As the summer sun fades into a soft Autumn breeze, it’s time to switch up your home decor game and make your house feel cozy and inviting for the Fall season. If you’re looking for wallet-friendly decorating options, you’re in the right place! In this blog post, I’ve curated a list of the best budget friendly Fall decor from Amazon that will not only add an autumnal touch to your home but also won’t break the bank. These are Fall decor items I ACTUALLY USE in my own home and love. So, let’s get started!
This year, I decorated my living room for Fall in warm shades of brown, gold, burnt orange and cream. I love how cozy and relaxing the room feels, and surprisingly a lot of the accents I used are from Amazon!
Embrace Quilted Textures
Quilting is trending this season, and it’s a beautiful way to add a cozy handmade texture into your living room or bedroom this Fall. This stunning Indian Kantha quilt from Amazon is a delicious warm golden yellow colour, and it looks lovely as a throw blanket on a sofa or bed. When this quilt arrived, I was taken aback by how beautiful it is in person, and I know we’ll enjoy it for many years to come.
You can also DIY your own quilted-look throw pillow buy buying a cushion like this one from Amazon. Then, use a yarn needle and some thin yarn and create a running stitch every 1/2″ along the pillow. Get the full tutorial to create a faux quilted pillow like this right here.
Add Warmth with Autumnal Pillows
As the weather gets chilly, it’s time to swap out your lightweight summer pillows and throws for cozier, warmer options. Decorative pillows in sherpa fabrics and warm colours like brown and burnt orange can instantly add warmth to your living space and make it feel more inviting. And, since they’re relatively affordable, you don’t need to splurge to get the look. Adding seasonal throw pillows is my #1 favourite way to change the look of my living room or bedroom on a budget.
My favourite Amazon throw pillow covers for Fall:
- boho style pillow covers in brown and blue
- linen like pillow covers in the hazel brown colour
- sherpa pillow covers in grayish white (Amazon Canada only)
- striped lumbar pillows in khaki for a Farmhouse look
What’s the best throw pillow insert?
My favourite throw pillow insert for pillow covers like the ones above are the down inserts from IKEA. These are the most affordable pillow inserts I’ve found, and I love the expensive down look and feel. You can double them up inside a 20″ pillow cover for a fuller look, or buy an 18″ pillow cover and place the 20″ insert inside.
Decorate with Autumn Leaves to Set the Mood
Nothing screams fall more than Fall-coloured foliage. Not only does it create a seasonal atmosphere, but you can buy faux stems to use year after year. You can place Fall leaf stems in a vase on your coffee table, mantel, or sideboard to add ambiance and a pop of colour and a touch of Autumn to your home.

Display Pumpkins and Gourds
Pumpkins and gourds are the quintessential symbols of fall, and they make great decor pieces. You can display them on your front porch, in your living room, or even on your dinner table. Not only are decorative pumpkins affordable, but they also come in a range of colors, sizes, and materials (including glass, wood, and metal). Plus, they’re versatile enough to keep on display well into the holiday season. I like to purchase real pumpkins from our local pumpkin farm to display in early Fall, and then we eat them after so nothing goes to waste.
My current favourite pumpkin decoration? This ADORABLE sherpa pumpkin pillow from Amazon! It’s so well made, and it’s the perfect addition to our Fall sofa in the living room. You could also use this as tabletop decor.
Create a Cozy Coffee Table Display
Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a good book and a warm drink, and creating a cozy coffee tabletop display can make the experience even more enjoyable. To do that, you can add a tray to your coffee table with candles, a plant, a small dish, and interesting Fall objects like antlers and acorns.
My favourite way to hide essential items on a coffee table like TV remotes that don’t match your decor? This gorgeous wicker basket set with lids! They add a stunning texture to your Fall living room, and they’re a great way to hide anything you want out of sight.

Fall decorating on a budget FAQs
First, re-use what you have! Go through your storage of seasonal decor and think of how you can use it in new ways this year. Can you paint it or use it in a completely different spot to make it feel fresh? Then, consider places like Amazon, the thrift store or the dollar store to find new, budget-friendly seasonal decor. Paint it, sew on it, or re-think it to make it look like a high-end decor piece. You might be surprised with what you create on a budget!
For easy, budget-friendly seasonal decor I recommend choosing only 1 or 2 spots to focus on. For example, the front porch and the living room mantel are wonderful areas to decorate for the season. Leave the rest of your home neutral and fresh feeling, and the 1 or 2 spots your decorate will feel like seasonal focal points.
If you want to save money, buy Fall decor near the middle or end of the Autumn season when it goes on clearance. If you’re shopping at a discount store like the dollar store or thrift store, you’ll want to shop Fall home decor in August so that you don’t miss out on the good deals.
