Fall decoration ideas!

My best friend gave me a bug... Not the flu kind, but it's extremely contagious! She gave me the fall decorations bug. WARNING: it will make you want to bust out the totes of decorations, including autumn leaves, garlands, raffia and acorns. This bug will not make you turn green, but instead you will turn various shades of reds, oranges, yellows and browns! Hopefully these ideas will help you prepare for "Fall Season" instead of Flu Season!


It may be too early to get pumpkins at the Farmer's Market, but we all know a very classic decoration for fall is pumpkins. Gourds are very popular too. However, Michaels or Hobby Lobby can help you out tremendously! They have craft pumpkins! They look just like real pumpkins but they gloriously don't rot or smell by the end of the season. You can carve them, paint them, or just enjoy them! I got lucky and stocked up on mine last year after Thanksgiving and got them all half off. They can be pretty pricey if you are stocking up. But pretty pricey in my book is $5-10 a pumpkin. A hot trend this year is painting your pumpkins in a metallic color. Look at these fabulous silver ones!

And you can even mix them with other painted pumpkins or pumpkins decorated with ribbons! You can make a cute arrangement of pumpkins on candlesticks of various heights.

This wreath is made out of a grapevine wreath with gourds and a bow. You could even paint them if you would like them a different color to match your house.


I inherited my love of candles from my mother, but they are easy, inexpensive and fabulous decoration! You can never go wrong with candles. However, I know some of you have children that you wouldn't want to get their little hands on them, so just remember instead of doing without, just put them out of reach. Mantles, shelves, or taller tables. And when in doubt, decorate the hurricane and put the candles inside it. It's good flame prevention.

Simply filling a glass candle holder with loose leaves and nuts or pine cones gives it character. Just be sure to keep the flame away from the decorations so that they don't catch on fire.

Using vegetables and raffia give makes them beautiful.

Another simple solution is a simple fall ribbon and an ornate gathering of cuts or a wood cutout in the middle of a hurricane.


Apothecary jars are a universal necessity of decoration. You can fill them with a vast variety of things for each and every season! Filling them with pecans, acorns and pine cones with fall ribbons are a great way to decorate.


Frames (we all know Walmart has the conveniently cheap $2 frames)are an easy way to decorate. A hot way to use them now is with no picture in them, just the frame itself. This one with just a simple strand of leaves across it is just too cute!

Have a mantel? These would be perfect decoration for above your fireplace or on a shelf! Simple matching frames with single letter print outs to spell out a word.

This one can be used as a frame or as a wreath. Pine cones do not have to be drab brown. Jazz them up with your favorite color!

Acorns are easy to use as well as pecans to line a frame or to make a wreath with. You could even attach a mirror to the back of this and hang it in your house.


Napkin rings with a fall flare!

An unusual alternative to a bowl for fall foliage...


Don't forget your stairs! Use bundles of wheat or cattails to decorate your stairs!


Don't forget the mums!


One of my absolute favorite things right now is a website of all things!!! Save-On-Crafts is one of my newest favorite cyber places to visit!!! They have tons of things that you can use to decorate your house, an event, a dinner party, or anything your heart desires! Here is the link to the website and their fall decorations page!!!

I thoroughly suggest you check it out and stock up! They are EXTREMELY affordable!!!

I hope this gives you some ideas and that the bug doesn't get you too soon!

  23. Everything said made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier title? I ain't saying your content isn't good.

    , however suppose you added something to possibly get folk's attention? I mean "Fall decoration ideas!" is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
