It doesn’t make much to style a home for fall. Honestly, decorating for fall is easier than decorating for Christmas, in my opinion. Here’s a quick example of a style coffee table that isn’t so Pinterest Perfect, but fabulously frugal. Anyone who knows me will be more than aware that I am a penny pincher! You should see how diligent I am when finding the cheapest home and auto insurance deals online. Everything currently on my coffee table was all less than $10 each. All you need is time, and willingness to check out for local thrift stores, weekend flea markets, Dollar Trees, and clearance sale days at your favorite retailers (My Fav Spots: Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and also Bath And Body Works!)
Here I’ll list a few items I purchased at my local favorite shops, that didn’t cost me an arm and a leg. These items can be styled so easily with any style you have that suites the personality of any home, willing to add in the touch of fall!!!

- -Leaf Candy Dish
- -Faux Pumpkin
- -One Wick Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Candle
- -Decorative Skeleton
Pumpkin Candle Holder
Purchased a thrift store last year for $4. Every fall I go on a seasonal decorative hunt strictly for pumpkins. Last year, I collected quite a few, but a great beginning to a tradition I plan to continue every year for fall decorating. The metal bronze like pumpkin candle holder had enough space to fit in a decorate pumpkin which I added.
Leaf Candy Dish
Also thrifted, purchased at a Savers for $2. A Better Homes and Gardens brand (Originally sold at WalMart) this candy dish sit’s perfectly next to my pumpkin display. It usually contains bobby pins I take off at the end of the night, car keys, sunglasses, or misc. tiny toys I find on the carpet through the day. OCD Me usually clears out the leaf dish, and placing the random items back to it’s proper place.
I purchased a bunch of these faux pumpkin’s during a visit to a flea market last year. Faux pumpkin’s are usually scattered in different corners of my home. Bookshelves, night stands, coffee end tables, they add that simple decorative harvest touch to the home. Easy to style. Easy to decorate.
One Wick Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Candle
A one wick candle purchased at Bath And Body Works. Stay alert with those coupons, and special clearance days. These babies usually cost $12! So expensive, but when you can buy these candles on those special days when its a buy 2 get one free, or 50% off days, it’s nice to capitalize on those sale dates! Candle buyers know. Sale dates are IMPORTANT!
(A simple Halloween touch!)
This is one of the easiest ways to decorate for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Pumpkins throughout October and November are a no brainer. Adding a simple Halloween spooky skeleton takes literally no effort. I purchased a garland of skeletons from the DollarTree, and took them apart. Easily adding them wherever it seemed right. The skeleton man, sits aside from the faux pumpkin. Easy styling made simple, and simply remove it the day after Halloween, and there your styled pumpkin arrangement is still presentable for Thanksgiving!
I hope these simple festive fall decor tips helped!! Thrift stores, flea markets, and DollarTree spots are my home. My holy grail spots to shop before settling with Target!
