Embrace nature's bounty! Take a walk in a park or local trail and gather colorful leaves, pinecones, and acorns. Arrange them in a rustic wooden bowl or weave them into a simple garland for a touch of earthy elegance.

Pumpkins aplenty! Look for gourds, both big and small, at local farms or farmers markets. A cluster of colorful pumpkins displayed on your porch or mantle adds a festive touch without breaking the bank.

Throw Pillow Makeover: Breathe new life into old throw pillows by creating autumn-themed covers. Think burnt orange, mustard yellow, or deep red fabrics. You can find inexpensive throw pillow covers at dollar stores or thrift shops and easily sew new covers yourself, or decorate existing ones with fabric paint or stencils.

Pinecone Prettiness: Collect pinecones on your nature walks and give them a festive makeover with a coat of metallic spray paint. Silver, gold, or copper add a touch of glam to your pinecones, perfect for a centerpiece or scattered around a bowl filled with colorful leaves.

Scentational Touches:

Fall Fragrances: Evocative scents like cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, and apple cider are hallmarks of fall. Fill your home with these inviting aromas using simmer pots filled with water, spices, and citrus peels. Opt for natural soy wax candles in these autumnal scents for an extra touch of ambiance.
Light and Luminary:

Warm Candlelight: As the days grow shorter, fill your home with the warm glow of candlelight. Cluster pillar candles or tea lights on trays or mantels. String fairy lights around a fall wreath or drape them across a bookshelf for a touch of magic.
Dollar Store Delights:

Don't underestimate the power of the Dollar Store! You can find a surprising amount of fall décor options, from small pumpkins and decorative gourds to cinnamon sticks and colorful leaves. Use these inexpensive items to create centerpieces, shelf arrangements, or even a festive fall tablescape.

Embrace the Thrifted Find:

Thrift stores are treasure troves for fall decorating! Look for vintage throws in warm autumnal colors, rustic picture frames to display fall-themed artwork (like our free printable below), or even decorative plates and bowls to create a harvest bounty centerpiece.
