Fall decorating ideas can be as creative or as a simple as a walk outside your home. With a wealth of changing fall colors, falling pine cones, ripening pumpkins, cooler weather, blooming fall plant life, and the holidays right around the corner, fall is the season when decorating ideas are the least expensive and the easiest to come by. You can literally have a different creative fall decorating theme each week if you enjoy decorating and giving your family and friends something new and exciting to look forward to each week. Learn from experts about creative fall decorating ideas you can start planning for right now, keeping your home vibrant, warm, and inviting all fall and winter long.
One of the most obvious creative fall decorating ideas is to plan out your fall decorating calendar around the major holidays. First up on the holiday agenda is Labor Day, which is a day of rest and relaxation. Here, consider a simple colorful fall wreath on your door and a fun garden sign that has a creative saying such as, "Rest - you deserve it!" Next, Halloween is just around the corner, with its plethora of witches brews, ghosts and goblins, jack o' lanterns and delicious holiday candy treats. Following Halloween is Thanksgiving, where horns of plenty are overflowing with goodness and rich foods and feasting is enjoyed by all. Finally, with December, comes a range of holidays culminating in Santa's visit or other traditional holiday celebrations depending on your faith background. For each holiday you can enjoy a different theme, stretching yourself creatively in new directions and choosing decorations that can carry over from one holiday to the next to keep your decorating budget-friendly.
Fall itself gives you a wealth of creative decorating ideas. Add a few bales of hay to the front yard, and prop up some fun stuffed dolls wearing scarecrow attire and happy smiles. Add pumpkins, gourds, potted plants, and cute wooden painted signs for a welcoming front porch. Gather up colorful fall leaves that have fallen and, using a needle and thread, string up a festive fall garland to string across the foyer or over the front door. Gather together branches full of fall foliage, add some winterberry holly with the green leaves and red berries, work in some moss and pine cones, and wire it all onto a premade wreath circle that you can get at a craft store, and you will have a front door wreath that can last you from Labor Day through New Year's Eve. Another great fun and creative fall decorating idea that is inexpensive is to gather up fallen twigs, stand them up around a candle, and tie them together with colorful ribbon in fall colors. You can use these as part of your place settings for your holiday gatherings. Another great easy fall decorating idea is to buy a series of small pumpkins of different colors, some bigger orange pumpkins, and some blooming potted chrysanthemums in fall colors like yellow, burnt red, orange, and deep burgundy, and make a front yard display.
