Inexpensive Autumn Décor Accents

Fall is the season of bountiful harvests. Transform your décor with rich color and warmth. Here are a few ways you can add fall accents to your home:
Get Ornamental Gourds
And not just the requisite pumpkin for the porch, but several small-to-large ornamental gourds to be used as a dining room table centerpiece, as a coffee table prop, and even to place here and there on bookshelves. Ornamental gourds come in many sizes and shapes and are very appealing during the harvest season.
Decorate with Flowers in Seasonal Colors
On your front door, place a wreath abundant with dried blooms interspersed on a grapevine. Consider hydrangea, yarrow, and goldenrod for a warm welcome to your home. Also, place fall-inspired floral arrangements—with red, orange, and yellow flowers—throughout your house.
Celebrate the Season with Scented Candles
Find an interesting container, such as a small round copper tub, and fill it with water. Then add some novelty candles that float (e.g., apple-shaped and scented—available at large craft stores) and scatter some autumn leaves around its base for accent. Add other scented candles around the house in fall fragrances like nutmeg and spice.
Add an Extra Touch with Inexpensive Fabrics
Go shopping at antique stores or flea markets for fabric in golds, yellows, oranges, browns, and reds. Make new curtains or an autumn tablecloth. Flea markets are great places to find old quilts in fall colors—even if it's not in great condition, it can be used for various autumn crafts.
