Earlier this week I shared how I made my simple and budget friendly fall wreath. I want to show you some other budget friendly ways I’m adding some fall touches to our home. As an added bonus, I’m including some of my super talented blogger friends who are also sharing their fall homes.

I’m taking a different approach this year with decorating and instead of decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving individually, I’m decorating for Fall in general. In addition to taking a slow more laid back approach and adding subtle touches here and there, I’m also keeping it pretty budget friendly.
Shop your home
I try not to buy any additional holiday decor simply because we just don’t have the storage for a lot of things. I’ll use some of the same base items, like the galvanized olive buckets, and switch out what’s inside. For fall the obvious choice is mums, but I could also use them to hold a bunch of pumpkins too. Then at Christmas time, I’ll take out the mums and use lighted Christmas trees.
I’m also a huge fan of mason jars and use them year round for decor in various ways. Here I’ve added some twine and dried wheat.
Invest in faux
It’s crazy how far faux florals have come over the years. When I made the wreath I was very impressed with how realistic the flowers looked. I had left over stems that I placed in a pitcher I was already using for decor.
In addition to the faux florals I added some faux acorns I bought years ago. Last year I used these same acorns as vase filler.
Think outside the box
Instead of buying table cloths, if I want a pop of color, I’ll use a blanket scarf or even a folded piece of fabric. This year I found a pretty plaid flannel print that coordinated with my current decor.
I am a firm believer that you can have subtle touches and achieve the same feeling without breaking the bank or needing copious amounts of storage for all the extras. Most importantly, enjoy the process of transforming your home into a space that makes you happy.

Your fall touches are so pretty, Brooke! Great tip on using a scarf on a table!
I love that you’re decorating for fall instead of two holidays but I’m wondering where that leaves the dragon!!
I’m so glad you could be part of my celebrating fall home tour series! Thanks for joining us!
I mean the dragon will definitely make an appearance in the yard for sure!! 🙂
Brooke – you are so talented! I love how welcoming this entry is – perfectly autumnal! What a joy it’s been being a part of this fall home tour with you.
Jen that is just the sweetest, thank you!
I love the idea of using what you already have and adding touches of fall here and there. That helps to keep it organized used when you do y have huge boxes of decor. It has been a great being on the tour with you.
Thank you so much Sonya!! This has been a lot of fun!
Great tips for budget-friendly fall decor, Brooke! Love the aqua you are using, too! (one of my fave colors). So fun touring with you! Blessed! (Pinned)
I definitely want to keep the coastal feel with a nod to fall. Thank you for stopping by!
Brooke I love your budget friendly tips! I am all about shopping my home…your touches of Fall are just beautiful!
Thank you Kelly!! I can’t wait to gradually add a little more in here and there.
All of your fall touches are so pretty, Brooke!
I love all of your fall touches. And I’m with you and try to decorate for fall in general instead of Halloween and Thanksgiving. Love the metal and jars!
It just makes things a lot easier for me to just do fall. It at least gives me a chance to get a good start when it’s time to decorate for Christmas.
