With its colorful nature, cozy atmosphere and feel-good weather, there’s no wonder why we love fall. Get into your autumn spirit even more with these fall decorating ideas.
An Autumn Welcome From Your Door
Let your door be the first to say “happy fall!” And what better way to say this than with an arrangement of pumpkins, gourds, potted Croton and mums? This is a weekend activity that the whole family can enjoy, so have fun while creating your home's best autumn welcome.
Let it Fall
Ever find yourself sitting at a dinner table but couldn’t talk to the person across from you because that annoying, large centerpiece was in the way? Well, worry no more. Leaf streamers make the perfect attraction to any Thanksgiving table while still creating visibility between guests. Create your own and add some fall decor to your dinner set-up.
Who knew that wood could look this good? This decorative firewood adds a sense of outdoor nature to your home. But make sure you don’t bring all of what’s out there in. To prevent carrying spider or insects inside, remember to take off any leaves or twigs. Also, shake off those cut branches while you’re at it so that you can maximize the full enjoyment of your wood wall.
Just a Sprinkle
Let’s face it, bookshelves are items that commonly get abandoned in most homes and eventually, become cluttered and dusty. But why let them collect dust when they can collect fall style? Give your shelves a quick spruce-up this autumn with vibrant, sprinkled leaves. These can be gathered from your own backyard, or you can get the silky variety from your local crafts store.
Glow of Pumpkin
There’s no doubt that these unique candles will bring delight. Simply, fill your candle holder/glass hurricane with your choice of acorns, coffee beans or candy corn. Then, place your pumpkin-shaped candle inside. What a fun and crafty way to light up your yard, right? Remember that you should keep a close look on your candle burners to make sure the wick doesn’t burn below the filler level.
Craft up Your Mantel
With just paint, paper and glue you can create the ultimate autumn mantel. Brighten up yours with a collection of kicky lanterns and decoupage pumpkins. You can even make this centerpiece yourself by pasting glued card stock leaves onto branches. These mantel decorations are proof that not all beautiful things have to cost an arm and a leg; most can be made in your own very hands.
Wall of Fall
Hang your best autumn moments on the wall. Although this season only lasts but for a short time, the memories that come from it don’t have to. Make them last forever with your wall of fall.
