As the seasons change, so does the decor within many homes around the world. However, in this time of financial uncertainty for many families, spending hundreds of dollars on new home decor for fall isn’t very realistic. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can have your home reflect the coziness and warmth of fall without having to spend too much money on accents. To show you how, here are three inexpensive ways you can decorate your home for fall.
Bring The Outdoors Inside
Autumn is all about how the colors are changing outside and a new crispness in the air. When this happens, one of the most beautiful things to see is the leaves changing colors and falling off the trees. This natural phenomenon can make amazing and inexpensive decor inside your home. So when you want to head outside and use these free leaves for decor, TheBudgetDecorator.com recommends taking a few measures to ensure the leaves will retain their color and avoid curling as they dry. To do this, moisturize the leaves before allowing them to dry. You can also use Mod Podge to preserve the leaves as well.
Add Color With Acorns
While the most traditional colors associated with fall are reds, oranges, yellows, and browns, if those colors don’t really jive with the permanent decor in your home, you can always substitute out some of the traditional fall colors on your traditional fall items. One ways to do this, according to Country Living, is to take things like acorns and paint them with acrylic paints. Use any colors you want that will fit with your rooms, and then fill a glass jar or vase with these newly painted items. This inexpensive decoration will bring in the air of autumn without throwing off the rest of your home.
Switch Up Your Exterior Accents
Changing and replacing a lot of your decor items for each month or season can get very expensive. However, by choosing just a few select items, you can show your festive feelings without blowing your budget. According to Kirsten Krason, a contributor to Today.com, some of the best outdoor decor to switch for fall are your welcome mat and any pillows on your outdoor furniture. By replacing these items with ones that embrace the colors of fall, you can get a whole different feeling to your exterior accents for just a few dollars. And the more years you reuse these items, the smarter this financial decision will be.
If you want to show your love for autumn but don’t want to buy expensive fall decor, use the tips mentioned above to help you find inexpensive ways to embrace the new season at home.
