Decor to Fall in love with

 

October 2011 |

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.
