Super Easy Fall Decorating

fall leaves

Let’s make this easy! We all have our favorite vintage items that live in the kitchen, on the coffee table or on the front porch so I like to just redecorate those items for each season. Since I have not yet executed my own ideas for decorating this year, I found these ideas to share.  

For the coffee table, I think I’ll use my grandmother’s wooden dough bowl. A wooden dough bowl can be transformed for fall by simply adding faux fall leaves, pumpkins and a burlap ribbon.

I love these old wooden tool boxes on the farmhouse kitchen table.  Take a vintage tool tote and add fall silk flowers, bittersweet and berry picks and a few small faux pumpkins and you have an instant centerpiece. When it’s time to change seasons, just change out the decorations. So simple!

So let’s move out to the front porch and add a touch of fall there with a galvanized tub.  Add real pumpkins, Indian corn and bittersweet to a bed of straw or corn stalk husks. You can place any kind of filler in the bottom to raise your pieces to the top.

So now you have a touch of fall in three areas of your home and you didn’t break the bank or spend all your time decorating.  When the next season rolls around, just remove the fall related items and replace with Christmas decor.  

Finally, here’s a recipe for making your home smell like fall too!  Enjoy!

  1. Super ideas, Tina. I hadn’t really thought about decorating for fall yet because it’s still warm here….but your dough bowl photo inspired me. I have an empty one sitting on my hearth & with just a little effort, it will be a perfect fall centerpiece. Thanks for the nudge. 🙂

  2. Thank you Betty. That’s the one I am going to try too! I’m going to go over to the corn field behind my neighbor and “borrow” some of the leaves from the corn stalks to use in the bottom of the tub and tuck around the pumpkins and gourds.
