Frugal and Easy Fall DIY Decorating

Fall has arrived. Well, kind of.  The mornings feel like fall here, but by the afternoon it is summer again!  I waited, until two weeks into September, to start decorating for fall. I just couldn’t help it!  As we move into October, I will for sure be adding more decor, namely to the front porch.  However, for now the wreath is on the door, and I resurrected some past fall decorations and added a few others to our living space.  As I was doing so, I realized how easy, and frugal most of these projects are, so I thought I would share them with you today!


I started with the fireplace area.  We don’t have a lot of mantel space, since our TV hangs above it.  So that limits the height I can add to the top of the mantel. That being said, I took a different approach this year.  I added my Ribbon Ruffled Pumpkin, Fall Blocks, and a few other fun items to the floor area.  I kind of like it!

Next up was the kitchen table.  I distressed this cute crate a long time ago, and have found it to be so useful!  It is constantly being changed out for the season.  This fall, I utilized it as a centerpiece.  I found some artificial flowers at the Dollar Tree, spray painted Mason jars with a gold metallic finish, and they all fit so nicely in the crate!

Finally, the front door.  I dismantled my previous wreath, so all I was left with was the foam circle.  While at the Dollar Tree, buying the pretty fall flowers, I came across this adorable chevron fall ribbon.  Love it!  So, it became my wreath.  I wrapped the wreath in the ribbon.  Then, I followed the same technique I used to make the Ribbon Ruffled Pumpkin to apply the ribbon to the foam wreath.  Finally, I added a cross I also found at the Dollar Tree and done!


What do you think?  Have you started decorating for fall in your house yet?  Or do you strictly wait until October 1st?  Feel free to share your fall decor projects on the My Favorite Finds Facebook Page. I’d love to see them!
