Nights are cooling down, Leaves are about to fall off trees, and the weather is changing. Fall is here, and even though the season is dry and cold, your living space shouldn’t have to be. No, but fall is not just cold and dry; it has crisps, beautiful autumn colors, texture, and much more.
The living room, if not the most, has to be one of the most anticipated rooms in a house in terms of decor. It is the center of attraction in your home. It has to be welcoming, vibrant, comfortable, and cozy.
With every season, we look for something new, something fresh in clothing, food, etc. Ergo, your space should not be left out from the seasonal changes. But, you are not going to renovate your whole living space every season. Do you? Therefore, decorate your living room with everything fall has to offer. From pumpkins, fallen leaves, OP fireplace, the mantle of seasonal goodies, warm lighting, throw pillows, spooky decor, and don’t forget the fall colors to incorporate. You can create so much.
Let’s begin exploring fall decor DIY ideas:
Canvas collage for your home
Pictures never get out of season. Instead, they can be seasonal. And with the colors and texture fall has to offer; this is a perfect picture season. So, go out there, click some fall pictures, candid or posed.
Choose your favorite fall photos and get your customized canvas collage at Canvaspop. And create a photo mantel. Add some decor to the mantel like small pumpkins, vases, candles, etc.
You can also make a photo garland to decorate the mantel. It’s the perfect fall decor to compliment any style.
Apart from a photo mantel, you can also create a fall gallery wall with different canvases and collages. Pictures look way more beautiful when taken in the fall season. It’s the color that reflects beautifully. Therefore, showcasing these fall canvases is a must. Get different canvas collages and create a feature wall for fall.
Wreath and Garland
On top of the fireplace, or mantel, or bar section, the wreath and Garland will look great. Handcraft a wreath with jute rope, leaves, dried wheat, cotton stems. Or get a wood wreath and decorate it with a ribbon bow, jute cloth, rope, and cotton stems. Put everything together in the right places; that’s it. Easy and creative.
Pumpkin oh! pumpkin
Why are pumpkins so famous for fall decor? The answer is easy. They go well with the theme, the colors, and the pumpkin decor ideas are countless.
Using a natural pumpkin is not the best option. It will rot quickly. Therefore, go for foam pumpkins or wooden pumpkins when you are doing fall decor.
- Make a standing pumpkin with a wooden pumpkin. Decorate it with flowers, leaves, etc. Write something nice on it. You can put it on the mantel or anywhere you like.
- Get some foam pumpkins, paint them and place them on top of the mantel, on your bar section, center table, and windows.
- Make a jute pumpkin or wrap jute rope around a pumpkin. It looks perfect for the fall theme. Earthy.
For the fall season, we need a warm and cozy living room. Pile up the couch or sofa with throw pillows. The pillow cover should be in different colors and textures according to the fall season.
Lights, Lamps, and Candles
For a warmer feel, put in warmer lights. Days are getting shorter; choose brighter and warm tone lights. Low lying lights look elegant and warm. They set the perfect mood for fall.
The fall season is perfect for candles and lamps. A warm glow from a table lamp and candles is all heartwarming. Put candles on the mantel. It doesn’t have to be boring. Decorate the candle stands and candles, lamps with fall decor. Ideas are endless.
Fall brings the warm undertone colors like Orange, yellow, red, caramel, burgundy, and brown. If you like these colors, accumulate them in decor. Paint pumpkin orange, brown quilts, fall color pillows, autumn color sofa or couch, will all set the cozy vibe. Collect fall color accents altogether.
If you want to go extra, paint the room in deeper colors for the ultimate fall decor change.
Sofa, Couch, fabric, and texture
Throw a quilt on the sofa or couch. Pair up fall colors and texture in your furniture. That rustic, caramelized fall decor enhances the whole earthy, warm feel. Again, pile them up with cute textured pillows like these adorable pumpkin accent pillows from Target.
Instead of flowers, decorate vases with cotton stems, dried wheat, colorful fall leaves, tree twigs, and bittersweet twigs. Place these vases on the coffee table, mantel, shelves, sideboard, and fireplace.
You can also decorate these vases with jute rope, paint them fall colors, and make a knitted vase cover. It’s the perfect fall decor.
Fill some with popcorn, dried corn, acorn, candies, peanuts, coffee, and cookies, decorate them, and put them on the coffee table and mantel. Simple and treats.
It’s all about getting warm, cozy, and comfy. So, why not knit everything? From quilts, pillow covers, pumpkins, garlands to tabletop covers, everything can be knitted—another DIY simple custom.
Message Boards look cool every season, but for fall decor, it fits perfectly. Make cool message boards with woods, jute, copper plates, etc. Place them around the living room. This whole idea is to make your living room rustic, earthy, and textured.
No, no, don’t worry. It’s not going to scare guests. Scarecrows are usually for farms, but you can make a cute little scarecrow for your living room. It is unusual, but It also suits the Halloween season. Make a pumpkin head scarecrow to make it look funny. You can also buy a scarecrow to save some time and hard work. But crafting will be fun.
