2.Small Accents Make a Big Difference

While a lot of throw pillows have gotten weirdly expensive in recent years, you can still find some great choices to dress up your living room.

Sometimes you don’t need to do anything because fall will do all the work for you. Trees drop branches, leaves fall, and flowers fade, but that doesn’t have to be the end for them. Go on a scavenger hunt for fallen beauties that will look lovely in a wicker vase – it could be shrubbery, twigs, or dried flowers. Pine cones are also usually easy to find and make great accessories for side tables and other settings.

4.Don’t Forget the Grocery Store

You know all those random pumpkin-looking things you walk by in the grocery store every October? Well, you’re probably right about a lot of them, but some of them are squashes. More importantly, they are an affordable way of bringing fall to your dining table. Put down a cake platter and arrange then to your taste for a quick and easy centerpiece. If you want to add that certain something, you can personalize them with some of your colors.

5.Make it Your Own

If you’re crafty, you might want to blaze your own decorative trail into fall. Create some harvest magic with an upcycled fall wreath and some sweater sleeve pumpkins. The Dollar Tree is a good place to get the craft supplies for a rope vase, a farmhouse candle holder, or dip-dyed candles.
