Work with all the sensesWith crisp cider and melt-in-your-mouth cider doughnuts, clove and cinnamon sprinkled on a thousand different pumpkin drinks, the crunch of leaves fallen and sight of striking red, orange, and yellow leaves fell this time of year touches every one of your senses.
The most important lesson of how to decorate your home for fall is to get yourself in the mood by baking a pumpkin loaf or brewing a pot of delicious cranberry tea. Before you start to decorate for autumn, take a deep breath, curl up under your favorite knit blanket and make a list of what you love most. Include scents, moods, thoughts, and moments.
Some things on this list, like flavors and seasonal fruits, will lend themselves to multiple projects. If you love sweetened cranberries, apples, or roasted pumpkin seeds, set out a leaf tray filled with them. At night, light a scented candle and suds up with a seasonally-scented soap.
Wall collageA single framed pressed leaf hung on the wall looks lonely. Hit up a few second-hand stores or flea markets for an assortment of unique frames. Fill a few with pressed leaves, a few with black and white photographs of fallish scenes, and quotes about this time. Hang them on the same wall in a cluster at various heights.
Handmade seat cushionsThe sudden drop in temperature that follows summer brings out the crafter in many DIYers. One simple, the fast project is to make new seat cushions for hard dining room chairs. Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner or inviting friends over to watch the game, this is a fun time of year to entertain. Seat cushions make the hardest chairs more comfortable. Choose warm autumn-inspired fabrics.
Put a wreath on itWreaths are fun to make because they’re simple to construct and a blank canvas to decorate. Twist together some moss and bendy branches, secure them with twine and decorate with small pumpkins and flowers. Hang the wreath on the front door, over the fireplace, hall mirror, or any corner that needs a little special something.
Layer upDressing for cool mornings, warm interiors, and cooler evenings calls for some practiced layering. Break out the scarves and jackets that are thick enough to keep you cozy while loose enough for a sweater underneath. Walkthrough the rooms you spend time relaxing in and layer them in the same way.
Throw a woven rug on the floor to warm your feet, drape a cozy wool blanket over your favorite chair so you can enjoy a cup of tea curled up underneath with the window open. Layers of warmth in cool seasons make a home more inviting. They enhance the atmosphere by encouraging guests to stay awhile.
