Autumn leaves, pumpkins, pumpkin spice latte, hot chocolate. Everything about fall is warm, comforting, and inviting. And so should be your home decorating.
Reds, oranges, and earth tones are the focus for home decorating in fall. These 10 fall decorating tips will make your home look and feel as cozy as possible.
1 Fall Candles
Candles are a favorite home decor item in fall. Scents like vanilla, cinnamon, jasmine, lavender and sandalwood are all soothing and make any home more inviting. Create DIY floating candles to give your room an exclusive style and scent. See our selection of candleholders.
2 Fall Fabric Pumpkins
Make pretty fall fabric pumpkins using the old fabric in your home. Create as many of these decorations as you need and gather them around your fall vignettes.
3. Fall Pillows and Covers
Warm-up your throw pillows for fall with a no-sew treatment. Make pillow wraps to go around your existing pillows to give your living room a refresh.
Or use a large fabric around your larger pillows to give them a little extra style. Lay a large piece of fall hued fabric on a flat surface. Now lay your pillow over the material on the diagonal. Then wrap the fabric around the pillow the way you wrap a present and tuck extra fabric if necessary. Simple.

4. Use Branches in Fall Decorating
Gather curling, gnarled, and other colorful and interesting branches from your yard (but wash them off before you bring them inside to get rid of spiders and other critters hiding on them). Hang the branches over headboards and mantels to give your home decorating a rustic fall look. Hang smaller branches over bathroom mirrors and closet doors.
5. Fall Throw Blankets
Casually toss a throw blanket over a comfy chair for a warm look. Stack your favorite books near the chair, but leave a space for your fall hot cocoa. Choose purple, pink, or earth tone throw pillows for an accent.
6. Buckets for Fall Decorating
Use clean, new buckets lined with fabric and fill them with fruits such as apples, pumpkins, and pears (fresh fruit looks (and smells) best but artificial fruit is okay too). Paint the buckets in fall colors to make them match your room's decor.
7. Make a Wheat Bouquet
If you live in a rural area, you may be able to borrow something from your local farmer for decorating: wheat. Add wheat into your fall flower arrangements for unique texture. Place the bouquet in the kitchen, on dining tables and side tables to brighten any room.
8. Potted Plants
Potted fall chrysanthemums are a must for home decorating near entryways. Choose from yellow, red, orange, white, pink, purple, and other colors. Potted chrysanthemums bring warm hues to the outside of your home when the garden is becoming a bit drab as flowers and perennials die back.
9. Hang Baskets and Accessories on the Front Door
Woven baskets and accessories lend an exceptional style to your home. Hang your woven scarves, hats, and baskets by your front door. It's not only convenient but reminds you that fall is here.
Fall is the time to set a new style for your home decorating before winter chill sets in!
