1 . Faux Florals

We all love fall’s fresh bounty in our home, but sometimes faux is also a friend. It takes just a few minutes to stick a few branches of bittersweet in a vase or wrap it around some furnishings, like this vintage grandfather clock. If you don’t have a tall timepiece in your space, loop bittersweet around another focal point or string it along a fireplace mantel.

2. Cozy Bedroom

The sign says it all: This bedroom is so serene it would be nearly impossible to get out of bed. A mix of knits in cool colors contrasts warm fall home decor, like red and orange leaves, plaid wool, and a tasseled orange throw pillow. Small touches, like a teal velvet pumpkin on the nightstand and a printed sheep pillow, add seasonal surprises.

3. DIY Fall Centerpiece

You don’t have to rely on store-bought flower arrangements for a beautiful fall centerpiece. Make your own for far less with cut flowers. Fill vases in various shapes and sizes with multiple stems, such as zinnias, chrysanthemums, and dahlias. Mix in a few ornamental grasses or branches of berries for texture. The finished product is impressive enough to be displayed as a Thanksgiving centerpiece.

4. Unpolished Perfection

We love the look of weathered furnishings paired with traditional harvest accents. The cabinetry, buffet, and chalkboard in this dining room all have a distressed look that complements rustic fall home decor. Instead of writing on the chalkboard, hang a garland that reads “fall” across it. Display yellow and orange pumpkins, gourds, and leaves on flea market serving pieces below.

5. Classic with a Twist

Create simple yet stunning fall home decor for a buffet or mantel in a few quick steps. Start with different-sized pumpkins, grab stems of Chinese lantern plants, and stick them in a blue vase. While it’s pretty straightforward, using a blue vase and a flower with a unique shape takes the arrangement to the next level.

6. Festive Fall Front Porch

Your front porch will be the talk of the neighborhood with this inviting mix of fall decor ideas. Pair DIY decor, like these custom pumpkin candleholders, with store-bought pillows and throws in cozy plaids. And don’t forget the large welcome sign to encourage everyone to stop by and stay awhile.

7. Take It Outside

Why should your indoor spaces have all the fun? Add a touch of fall to your front door using the same elements you use inside. Baskets and bins make for easy planters and display stands for stacked ‘Cinderella’ pumpkins.

8. DIY Fall Home Decor

This unique fall home decor can be created with items foraged from your backyard. The base is made out of sticks arranged in a leaf shape, and the adornments are various leaves and acorns. You could even turn this craft into a wreath by attaching wire to the foundation and hanging it on your door.

9. Unexpected Hues

While golds, reds, and oranges are all perfectly acceptable colors for fall home decor, they’re expected. Try arranging purple and pink flowers among your pumpkins and gourds to elevate the basic fall palette. A few persimmons and ornamental cabbage keep the look decidedly seasonal.

10. Complementary Colors

Create a big impact with your fall displays by using contrasting colors. Use a colored vase that complements the color of the leaves you use, which makes the leaves stand out and adds decorative interest. Stick with cool colors, like blues, purples, and greens, to complement shades of red, orange, and yellow leaves.

11. Natural Fall Table

Whether for Thanksgiving dinner or a weekend brunch with friends, set a gorgeous fall table easily using this formula. Mix old and new, weave textures throughout your items, add natural touches, and incorporate hints of blue for a thoroughly modern take. The best part? Most of these fall home decor items can be found for free in your backyard.

12. Seasonal Spread

Plan a few arrangements for the full fall home decor effect and spread the season from your mantel to your coffee table. Replace existing pillows and throws with fall-colored counterparts, and you’re ready for the season!

13. So Much Cozy

With warm colors, touches of nature, and a hint of sophistication, this mantel display embodies the best of fall. To make the wreath:

  1. Use a wire wreath form as a base.
  2. Snip bunches of sumac, leaving 6-inch stems. Push them firmly into the wire form, moving from left to right.
  3. Work your way around, layering and securing branches with wire until full.
  4. Use a hot-glue gun to secure additional pieces to fill in gaps.
  5. Tie with a velvet ribbon to hang.

Complete the display with golden yellow vases, objects, and a few additional fronds and branches.

14. Fall Patterns

Set your table for the season by combining a variety of fall styles. Drape your table in a plaid flannel tablecloth. Top it with seasonal produce such as apples, pumpkins, and little gourds, and garnish the look with flowers. Accents in warm, neutral colors such as brown, yellow, orange, and red add to the fall-inspired look.

15. Forget the Flowers

Next dinner party, skip the flowers and head for the trees. Dress up place settings with mini bouquets of leaves tied with ribbon. Or arrange a few leafy branches in a vase for a stylish centerpiece. Heartier than flowers but just as festive, branches will last several days to a week in water. Look for leaves that have turned colors but are not yet brittle.

16. Personalized Pumpkins

Jack-o’-lantern faces aren’t the only option for pumpkins in fall home decor. Try different pumpkin-decorating techniques to correspond with your style. Go with curvy carvings for a more elegant, refined look, or paint shapes or designs on the pumpkin for a bold look. For more variety, try different sizes of pumpkins or different colors: orange, white, or even green.

17. Gorgeous Gourds

Gourds are fun fall decorations because of their various shapes, sizes, and colors. Whether green, orange, white, round, curvy or a combination, gourds can add fall color and diversity to your room. Try placing them in a basket, bowl, or serving platter to add an autumnal touch to any space.

18. Autumnal Art

Dress up your mantel or wall with this simple art project. To press and dry leaves, place them between sheets of newsprint inside a heavy book for several days. Stretch linen over a canvas and staple onto the frame. Pin pressed leaves onto the canvas in rows for a graphic arrangement.

19. Earthy Meets Elegant

Place an earthy fall arrangement under a glass display dome to create a casual yet elegant look. Combine the best of the fall harvest, such as gourds, small pumpkins, and hedge apples, in a shallow terra-cotta bulb pan, and cover with a cloche to construct the simple autumn arrangement.

20. Seasonal Substitutions

As the seasons change outside, so can your home decor. One easy and creative way to cultivate a subtle fall style statement is by switching out ordinary accessories for ones with texture. Here, a standard lampshade was replaced with a linen one, incorporating natural texture in an unexpected place.

21. Impressive Fall Flowers

Bring together an array of autumn colors with a mix-and-match arrangement of flowers. Chrysanthemums are common fall flowers that vary in appearance and can create stunning displays. Pair them with pom-poms, anemones, quills, spiders, brushes, thistles, or single or double mums. There are plenty of fall flowers to combine for a gorgeous bunch.

For an arrangement with a big impact, position flowers in tall, cylindrical vases and place the vases together. Wrap the grouping with a wide ribbon, and use adhesive squares to hold the ribbon in place.

22. Effortless Arrangement

Creating festive fall home decor is easy, with abundant falling leaves and branches available at almost every turn. Here, a bundle of collected grasses was placed in a small metal bucket to create a casual side table display. The grasses were left unarranged to create a rustic, just-gathered look.

23. DIY Table Runner

Spruce up a neutral table display to prepare for seasonal entertaining. Take a trip to your local fabric store, and select a seasonal pattern in the colors of your choice. Make sure you purchase enough for a table runner that spans the length of your table. Hem the edges using a sewing machine or hem tape. Decorate with white pumpkins and vibrant branches of bittersweet.

24. Bountiful Fall Entryway

Welcome guests into your home with casual fall home decor in your entryway. Creatively repurpose serving trays to display a collection of gourds or small pumpkins. Large, primitive-style pottery can hold an arrangement of leafy branches or late-blooming flowers. This table was placed in the center of this spacious entryway, but you can also re-create the display on a side table if your home has limited space.

25. Seasonal Slumber

If you have neutral bed linens needing a seasonal lift, switch out sheets or sham covers for ones in fall-inspired hues. These bold red sheets and shams pop against white paneled walls. Choosing linens in shades of red will come in handy even after all the leaves have fallen since the color can stick around into the holiday season.

26. Double-Duty Decor

Add seasonal style and functionality to your living spaces by draping cozy blankets across the backs of chairs. The blankets will see plenty of use as people snuggle up on those brisk autumn nights. Search for blankets in colors and patterns that complement your decor for a seamless look.

27. Budget-Friendly Table Settings

Rather than investing in all-new seasonal dishware, pair what you already have with a complementing fall centerpiece. Orange leaves and mini pumpkins complement the light blue dishes on this pretty tablescape. You can also pair dishware you already own with festive napkins and table linens to create an easy fall arrangement.

28. Seasonal Centerpiece

Create a laid-back fall table arrangement using fallen leaves and green gourds. With their irregular shapes and imperfect surfaces, squash varieties and leaves lend natural texture and visual appeal to this casual dining space. A tall vase holding a single tree branch adds height and dimension to this autumn display.

29. Low-Cost Flower Arrangement

Creating a stunning seasonal centerpiece doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Collect fallen branches and place them in a vessel you already own for inexpensive and effortless fall home decor. Or take a trip to your local crafts store and search out faux branches adorned with fall berries or leaves. The arrangement will have the same wow-worthy effect, but you won’t have to worry about trailing bugs or dirt into your home, and you can use the faux finds for years to come.

30. Woodland Wonder

Turn russet-orange roses into an autumn accent simply by using woodland-inspired details. Fern fronds and acorns add a forestlike touch, giving the glam roses a sense of earthiness. Complete the look by turning a basic vase into a woodland stunner by wrapping it in wood-look paper.

31. Wreaths for All

A wreath is a perfect way to add fall decor to your front door, mantels, walls, and more. Combine greenery with fall-color accents, such as fruits, nuts, or small pumpkins or gourds. The combination of colors and the natural look will instantly bring an autumn touch to the room. With a simple greenery wreath, you can easily replace the fall accents with wintry counterparts later in the season.
