Smash the Pumpkins — These Fall Decor Ideas Are Sure To Stand Out

Cool weather, colorful leaves and a touch of something spooky in the air can mean just one thing — it’s fall, y’all. Whether you’re looking for the perfect atmosphere to drink some warm apple cider in or you just want to embrace your spooky side, these fall decor ideas have something for every autumn enjoyer.

Frame a Piece of Fall

Why should the beauty of fall have to stay outdoors? In just a few simple steps, you can press, frame and hang leaves to bring authentic fall color into your home. Try turning this autumn art project into a family activity by taking the kids out on a leaf hunt. With different leaf shapes and colors catching everyone’s eye, you’ll be sure to have a unique gallery wall.

Replace the Wreath

Dreaming of Christmas in November? Then it’s time to take it one step further than a fall wreath. With a garland of autumn leaves and a tomato cage, you can easily make a festive fall topiary. Set them up in your house for soft lighting at night or put them on the porch and spread the autumn cheer.

Bring the Farm to You

Whether it’s the corn mazes, pumpkin patches or apple picking, there’s something about a farm that just screams fall. Head to an antique store to find authentic pieces that capture the farm charm. Antique trucks, rusted water pails and metal farm animals will instantly make your space feel like fall. You can bring in some autumn colors by planting succulents in the pail and adding sunflowers and gourds to the display.

Create a Table Display

An over-the-table rod has unlimited decorating possibilities for the entire season. You can add orange and yellow garlands, wreaths and pinecones for a Thanksgiving feel, or make it spooky for Halloween with spiderwebs. If you’re using the rod outside, try stringing lights on it so it can be seen at any time of day.

Light Up Your Backyard

Speaking of lights, how about some lanterns? Get in the Halloween spirit by adding a few witch or ghoul-themed lanterns to your outdoor table display or around your fire pit. They’ll instantly set the mood for telling a few ghost stories. Want to transform your house into a haunted mansion? Try using a few candelabras.

Give Someone the Creeps

A fall decor list wouldn’t be complete without a Halloween decoration for the kids. Have a spooky good time this fall by adding these glowing bug jars to your trick-or-treat display. If bugs give you the creepy crawlies instead of just the creeps, try putting bats or monsters in the jars instead. In a world of jack-o’-lanterns, this glowing decor will be the talk of the neighborhood on Halloween night.
