Use what you have!

I know I preach that over and over – but often times, it’s the best, most frugal WAY to decorate! So dig through your storage area, and look to see what you have.

Add a decorative touch to your already existing décor with a splash of color. This time of year, go with burnt oranges, greens, reds, and other rich hues. Look for inexpensive seasonal candles, artificial gourds and fruit, and silk garland or flowers. Then use them to decorate two or three focal pieces in your house like a decorative vase, glass bowl, or seasonal items like these ceramic pumpkins. They’ll look fabulous on a buffet, dining table, or bookcase and cost next to nothing.

Another inexpensive trick to dress up a window is to make two handmade bows and use them as tie- backs for your curtains or sheers. Be sure to add a ribbon runner along the valance or curtain rod for a complete look. This simple change will dress up any room.
