What's the Deal: Fall Décor on a budget

It's the first weekend of October, have you started thinking about fall decorations? Before you run to the store here are a few ideas to help you decorate in style on a budget!

First thing you want to do is shop your home. That's really the best rule-of-thumb for anything you do.

So, you've got your pumpkin, now what? Instead of carving it, designer Dwight Woodbury suggests spray painting it! Try greens or this antiqued gold. "Just by switching out the color palette it feels a little bit more elegant," he said. "These are like self-adhesive simulated rhinestones and they peel right off - peel and stick."

A vase is more than just for flowers! Easily turn it into a ghoulish decoration for fall using black aquarium rocks, a candle and paper decals. "Keeping with our same color palette the black and green, I've taken an existing Christmas wreath that I already had and spray-painted it black," he said.

Just lightly spray so it creates shadows. Dwight uses a wall planter, gourds and fresh flowers to decorate. "We can always add like a spider and some cob webbing if you like," he said. "To finish it off we can add a door greater." Yes, this is just a picture frame!

Check out this wreath Dwight made using a wall sconce, the planter, fresh apples, dried oranges and pinecones from the backyard.
