7 DIY Fun Fall Decorations

Nothing builds up anticipation for the holidays like décor. The right decorations can brighten someone’s day, or set the mood for an extravagant dinner party or be a great activity for the kids. The only downside is cost, not everyone has the disposable income to change the appearance of their home seasonally. The SavingStar team is on it – here are a couple of low-cost and creative ideas that make your living space an autumn dream from September to November.

1. Mason Jar Candle Holder

The best part about this decoration is how accessible and inexpensive mason jars are. Chances are you probably already have one in your home. Leaves are also an easy find, but if you live somewhere that doesn’t experience Fall foliage, anything earthy will work – like twigs, bark or vines. Try incorporating a scented candle to really take this craft to the next level. The right fragrance concept can change the mood of a party!

2. Succulent Pumpkins

Succulents are a magical plant because they can survive anything – even neglect! With minimal effort required, but maximum aesthetic pleasure, this DIY is a win-win. This is a great way to decorate pumpkins without having to gut seeds and carve out jagged pieces. Less mess, happier you. They look great both indoor and outside, and are a great craft to do with kids.

3. Cinnamon Stick Candles

This decoration idea is super easy, and will make your home smell like a spiced paradise. Pair a few succulent pumpkins, this DIY is the perfect center piece for your next gathering. It also looks extremely elegant on a coffee table or as a shelf decoration! Your house will smell like a spiced paradise, without much effort. You can take all the credit when your guest shower you in compliments – we don’t mind. 😉

4. Glitter leaf garland

Here’s a great one for the kids, or if Fall Glam is your jam. Just collect leaves, sparkle them up and tie to a garland. You can make one for each room! Not only are leaves FREE – this sparkly garland can add a little pizazz to a plain entryway or simple staircase. Who doesn’t love glitter?!?!

5. Painted Pinecones

Another good one for the kiddies – painting pinecones is easy, fun, and will keep your little ones distracted (for a little while at least). There are so many placement options as well – you can hang them on your door, place them on a table, or fill a vase. The possibilities are endless. Roll them in glitter while the paint is still wet for a little extra mesmerizing effect.

6. Chalk Board Decorations

Chalk boards are the best! With the right amount of creative spirit, you can transform a blank slate into the fall scene of your dreams. Whether you are menu planning, writing poems, or making hand turkeys, you’ll love the versatility of this craft board. Try having your kids spell fall themed words for to make it an intellectual experience.

7. Vase Revamping (Watch out Pottery Barn)

Want to take the simplest route when it comes to decorations? Try putting fall artifacts together in a see-through vase or tray. The great thing about vases is they can be reused for every season. Fill a gumball machine with candy corn, line up mini pumpkins on your counter or windowsill – get crazy with it! You can also make it a game for your kids; see who can collect the most acorns.
