5 Easy Fall Decorating Ideas

5 Easy Fall Decorating Ideas

Fall is in the air, and it's time to make sure your home decor fits the season. Decorating for fall does not have to take a whole weekend or require you to take a day off from work. Here are five easy fall decorating ideas that will have your home feeling cozy in no time.

 

Display some silk leaves.

You can find silk autumn-colored leaves at most craft stores, and they look remarkably similar to the real thing. Lay a few out on your bookshelves and on the coffee table to add little touches of fall to the space. You can even fill a clear glass bowl with some silk autumn leaves, add a candle to the center, and use it as a centerpiece.

Get out the pumpkins.

Pumpkins are not just for Halloween. When they're whole and not carved, they make for easy fall decor. Set one on the mantel, perhaps next to a few more colorful gourds, or display three of four pumpkins of various sizes on your dresser to bring a touch of fall to your bedroom.

Create a fall wreath.

If you feel like being crafty, purchase a plain wicker or straw wreath from your local craft supply store. Also find a few fall-themed silk flowers, like mums, and a couple of silk leaves. Attach these decorations to the wreath with hot glue, and finish it off with an orange or dark yellow ribbon, tied in a bow. Hang the wreath on your front door for all to see.


Fill Mason jars with fall items.

Find some old Mason jars and fill them with various fall-related items like leaves, tiny gourds, dry twigs, and even a few colorful pebbles. Tie a fall-colored plaid ribbon around the rim of the jar and secure it with some glue. These look lovely on a nightstand, mantel, or kitchen table.


Paint wooden planks.

All you need for this cute decoration is an old piece or weathered wood, some black acrylic paint, and a paint brush. Paint a simple fall emblem, like a leaf or the antlers of a deer, onto the wooden plank. Let it dry, and then display it on a shelf.
