Looking for cheap DIY outdoor fall decor? Here are some of the best ideas the internet has to offer!
Cheap (but still cute) DIY Outdoor Fall Decor
With the turning of the leaves and the crisp air (in cities that aren’t mine lolz), now is the perfect time to spruce up your outdoor space with some festive fall decor.
And there’s no need to break the bank. You know ya girl doesn’t like spending money. With a little creativity, you can easily create your own DIY fall decorations on a budget.
Here are a few of my favorites!
Fall is a great time to show your creative side and make your own decorations for outdoors.
One of the least expensive ways to do this is to create a fall wreath for your front door. And the best part is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to do it! Win win!
Here are some cheap DIY fall wreath ideas that will add a touch of seasonal flair to your home:
Wooden ball and floral wreath
You can always count on Kelli and Kristi from Lolly Jane Blog to have the cutest DIY ideas that are always loose on the purse strings.
This is such a cute and simple project and can last for years to come!
(They also have ones for each seasons within that post, so make sure to check those out too!)
When I think about pinecone wreaths, for some reason my mind automatically goes the short and chubby pinecones that you put peanut butter on for a craft as a kid.
But I love this spin on a pinecone wreath with the longer and more slim pinecones.
Bonus is that this one is made without wire or glue! Which means no burnt off fingertips – yahoo!
I appreciate Emily’s take on this fall ribbon wreath because I’ve never been able to do the mesh ribbon wreath things that look all fluffy and whatnot.
But this feels more doable and I like the style of it a lot better.
Dried Hydrangea Wreath
I have a soft spot in my heart for hydrangeas because it’s the flowers we had in our wedding 10 years ago.
10 years. Holy crapola. That feels so wild to say. We have lived a LOT of life in 10 years.
But yeah, the DIY dried hydrangea wreath. Love it.
Knitting wool wreath
I promise this post won’t be all wreaths, but if you’re looking for ideas for DIY fall decor that’s also cheap, the quickest way to accomplish that is a wreath!
I LOVE this one so much! It’s fluffy, fall colored, and really easy to make. All things for a great DIY recipe for me.
Outdoor Table Decor
After redoing our kitchen and after Jordan fell through our back deck, I think it’s safe to say that she needs a makeover.
Which means I’m going to make it possible for us to have an outdoor table some day and I’m loving the idea for something like this for a very simple DIY centerpiece!
Screened In Porch Vibes
Again, if you’re going for cheap fall decor, especially when it comes to outdoor decor, use the gorgeous fall foliage and the plants that are already outside as your decor!
Grab a bunch and stick them in a vase and have it right next to your cozy reading spot outside on your screened in back porch!
Front Porch Things
To be fair to myself, I have a whole separate post about really cute small front porch decorating ideas for fall.
But I like this idea because if you pay attention, all this is is mums and pumpkins.
Mums and punkins, punkins and mums. I feel like that needs to be on a shirt somewhere.
But again, my point is it’s CHEAP! These are things you can pick up in a grocery store too so they’re readily available.
If you’re like me and don’t love the blacks and oranges and the bolder fall decor, you can take a page out of the Lolly Jane Blog book and get muted colors for pumpkins.
This would be a great option for some old ugly Dollar Tree pumpkins is to spray paint them in the colors of your choice to fit your aesthetic.
Even with a larger front porch, these decorations can be very inexpensive, especially the leaf garlands.
These would be super easy to DIY by taking some fishing wire on a needle and putting it through leaves after you rake them up.

Instead of using leaves or other fall florals for a garland, maybe try a more whimsical approach by using felt pom balls!
I LOVE a good pom garland and if you’re NOT wanting to DIY one, you can always hit up my girl Erika at her shop to get one for your needs!
Psst. She has Harry Potter themed ones!!!
You could stick with the typical “Happy Fall Y’all” vertical sign that everyone else is doing, or instead you could do something more fun like this!
This is still a super budget friendly DIY fall project for your outdoor decor.
Okay go with me here – if you use Scotchguard or outdoor friendly fabric, how CUTE would these be either on an outdoor porch swing or even several of them in a big bowl by your front door?
If you’re a little more on the handy side and have access to some beginner power tools, these yard pumpkins are SO fun!
You can make them as big or as small as you would like, but regardless, they’re a great DIY option for some cheapola fall decor, pending wood prices aren’t insanely expensive.
Hopefully this has your wheels turning a bit and you can get some ideas and inspiration for your own DIY outdoor fall decor!
