With the season of crisp air and early nightfall upon us, the tendency to hunker down grows stronger by the day. And, no surprise, we're all about hunkering down over here. Fortunately, Target's fall home collection is brimming with stylish seasonal delights that'll give your home all the warm and cozy feels — from leafy wreaths and warm wood accents to velvety pillows and shaggy throws — and with prices that won't shatter your pumpkin spice latte budget. Here we're sharing some easy styling tips using Target items that will transform your space into a cozy autumnal abode. So grab your PSL and welcome sweater season. It's fall, y'all.

1. Layer cozy textiles together.

Blankets and pillows go a long way in upping the cozy factor in your space. Consider mixing a modern abstract print with a more traditional texture like faux fur. A pop of luxe pink velvet paired with a chunky knit sweater blanket strikes a modern balance.

2. Display fall florals.

Try a minimalist approach to fall florals with a simple display of long-stemmed wheat in a clear glass belly vase. We bet it would look equally stunning on a table as it does on the floor.

3. Warm up with wood accents.

Whether on an entry table, mantel, or bookshelf, the warm tones of these sculptural wood vases spice up any vignette with major fall vibes. They even have a glass insert so you can display fresh florals. For a moody twist, try styling them with an unexpected yet totally autumnal element like feathers housed in a brass float frame.

4. Create mood lighting.

Nothing gives you fall feels faster than the flicker of firelight. These taper candle holders are genius because they come with a knob so you can adjust the height, and the black and gold finish is so sleek. They'll easily transition over to the winter holidays, too.

5. Bring the outdoors in.

Wreaths are a lovely gesture to greet your guests at the door, but hanging one in your dining nook ensures that you get to appreciate autumn's splendor on the daily. The golden blooms and rustic twigs in this faux floral wreath look as though they were foraged from a leisurely stroll.

Speaking of splendor, this footed wood bowl makes the perfect vessel to display fall's bounty. We've got apple picking high up on our bucket list this season just for this reason (okay, maybe for the apple cider donuts, too).

6. Put a pumpkin on it.

Nothing says fall is here more than a pumpkin. It is the jewel of the season. If orange isn't your new black, try incorporating a few neutral-toned pumpkins into your decor. We autumn-ed up our shelving with a trio of gray and white beauties. While these specific pumpkins aren't available online (we snagged them in the dollar section at Target, huzzah!), there are many other options available.

You can check fall decorating off your list because it's just that easy. The best part about each of these items? Nothing costs over $40. Now, who's ready for a Target run?
