Welcome Fall into Your Home with Goodwill Finds

Now that fall is finally here, it’s natural to feel the desire to spice up your living space to celebrate the season!

Luckily, there’s no need to spend a bundle to make your home cozy and inviting this autumn. It’s easy to score festive fall decorations for less when you shop at your local Ohio Valley Goodwill store!

Welcome fall into your home with these Goodwill finds:

#1: DIY wreath

Nothing says “welcome” better than a pretty wreath adorning your front door! Search your local Goodwill store for styrofoam wreath forms or a wreath you could repurpose. Decorate the wreath by gluing on faux fall leaves or wrapping it with a pre-loved knit sweater from Goodwill. Add a plaid or burlap ribbon to the top so you can hang up your wreath. Now you have a delightful door decoration to greet anyone who comes to visit!

#2: Wooden bowls and trays

Rustic wooden bowls and trays are perfect for fall gatherings with family and friends. You can use them to showcase decorations like mini pumpkins and gourds, acorns, cinnamon sticks, and pinecones for a nature-inspired fall centerpiece. Another idea is to create a self-serve Halloween candy display complete with candy corn, fun-sized chocolates, and other fall treats! No matter what type of centerpiece you want to create, Goodwill has a great selection of serveware for all occasions, all at affordable prices.

#3: Fall florals

Check your local Goodwill store for faux fall flowers such as sunflowers, mums, and thistle. Add some dried straw or wheat to your arrangement and place in a vase or oversized glass jar — you can find those at Goodwill, too! Your home will instantly feel more fall-like when it’s filled with the amazing colors of the season.

When the weather outside is crisp and cool, it’s a good time to embrace fall comforts and create a cozy “nest” at home.

#5: Warm lighting

As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, we’re all craving a little extra light. Add a warm glow to your living space with string lights, reading lamps, and candles from Goodwill!
