1. Shop your home to create a beautiful fall tablescape

Creating fall tablescapes can be as simple as pulling from what is around you.

3. Easily create fall DIY decor with items you already own

Adding seasonal decor doesn’t have to break the bank. By pulling together items you already own with warm earth tones and adding a few natural elements, you can bring the season of fall indoors.

4. DIY faux pumpkin arrangement

To create this easy fall DIY decor, you’ll first need to buy a faux pumpkin and floral stems. Then cut out a small circle around the stem of the pumpkin and remove the stem to expose the styrofoam. Finally, assemble the flowers by poking the end of the stems into the foam, filling in around the pumpkin center. If styrofoam shows, you can conceal it with green moss. – The Home Envy

Have some fun and decorate your pumpkins a little differently this year with foil. Foiling a pumpkin is easier than you think.

14. Repurpose outdoor items for your festive centerpiece

As the days shorten and the weather starts to cool, entertaining makes a move indoors. Empty the terracotta pots from your patio (or any container), bring them inside to repurpose as a casual and charming candlestick collection on your dining room table. Flip them upside down, place the saucers on top, and set a wide pillar candle in the saucer. Tuck fall leaves and a few gourds or small pumpkins between the candlesticks. And just like that, you have a festive centerpiece to celebrate the season in style. – Kehoe Designs

15. Mop head fall pumpkin decor

You can create this super cute fall DIY decor by using a simple mophead and styrofoam pumpkin from the dollar store. Glue the mop head in sections onto your pumpkin and embellish with a stick from the yard for the stem. Easiest project ever. – Southern Crush at Home

As a finishing touch, display candles and other decors atop the plaque. – The Artful Stencil
