Warm Up Your Fall

 Quick Tips for Autumn Decor

By Colleen Langenfeld

Enjoying these crisp nights and bright days of autumn? Bring that beauty into your home with these quick and easy decor ideas.

- Add or change the wreath on your front door to feature warm, earthy tones and textures.

- Hang a flower bucket instead of a wreath and fill with sturdy pinecones and colorful ears of corn.

- Swap out the summer candles and potpourri jars in your home with fall scents.

- Whip up an easy autumn centerpiece in a portable container that you can move from place to place in your home to add warmth wherever you are.

- Need an idea for that easy autumn centerpiece mentioned above? Clear-spray inexpensive gourds and small pumpkins and toss casually into a cloth-lined wrought-iron container. Or use a beautiful bowl. Or a much-loved wicker basket. You get the idea.

- Move the shepherd's crook from your garden to near your front door. Hang a decorative fall sign you purchase from your local discount or craft store.

- Replace the rug at your front door with one that reflects the incredible fall colors found in nature.

- Invest in one decorative tray for each season or a tray you can embellish. A 'leaf' tray will look beautiful on your table right up to the holidays!

- Change the appearance easily of baskets you use around your home by adding seasonal ribbons and bows.

- If you use decorative throw pillows, you can increase their value by using seasonal pillow covers to change looks fast throughout the year without needing to store excess bulky pillows.

- Consider a new windchime or windsock for your front patio. Choose from a neutral or fall theme.

You can do it! Brighten up your home with touches of the season. A small amount of time invested now can bring months of pleasant echoes throughout your family's home!
