The fall season is another time to decorate your space with rich colors and scents. For many, this also means it’s a period to spend so much money on enhancing interiors. What if we told you it doesn’t have to be? You can decorate your home without spending much (or anything at all!) These five hacks will help you spruce things up at a low cost.
Beginning from the inside
Decorating doesn’t always mean buying new things. You can pair the most random items in your bedroom or storage room to create a beautiful fireplace or dining table decoration without spending a dime.
You could place scented candles in ribbed mason jars to decorate your dining table and create ambiance. You could also bring out those fall-themed pillowcases and redecorate throw pillows in your living room. Another hack is wrapping plaid scarves around your dining chairs.
The treasures you can find outside
While you can get many decorating ideas from the items sitting idle in your house, gems can be found outside your house, too.
You could make a fall-themed picture frame with four sticks from your garden and glue. You could also attach corn stalks to your mailbox or porch columns with a fall-colored ribbon.
Incorporating the veggies of the season
Of course, you already know we’re referring to pumpkins as the veggies of the season. Decorating your space with pumpkins screams ‘fall’. It’s common to paint them and arrange them on your stairs. What else can you do with pumpkins?
You could also use pumpkins as a vase for flowers. All you have to do is clean out taller pumpkins and place your flower stems in them. If you only have shorter pumpkins, you just have to cut the flower stems a bit shorter.
Finding the gold in the mire
When it comes to finding items at ridiculously low prices, the thrift store is one of the options that come to mind. Aside from significantly cutting costs, going to the thrift store for decor supplies allows you to get unique items.
You could get a woven decorative tray, fall decoration sign, fall-themed serving platter, vintage jug vase, and set of fall-themed tea towels, just to mention a few. The key to scoring cheap decor items at the local thrift store is considering efficiency.
Making your home a fall garden
When you think of the fall season, what comes to mind? We’re sure of one: the colorful leaves. You could bring the ambiance and freshness of your fall garden into your home by spreading fall leaves on your fireplace mantle. Worried about drying out?
By rubbing some moisturizer onto the front and back of each leaf, you can keep them fresh for longer. You could tie leaves to candles or press them into softened wax to give your space a fall-season look(and feel).
