Natural Ways To Decorate For Fall

Natural Ways To Decorate For Fall
Fall is arguably one of the most beautiful times of year. The colors are unique and inviting. They bring a sense of coziness to the environment, both inside and outside. Here are a few ways you can decorate naturally for autumn.

Make Use of In Season Produce

Pumpkins and the various squash and gourds that are in season make for the perfect decorations around your home. You can add them to your table as centerpieces, on bookshelves, and on dressers to make spaces more festive throughout the next few months. You can place pumpkins on your front stairs and porch and put small squash and other gourds in windows. Around Halloween you can use both carved and uncarved pumpkins to decorate. You will find pumpkins, squash, and gourds of many colors.

Use Natural Elements from Outside

Leaves that have fallen off trees can be used as decor in many ways. Along with small twigs, pine cones, and acorns you find around the yard, you can fill a bowl with these items for a pretty autumn centerpiece on a coffee table, side table, or dining table. You can make wreaths with the colorful leaves or have your children string them together like garland to hang around your home. You can even create temporary fall-style photo frames by taping a leaf on to a corner of each frame. Such a simple move will give your home that autumn look. You can even frame leaves that you love and create fall decor that you can use year after year.

Decorate with Fresh Apples

Chances are you're doing a lot of baking with apples this season, so why not use some to decorate with as well before you toss them in a delicious pie? Apples in the entryway, along window sills, or on the mantle are a wonderful way to give your home a more fall-like feel. Bowls of apples in the kitchen are also decorative. Place some apples on a tray along with some leaves or mason jars with flowers to create a decorative piece that easily moved from one spot to another. Apples also come in various colors, so you can pick them to suit your decorating taste and theme.

Make Name Card Holders

With fall comes many get-togethers with family and friends. To create unique and in-season place card holders, you can use small apples, gourds, pine cones, acorns, or dried leaves to attach a little card with each guests name on it with string or simply propped up. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to flex your creative muscle and create name card holders that will make your guests “oh,” and “ah.” Your creative creations can also make for lovely hostess gifts when you're invited to dinner at someone else's house.

You don't have to be a genius with arts and crafts or decorating in general to come up with natural decorating ideas for fall. Nature has taken care of most of the work for you. All you need to do is display them in your own way.
