The beautiful fall months provide a bounty of fun and exciting decorating ideas that don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. From crunchy leaves, warm colours, plenty of pumpkins and beautiful flowers, autumn is one of the best times to freshen up your home’s indoor décor.
And, updating your indoor space for the fall months, doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, there are several frugal indoor fall decorating ideas you can use to add autumn charm, colour and warmth to your space.
Check your local supermarket or garden center for pumpkins, gourds or even the small pie pumpkins. Using a knife, carefully remove the top and carve out at least 1 inch deep of the inside. Then, fill with a little bit of water and add seasonal flowers like chrysanthemums for a beautiful table display.
Dried Apple Garlands
Slice apple into thin strips and dry on low in your oven for an hour or two. String the slices on some coloured ribbon and hang from your doorway, mantel or anywhere else in your home that needs a little perking up. You can even sprinkle the apples with cinnamon before drying to make them more fragrant. This is a beautiful rustic addition to your fall décor.
Your local dollar store is a fantastic place to purchase a variety of candles in different sizes and fall colours and assemble them on an autumn coloured charger plate. This makes a beautiful centerpiece for your table or on your mantel.
Look for throw pillows, towels, runner and rugs in warm fall colours, changing them out with your other pieces. These items can be purchased at local retailers, dollar stores or thrift stores inexpensively and can make a huge difference to your space.
PRO TIP: Collect a bunch of seasonal pillow covers that fit your throw pillows. They take up less storage space. You can also look for fabric remnants, tea towels, and other such items that can easily be stitched together to make your own.
Using large bowls and baskets you already have on hand, you can arrange natural items beautifully. Things like gourds, apples, mums, acorns, pinecones, or anything else nature can provide for free will create a stunning fall display. Place them around your house in any spot that needs some autumn colour.
When it comes to decorating your home over the autumn months, there are so many ways do it without breaking the bank. Choose warm colours and beautiful natural accents. Fall decor is a great way to make your home feel cozier.
