6 Easy Indoor Fall Decorations to Add to Your Decorating Repertoire

1. Replace Your Summer Flowers with Fall Colored Leaves and Flowers

This is one of the easiest ways to give your home a feeling of Fall. Purchase a few clumps of fall flowers and fake leaves like these and add them to vases.

One of my favorite places to get fall leaves and flowers is the dollar store. They have a good selection for a great price.

2. Decorate with Fall Leaves

Use Fall leaves to add decorations to your home.

You can lay vines of Fall leaves on shelves amidst your other decor or layer it behind glass windows or picture frames to add a fun Fall pop of color.

3. Fill a Jar with Fall

Fill a clear vase with pumpkins, gourds, fall leaves, marbles and lights! This is such a beautiful and simple way to make a clear glass vase into an elegant fall centerpiece.

Add glass marbles to the bottom of a clear glass vase, and then layer leaves, pumpkins, and wooden balls on top. Push small led lights down into the jar to add a warm glow at night.

4. Make Indoor Fall Decorations out of Hangers

You can use wire hangers to make these diy wire pumpkins. This is a great way to use up some of the wire hangers you might have laying around your house and they add so much dimension to your indoor fall decorations. They took less than an hour for me to make.

Along the same lines, you can use a wire hanger to make a simple table wreath. I bent the wire hanger into a pumpkin shape and then wrapped a leaf vine and led leaf lights around it for a simple yet beautiful table decoration.

5. Add a Few Pumpkins

There is something about pumpkins that just screams fall.

Setting a few small pumpkins next to your normal decor makes an ordinary object seem more magical and fall like. Using them as part of your indoor fall decorations is an easy way to create a fall experience inside.

You can also make your own. This simple DIY Fall Wreath took me about an hour to make and cost less than $5. (If you purchase the flowers instead of making them, it will take even less time.)
