It’s finally autumn, and with the changing of the seasons comes not only the warm delight of a pumpkin-spice latte but also a chance to try out some new seasonal home decor. If you’re looking to decorate your home on a budget, we have some excellent fall home decor hacks for you to try!
Make-Over Your Fireplace
Show your fireplace some love this season by sprucing up your mantel with fall foliage or some autumn-colored beads. You might also add some pumpkins in different shapes and sizes. Finally, don’t forget to add some firewood to your fireplace to give it a taste of the outdoors.
Chic Fall-Inspired Centerpieces For Your Dining Table
Love having flowers for your table? Try hollowing out a pumpkin and adding in a large tin can. You can use this as a vase for your flowers, making for a lovely fall centerpiece!
Find an old wooden box or crate and add some faux pumpkins and other sprigs of fall foliage and a few candles. It makes for a stylish and cozy fall centerpiece for your dining room table or even the coffee table in the living room when guests are over.
Dollar Store Foliage
Believe it or not, you can find some excellent fall decor materials at your local dollar store. You don’t have to go to a big craft store to find sprigs of fall leaves, berries, and floral picks. Instead, use them to make an autumn wreath for your door or to decorate the pumpkins on your doorstep.
Decorate Your Front Door
Your door is the first thing your guests will notice, so you want to make sure it’s decorated for the season. A fall wreath, some porch pumpkins, or some leaf garlands will help set the tone for your home when guests arrive.
Bring Out Your Copper Collection
Use copper pans and fall harvest vegetables for some stunning fall decoration ideas for your kitchen! Arrange them in the space above your cabinets for an easy fall transformation.
Preserve Your Pumkins
You can preserve your pumpkins in a bath of bleach and water. This will make them last longer since it inhibits bacterial growth so that you can display your real pumpkins for longer throughout the season.
Another hack for more miniature pumpkins is to preserve them in vaseline. Finally, avoid carving your pumpkins too early in the season, and opt for paint and glued decorations instead.
Create A Snack Bar Station
Speaking of your fireplace, it’s a great place to make s’mores! Set up a tray with marshmallows, mini wrapped chocolate bars, and graham crackers in mason jars with a few sets of sticks for a sweet snack station. No fireplace, no problem: you can make these on the stove, too.
Use Cozy Blankets in New Ways
We love using comfy blankets when the cool chill of fall rolls in, but did you know you can also use blankets for your decor? Adding them to your s’mores station or using them as a base for your pumpkin display adds a comforting layer to your decor.
