I recently read an article about fall decorating and the first idea was to hang a $150 wreath on your front door. I will never ever spend $150 on a wreath! Since I’m a real person with a real budget, I figured I’d round up some Fall decorating ideas you can actually afford.

Fall is the perfect time of year to take the things that you can find around the house and turn them into something special.

Fall is a giving season. There are so many natural elements that you can put to use. Leaves are the perfect material for creating fall decorating ideas you can actually afford.

Leaves are a great example. They are so colorful and free! Key word being free. String them into garlands. Press them into frames. Scatter them around a centerpiece. Add them to a wreath (that doesn’t cost $150).

Pumpkins are especially affordable if you grow them yourself. You can use them as candle holders, centerpieces, or porch decor. Put them anywhere!
