Fall Wreath fr Your Door
Howard L. Puckett

Deck the Door

 

Add fall embellishments, such as leaves, acorn clusters, and pinecones, and then secure them with wire and hot glue. Finish off the wreath with a bow on the bottom. Make two or three, and you can add one to your mailbox as well.

Colorful Front Entry

Add some container plants. Plant yellow and gold chrysanthemums in large terra-cotta pots and arrange them with several autumn pumpkins on your front steps as a welcoming entrance for guests.

Chrysanthemums come in several colors, including white, off-white, yellow, gold, bronze, red, and burgundy, so choose a variety of colors.


Painting fall colors

Paint with Fall Colors

Add a splash of color by painting your walls with fall-inspired hues. An orange, yellow, or dark red entryway can energize a space without much effort.

Fall Pillow Updates
Van Chaplin

Accentuate With Pillows

Accent pillows are the easiest accessories to change out for a quick update. If your current pillow covers are not removable, buy a yard or two of a fall textile at your local fabric store and sew some new covers with a button or zipper closure to go over your current pillows.

Choose heavier fabrics with a comfortable texture. This will carry you through winter and is more reasonable than pricey custom pillow covers.


Lampshades for Fall

Shades of Autumn

Find some new lampshades in hues of cranberry, rust, dark chocolate brown, or forest green. Or, add color to your current white lampshades by trimming the edges with ribbon.

Remember, autumn is known for the rich colors in the falling leaves, so let nature be your inspiration when choosing your shade.


Drapes for Fall

Drape Update

You can make your own curtains to switch out with lightweight summer selections. Buy a heavier fabric such as velvet or acrylic to cover windows, and line the back with a heavy canvas material.

Lining windows with thick, sturdy treatments will also help keep your power bills lower by helping to block out cold air that seeps in through the windows.


Fall Centerpiece Ideas

Natural Arrangements

Use natural items as a centerpiece. Fill a glass bowl or vase with a colorful mixture of seasonal fruits such as pomegranates and kumquats.

For a taller centerpiece, use an arrangement of dried fall flowers, and fill the bottom of the vase with acorns gathered from your own yard.


Fall Kitchen Ideas

Kitchen Color

Don’t forget about the kitchen. Give your kitchen a fall update with dried flowers, wreaths, and woven baskets. Nix the fruit basket, and fill a glass bowl with a range of seasonal vegetables, such as acorn squash, pears, quince, figs, and small pumpkins. Display fall-colored hand towels, oven mitts, and aprons to splash your kitchen with seasonal colors. Also, fill your dispenser with citrus- and pine-scented hand soaps for earthy fall scents.


Fall Bedding

Cozy-Up Comforter

Add a winter quilt on the end of your bed for a splash of fall color and added warmth on those chilly autumn nights. Pick one with a darker neutral color (such as chocolate brown) to easily match your current bedding.
