In most parts of the country, fall is in full swing. Here in Texas? We are sweating in our riding boots and sipping pumpkin lattes in full denial. It’s 82 degrees out in early October, but soon we will get a taste of the glories of fall. In the meantime, we might as well get our homes ready! Luckily, it doesn’t cost a lot to decorate for each season— here are some ways to enjoy cheap fall decorations.

Hang a wreath
There are so many cute fall wreaths out! Whether you decide to DIY one (this one is so easy and so super cute!) or buy one, set the stage for a festive home right at the front door.
Light some candles
One of my favorite cheap fall decorations is a candle! To me, a lit candle makes an entire room suddenly more cozy and festive. While it’s still too warm for a full fire in the fireplace (at least here in the south!), cozy up your space with a flickering candle or two. I also really like these led-candles from Amazon—no risk of burning your home down!
It’s amazing how flowers can completely change a space. Consider adding a potted mum to your front porch, some greenery to your table, or add a vase of fall-hued flowers to your living room.
No other fruit says fall like apples—an edible version of cheap fall decorations. They are in season and taste amazing—my personal favorite is the Honeycrisp. Leave a bowl of apples out on your counter or dining table for a pretty(and tasty!) snack. Squash or pears will also do the trick if you aren’t an apple fan.
Oh, how I adore colorful leaf garlands in the fall! I’m a firm believer in adding a bit of whimsy and playfulness to a home, and what better way to do it then a leaf garland? While you can purchase some fairly inexpensive ones from a craft store, or here on Amazon, you can also DIY your own
Plaid pillows + a throw
If fall had a signature fabric, it would be plaid. Dress your sofa up for the season by layering in some fall pillows. You can find inexpensive options on Amazon. Also, in keeping with the cozy fall theme, add a throw blanket or two to your couch or armchair.
Saved the best for last! Pumpkins, of course! Mini pumpkins are totally affordable and can be used to dress your table or make a cute accent. Larger pumpkins can also be displayed throughout the home—I prefer to invest in craft pumpkins so I can use them year after year.
