Frugal Ways To Decorate For Fall
Now that the kids are heading back to school, Fall feels like it's right behind them. This is when we start to cozy up our homes and gather the pumpkins. But this year we want to help you give your home a fall makeover without needing to rummage through the stores and face the crowds of people at the pumpkin patches.
Look Around And Rethink What You Might Throw Away
This trick to fall décor means looking carefully at things you might have tossed. I had some eucalyptus branches in a flower arrangement about to be thrown away, but I love the texture of the leaves. So I took several more unusual drying flowers and stems and placed them outside to dry.
I cut some of the tall grasses in my garden, and one of my old fall vases became the best place for this new dry arrangement. Best of all, it didn't cost me a thing!
Light Some Candles
I love Halloween. So I always stock up on decorations after the big day. I love when I can use them for multiple seasonal displays. Candles are an easy way to scent the room and bring some subtle light to a darker corner. Blend together with some older elements like a book, locked box, or a tray for a collective look.
Flowers Always Know How To Brighten A Room
My garden is still in full bloom, bursting with roses and sunflowers. So while I can, I bring them inside for fresh flower displays. I like to pull flowers with peach tones, oranges, and even dark yellows into new arrangements.
In my garden, I grow things specifically for decorating and with fall in mind. We have pumpkins, gourds, and some thistle and sunflowers for late fall displays.
Don't Forget Your Table
This year will be especially hard for social gatherings. We usually have friends and family over for Rosh Hashanah. I love decorating the table and planning out the meals.
This year, we will be moving our table outside and keeping it to a tiny group. But that doesn't mean I have to give up my table decorating!
Think About Creating Cozy Spaces
Dig into your closets and find those crochet blankets and knitted pillows. Fall is the time to enjoy the textures and warmth of comfort items that might not always fit in.
One of the things I love about fall is that suddenly that weird duck pillow from your Grandma's house seems to work! Or the tray that didn't have a purpose before can now be piled high with candles and tiny pumpkins!
Create spaces that make you want to settle down with a book and hot apple cider!
However you decorate, we know that good farmhouse décor pulls in the textures and feel of country living. From upcycled candles wrapped in texture rich burlap, to simple harvest branches in farmhouse pails, modern farmhouse décor always keeps it simple.
