Eeep! We’re just on the cusp of my VERY favorite season and I’m pumped about decorating our house! Fall decor is so much fun and it’s SO easy (and inexpensive!) to welcome its colors into your home. We’ve recently moved, which means MOST of my decor is stashed in boxes, just waiting to be unpacked, but I have a few ideas on how I and my daughter can craft up some fun and simple fall decor — after just a quick trip to the dollar store!

The dollar store is my secret weapon for awesome seasonal decor. During autumn and moving into the holidays, you can find the BEST items that just need a bit of tweaking to look like you picked them up somewhere much fancier. Today I’m sharing some cool ideas for dollar store decorating that you can try out with your fam too! Enjoy!
