Fall Home Decor Ideas

School is now in full swing and we’ve gotten back into our much needed routine around here. It’s hard to believe summer has come and gone already but we’re ready to welcome Fall.

Today we’d like to take you on a Fall Home Tour with 10 simple ideas you can use in your own home this Fall!

What says “welcome fall” more than this darling hanging craft on the door?  This is made from scrap wood, paint, ribbon and a broken tree branch.  Simply glue a stem on top and use paint or vinyl for the “hello fall” words.  Drill holes to thread a wide ribbon through, tie knots and its ready to hang.

Fall Home Decor For The Front Porch

Next we have an old cabinet door turned chalkboard (using chalkboard paint) with a little saying to invite Fall.

This corner of the front porch looks cozy with a fall colored blanket resting on the chair with a bundle of cattails tied with jute and a large pot of beautiful flowering mums.

The porch is darling and very inviting and screams to welcome Fall with these bold colors.  

DIY Papermache Pumpkins

These darling pumpkins are another simple craft. Using an old papermâché pumpkin, or even one of those plastic pumpkins for Trick-or-Treating, you can make this darling craft in an afternoon. 

Using an old piece of sheet music or using another patterned paper of your choice, rip several pieces. You’ll then paint decoupage medium on the backside of the paper and apply it to the pumpkin. Continue until the entire pumpkin has been covered.

To ensure all of the paper edges stay adhered at this point, you may give the entire surface of the pumpkin a layer of decoupage. This will seal all of the paper down and it will be a nice sturdy craft for years to come. 

This technique can also be used on smaller pumpkins. They look adorable on a candlestick!

Fall Home Decor Using Natural Elements

Adorning your coffee table with a tray full of fall items is another way to arrange fall home decor. 

Add some old books, and candlesticks or any other every day items as building blocks to your tray. Then add a few other touches of fall.

Here we have some fall flowers, an antler, pumpkins, a heavenly fall scented candle and last but not least these darling acorns.

Seriously, look how adorable these acorns are!

Last week my Mom and I had a craft day and created 3 different styles of acorns (Farmhouse, Boho and Chic) using items we had lying around the house. 

Be sure to head to the tutorial so you can make these and include them in your fall home decor this year!

Styling A Tiered Tray

We love using tiered trays to organize smaller home decor items!

Using a tray to arrange smaller items helps to create a neat and visually aesthetic centerpiece for a coffee table, a lovely addition to a countertop or sofa table…you get the idea.

Awe, here we are with our second style of acorn.

This Boho acorn was so much fun to make!! (It was also the fastest and easiest acorn of the 3)

The fringe adds a touch of sass! It’s so fun and unique!  Make sure to head to the tutorial so you know how to make these for your home!

Fall Home Decor | Incorporating Thrifted Items

If you’ve learned anything about us during our blogging journey, you know that we both love to use vintage and secondhand items in our decor. 

I’m completely smitten with this driftwood wreath I snagged earlier this spring at the Vintage Market Days! 

It’s the perfect element of outdoor, natural wood. 

Another fantastic find from another trip to a vintage market a couple weeks ago is this darling display of stacked pumpkins!  These were created using fabric, batting, jute and a bit of imagination.  I saw this from across the room and knew I had to have it! 😂

Styling With Fresh Greenery

Fall Home Decor

This time of year offers so many options for fresh grasses, cattail and fall flowers! 

We took a drive around town last week and found a bunch of cattails and sunflowers along the side of the road. 

We also clipped fresh hydrangeas (from my yard…no we didn’t steal flowers from another yard) 

Such a simple and FREE way to add a bit of fall foliage and color to your fall home decor, and it’s simply beautiful!

For the last of our DIY acorns, we created this Chic look. Remember to head to the tutorial to see how we made these 3 different styles.

Coffee Table Styling

Another way to adorn your coffee table is to group all the fall home decor items together with a table runner.

Don’t have a table runner? Try using dining place-mats to create a runner like we did here.

The runner ties all the fall home decor items together which helps the display feel unified.

With so much talk of our DIY acorns, we had to sprinkle a handful of real acorns in this tray. The texture and differing sizes were too beautiful to exclude from our fall home decor. 

And of course I had to try my hand at my own DIY fabric pumpkin.  (I actually used an old sweater, I love the ribbed texture and dimension it adds to the pumpkin.)

We hope you were inspired with many simple, inexpensive and FREE ways to bring a little fall decor into your home this season.
