Hi Guys! Today I’m excited to share with you 10 simple and inexpensive Fall décor ideas that will last the season through!
Fall decorating can be a little tricky sometimes because there are two very popular and very different Holidays to decorate for. First, Halloween depicted by all things creepy and orange and black and then Thanksgiving which is a more serious and reflective Holiday.
I like to choose Fall décor items that are more reflective of the actual season (of what is going on outside). That way I can put those décor items up in early-mid September and they last all the way through right after Thanksgiving.
I do add a few Halloween items in early October and then replace those with Thanksgiving sentiments in the first week of November.
But here are the 10 inexpensive décor items that will last you the season through!
#1 Canisters or Bowls filled with apples or pears.
I bought the glass canister above at Homegoods for $9.99. Then I filled it with fake green apples I bought from a stager’s sale for next to nothing. Love the assortment of pears in the bowl below.

#2 Decorating with Leaves. There are various ways to decorate with leaves. The photos above and below portray beautiful leaf bouquets that appear to have been cut in their full Fall foliage glory!
I love the idea of mounting dried leaves to white paper and creating a gallery wall of sorts. Simply genius.
#3 Another décor item from nature that is common place to find in Fall are acorns. I love the glass vase filled with acorns. I bet kids would love assisting in hunting down the acorns for this project. A real win-win!
#4 While they are out hunting for acorns they can also do collecting pinecones. This pretty family room boasts a wooden bowl filled with pinecones which gets me in the mood for Fall.
#5 Another item to look for in your yard or in craft stores are dried flowers. Often flowers turn autumn colors when they are dried properly. Below are some pink hydrangeas that dried up like this last Fall. When I went out to cut the plant down I kept the nicest ones and now use them in a white $1.00 thrift store vase. My kind of inexpensive decor!:-)
These salmon colored dried flowers and gorgeous and have such a nice autumn flair.

Love the burlap backing in this framed monogram. it screams autumn posed with a pumpkin.
#10 Although Jack-0-lanterns and bright orange pumpkins are a hallmark of Halloween their more muted versions and gourds serve as a Fall symbol all season long.
