Budget-Friendly DIY ideas for decorating your home for Fall this season you will love! And don't forget to have cute art and craft ideas ready for the kids, because those make the best handmade Autumn decorations ever!!







Fall is my favorite season, hands down. I love the weather, the gorgeous colors on the tree leaves, and just the excitement that comes with looking forward to the holiday season. 

And the decorating. I mean, really, is it ever too soon to start decorating for Autumn ?? 

Okay, so if you are wondering when do you start decorating for fall for real, I say early September or even late August, or at the very latest, when stores start putting out pumpkins. 

I am usually getting out my favorite Autumn decor in late August!😍

And then, there is fall baking.

Like, fall isn't really here until there is a batch of warm pumpkin oatmeal cookies on the counter. And the house is smelling all spicy and yummy.

But back to the decorating. I love getting our house decorated for Autumn. 

Since I am also all about saving money and making extra money for Christmas,  I mostly stick to DIY inexpensive ideas for fall like baskets of pine cones, pumpkin scented candles, and cozy blankets.

If you are wondering how to make your home cozy on a budget, these easy budget-friendly DIY Fall decorating ideas should give you extra home decorating inspiration this season.
