You can add virtually anything to a tiered tray, but this example is particularly quaint. It creatively displays mini signs, faux plants, copper mule mugs and fresh apples. And don’t forget the jar of marshmallows, perfect for S’mores season!
#3. Cute Customizable Sign
What’s the best fall decor item that can be used year-round? Customizable letter boards! From Halloween to Christmas, a high quality letter board can be reused hundreds of times to display all your favorite festive quotes.
Beauty For Ashes used this gorgeous wooden letter board to showcase a clever message for apple-picking season. Letter boards are also a fun way for kids to use their imagination and see their own ideas displayed on the wall or countertop.
#4. DIY Succulent Pumpkins
Another trending fall centerpiece idea is DIY succulent pumpkins. These gorgeous pumpkins are a fresh take on modern Halloween decor, and will fit in flawlessly with any kitchen design. Not only are they adorable, they are inexpensive and don’t require any glue! You can find the instructions for how to create these cute succulent pumpkins at Sand & Sisal.

First, look for a fall-themed sign (or multiple) that is the right size for the area in mind. Next, add some painted pumpkins of varying sizes and colors. Last, finish up the design with a few vintage or antique decor items like vases, jars, or metal tins.
To save money on fall cabinet decorations, try browsing your local thrift stores. You never know what gorgeous rustic dishware you might find!
