Budget Friendly Fall Decorating Ideas

I love switching up my decor with the change in seasons... but I don't like to spend a lot of money. I love mixing dollar store finds with inexpensive DIYs. Check out some of my favourite budget-friendly fall decorating ideas below. 

1) Tiered tray - Decorating tiered trays with dollar store finds and crafted items is a fantastic way to create a classy vignette in your home. I stained a mini rolling pin, added the word "harvest", and wrapped a scrap of fabric around it. I also added pumpkins and pine cones, and filled a dollar store bottle with orange and yellow buttons. I also crafted a book stack from scraps of wood, and strung some wooden beads onto a piece of yarn. Cute, right?

2) S'more bucket - Add a bit of whimsy to your Fall decor by filling a dollar store galvanized with S'more supplies. I added the words "Making S'more Memories" to the front of my bucket with my Cricut. It's cute and functional!

3) Artwork in dollar store frames - Framing Fall pictures and free downloads is an easy and inexpensive way to add Fall flair to your home. You can download the Fall Menu I designed (below) for free here.

4) Fall hot chocolate tray - A dollar store frame and few dollar store jars can be easily turned into an adorable Fall hot chocolate tray. Start by inserting a piece of fall-themed scrap book paper into a dollar store frame. Then, use strong glue to attach wooden beads to the bottom of the tray. Finish by adding jars filled with hot chocolate, marshmallows and fall coloured candies. It looks great, and kids will love it! 

Check out the little display I made on the table in my hallway (with the first four ideas).

5) Boho DIY yarn wreath - Even if you aren't very crafty, you can easily make this simple and chic fall wreath. Don't you just love the boho vibe? Find the full step by step tutorial (with photos) here.

6) DIY argyle fall wreath - If you can wrap yarn around a styrofoam wreath foam and cut out felt leaves, you can make this adorable and cozy fall wreath. Find more information, step by step instructions and photos here.

7) Dollar store frame monogram - It doesn't get easier than this piece of DIY fall artwork. But a dollar store frame, insert fall-themed scrapbook paper, add a wooden monogram to the front with glue, and glue a ribbon hanger to the back. That's it. Easy peasy!

You can find more detailed instructions here.

8) Grapevine fall wreath - I made this simple fall wreath many years ago, but it's still one of my favourite DIYs. It's an inexpensive grapevine wreath with handmade felt flowers glued to it. You can find out how easy it is to make the flowers, and find all the step by step instructions here.

9) No Sew Fall Pillows - Transform Summer pillows to Fall pillows in a couple of minutes with a dollar store tablecloth. This is genius!


10) FREE Fall watercolour print - This print is free to download here, and it's perfect for Fall. Pop it in a dollar store frame, and no one will ever know how little you paid.

Which of these fun fall decorating ideas is your favourite? They are all easy to make, and the supplies are really budget friendly. Give a few of them a try, and let me know how it goes.
