With the changing of the seasons, there’s no better time to change up the decor in your home. Change is good! And I know that I crave different things to look at, different things to cozy up with on cooler nights. The best part is that all this change in your home doesn’t have to cost you a lot of change from your wallet.
Some things are no-brainers. Like a cozy throw over a chair or sofa to curl up with while watching some of the new fall TV shows.
Speaking of throws and blankets, have any old ones laying around that you don’t really use anymore? Why not cut them up and make some pillows out of them? Old army blankets make great candidates for this and can easily be found at military surplus stores for not too much money.
Bare walls got you down? And easy and inexpensive way to add some interest any time of the year is to hang up some plates. You can find inexpensive plates so easily – from places like Home Goods and thrift stores, to garage sales, and even mis-matched ones in your pantry. Whether you decide on a theme of color or design, or no theme at all, I love plates hung on walls.
Books are also great to decorate with. If you are lucky enough to have a lot of them, why not display them? Stacked on a shelf or mantle, they can bring interest and coziness to a room.
Of course, one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to decorate for fall is to bring in some of fall’s natural beauty – like leaves and branches, flowers or gourds.
