The leaves have begun to brown and fall, and the distinct smell of pumpkin spice is in the air. From the warmth of a zesty latte in your hands to the flickering of fall-scented candles in your home, it can be easy to bring in the cheerfulness of fall wherever you are. Just a few simple changes can take your home from summertime fun to autumn comfort. Here are a few simple ways to decorate your home this fall

 

Create a cozy experience

 

When you think of fall, you think of comfort and warmth. To help bring in those fall vibes, bring in pieces of comfort throughout your home, such as a few throw blankets and pillows near the fireplace. You can also add a couple of fluffy rugs to tangle your toes in while getting lost in a good book.

 

Bring in fall plants

 

Adding plant life to your home naturally brings a little more flair to your home's décor. Select a few plants and flowers that are in season like Goldenrods, Marigolds, and Sunflowers, and spread them strategically around your home to bring in the season right. Fall mums, also known as garden Chrysanthemums, are trendy during the autumn season and would be a perfect fit around the entryway and front steps. You can also add a few real or artificial pumpkins and fall leaves to really make things stand out.

 

Light things up

Nothing screams seater weather like an array of fall-scented candles lit around the house. Select a few warm scents from your favorite candle shop like apple cinnamon, caramel apple, pumpkin spice, or a few woody, smoky aromas to warm things up a bit.

 

Swap cool tones with warm tones

 

Change out last season's comforters, pillows, rugs, and curtains with deeper shades and rich accent colors that provide a warm and cozy feel throughout your home. Don't forget to bring the flannel print!

 

Dress up the front door

 

The entrance to your home is the first thing your guests, friends, and family will see when visiting, so why not dress up your front door? You can add a few accessories to your front doors, like a monogram door hanger, a festive autumn wreath, or a garland of fall leaves. Twinkling string lights around the front porch are appealing, and don't forget a seasonal welcome mat at the entrance to top things off. You can even place one, two, or TEN pumpkins nearby to welcome guests even more! You can never have too many pumpkins.

How to Get Your Home Fall-Ready on a Budget

The fall season is well underway and what better time to revamp your home than now? Making a few small adjustments around the house can make a big difference, but it can be costly as well. No one wants to spend all of their hard-earned money on décor that will only be up for a season. Fear not! It doesn't have to be expensive to keep up with decor trends. Some of the best pieces can be found right under your nose! Here’s how to get your home fall-ready on a budget.

 

Use edible décor

 

Throw a few apples in a decorative bowl you already own and place it somewhere in your kitchen or on your coffee table.  If you’ve recently gone apple picking in the spirit of fall, you’ve probably got plenty of fresh apples to work with. They’ll double as décor and a crisp juicy snack.

 

Pumpkins go with everything! Use pumpkins to decorate your home. Instead of carving your pumpkins this season, try painting them in colors like white, grey, or a nice shade of forest green. Place a few larger pumpkins near your doorstep and spread out some smaller ones where you see fit throughout your home. You can also opt to grab a few plastic pumpkins from your local dollar store and spray paint them in white, gold, or even bronze for the perfect fall touch.

 

Take advantage of thrift store finds

 

Your local thrift store is a goldmine for dirt cheap décor. You just have to keep an open mind when searching and sorting through all of the chaos. Dress up your fireplace with a few repurposed items such as a wicker basket, teapot, or an antique broom to give it a cozy feel. 

 

Make use of blankets and throw pillows

 

The use of blankets can add a simple touch of warmth and color without the paint job. You can grab a few throws from the thrift store or local discount store or use a few you have on hand. Bring in blankets and pillows with warm tones and plaid designs to throw over your favorite chair or ottoman or even on a back porch table.

 

Fill your home with candles

 

There are tons of warm fall scented candles available at an affordable price. You can choose to light some to fill your home or place a few in rooms for decoration purposes only. Alternate between different sizes, shapes, and colors with your candles.

 

Prepare Autumn Goodies

 

This may not seem like décor, but baking anything warm with a scent of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg is sure to fill your home with all of the fall feels. Creating memories in your kitchen with loved ones is the best way to bring in the new season.

 

Add color with wallpaper

 

If you don’t want to commit to painting your walls, consider incorporating wallpaper to add color in your home. You’ll save time and have the option to peel it away when you change your mind.

 

Arrange fresh fall florals

 

Use dahlias, ranunculus, and clippings from your yard to create an arrangement that is sure to make a statement. Here’s a tip: place your flower arrangements in the fridge at night to make them last even longer.

 

Have fun with decorating your home for the fall season on a budget. The possibilities are endless!
