Buffalo Plaid decor makes your home look festive all fall! I’ll show you how to DIY door decor for crazy cheap. Your neighbors will be jealous…

I'll teach you how to make beautiful fall door decor for just a few dollars.

I’ve long admired the bold checks of the black and white craze. Scared away by the price, I’ve talked myself out of buying the adorable decor more than once.

But this fall, I decided to take a trip to Dollar Tree for crazy cheap items, and repurpose some things I already own.

If you’re ready to freshen up your front door (and make the neighbors jealous), follow along!

I know you can do this…

Start With These Items:

Buffalo Plaid Pumpkins

Begin this project by creating two buffalo plaid pumpkins. Two of my pumpkins had silk leaves decorating their tops. I removed the silk, and covered these two foam pumpkins with checked ribbon.

First, remove the wire from ribbon and cut in 1.5 in strips. Using craft or hot glue, attach strips of ribbon to two of the foam pumpkins, leaving the excess ribbon at the top of the pumpkin.

Next, make a “stem” by gathering the fringe at the top of your ribbon-covered pumpkin and twist it off with the wire you removed from the ribbon edges.

Make sure to remove the wire from your ribbon before gluing to pumpkins.

Painting Greenery

Chances are, you have some silk greenery languishing in your attic or basement. A light spray of white or cream paint will give it new life for this project.

Chalk Board Sign

This 6×8 inch chalkboard was easily transformed into a cute sign by using stencils for the top letters and printing out the word “Fall” and tracing with graphite paper.

If you’ve ever been in awe of the gorgeous printing on signs, you need to invest in graphite paper! It’s very inexpensive and gives you the freedom to reproduce anything you can make on your laptop.

For the word “Fall”, I used Edwardian Script ITC font in 350 point type.

My Final Cost

Since I repurposed many of the items, I only ended up paying for: foam block, pumpkins, chalk board, and ribbon,

The Buffalo Plaid ribbon was my biggest splurge, but I found it at Hobby Lobby for 40% off, just $6.00 for a large spool.

TOTAL: $14.00
