Whether you start your fall decorating now or wait until the official start of the season, chances are you have given it some thought. If you are looking for some new ideas or just find the process daunting, I thought it might be helpful to share some of my fall decor favorites. I’ve put together a list of inspiring ideas, easy DIYs, and no-fuss ways to get your home ready for the season. Inspiration abounds!
If you want to read more about any of the fall decor projects below, they are all linked to blog posts with more information, photos, and inspiration. Be sure to click through to read more about any that inspire you.
Dress Up Your Front Porch
Adorn your door with a festive wreath, add some mums to your planters, and toss in a few pumpkins in varying shapes and colors for good measure. That’s all you need for instant autumnal curb appeal. See more HERE.
Make a Wreath with Foraged Finds
I used balls from my sweetgum tree, but you can use almost any foraged find to create a unique and rustic wreath that’s perfect for your home. If you want to dress it up, hand it with a colorful ribbon for a fun and vibrant touch! Get the tutorial HERE.
Set a Candlelight Outdoor Fall Table
I set up this magical table last fall on my deck, and it’s still one of my favorite fall projects. Savor those fall evenings with candlelight, a seasonal cocktail, a delicious dessert, and a few close friends. See more HERE.
Update Your Artwork with a Free Printable
Swap out your existing artwork in a fun and whimsical way with this free printable. This Hocus Pocus Broom Co. was a chalkboard design I created years ago. Last year I drew it again so that I could turn it into a free printable just for you! Get the printable HERE.
Add Cozy Touches to Your Living Room
While I love changing things up for the season, there’s no need to swap out your entire decor. Some chunky knit blankets and throw pillows in seasonal colors are all you need. See more of my living room HERE.
Drape Your Porch in Magical Lights
If you don’t have an outdoor space strung with lights, you’re totally missing out. It’s the quickest and easiest way to create an outdoor space that’s begging to be enjoyed. It’s especially magical and cozy during the fall season. (A few pumpkins help too!) See more of my porch HERE.
DIY This Colorful Wheat Decor
This might be my favorite fall project and it’s SO EASY. This colorfully wrapped wheat is an easy way to add beautiful and colorful detail to a rather basic decor item. I did this colorful version years ago. I loved this project so much that I repeated it last year with a more muted version. Use whatever colors suit your decor. Get the tutorial HERE.
Turn on Some Fall-Inspired Tunes to Set the Mood
You may not have thought about this, but for me, music is always a consideration when it comes to decorating. I like to engage all of the senses. Check out a playlist I specifically created for fall HERE. I also HIGHLY recommend my Ultimate Folk Playlist which is perfect for the season and contains over 8 hours of acoustic-inspired tunes everyone will love.
Craft Custom Napkins with Stamps
Feeling crafty? Dress up plain napkins with ink and stamps. I created some with leaves and pumpkins, but you can use any design you’d like. Match something to your decor or celebration. Get the tutorial HERE.
Style a Festive Feast for Friends to Enjoy
Clean off your kitchen island and style a delicious and beautiful feast fit for the Pumpkin King (or Queen)! This was a spread I created a few years ago in my apartment and I still love it to this day. And don’t miss my Everything Bagel Pumpkin Cheeseball. It is still one of the most viewed recipes on my blog during the fall season. See more of this festive display HERE.
Create a Festive Banner with Tags
Typically, word decor isn’t my cup of tea. However, I think it can be such a fun and graphic touch for events, parties, and entertaining. Using sticker alphabet letters you can spell out your favorite greeting of the season. Get the tutorial HERE.
Turn Acorn Squash into Jumbo Acorns
Want one more DIY? Turn acorn squash into jumbo acorns. The project is so easy and the results are adorable. Plus, since squash tends to last a while, once you’re done with them as decor, slice them open and roast them in the oven for a delicious side dish! Get the tutorial HERE.
Add Simple Seasonal Touches to Your Kitchen
Keep it simple but seasonal. A few little touches (including some homemade apple desserts and pumpkin sweets) will instantly have your kitchen feeling ready for the season. In my kitchen, I like to have a seasonal candle, fresh autumnal flowers, pumpkins, and a few decorative items to complete the look. See more of my fall kitchen HERE.
