We’re in the middle of several new fall home decorating projects, but I wanted to share a few favorites from the past. I hope you enjoy them, and I look forward to sharing my new ideas soon! 🙂

For basically any seasonal decorating, I always turn to the great outdoors. It’s always been my biggest source for inspiration, and I love that you can use what you find for free. This log tealight candle holder is one of those projects. It provides great texture, charm and coziness. It can also be used throughout the seasons.

Another version, is our trio of tealight candle holders. They look great on bookshelves, styled with other items, or on a coffee table.

This DIY Apple Wreath is fabulous for adding texture and character. It’s also very easy to make, it just requires different sizes of faux apples. This is easily one of my favorite projects.

Just like the wreath, this Picture Frame to Chalkboard project was also easy to make. We have a bunch of old frames just laying around, and this frame has become a staple for my seasonal decorating. It’s versatility is endless.

And what would a little fall decorating be without pillows? They’re not only pretty, but extremely important for adding that cozy vibe we crave during fall and the winter months. This pillow can be used until Thanksgiving!

Another great option is Grain Sack Pillows. They are perfect for so many seasons. Grain sack material is a bit tricky to find, but doing a quick Etsy or E-bay search should produce options for buying them. These pillows are a staple in our home and I don’t think I could live without them. 🙂

And of course, we can’t forget my Denim Leaves. These guys are very versatile too! Use them as a place setting name card, as a group for a hanging banner, or even framed as wall decor. The uses are endless, as are the ways to make them. Use big leaves, little leaves, denim fabric, or plaid. They are entirely customizable.

I personally think Fall is one of the easiest seasons to decorate for. Not only is the outdoors bursting with color, foliage and decorating opportunities, but there are so many different fabrics, warm textures and overall “cozies” available to add throughout your home. Even if you only use one of these ideas, or none, I wish you happy Fall decorating!
