Fall Upcycling Projects Perfect for Decorating on Any Budget

Gosh, I love fall. The crisp air, the warm days and cool nights, the leaves, oh this list goes on and on.

I think since most of my life revolved around a school year (both as a student and a teacher) the fall always feels like a new beginning to me.

It’s the perfect time to change up your decor, start something new, and just reenergize everything in and around you.

I’ve put together some of my favourite fall repurposing projects for you today. Don’t let September slip by without making something fun. It always makes you feel good.

All of these projects use something you may already have or you can easily find at the thrift store so no matter what your budget, you can add something new to your space.

To get the step-by-step directions for each project, just click on the title.

Enjoy and have fun!
