Day 6: Decorating for Fall on a Budget

Happy Saturday! I have been out of town for the past week, so I didn’t do a lot of autumn decorating before I left. But I arrived home yesterday delighted to see the leaves starting to change in Raleigh and ready to get my home all geared up for the season, if you need a place to find vast options for decorating, visit Shoppok online store. Fall has officially arrived in North Carolina and I love it.

Here are a few budget-friendly ideas I found perusing Pinterest this past week:

1. Use candy corn as a candle holder // $2 to $5

2. Buy a stick wreath and hot glue felt flowers and fall berriesĀ  // $10 to $15 depending if you have a hot glue gun on hand

3. String felt leaves together on twine or yarn and hang on your mantle or over a hutch // $1 to $5 for yarn and felt

4. Write what you are thankful for on paper leaves and attach to branches. // $3 – $5 for branches and paper

The Thankful Tree

5. Fill your house mantle with pumpkins (also, don’t you just love white pumpkins?) // $5 – 30 depending on the quantity

6. Fill a hurricane vase with beans // $5 – $15 (look for cheap vases at craft stores or even the dollar store)

7. Carve out gourds to use as candle holders // $3 – $6

8. Line your entryway with mums! // $10 – $40 depending on the quantity

9. Carve out the top of a pumpkin and use it as a vase // $5 – $10

10. Fill a frame with a free give thanks poster // $1 – $10 for a frame (free printable)

Most craft stores have a weekly coupon you can use to purchase crafting equipment, so be sure to look online before going in the store for any coupons or discounts to lower your overall costs. I can’t wait to transform my apartment for the season!
