Our 5 Favorite Ways to Decorate the Home for Fall

One of the best ways to ring in autumn is to update your décor to reflect the uniquely beautiful colors and mood of the season. Now that the shorter days and cooler temperatures of fall are upon us, we can use spicy aromas, earth-tone colors and autumn-themed decorations to celebrate the season to our heart’s content.

Here are a few easy, inexpensive decor ideas that will help your family make the most of fall this year:

Autumn wreaths: Decorate a store-bought wreath form with real or faux autumn leaves, pinecones, berries, cornhusks and dried flowers for a welcoming reminder of fall at your front door. If you’re feeling ambitious, hang series of wreaths on all your home’s front-facing windows as well as the door.

Fall foliage: For a unique and eye-catching autumn arrangement, arrange dried branches and leaves in a long wooden box or earth-toned vase. Try to balance bold shapes with feathery foliage, using contrasting colors and elements to make the piece come together.

Ornamental gourds: A wide variety of ornamental gourds can be found at farmers markets, garden centers and even grocery stores this time of year. Pick a few of your favorite shapes and colors and use them to line your porch or front steps. Large groupings of these gourds make for dramatic outdoor displays. Ornamental gourds also look beautiful indoors, so feel free to place them on bookshelves, countertops, tables and anywhere else you want an instant change for fall. 4306a2cdc7fa3a51f6f973b564d05c8b Source

Fall mason jars: Fill Mason jars with acorns, dried corn kernels or popcorn, dried beans or even candy corn, and top them with canning lids. Group these with fall floral arrangements and gourd displays for a unique rustic tableau.

Fall aromas: One of the best parts of the fall season is how it smells: spicy cinnamon and cloves, warm pumpkin and homey apple spice. Don’t be afraid to use plenty of fall-scented candles, potpourri and room sprays to complete your home’s autumnal makeover.
