I absolutely love decorating my home for fall. I feel like fall until January is the best time to decorate your home. This year, I went with a harvest home decor theme.

Last year I did all pastels, with pink pumpkins, muted velvet pumpkins, and spray-painted black hot chocolate containers with cotton stems.

To create a more harvest feel, I decided to change it up a bit with more oranges and golds. I also was able to pull out the muted velvet pumpkins and cotton stems. I think it is so fun to swap up and change every year, because it is a challenge to see what I can create without spending much money on adding more decor to our space.

I found most of my pieces from The Dollar Store, which is perfect because it is time for another round of My Dollar Store DIY!!

How To Create Harvest Home Decor On A Budget

Adding Light

After I pulled out my bin for all my fall decor, I was able to gauge what I had. So I made a trip to my local Dollar Store to find some ways to incorporate harvest home decor to my current fall decor.

I found some adorable leaf lights, burlap, tissue paper, small pumpkins, and glass vases. My initial thought was to add the leaf lights with the tissue paper to the glass vases. Then add a burlap ribbon. But once I got home, I quickly realized that the glass vases didn’t make it easy to turn the lights on and off.

So I grabbed my favorite lanterns I got as part of a fundraiser with Yankee Candle. I wrapped the leaf lights around the crumpled tissue paper. Then I removed the bottom of the lantern so I could easily turn the lights on and off.

Use What You Have

Since I decided to use my lanterns, I still had the burlap and the glass vases. I took the burlap and turned it into a burlap wreath and hung it up on my oversized chalkboard.

I also pulled out those muted velvet pumpkins, a yellow table runner, and my trifle bowl. I filled the trifle bowl with the white and green pumpkins I found at the Dollar Store.

Using what you have and adding small pieces to your harvest home decor is a really nice way to add some fall to your home without having to start from scratch!

Minimal Is Ok

Now, I didn’t want to go crazy with all the fall decor, so I stuck with minimal pieces added around our home. I stored the pumpkins I made last year in our living room, but I swapped out the pastel ribbon for something that fit the harvest home decor theme!
