15 DIY Fall Decor Ideas from Dollar Tree Items

Fall is such a great time to add seasonal decor to your home. Every year I try to add a few pieces, but a detective’s salary doesn’t lend much to the home decor budget. I love creating my own pieces using dollar store items that I upgrade to look like they cost a lot more than they did. I’ve searched the internet and found 15 dollar store DIY ideas to add a little flair to your home this fall. Click the pictures to see the tutorial & the links to go to the authors home page.
