Fall is many people’s favorite time of the year, including the experts here at Window Nation! The days start to become shorter, the weather becomes crisp and cool, your tank tops can be traded in for comfy sweaters, and your home becomes filled with the scents of pumpkin, apples, and spices. The fall season and all its brilliant colors is also the perfect excuse to spend time inside decorating your home and windows.
Many of the things that you will want or need to decorate your home with this autumn can be found at your local craft store, your local big box store, the dollar store, or even the local pumpkin patch. Decorating for fall can be a fun activity for the whole family to do together in a very economical way.
Pumpkins, gourds, and squash can all be used in a variety of ways to decorate your home. They come in a huge variety of colors, orange, yellow, white, and gray to name a few. They also come in a huge variety of sizes, from the very small and lumpy pumpkin to the very large and shiny ones. They can be used on your porch, in decorative bowls on your tables, in book shelves, or as accent pieces on your window sills.
Mums, hay bales, trees branches and corn stalks can all be used to decorate your porch or deck area. Create a homemade scarecrow (a great project to do with your kids) to place along your walkway, driveway or front steps.
Use fall-themed scrap paper, card stock, or fabric to create an autumn themed pennant banner to place across a mantel, or over the windows in your home. Another great idea for either your mantel, or to place in your bay or bow windows is to take either real or fake fall leaves and using Mod Podge apply them to a mason jar; add tea candles to create a festive DIY jar candle holder.
Acorns, pine cones, candy corn, tiny pumpkins or squash can all be layered in an inexpensive large glass vases or cylinders. Layering with these items is a great way to create a fall-themed centerpiece for your dining room table.
Fall themed pillows can be purchased to be placed on your bay window’s day bed. Fall colored curtains can be hung on your home’s windows to give it a warm and cozy feeling, and to help get everyone in your family ready for fall.
The experts at Window Nation hope that these ideas get you into the fall decorating spirit or give you some new ideas to add into your traditional fall decorating mix!
