Fall will be here before you know it and it's time to start thinking about how you're going to decorate your home. While you could go out and spend a fortune on fancy accessories, you don't have to. Whether you make a wreath for your front door or decorate with mums, there are inexpensive ways to decorate this fall.
Make a Wreath to Hang on Your Front Door
At the Dollar Tree, you can find everything you need to create a beautiful wreath for your front door. You can find silk flowers that can be cut down for the wreath, bags of fall leaves, fall leaf garland, and even ribbon.
For a fraction of what you would pay for a store bought wreath, you can create something that has the exact colors and look that you want for your home.
Use Uncarved Pumpkins and Squash
Pumpkins and squash will last a long time if you don't carve them. You can set these on your front steps or by your door or create a large display in your front yard. You can decorate with pumpkins and squash set on hay bales.
If you want, you can cut holes in the hay bales for mums. Mums are beautiful, but also work to keep beetles away from your home.
Place Mums Around the Outside of Your Home
Mums are the ultimate fall flower. You can find so many pretty colors, but orange and yellow are best for fall. Mums will also come back year after year once planted. The key is to deadhead the plants at the end of the season.
Find Decorations in Nature
Just take a walk, and you'll likely find lots of things during the fall that you can use to decorate your house for free. You can use pine cones, acorns, branches with fall leaves in a vase, a group of branches, and more.
Decorate Your Dining Table with Inexpensive Dishes
Another great tip is to use inexpensive ceramic dishes found at the Dollar Tree to decorate your table. During the fall, you can find bowls, plates, and mugs in burnt orange and brown. These are so pretty when used to decorate a dining table.
You can mix and match the colors and create a beautiful centerpiece with a large bowl filled with silk leaves in fall colors and a large orange or brown candle. For less than $20, you can create a gorgeous tablescape.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to decorate your home this fall. There are so many inexpensive tricks you can use to make your home look gorgeous on a budget. Whether you visit the Dollar Tree for ceramic pieces or use pumpkins and mums, you'll love these inexpensive ways to decorate this fall.
