Over the last couple weeks, I've shared a few projects for fall, and I wanted to round up a couple other ways I've added some fall touches to our home, without breaking the bank.
1. Place Mums by Your Front Door
These flowers are a fall staple, and aren't very expensive either. On their own, they add the feeling of fall to the front of your home.
One way I save money on mums is by buying small individual ones when they are on sale, instead of a single big pot. These orange mums for instance, are actually 6 smaller individual plants for $0.98/each. A single plant this size would have been around $12.
2. Add Fall Floral Pieces to an Existing Vase
You can pick up pieces like this from a craft store like Hobby Lobby. These three were less than $13, during a 40% off sale (which happens most of the time). They add amazing texture to my existing decor on the console table, and I feel like they were missing the whole time. I plan to switch them out for different seasons.
Burlap is a staple in fall decor and I picked up this runner for only $5 with a 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon (available on their mobile site, pretty much all the time). Along with a centerpiece I've had for years, our dining room feels like fall.
This runner goes to show that sometimes it is cheaper to buy than to DIY. Plus, sewing burlap can be kind of a pain, so that's another benefit! You can place a runner on a dining room/kitchen table or even a console table/dresser with other decorations.
4. Change Pillow Covers
Another great way to bring fall touches into your home is by switching out 1, 2, or maybe all of the pillow covers on your sofa and/or chairs to add warmer tones/textures to the space. I was inspired by these pillows at Crate & Barrel, and picked up a yard of flannel fabric at Joann for less than $5 with a 40% off coupon (available on their mobile app most of the time).
I followed the same tutorial for these that I used for the non-plaid covers pictured here. You don't even have to have a plain pillow form to do this. You could add a pillow cover over an existing throw pillow you already own, and remove it after the season has ended.
Even if you just implement one or two, or all of these updates, you will instantly add some fall to your home!
