Autumn is officially here. With Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, the fall season is a great time to get your home all spruced up. Here are a few festive fall decorating ideas.
Wreath: These aren’t just for Christmas decorating. There are many different fall style wreaths using those famous fall colors: oranges, red, yellows and browns. Look at craft stores, such as Michael’s, for fall wreaths and other artificial fall decor.
Pumpkin Candle Holder: Carve a small hole (about an inch deep) into a small pumpkin, and place a beige or brown candle inside. Bring the smells of fall (pumpkin spice, cinnamon, maple, etc) into the room while also adding accent decor.
Pumpkin Vase: Pumpkins can also be used as vases. Carve a larger hole at the top and place real or artificial flowers inside. Some good fall flowers are sunflowers, mums, orange gerber daisies and callalilies.
Fall Wall Art: Another great way to get your home ready for fall is by changing/adding some of your wall art. Choose fall-colored paintings or photographs to emanate the feelings of fall.
Branches: For a no-cost decoration, pick some branches and twigs from your backyard and place on a fireplace mantel, bookshelf or in a vase. Acorns and berries can also be added to these arrangements.
