Fall Decorating for Cheap

I’m going to be honest, the main reason I got an apartment instead of living in the dorm was purely to decorate for holidays. I love fall. Too much. It’s unhealthy. So, of course, I had to decorate my whole apartment accordingly. I needed to feel warm fuzzies every day. And so I started the process of course with my coffee station, which got a remodel for the season that I’m obsessed with. My morning happy place needed an upgrade. I wanted to switch things up without actually switching things up. You know what I mean? So I found simple, inexpensive (broke college kid remember) ways to spice it up a bit. First, I found the little jelly stickers at the dollar store and stuck them onto the Keurig for a nice fall upgrade because let’s face it, my Keurig needs a Halloween costume. For the pictures on the walls, I got some prints blown up at Walgreens and then added fall leaves to the existing signs on the walls. After raiding the dollar store one more time, I found some garlands and draped them above the kitchen cabinets (also found a garland at Hobby Lobby that is up there as well), and then bought some more fall leaves and scattered them legit everywhere. I bought some towels, mugs and some other fall decorations at Walmart. I grabbed some burlap from my parents house, painted on letters with a stencil and then tied it to a pillow to be, well, even more, extra than I already am. I already had a lot of the pillows in my room since I love a cozy look, so I moved them to the living room. I also scoured Etsy for mug decals, so I didn’t have to fork(s) up (ASU pun, GO DEVILS) 40$ for a designer mug.  And BOOM fall-ified. Really it was that easy. The whole process probably cost me less than 75$ and I wish I could keep it like this year-round. If you thought Bridezillas were bad, believe me Fallzillas are worse. And yes, you guessed it, I do fall into that category. 


My pride. My joy. My child.


The most versatile piece for seasonal decorating.
