Decorative Autumn Sentiments Signs

Price: $1.25 each

“There are a few different varieties of these signs but every one is $1.25 each,” said consumer analyst Julie Ramhold with DealNews. “They’re definitely small, measuring just 11″ by 11,” but similar items elsewhere will likely cost upwards of $10 to $15.”

Harvest-Themed Leaner Signs

Price: $5 each

“These are $5 each and measure 48″ so they’re perfect for porches and entryways,” said Ramhold. “Shopping at other stores, these kinds of decor are easily closer to $15 at least, and I saw more that were around $20-$30 at some retailers, including craft stores and even discounted home stores.”

Pumpkin-Shaped 3D Metal Wreath Forms

Price: $1.25 each

These 13-inch x17.625-inch pumpkin-shaped metal wreath forms are perfect to make fall-themed wreaths. You might be able to pick up inexpensive ribbon, flowers, burlap and more at Dollar Tree to create your own one-of-a-kind wreath or view some online tutorials from experienced crafters to provide inspiration. 

These pumpkin-shaped metal wreath forms come in a 2-pack on Amazon for much more — $11.48 — which is over $5.50 each.

Harvest-Themed Door Mats

Price: $5 each

Welcome guests to home in style this fall season with a harvest-themed door mat from Dollar Tree. You can choose from mats with sunflowers, leaves, pumpkins or dogs in fall attire and appropriate wording, such as “Hello, Pumpkin” and “Nuts About Fall.”

Shop for fall-themed door mats at big-box stores like Target and you’ll pay $25 to $30 each. Target’s mats might be sturdier, but these are seasonal mats — not an item you’ll use year-round. And at Dollar Tree’s prices, you can afford to buy two or three mats and still come out ahead.

For example, you can find a Luminessence apple-cinnamon scented candle at Dollar Tree for $1.25, while the same candle sells for over $5 on Amazon.”

Royal Norfolk Fall Leaves Ceramic Plates, 10.5-inch

Price: $1.25 each

If your goal is to create a fall-themed dinner table for holiday celebrations this season, Dollar Tree can help you do it for much less with these plates.

“They’re $1.25 each, so you easily pick up whatever number you need without buying a whole set or breaking the bank,” Ramhold said. “Similar designs cost as much as $51 for a set of 4 plates — that works out to $12.75 per plate, so Dollar Tree is a truly unbeatable value.”

Royal Norfolk Fall Leaves Ceramic Mugs, 12-oz.

Price: $1.25 each

After-dinner coffee, hot apple cider or hot chocolate topped with marshmallows will become more festive when served in these vibrant fall mugs. 

“A 12-oz mug that matches the above plates is also $1.25 each, so you can create a matching look for less,” said Ramhold. “A 16-piece set of a similar design will cost you around $110 elsewhere, but for about $20 you can  build your own at Dollar Tree, and even mix and match fall designs if you want.”

Not only are they plush, but they also come in four other colors besides the traditional pumpkin hue. Choose from gray, light blue, dark blue or pink. These could also make great decorations for offices and schools — or serve as part of a fall-themed gift for a teacher.
