1. Pumpkin decoration/carving
Carving pumpkins is the most popular DIY decor item in Autumn, however, you don’t need to be an expert carver to have a lovely pumpkin decoration in your home. This collection of Jack-O-Lantern Tips and Inspiration by Homesteading will definitely get you in the mood for autumn and ready to decorate your home.

Mason jars are really popular for DIY decor items and work very well. You can also use jars that you have just standing around the house. Remove the labels from your finished pickles or jam (or whatever) jar and use this awesome autumn leaf jar.

Pinecones also make great autumn decorations. From the DIY decor items on this list, this golden pinecone garland by Arts and Classy is probably one of my favourites. It’s an easy idea, which would make an amazing decor item for any household.

DIY decor items with real autumn leaves are beautiful. However, you can still make great autumn decorations if you don’t want to bring real leaves inside (since it may result in more cleaning and/or maintenance).
