Decorating your home for Fall doesn’t have to be complicated! It’s simply adding elements of nature and rustic hues to your existing decor. I’ll share my top 11 ways to add Fall to my home and you’ll be enjoying a cozy space that feels like football, family and fun in no time!
I hope this round-up will get your creative juices flowing. Don’t forget when decorating for the seasons to always shop your house first! Try out old items in unexpected ways. For instance, I had everything on my mantel except for the faux pumpkin and the pinecone filler, which cost me about $7 at Hobby Lobby. Bringing fall decor into your home doesn’t have to be expensive!
And you’ll want to follow my Fall Decor board on Pinterest. I’ve been pinning fall inspiration like crazy and will keep it up. So stay inspired!
Happy Fall, y’all!
1. Pumpkins! We’ll start with the obvious first thing you can use to add fall to your home. These gorgeous plants in the squash family are simply gorgeous. I love them stacked or piled or nestled into a bed of fall foliage. I’m not picky.

Although I absolutely love the cinderella pumpkin, which are the blue pumpkins, like the one in the middle above. And the white pumpkins are gorgeous, too!

I still love an orange pumpkin for a jack-o-lantern!
2. Apples. What better way to add to your fall decor than to decorate with the delicious apple? Fall means all things apple, like apple cider, apple pie, apple muffins, apple cake, apple butter (!!), candied apples and more! Are you getting hungry yet??

I seriously just popped over to Pinterest and started pinning apple recipes, because tomorrow I’m going to the store to make something delicious. Ha!
But sometimes a bowl of apples (or caramel apples) is the perfect touch to add a subtle fall touch.
3. Chalkboards. I love the chalky black look with typography all of the time, but especially in the fall. It reminds me of Halloween and the richness of the black lends itself to a warmer color palette like autumn.

4. The Outdoors! Pinecones, Acorns, Leaves + more! You don’t have to leave the leaves and stick outside this fall. Grab some pinecones, acorns and leaves for free decor that packs a punch!

5. Burlap. The nubby, farmhouse textured fabric is always a great addition in the home during the Fall season. Whether you are using it for a wreath, table runner or just incorporated into your decor, burlap is a perfect choice for fall.

6. Mums get their own category because they are the fall “flower”. Or more like a flowering bush … what exactly are they? Either way, they look gorgeous inside or outside of the home. Definitely pick some up this season, if you do nothing else except for plop them by the front door like I do!

7. Sticks, Twigs & Stumps. I know that this one could be categorized as bringing the outside in, but I thought that sticks needed their own category. 😊 I love how Liz Marie decorated her buffet with larger sticks in vases. So cute and inexpensive!

8. Pillows! As always, a seasonal throw pillow is a good idea. There are so may adorable pillows out there with fall sentiments or pumpkins – and in every price point!
I personally love all of the pillows from Lucy at Craftberry Bush. I have several of them and always get questions about where I got them. I’ve taken a watercolor class from her once, and let’s just say what she has is raw talent. It’s not easy to watercolor like this!
And they don’t have to be super fall-y. You can choose a saying about being thankful that you could display all year. Or just choose a pattern with warm tones. I love, love, love navy! And like to bring it out more in the fall and winter.
9. Mercury Glass. It used to be all the rage, but I think there’s still a place for some mercury glass in the fall and winter. I love a good mercury glass candle holder. It reminds me of twinkly lights and stars.

10. Galvanized Metals. If you’re looking for the metal look, but not digging the sparkly mercury glass, then try some galvanized metal. I know it’s so popular in the farmhouse scene these days, so it’s abundantly available.

Try some large olive baskets or a cute galvanized tray filled with pumpkins.

11. Books. And last, but not least, these lovely books can add so much interest to a fall vignette or a mantel display. Many books have warm colored covers, which are perfect for fall and so many times you can find them for cheap in thrift stores. Or you may even find them in your grandma’s old bookcase.

Those are just a few small ways you can add a little something to your seasonal decor. I love that it can be so inexpensive and easy to decorate for fall!
