Decorating can cost a pretty penny, but thankfully, it doesn’t have to. Pinterest is chock-full of decor DIYs you can tackle this month—and many of them are genuinely cute (read: not tacky). Because the last thing you want is to fill your home with a bunch of arts and crafts you don’t feel awesome about. (At that point, it’d almost be more worth it to shell out the extra bucks and save yourself the trouble.)

Now, if you think the genuinely cute Pinterest decor on offer is all pumpkin-spiced and cinnamon-covered, you’ve got another thing coming. Because while that is definitely on the menu (how could it not be?!), Pinterest has tons of other options for the host who prefers something sleek and modern—or kitschy and artistic.
