What shape is your fall decor in? That’s right, we said the f-word. With September 23rd’s arrival it’s official: fall is here. We’ve already talked about simple chores homeowners can do to protect their properties from the effects of cooler weather, but the start of fall means more than home maintenance – it’s also time to update our decor.

It’s too soon for most to go full on Halloween in their space, (if you have, no judgement from us – we’re big fans of this spooky holiday), but many will wait until closer to the 31st to light their jack-o-lanterns. So what do you do in the meantime? We’ve compiled a list of cute and clever fall decor ideas you can incorporate into your home to help get everyone in the autumnal spirit.

Pumpkin Planters – We are absolutely loving this succulent pumpkin combination. The vibrant orange of the pumpkin goes so well with the rich greens and reds of the succulents and the earthy moss they sit on. This simple craft makes for a lovely centerpiece but is also sturdy enough to be placed on your porch or walkway. What a nice way to welcome fall into your home!
Branch Out! – How cute is this foliage-inspired craft? This is a fun project for the whole family to tackle and the end result is a truly unique piece to display in your home. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Chalk-Gourds – Prefer to paint, rather than carve, your pumpkin? This DIY should be right up your alley! Instead of applying a scene or face to your gourd, use chalkboard paint. This way you can write messages and draw designs again and again (all the way through to Thanksgiving!).

Gorgeous Gourds – Set an autumnal moods in any space with these sweet candle holders. We all already know how fun it is to create displays with fall gourds; image what you could do with them if they were candle holders! Adding a little seasonal spice to your table setting will be a breeze with these guys!

Autumn Address – The mail carrier will always be able to find your house (and will leave it with lots of fall spirit) when you incorporate this playful pumpkin into your porch decor! We’re especially fond of this project because you can leave it out for so long since it’ll work well with Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations.
