Fall is an amazing time of year. In most parts of the country, it is when the weather finally begins to cool off. With this cooling-off comes the season that many say is their favorite: fall! An older, 2005, survey found that 27% of people say fall is their favorite season. Spring slightly edged out fall as the most favorite season. But, with the rise of pumpkin spice everything in the last few, we think fall probably has the advantage today.
There are so many activities to enjoy in the fall. Not the least of these is the decorating you can do. Fall is the time to get creative and crafty with your DIY décor. In the rest of this article, you will find all the ways that you can bring fall into your home this season.
Best Fall Decor Ideas
“Pumpkin spice and everything nice.” That’s how the saying goes. And, it is true. Pumpkin spice is amazing. But, unfortunately, you cannot decorate your own only in pumpkin spice. A little variation goes a long way in decorating. Although we definitely recommend a little pumpkin here and there. It is fall after all!
Here are ten more ways to bring fall into your home today.
We cannot begin a list like this without mentioning pumpkins. Pumpkin spice will appear later on this list again. It’s that good. But, here we will be talking about pumpkins.
Pumpkins come in many shapes and sizes. There are even a lot of colors to choose from. You can find the typical orange pumpkins, but also dark brown and white pumpkins. Everyone recognizes carved pumpkins for Halloween. But, mini pumpkins or small pie pumpkins are another great décor addition.
You don’t have to only carve your pumpkins. Why not get a bunch of mini pumpkins and arrange them into a table centerpiece or put them in a bowl? A few small pie pumpkins and gourds make a great fall decoration next to a door. You may also want to consider a fall mantle over your fireplace that incorporates mini pumpkins, acorns, sticks, and berries.
Pumpkins are so versatile that the sky is really the limit. You can even eat pie pumpkins, just don’t let them get soft before eating them.
2) Fall-themed accents.
An accent can be anything that rounds out a room’s décor. Great accent pieces include throw rugs, blankets, and pillows. You can even count table runners and knick-knacks as accents. A few fall-themed accents are a perfect way to bring fall into your home.
For rugs, blankets, and pillows, you may choose a classic pumpkin or apple theme. You could also go for Halloween accents; however, they will be out-of-style long before fall is over. Using solid color accents in warm, fall colors is also a great way to celebrate the season. Find a design that speaks fall to you and compliments the current décor of your room. You want the accents to fit into your current style, not cause you to redecorate everything.
3) Hang a fall wreath.
Wreaths are not just for Christmas. You can decorate a door or wall with a wreath anytime. Fall wreaths are really the best. There are so many ways to make a great looking wreath. Yes, you can buy your own fall wreath, but DIY wreaths are so much more fun!
Some great choices for a fall wreath include
- Orange, brown, or beige ribbon,
- Apples (real or wax): If you choose real apples, just make sure to remove them before they rot.
- Sticks or twine
- Pumpkins or pumpkin-shaped extras.
The best fall wreath will incorporate two or more of the items listed above. We always recommend putting flowers in your wreath. Choose one or more of the all-time favorite fall flowers. They will immediately bring a feeling of fall into your home. In all, this fall project will increase your love of the season and will be just plain fun.
4) Use fall-scented candles or create your own simmer pot.
Fall scents are the best. Cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, vanilla, and orange are all popular scents during autumn. And don’t get us started about the pumpkin spice.
Side note: Pumpkin spice actually does not include pumpkin at all. It is a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. These are the seasonings that go in a traditional pumpkin pie. Hence the original name “pumpkin pie spice.”
Whether you are a pumpkin spice lover, or the fall scent of stewed apples sets your heart racing, it doesn’t matter. Use the fall scents you love to get in the mood this season. You can find a number of different fall-scented candles, or you could create a simmer pot (spices and fruit simmered in water) to incorporate scent into your home’s fall décor.
5) Bring nature into your home.
Bringing nature into your home has been shown to reduce anxiety and stress and increase happiness. Those are things we all need right now.
While you can bring nature into your home at any season, it is especially important during the fall. Much of nature may be dying during fall and preparing for the winter, but it can still be a great decoration for your home.
Sticks, pine cones, evergreen leaves, and changing leaves are all bits of nature that can be used as decoration around your home. You can even write up a scavenger hunt to find the items you need for decorating. If you have kids, this can be a great and educational task for the whole family.
Another way to bring nature into your home this fall season is to order a fall bouquet from BloomsyBox. We have the best arrangements of fall flowers that you will be able to find. Try our Sunny, Fall Sunset, Honey Blush, and Overjoyed arrangements this fall season. Our fall flowers are a great way to add color to your fall décor and increase your happiness. It’s a win-win!
6) Fall art.
Fall art projects and purchased fall art are great elements to incorporate into your fall décor. Fall art can be as simple as a chalkboard with a drawing of a pumpkin or an elaborate painting of a fall scene. A board of fall sayings that can be hung around your home is another very popular option.
Depending on your preferences and budget, there is a lot of fall art for you to bring out during the season. A correctly placed piece of art can bring a room together. It is also a great way to draw the eye. Now is a great time for putting fall-themed art on your walls and changing the mood of your home.
7) Use burlap.
There are a lot of fall projects that you can craft with burlap. Burlap is associated with life in the country. For a season that celebrates the harvest, rustic fabrics are the key. And no fabric is more rustic than burlap.
Burlap is also very versatile. You do not just need to use it to store vegetables. Burlap can be crafted into
- Objects, like pumpkins
- Sewn on to make pictures or signs.
- Made into wreaths or pillows. We do not recommend using burlap for a blanket though. It will be too scratchy.
- Cut into a banner.
- Made into a centerpiece or treat bags for Halloween.
8) Incorporate warm colors into your décor.
A fall color palette is warm. It will be oriented towards the reds and oranges of the color wheel. Rich colors are also preferred. So, deep yellow, emerald green, bright orange, deep brown, and burgundy are all popular fall colors. Nature turns these colors as it prepares for winter. Therefore bringing them into your home is like bringing a little bit of nature in as well.
You can use fall colors anywhere. You may not want to repaint your entire home just for the season. You can, however, purchase drapes, pillows, blankets, and other accessories in these colors.
Use other decorations with fall colors to draw the room together. This is why artwork is so powerful. The art you put up should incorporate the colors of the accents in each room. That ensures that the overall theme and décor flows well together.
9) Sounds appropriate for fall.
Fall décor is not just about the eye. You want your other senses to be involved as well. That is why fall scents like pumpkin spice and apple are so popular. But don’t stop at scents. You should involve your ears as well.
What are fall sounds? There are many. You could play ambient music that incorporates crunching leaves or gentle rain. Many ambient music sites also show fall images as the music plays. For dinner parties or a relaxing atmosphere, try setting the mood with some fall sounds.
10) Fall Flowers
Fall flowers come in all shapes and sizes. Any flower that comes in a fall color could be considered a fall flower. For example, deep red, orange, or yellow roses all work wonderfully in a fall bouquet.
The rose is a very versatile flower. Some flowers are more associated with fall than others, though. These include the mum, gerbera daisies, sunflower, goldenrod, aster, pansy, and dahlias.
Not only do the flowers listed here come in fall colors, but they also bloom in the fall. Black dahlias are also associated with Halloween, one of the most popular fall holidays. Sunflowers may seem like a strange choice, but they too are a fall flower. There is a reason you see them in many Thanksgiving decorations.
There are many ways you can use fall flowers. Put them in a wreath. Use a large bouquet as a table centerpiece. Place them in your kitchen for a sweet-smelling treat. Fall flowers also make a great gift. Why not give a friend or loved one a great fall-themed arrangement by BloomsyBox? You will be helping them bring fall into their home just as you are bringing it into your own.
