Inspiration for Fall Decorations
Autumn is definitely my favorite season. Colorful leaves on the street, pumpkin spice latte, cozy afternoons, blankets, sweaters, rainy days, movie nights, Halloween and thanksgiving….what’s not to love about autumn?
With all of these wonderful things also comes decor time! I don’t know about you, but I love, love loooove seasonal decoration. I think it helps a lot to make the house “homey”.
So here are 10 ideas for fall decoration this year: I hope they are a good source of inspiration!
Wreaths are one of the best seasonal decorations. You can customize them however you want and they look pretty almost everywhere (a wall, your front and back door..etc).
I will leave you here a YouTube video by Garden Answer( they are great!!). It explains in easy steps how to make your own wreath.
Here are the supplies you will need for this project:

To decorate with flowers is easy, affordable and it makes your house look like a million bucks! Choose warm colors for the fall. (If you don’t know how to do a flower arrangement, I will post a tutorial very soon!)
4.DIY Sharpie Mug
This is an amazing DIY project for any time of the year, but I like to do it in the fall because it is when I use my mugs the most (colder/rainy days=warm latte/ hot chocolate). If you are like me, and have a collection of mugs (and you leave them everywhere) it would be even more amazing if some of the mugs were decorated for Autumn.
There is a bunch of ways to decorate a mug, but I will leave you here a YouTube tutorial by Creaternet.
Everyone knows this one….Pumpkins for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving! I personally like to put them everywhere! On top of the media center, on the table as a center piece, on shelves, in the bathroom…Big and small, orange and white… mix them up!
6.Autumn table cloth
Unless you already own a very “fall-y” tablecloth this is a good tip (yeah?) I love to add a little color on my dining room and get an orange, red, dark green or brown tablecloth. I got mine in amazon here.

Okay, I don’t know if it is because I’m very romantic or because I love reading or because I love the forest and the mountains and I relate books to that, but I always thought that to decorate with books is a great idea. 1)Its cheap and 2) If they are lying around you might as well pick one up and read it! and 3) You can play with different colors, different sizes…etc. I usually like to do it during the fall and winter because I don’t know, it just works! Books are cozy! and in the summer I like to go outside more. So..use your books!
8.Fairy lights in mason jars
Create a relaxed and cozy atmosphere by putting these lights around the house. I put them in the bedrooms, livingroom, as a center piece for the table and also in the bathroom! It is great if you don’t want to have lighted candles everywhere in case something happens. (And its great if you have kids)
You can buy these here.
Who doesn’t enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Scented Candle?? I love the smell of it! (Sadly my husband hates it so this year I’m replacing it with a Vanilla scent for my house)
You can put these in a mason jar, a vase, a pitcher…wherever you want. Here is a link to buy them in amazon but if you live around a wheat farm..take advantage! Ask if you can take a few bundles.
I would like to add that you can also decorate with pillows, blankets and baskets! (I will be making a post about diy pillow designs soon)

By the way, I just wanted to add that I do not do affiliate sales yet, and the only reason I put links to amazon in here is that I love amazon and it makes it easier for you to find the stuff you are looking for. I personally use amazon all the time, specially when I can’t -or don’t want- to deal with Nyc traffic.
