Fall Decor: Trendy not Cheesy

 

Featured Above: Simple As That

So, my favorite months are finally here! Fall is the perfect time to put those crafty hands to work and bring that warm and magical atmosphere of autumn into your home. Below, I have put together a few super simple craft ideas that are sure to spark some creativity!

Painted Pumpkins

Painting pumpkins a solid gold or white is a simple way to create a fun fall look without the threat of cheesy ghouls and goblins. You can also experiment with patterns like chevron, stripes, or polka dots. Paint your house number on a pumpkin and put it out by your mailbox as a fall address marker!

Fall Garland

Garland is an easy way to decorate any area inside or outside your home. Drape it over your mantle, on your staircase, or even on your front yard fence to make that fall statement. As shown above, it can be made with bright fabrics, or with scraps of paper and collected fall leaves (as shown in the title photo).

Party Planning

You can also bring fall decor easily into any party. Carve the inside of a pumpkin and you have a bowl for drinks! Or take cinnamon sticks and wrap them around candles with rustic twine. Let your imagination run wild with the colors and nature of fall!
