones or acorns to place in a dish for display. Even dead flowers or thistles can easily turn into a center piece display. If you want to add color to your finds, use craft paints.
Cinnamon Broom or Pinecones: During the fall season, cinnamon brooms or pinecones are available for purchase. Hanging a broom or displaying pinecones in a jar are a great fall accent. Plus, the cinnamon makes your entire home smell wonderful.
Pumpkins & Gourds: What is fall without pumpkins and gourds? Whether you buy artificial or home grown from your local farmer, pumpkins and gourds are picture-perfect accents to your home.
Dishtowels & Mugs: Fall themed dishtowels and mugs are easy to display in your kitchen. The best part is the low cost of these items.
Porch Displays: Add straw bales, cornstalks, pumpkins, or mums to your front porch. Purchase or make a scarecrow to sit on top of the straw for added fun. When decorating your porch, do not forget your windows. Artificial leaves hanging in the window are a simple concept.
