I've been searching the internet for ideas to add some touches of fall to my home and started looking back on how I've decorated my home in the years past. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Fall posts with you! Here are some beautiful fall decorating ideas for your home.
I know it's only August, but fall has been peeking around the corner for the past few weeks.
Just go to your local craft store and you'll be in a sea of the typical rust, orange and maroon autumn color palette.
Maybe I'm just eager to get to those cooler temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes, or afternoon walks hearing the leaves crunch under my feet.
But I thought I would jump on the upcoming season early this year.
If you've been to my blog before, then you know I love to save money whenever I can.
So that means going back and looking at my old decor to find ideas to repurpose what I already own. I gathered those together in one post to inspire you for fall!

Front Porch Decor
What better way to welcome someone to your home that with a festive entry!
Here are some fall porch ideas you may like.
Adding these corn stalks to our front door is a great way to usher in the autumn season. You could also use hay bales!
But a neutral color scheme with texture is perfect for this time of year.
This was our front porch from last year. We used a combination of white and green heirloom pumpkins with some simple potted mums in bushel baskets.
I love how they are tumbling down our front steps.
Corn Husks, Fall leaves, an old rake or a potted mum are simple ways you can add fall harvest to your front porch.
Wreaths are a great way to update each holiday season.
I have made many wreaths over the years, and some of the ones for fall are my favorites!
Here are a few of my fall wreath favorites that I have created.
This fun DIY wreath I made using hot glue and mini pumpkins was an easy way to add touches of the fall season to my home office.
I loved the overall look of the variety of deep greens!
Here's another use of this big tobacco basket. I love the rustic look they offer and love to display them in my home. Using tobacco baskets is one of my unique decorating ideas that I enjoy.
This simple magnolia leaf wreath was a perfect backdrop for this fun painted wooden sign.
Sometimes the simple concepts are the prettiest - like this next one!
One of the different ways to make wreaths is to use a garland wrapped around a wreath form.
Not only is it an easy DIY, but it's also a great idea to add natural elements to your home in a beautiful fall wreath.
Here is another garland wreath I made a few years back.
In my craft supplies, I have various sizes of wreaths that I change out throughout the year.
The mix of colors you can add always make me smile.
Decorating your dining room table is always a new way to add touches of the harvest season.
Tablescapes this time of year are a perfect way to add thanksgiving decor to your home.
Here are a few I've created over the years.
This assortment of pumpkins makes me smile. It's a mixture of real pumpkins and the faux kind as our fall centerpiece.
Don't you just want to sit and enjoy thanksgiving dinner here?
How about a splash of color? Touches of brass and rich colors of blue are what make this tablescape a happy one!
And if you take a closer look, you'll see some color diy fall miniature pumpkins that I'm sharing below, so keep reading!
A few years ago, I went for simplicity in my home, and that included my dining table.
I used an old scarf for the table runner and added some dried eucalyptus as the centerpiece.
Fall Fireplace Mantels
Nothing says cozy more than a good book while sipping warm coffee in front of your fireplace.
It's also a great way to display the colors of the season.
Here's how I showcased some of my autumn decor on our fireplace mantel.
This is a blast from the past from our Almost Farmhouse.
I stepped away from the traditional fall colors and added blue hues and burnt orange to my home.
Keeping with a simple theme, I wanted to focus on the warm woods in our family room.
You could use a large basket and cozy throw pillows for your fall decorations.
Last year, I added blue bottles as a unique color for my decorating theme.
Faux greenery and garland made decorating my mantel super simple.
And I'm all about easy peasy! And I love that wicker basket with the fern inside.
Fall Home Decor
You can think beyond the traditional look of fall with an orange pumpkin, straw bales, scarecrows and small gourds when you are looking for beautiful fall decorating ideas.
Creating a cohesive look with different colors is something to explore.
Check out these ideas.
These burlap leaves were a fun way to add some texture to my decor.
The contrast between the rough burlap and smooth glass ball jars are stunning!
A few seasons back, I mentioned adding blues and oranges to my home.
It created such a warmth in our home that I may revisit this sometime again.
But if color isn't your thing, here's a muted palette I used last year. A simple display of pumpkins creates that fall look you want.
And varying different heights helps draw the eye to rest on the decor.
And I just love this pillow cover about October. I've used it many times.
Being an October baby, these pillow makes me smile!
Here's another simple look you can try. A seasonal pillow with a small pumpkin. Simple but still cozy.
Fall DIYs to Try
I am always buying the discounted fall decor from Hobby Lobby once the season ends and faux white pumpkins are my go to!
A colorful DIY fall project you could try are these fun crackle pumpkins.
These are super easy to make and I even have a video tutorial you can check out!
How about some fuzzy textures? Check out these DIY pumpkins I made last year.
I took some faux pumpkins and used hot glue to cover them with some fun yarn I found on clearance.
I love the softness it adds to my coffee table.
And speaking of yarn, I made these chunky knit pillow covers and there were super duper easy!
Even if you're a novice knitter - these are a great DIY project to start with.
