7 Thrifty fall decor ideas. Simple and inexpensive inspiration to use in your own home.
At times we can all hit a creative wall when it comes to decorating our homes. You know how it is – budget, colors, layout, textures and so much more. Add the element of seasonal decor on top of this and it can be overwhelming. You don’t need to go over-the-top and put pumpkins and cornhusks in every room of the house. Here’s a list of 7 thrifty fall decor ideas.
Welcome to this month’s Thrift Style Team. Be sure to read through to the bottom of this post to see what the other members have created!
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post – 25 Fall Wreaths Under $100 – we know that it is early to be sharing fall posts. This might be your attitude. LOL
Sharing early is for your benefit. This way you can make fall decor ahead of time – you’ll be ready to go quicker than you can say “Pumpkin Spice Latte”! Let’s get started!
Simple and Inexpensive fall Ideas:
- Free printables
- Items found in nature
- Handmade pumpkins
- Thrifted items
- Make a wreath
- Clean out the garage or attic – you might be surprised at what you find
Many websites offer free printables. When they are printed on heavy stock paper they look quite beautiful. We found the printable used for our mantel HERE. Another great place to view many fall printables can be found HERE.
Nature is Free
I love incorporating natural elements in my home throughout the year. When out walking my neighborhood I collect sticks, twigs, pinecones and greenery. These treasures are free of cost and look great displayed in different ways in my home.
Sticks and pinecones look perfect styled in this blue wooden bucket next to my Fall Mantel.
You can even bleach pinecones for a different look. You can read how to do that HERE.
Tall curly twigs displayed in a blue and white jardiniere in the dining room looks dramatic and fill space.
All of these herbs and tree limbs were clipped from my own yard. They look beautiful as a dining table centerpiece arranged inside of a vintage soup tureen.
Purchasing pumpkins and gourds can be quite costly. You can paint your own like we did HERE.
Or make these beautiful chinoiserie pumpkins which have been one of our most popular posts ever!
The book page indigo pumpkins are so easy to make and pretty too! You can paint them any color that you like.
Fragrance of Fall
DIY Scented pinecones instantly fill the house with the fragrance of fall.
A simmer pot is another great way to make your home fragrant for fall. HERE is our recipe.
When we purchased these copper mugs at an antique shop, we instantly knew that we were going to make spice candles in them. They fill the house with the scent of cinnamon!
This thrifted silver tray was a great find. It was only a couple of dollars and it has a pumpkin rim all the way around the tray. Perfect for serving homemade pumpkin bread!
You can also make a silver tray chalkboard!
Make a Wreath
Welcome Fall and friends to your front door with a cute wreath. We crafted this “Sweater Weather” wreath as our greeting.
Or this super-easy floral fall wreath. You can easily make this wreath in just a few minutes!
Clean out the garage or attic
When cleaning your garage or attic,you might just be surprised at what you find. You may also spark your creative juices.. Last years cozy and inviting fall porch decor was one of my all-time favorites. The vintage door had previously served as Jenn’s guest bedroom headboard. A galvanized watering can was perfect for seasonal clippings. Sadly Hurricane Michael was headed to town and the entire porch had to be dismantled and stored away. The fall porch only looked like this for one day.
Hopefully you find these simple and inexpensive fall ideas helpful and inspiring. We would love to hear your ideas for fall decor!
