10 Decorating Tips to Make Your Home Warm and Inviting for Fall
It is so hot in Florida about 9 months out of the year so the Fall weather is such a welcome change! I love opening the windows, cleaning the house from head to toe and then decorating ! I love that you can start decorating for Fall in October and you can keep the decorations up for TWO full months before Christmas! That means that your home can be warm and inviting for a lot longer than most holiday decor. What I dislike is that it seems like the stores are full of Halloween decor with some Fall thrown in the mix of it and then as soon as Halloween is over the Christmas stuff comes out. I like to stock up on Fall decor in October so I have nice things to decorate with that will last through Thanksgiving as well. 

Here are 10 Decorating Tips to Make Your Home Warm and Inviting For Fall:

1. Decorate the front porch

I love the craft pumpkins you can purchase at the craft stores. They are inexpensive when you find a good sale paired with a teacher discount card or if you use a coupon. These can be reused over and over. We also like the little scarecrows and “flower picks” you can grab at the dollar tree. You can use any empty buckets or flower pots and make a cute arrangement or you can decorate a flower bed with them. Hay bales and corn stalks are also a pretty option!

2. Make a wreath for your front door

A holiday wreath makes such a pretty statement on your front door. They aren’t hard to make either. I don’t have any fancy bowmaking skills but I do have a glue gun! I always buy my supplies on clearance or with a coupon and have never spent more than $10-15 to make a custom wreath. My girls helped me make this wreath and it took us about 30 minutes!

3. Make a wreath for the inside of the house

I love wreaths. They just seem so homey and inviting to me. We made this wreath last Thanksgiving to hang on our china cabinet. We loved it so much that we never took it down. It just has a nice vintage, country feel to it. This one cost less than $10 to make.

4. Crochet some pumpkins!

I just learned how to crochet this summer. It is very simple and it’s quite relaxing! I found the Little Pumpkin Crochet Pattern from Petals to Picot.These took me just a couple of evenings to make and the pattern is simple,easy for beginners and easy to customize the size. I paired them with a clearance candle from Joann’s and a cute ceramic dollar store pumpkin. I love the cozy, homemade feel of handmade decorations.

5. Mini gourds and pumpkins

gourds
These cute little pumpkins and gourds are sitting right in the middle of my kitchen table! I am sure you could make a nicer centerpiece with leaves and burlap, but my girls did this and I think it’s adorable so we left it. Some of these they picked out themselves at a pumpkin patch field trip we went on, the others I got for 5o and 99 cents at Trader Joes! They have gorgeous gourds, pumpkins and flowers for Fall decor.

6. Make a no sew thankful banner!

I made this out of scrap burlap, ribbon from the dollar section at Michael’s and I painted the letters with cheap acrylic paint. I already had everything in my craft stash so this didn’t cost me anything to make! You can also use fabric scraps and a sewing machine to make a bunting, I used craft glue for this one! 

7. Decorate with nature
This is easy especially if you live where the trees actually drop leaves and pinecones for you! You can have your kids gather pretty maple leaves, pinecones, dried berries and more to make a nice centerpiece for your table. Or you can get a cute basket and fill them with nature to set on your coffee table. It isn’t cold enough yet for lots of fallen leaves here, we usually do this a few days before Thanksgiving.

8. Candles
I love candles! You can find candle holders and candles at the dollar store. You can even decorate mason jars and put tea lights in them. This gives such a nice, cozy ambience for Fall!

9. Print out cute quotes and verses and frame them
Here is a round up of the 50 Best Thanksgiving Printables from I Heart Naptime
I love searching for unique frames at thrift stores, you don’t even need the glass. I’ve seen cute ones at dollar stores also. Just print on colored or white cardstock, cut to fit and frame!

10.Children’s artwork
If you have a home full of children, Fall decor isn’t complete without handprint turkeys, pine cone turkeys, handmade thankful signs and more. Using your kids crafts and creations is the best way to make your home feel warm and inviting for Fall.

Enjoy decorating with your family! Be Blessed!
