Whether you are living in a dorm or an apartment or home of your own, you are most likely planning out your decorations for the upcoming fall season. No matter what your budget is, you can easily find so many decorations within your price range to cover almost every inch of your space! With a little intention and creativity, you can easily transform every room.
Here are some insanely cute fall decor tricks that you are bound to love!
1. Use Natural Decorations From Outdoors
Make sure they are bug-free first but feel free to go outside and let nature inspire your decoration process! You can add some pinecones on your mantle, or arrange them in a bowl or jar for something simple and effective. Bring some of your favorite leaves indoors and use them how you like to add some natural color and vividness to your space!
2. Coordinate Your Pumpkins And Greenery
Well, maybe not actual greenery, but if you plan to use real or fake plants of some variety to decorate with, consider choosing pieces that are on-theme for fall! If you stick to colors like white, red, sage, and orange, it will make your decorated spaces look much more intentional and beautiful.
3. Use Your Veggies
Want some cute fall decor pieces that you won’t have to put in storage? Consider buying some pretty squashes and gourds to decorate your space with during the fall months! Not only do they look nice, but they are all-natural and you use them to cook with too. Just don’t leave them out for too long if you are planning to use them for food!
4. Make Focal Points In Your Kitchen
Fall decor tricks don’t have to be overcomplicated or expensive! You can add a bit of fall to every space in your home with a little creativity. Instead of spreading decor over all your flat counter space in the kitchen, find one counter that you rarely use, or can be easily seen by anyone who enters and decorate that! Fill a vase with some wheat, add a pumpkin, and a candle for a cute, cohesive look.
5. Season Inspired Cookware And Cutlery
Some people enjoy using seasonally inspired cookware, cups, plates, and more to help them get into the mood of the season! Whether this takes the form of pumpkin-shaped cookie jars, pots, or cute coffee mugs with fall phrases, you cannot go wrong by using these in your life and leaving them out on display. Decorations that serve multiple purposes are simple fall decor tricks everyone should try!
6. Fall-Themed Doormats
Most people are obsessed with doormats and have at least ten at once–one for every season of course! As the cooler months approach, stores everywhere have so many options when it comes to elevating your front door. Find one or two mats that you love and alternate them for some and easy outdoor decor! These fall decor tricks are perfect if you have a tight budget for outdoor decorations.
7. Keep It Subtle With Caramel And Cinnamon
Take those fall decor tricks however you like and run with it! If you love the fall season, but don’t like the cheesy decorations, these are the perfect color options for you. Not only do these colors look classy and sophisticated, but they are a subtle way to add fall color to your space without those neon orange pumpkins! Sometimes the simplest ideas can have the most visual impact.
8. Everything “Boo” Themed
If you want to keep your decorations cute and simple, try picking pieces that go perfectly together! This ensures that you will not feel overwhelmed by the decorations you choose and that they all look great in your space. Keep it simple and adorable with a fall-themed blanket and some seasonal pillows!
9. White And Sage Based Decor
Adding fall decorations to your space does not have to make your rooms less cohesive! Sticking with color themes is a simple and beautiful way to dress up your space for the season without compromising your personal taste. Find cute little decorations that fit your taste and vision and run with it!
10. Orange-Based Fall Decor
If you love all things fall-themed, try keeping your decorations centered around a single color to ensure cohesiveness throughout your space! The transition between fall, to Halloween, to Thanksgiving can be simple and seamless by sticking to one color scheme. Plus you can always keep some of your base fall pieces up throughout the months and simply add or remove pieces that do not fit the upcoming holiday!
11. Cute Signs With Words
While they might be considered basic, there is never a shortage of adorable signs with cute fall words and phrases on them! You can easily control the price by where you choose to shop and how large or small they are. They work as the perfect space fillers and look amazing in every room!
12. Spruce Up Your Couch With Fall Colors
You can easily spice up your living room by tossing some fall-colored pillows on your seating! Whether you want to keep them cohesive throughout the room, or simply want as many pillows as possible, you can never go wrong. Just make sure to arrange them to give them the love they deserve before showing off your newly decorated space to your friends and loved ones!
13. Decorate Your Doors With Wreaths
While they can certainly become pricey, wreaths covered in leaves, pumpkins, and everything else fall-themed are simple ways to dress up your doors! If you are feeling inspired, try making your own wreaths so you can control the cost and what they look like.
14. Cute Fall-Scented Candles Everywhere
Fall-scented candles are essentials when it comes to fall decor tricks for any and every room! You can have multiple candles in one room, or spread them throughout your space for a little bit of fall everywhere. Start off with a few candles and burn them up instead of filling up your bag at the beginning of Septemeber! Chances are that you might not burn them all before Christmas if you buy too many. Opt for candles with cute packaging so they can double as simple decorations!
15. Use Some Cute Garland
Whether you choose to go for fall-colored pom-poms, candy corn or otherwise, you can easily elevate your space with something simple! You can usually find plenty of affordable options no matter where you are and something that perfectly suits your taste in decor.
16. Pumpkins Everywhere
No matter what your taste in fall decorations is, there is always at least one or ten pumpkins that suit you! Shop around before fall begins to get the best deals and check the shelves again around Christmastime for amazing clearance prices. There is no such thing as too many pumpkins, so use as many as you would like to decorate your space!
17. Use Candy As Decoration
Chances are that you are probably going to buy plenty of fall-flavored candy anyway so why not display them in jars? Pour your candy corn or other sweets into a clear container to show them off!
18. Deck Out Your Bathroom For The Season
There are no rules when it comes to fall decor tricks, so why not let your love of the season into your bathroom as well? Add some cute pumpkins, pinecones, and candles to help your bathroom smell and look like fall! Just make sure not to overdo it on decorations so you are not always knocking everything into the sink or the floor.
19. Fill Baskets With Fall Decorations
Choose some open weave or metal baskets to display and store your favorite fall pieces. Whether that means you toss your fall-colored blankets inside or keep all your spare pumpkins there, you cannot go wrong with this easy decor idea!
20. Keep It Cute And Simple
If you are still living in a dorm, a small space, or simply have a limited budget, you can very easily find some fall decor tricks that are perfect for you! LED lights are always on-trend no matter the season, and you can always find some in the dollar section at your favorite department store. Buy a cute fall-themed pumpkin or two to give your space a simple but effective fall transformation!

Hi! My name is Hannah Warren and I just graduated from Mercer University with a B.A. in English. During my time at Mercer, I studied both Creative Writing and Media Studies so I have dabbled in multiple writing genres including fiction, nonfiction, playwriting, and more! Playwrighting and nonfiction are my favorite genres because more people relate to and understand the work when it is raw, genuine, and mentions different problems that most people are familiar with or have experienced first-hand. I have a bad habit of starting projects and not finishing them, but I am proud to say I am drafting a romance novel that I hope to have published one day! Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, and I hope you will continue to read more of my little articles in the future!
