One of the best seasons to decorate your house is the fall! It’s important to be on the look out for the trendiest fall decor ideas so that you (and your home) are ready to go for the the autumn season. Whether you are preparing for spooky season or going for that traditional fall look, it is always a blast to decorate your home for the fall season. These fall decor ideas will surely inspire you to create your own unique fall style for you home!
1) Door Mat
One of the best ways to welcome someone into your home is to show your favorite fall-themed door mat! This is a great starting point when you are beginning to decorate the outdoors of your home for the fall season. Having a festive door mat is adorable and so inviting for any guest you invite over in the autumn season.
2) Fall Colored Flowers
One perfect way to get your house ready for the fall is to decorate the outside of your house with fall colored flowers and plants. Reds, yellows, oranges, and browns are the ideal color combination for your outdoor flower pots! And, if we can make a recommendation, chrysanthemums, or “mums” for short, are the go-to for any fall-themed look.
3) Porch Seating Decor
If you have a front porch swing or chair, you can add to the fall spirit by decorating the seats with fall themed pillows, pads, and blankets. This will totally add to the cozy fall aesthetic that you’re looking for! It’s the little touches that make fall home decor so warm and adorable.
4) Fall Door Wreath
Wreaths are not just meant for the winter season. In fact, wreaths are one of the best fall decor ideas you can invest in for your outdoor decorations this fall season. Fall wreaths usually boast fall-themed ribbons and harvested plants to go along with the autumn aesthetic.
5) Pumpkins On The Stairs
Pumpkins are the most essential fall decor items for your home, and one of the best places to put your pumpkins is on the steps leading up to your house. It is recommended that you buy these pumpkins early and use them as decorations until close to Halloween when you can then carve them!
If you are wanting to decorate your home with a spooky theme for the fall, decorating with fake cobwebs is a great way to keep your decorations fun, but classy. There is a fine line between tacky Halloween decorations and cute, spooky-themed fall decor! Cobwebs are a great way to keep the spooky vibes without being tacky!
7) Floating Witch Hats
Okay, this is seriously an adorable way to keep the fall magic alive on your front porch! Hanging witch hats on your covered front porch is another way you can give off a spooky vibe. It is also a cute outdoor fall party decoration idea!
8) Door Garland
A fall-themed door garland is a great way to decorate your home for the season! Garlands that are strung with red, orange, and brown leaves that elegantly drape along the front doors of your home are very cute and an easy way to decorate for the season.
9) Black & White Checkers
The black and white checkered pattern is super cute to incorporate into your decorations during the fall season. You can play around with how you wish to decorate with this pattern, as the options are truly endless. A few ideas could be including the pattern on your seat cushions, ribbons, pillows, or signs.
If you are going to add a scarecrow to your list of fall decor ideas, make sure you do it right! The key is to not have a scarecrow that looks scary. Instead, you should aim to have a subtle, rustic scarecrow resting amongst your fall flowers and plants. Trust us, this is a fabulous fall decor item.
If you have any outdoor seating, then you should definitely take advantage of having a woven blanket draped over it. This gives off the cozy vibes! And, besides, who doesn’t love cozy-ing up with a heavy blanket on a chilly night?
12) White Pumpkins
If you are looking for your fall decor to last the entire fall season (even after Halloween), it is recommended that you also decorate with white pumpkins. White is the minimalist fall decor vibe, and makes for the perfect decoration transition from fall to winter.
13) Pumpkin Pathway
This is such a fun and welcoming way to decorate for the season! Simply line the pathway to your house with pumpkins! Bonus tip: You can have the whole neighborhood of kids come over to carve the pumpkins so that they are all unique and fun to look at on the way to your front door!
14) Orange Lights
To keep your house lit and in the fall spirit, string up some orange likes on your front porch. Arrange them like you would party lights rather than Christmas lights. Otherwise, people will think you decorated for the holidays too early.
15) Hay Stacks
One way to really scream fall in your outdoor home fall decor is to add a few haystacks by your front door and along the frontside of your home. Haystacks also serve as the perfect resting ground for other fall decorations, like pumpkins and scarecrows!
Using artificial or real cornstalks is another popular fall decor idea. You can arrange stalks around columns and side-railings of your house!
17) Stair Lights
Adding string lights, lanterns, and artificial candles creates a magical touch and perfect fall aesthetic in the entryway of your home. Feel free to decorate stairway railings and steps with these decorations and whatever else your heart desires.
18) Basket Flower Pots
Instead of using regular flower pots, a cute way to add a little fall flare is to place your flowers in a decorative basket!
19) Sitting Skeleton
If you have a seat on your front porch near the door, a charming way to add a spooky decoration is to have a skeleton sitting in that seat.
20) Flying Bats
What better way to decorate for the Halloween season than with bats?! We love Halloween, and we love this fall decor idea!
This fall decor idea is so cute. Leaning a few broomsticks alongside your door is a spooky and cute fall decoration! Do witches and wizards live here? Who knows!
22) Yard Decor
If you mix fall yard decor with your flowers and pumpkins, you’ll have the cutest array of yard decor! Feel free to get super creative with your yard this coming fall.
This is a great way to share your spooky messages! Simply hang a blackboard near your front door, and write whatever you’d like!
24) Fake Crows
If you’re feeling extra spooky, top off your outdoor fall decor with fake crows!
25) Fall Signs / Art
Invest in some seasonal outdoor wall art for the fall! You can often find fall-themed wall art and signs at home decor stores. They are the perfect touch to any fall-themed space.
