When it comes to fall decorations and seasonal decor in general, there’s nothing more satisfying than easy diy home decor! Arranging pumpkins on a mantle beautifully, creating a flower arrangement in Autumn hues; it doesn’t have to be complicated. Usually, you will need a few simple supplies, which I’ve linked below, and you can achieve some stunning decor in under $20.
Get Cozy With Fall Throw Blankets And Throw Pillows
Do you love to sew or knit? As Ned Stark of "Game of Thrones" would say, winter is coming. And that's the perfect time to make gifts for the family or craft some colorful throws to decorate your place.
If you haven't tried knitting with bamboo yarn, now's the time. Bamboo grows sustainably and the material naturally whisks sweat away from your body. It keeps you comfortably warm without overheating you on those chilly autumn nights. Plus they make a great home decor idea to DIY.
If you know how to knit and want a gorgeous super chunky blanket to knit, read my Udon Blanket XXL Kit Review from WeAreKnitters and if you decide to order, you can use my coupon code and save $12!
You don’t have to knit a blanket of course, you can just go ahead and buy a chunky knit blanket and get snuggly ASAP. Especially if you have Amazon Prime! You could be snuggling up to some hot cocoa in a stunning dusty pink throw this time tomorrow and enjoying a mindful fall moment.
Fall Wreaths Decorate The Front Door Beautifully
Wreaths are easy fall decorations to make. You can find bases made of styrofoam at your local dollar store or spend slightly more for a stick-like base. Then, gather up the fun stuff. Hit the farmers market for some colorful corn cobs or go flower picking for mums and goldenrod (as long as you don't have allergies).
You can also use pine cones or acorns, corn stalks or even beads or LED mini light strings in orange and golden hues.
Because wreaths prove easy and inexpensive fall decorations to make, you can create different ones for each door or every upcoming holiday. Cut bats and black cats out of black card to decorate a Halloween wreath. Or cut out cornucopias and turkeys to prepare for Thanksgiving.
Create Fall Decorations With String Lights and Beads
You can create anything from garlands to door hangers with beads and bangles, so why not just include some string lights for added warmth?!
The best part? Beads don't cost much at many craft stores. You can even make some stylish fall jewelry nice enough to wear to the office.
Simply pick up beads in a variety of fall hues. You can make a mantlepiece garland by alternating pinecones and acorns in between your beadwork, highlighting with dangling electric tea lights in small mason jars if you like. Or string an acorn bead as a centrepiece and highlight with one or two beads of amber and gold for a stunning pendant.

Bring the Outdoors In for Fall Decor
Step outside on a fall day in many locations and the trees greet you with a riot of vibrant hues. Why not bring the outdoors in by creating some whimsical leaf crafts to decorate your pad? One DIY home decor idea? Use a hot-glue gun to glue colorful leaves to the outside of small jars to make seasonal candle holders.
Alternately, break off small branches filled with leaves in a variety of hues just pick up a basket and Styrofoam base and you’re good to go. Arrange the branches to create a beautiful table centerpiece.
You can fill in any gaps with apples, gourds, or even fall artificial mini pumpkins. Via Via Spark and Chemistry.
Scented Fall Decorations: Painted and Cinnamon Pine Cone Potpourri
Got cinnamon? Why not make your house smell amazing for way longer than it takes to run the oven by making your potpourri? You'll need some pinecones and cinnamon essential oil — or use the ground kind you already have in your cupboard for this DIY idea. Roast your pinecones in the oven to remove all sap and either let them marinate in essential oil or use glue with powdered cinnamon.
To display your creation artistically, pick up a wire bowl at your local dollar or craft store. Grab a few extra pinecones and spray paint them gold for accent. Mix the potpourri pinecones with the dried gold ones and you have gorgeous scented accent fall decor to highlight any end table.
Outdoor Fall Decor; How to Turn a Pumpkin into a Planter
Why stick to simply carving a pumpkin when you can make these oversized gourds into creative planters for fall flowers? Simply remove the top and scoop out the innards.
Hint: save the seeds for roasting with olive oil in the oven for a magnesium-rich, healthy snack.
Then, fill the pumpkins two-thirds of the way with potting soil. Plant colorful mums or marigolds, both of which grow well even as temperatures cool. Use your creations to line your walkway and guests will feel like autumn royalty when they enter.
