Start early-Decorations for the Fall

Updated on August 20, 2015

Seasons

As you know Fall will be here soon. And for some Fall isn't the most amazing season, but it's still extremely fun to decorate. There is an approach on how to go about making Fall one of your favorite seasons; personally Fall and Winter are my favorite but I digress.

The first thing you should know is there are some main colors to keep in mind. Reds, oranges, browns and maybe even some greens. Think of the change of colors in leaves before they, you know, fall.

Some ideas

As we head into fall you may want to start to add things to warm up your home. In the above photo we have a couple of mason jars that are illuminating the leaves encircled around them.

You could make these at home yourself:

A couple of mason jars, leaves, craft glue: clear if possible, paint brush, some tea lights. Optional: frosted spray paint.

In order for true transparency I would recommend using real leaves, keep in mind they will become very brittle over time and you will need to be careful when gluing so try to use the freshest leaf possible. To make it easier you can use fake leaves you can find at craft stores and it will work fine, just know they won't be as transparent.

The optional frosted spray paint is to give a duller glow so it's warmer not bright. If you pick the frost make sure you spray a light coat on the mason jars first and leave them over night to dry because they will be sticky.

For the leaves, you will take the craft glue and with the paintbrush, smooth paint over the back of the leaves. Begin placing them how you would like around the mason jar. Cover enough so when lit, you will receive a healthy looking glow. Let dry over night. When you're ready you can put your tea lights in and light. You can use candles too if you prefer.

It's the little things

There are small ways of finding things that compliment each other. The berries you see in the above picture can be found in a crafts store and you can place small amounts in little vases.

You can make wreaths of wheat and straw, and little centerpieces as well.

How about hay bales for the front yard. Small ones with some pumpkins can had some season to your yard.

Segue

The above photo is a perfect example of the segue between fall and halloween. It's subtle, it only contains hints and you can still use it after halloween. Notice the lanterns, the crow and dead leaves.

Fall is a long season and you won't really have to replace it until after thanksgiving. You can pick up almost anything you need at a crafts store. If you can also pick up things at other stores like Kirkland, or Target.

Love those colorful corn

I have to say I am obsessed with these colorful corn. It's so seasonal. Those and wheat can be combined to make some very wonderful decor. They make great centerpieces and some people even use them to make wreaths, although I find it a bit too much.
