I think I say this every year, but fall is the best.
I love the crisp air, the falling leaves, the football, and the food. Fall is also the only season (other than Christmas – is “Christmas” a season?) where I actually go all-out decorating my home specifically for the time of year. I love to bust out all of my pumpkins and deep colors, and it’s so fun to see my home shift a bit along with the changing seasons.
I’ve done a couple of fall-related roundups before (see my post about great Thanksgiving tablescapes here and gorgeous fall decor you can find on Amazon here), but today I wanted to round up some fun DIY fall decor projects – they’re all pretty simple, and they’d all make a gorgeous addition to your home.
DIY Fall Decor Ideas
I love a good fall wreath, and I’m always a big fan of an out-of-the-box approach. This pretty basket-turned-wreath is a genius idea, and it woud look so charming hanging on a front door! I’m also a huge advocate for turning cheap, ugly dollar store pumpkins into gorgeous decor, and that pumpkin stack is such a smart way to do that! I’ll definitely be making one of those this season.
Cotton wreaths are so charming, and I honestly have no idea why I’ve never actually made one before – they are just so gorgeous! I love this simple one and it reminds me that I’d really like to start hanging wreaths inside my house on occasion. I’ve never had a great spot for one, but I’m going to have to work on that this season. Oh, and is there anything you love more than a basically free DIY project? That pumpkin created out of sticks is just plain adorable and it’s such a smart idea.
Velvet pumpkins never fail to make me smile – I think they’re such a sweet addition to any fall decor, and I love the pretty colors they always come in. I’ve never considered making my own, but this tutorial looks so simple I just might have to give it a shot. And, as far as the candles – we all know I love to make my own candles, so I’ll definitely be giving this a shot soon. I adore that wood bowl for the holder, too!
This simple Thanksgiving banner looks so pretty hanging in the window, and it’s just made with cheap letters you can get at the craft store! I never think to make my own banners like this (though I always love them when I see them at places like Target!), so I think this is a pretty smart idea! I also love the pretty DIY fall sign – I never feel like I can do something quite this cool looking, but the tutorial makes me feel like maaaaaybe I could tackle it!
I love this pretty Autumn sign – and if you’ve ever seen it before, then you’ll know that it’s an extra smart decor idea because you can flip the sign around and it becomes a Christmas decoration! I love a piece that can do double-duty, and it’s so nice to have a few things that can easily transition from fall to the Christmas season. I also love that pretty leather and wood sign – the combination of leather and rustic wood is just one of my favorite things ever, and this would look adorable hanging on a front door!
Are you feeling inspired yet? I’m antsy to try a few of these projects – fall is such a great time for a few DIYs (who doesn’t love crafting with pumpkins?!), so I have a feeling I might be using some of my down time to get a little creative!
Oh, and, of course, I can’t finish this post without sharing a few DIY fall decor ideas from my own archives!
