If you’re a festive person like me, and enjoy making your dorm room homey and decorated for the holidays throughout the year, here’s what you need to see…. Especially if you’re ballin’ on a budget as most of us college students are. Without having pumpkins rot and candy bowls scattered throughout the room, simple ways to decorate for the fall holidays are as follows.
Pro tip: you can never use too much twine for this season. It is a necessity to own twine during this time of year because of the unique touch it adds. Happy decorating!
1. Painted Pumpkins With Fall Messages

2. Candy (Corn) Jar
Supplies: paint, fall ribbon, flower pot from dollar store with plant saucer, and wooden knob.
3. Candy Corn Centerpiece

4. Thankful Jar
Supplies: jar, burlap or ribbon, and paint or permanent marker.
5. Leaf Canvas
Supplies: canvas (your choice of size), leaves (you’ll probably want fake so they last overtime), hot glue, and paint.
6. Fall Jars
Supplies: Jars (4), paint (can all be one color, or 4 different colors, but don’t forget the color for the lettering!), burlap, stencil letters, twine, and fake flowers or leaves to put in the jars.

8. “Give Thanks” Photo Frame
