100 inexpensive and easy fall decor ideas

Decorate on a budget this fall with these cheap and easy fall decorating ideas. From DIY fall centerpieces to DIY fall wreaths, there are lots of economical fall crafts to choose from. There are fall decorations inside and out.

The only craft materials you will need for these projects are:

  • Hot glue gun (my favorite is that one from Amazon, it’s a mini so it’s perfect for small projects like these and it comes with glue sticks).
  • Mod Podge
  • The scissors
  • Small paint brush or sponge.
  • Cutting pliers for flowers. .
  • Acrylic paint or spray paint. You can get small bottles of acrylic paint for $ 0.50 at Walmart, but you will probably need a larger bottle of $ 1 if you are doing multiple projects.

The following articles will show you how to store pumpkins, leaves, acorns, etc. for decoration:

Some sources for these projects are unknown. Please let me know if you know who owns these images and I will be happy to provide them with a link.
