The fall season allows for decorating the home in warm and cozy colors. The materials that are used and the timeless ideas bring joy to the home and a sense of belonging when the family gets together. You can purchase decorations online or in retail stores, but if you’re looking for a way to spend time together as a family, then think about making some of the decorations for the home with materials like flowers, vases or pumpkins. There are several ways that you can bring together a few simple materials to create decorations that are stunning for any room of the home.
Bring On The Pumpkins
From making containers for flowers to painting pumpkins to make centerpieces for the kitchen table, there are numerous ways to use pumpkins to decorate the home. Stack pumpkins on end tables or on the kitchen table to create depth in the room. Paint pumpkins in colors that match the decor in the rest of your home. Gold and white pumpkins can be purchased at Target to create an elegant mantel in your living room. If you have a more rustic or farmhouse style to your home, hollow out a few pumpkins, paint them, and place flowers and other decorative items inside the pumpkin.
Customize Your Home
One of the ways that you can create timeless decorations for the fall season is to customize boards, banners and other items. Write a special message on the material that is used. You can draw a fun design as well. A chalkboard is an idea to consider that will allow you to change the design when you want. Banners are another idea. You can hang a banner that you make or that you purchase on a fireplace mantle or on an archway in the home. You don’t need to hang only one banner in the home. Combine a few different designs that you enjoy and designs that have different textures and that use a variety of materials. You can also use a blend of patterns in fall colors and designs. There are many DIY ideas you can find on Pinterest, but if you aren’t feeling crafty, pick a pre-made sign from Target or Etsy.
Decorate The Door
If you hop on Pinterest or Instagram and take a look at the front doors and porches that are nicely decorated for fall, then you’ll notice that a recurring theme right now is wreaths. This shouldn’t be the standard green wreath that you see for Christmas, though. Look for wreaths made with burlap, colored mesh, branches, and other materials that make it unique and a little bit rustic. Another element I really like to see on wreaths is the first letter of the family’s last name.
One of the best things about fall is that the decorations are rustic and natural, which lend beautifully to that farmhouse style that everyone loves. It’s the time of the year that New Englanders live for with the warm colors like orange, yellow and red. Combine these natural features with a few personal touches, for a beautiful look in the home during the autumn season.
