As summer winds down, the temperatures start to drop and you see pumpkin everything everywhere it is time to get into the Fall spirit.
However if you’re like me and live in a tiny tiny apartment it can be hard to decorate for fall without having a clutters space and breaking the buget.
So because we definitely don’t want to miss out here are some items that you can get that are budget-friendly and will help you spice things up at home no matter how big or small.
So lets go.
How can I decorate my small apartment for fall?
The key to decorating a small apartment for fall is to keep things simple. And that means you can easily do this on a budget because simple does not have to cost a lot of money.
Here are some decorating ideas to get in the holiday spirit.
Wreaths are a great way to bring the autumn spirit into your home. Can you create your own or just buy a ready-made wreath.
And if you’re not the crafty type here are some awesome ones I found on Amazon. Click on the photos to check them out.
Flowers are great way to really add a little touch of luxury to any space. You can actually find amazing fall flowers in Trader Joe’s. I recently got a bouquet with sunflowers for under $4 that lasted over a week.
A great alternative though are faux flowers. These are great because they last longer, look great in pictures and when fall is over you can store them away and bring them back out for next year.

These Hydrangeas are the just perfect pop of color for any surface in your home.
These eucalyptus stems are great too as you can place them in small vases in different areas of the house to really liven things up.
There is something about pumpkins that scream fall, halloween and thanksgiving. Talk about a triple threat.
You can find pumpkins in all sizes for relatively inexpensive at most supermarkets or farmers markets. However you can also find faux pumpkins on line. This set of white pumpkins from amazon are so fun and chic.
If you want something a bit more traditional this set is also pretty cool and even includes leaves for a nice finishing touch.
Candles are a great way to set the mood. The glow of the flame is enough to make things feel warm and cozy. But look for candles with fall scents like pumpkin spice, apple or even cinnamon.
How do you decorate for fall?
Create a fall centerpiece
This is where you can have fun. You can find mini pumpkins and gourds from the local farmers market, whole foods or Trader Joes for less than a dollar a piece. Throw them in a bowl and you have yourself a cute (and inexpensive) fall centerpiece.
Or check out these faux sunflowers. Put them in a mason jar and you have yourself a cute and easy centerpiece.
Try a fall scented hand soap in the kitchen/bathroom
This is my favorite hack. You can find a great hand soap for under $5 and everytime you use it you will definitely get that fall feeling.
I am loving the apple cider foaming soap from Trader Joe’s however if you don’t have one nearby this orange clove hand soap sounds amazing and these from Mrs. Meyers are awesome. And you can get them on Amazon.
Make things cozy
When the weather starts to change all we want to do is cuddle up. Create a cozy atmosphere with throws and throw pillows.
In order to save opt for pillow covers that you can swap out with the seasons.
These from Amazon are great. I got them in gold and they were an inexpensive way to change things up. Look for items in fall colors like gold and orange. This will help to bring a little bit of fall inside by making things fall colorful.
Create a mood with string lights
When I think of fall I think of cozy nights by the fire. But we are not all lucky to have a fireplace.
So if you are one of those you can create ambiance with string lights. Go for those that give out a warm glow like these.
Dial up the plaid
If you’re not a fan of the traditional pumpkin theme try a plaid theme. This is a great way to bring in some fall.
Check out these plaid accessories for the home that are all budget friendly (Most are under $20).
How do you decorate a fall balcony?
If you’re lucky to have an outdoor space many of the same tricks you used inside can also be used on your balcony to have you feeling fall vibes outdoors.
If you have a table start by adding a cute tablecloth like this one that screams fall.
And can we say pumpkins. I mean how cute is this set up.
When should you start decorating for fall?
Most people will start decorating right after Labor Day. However it is entirely up to you. Anything between September through November is fair game.
And keep in mind that a lot of fall decorations double as great thanksgiving decorations so you can definitely do double duty.
