Decorating your house this fall has never been easier or more fun. Transforming your home can be both economical and stylish. Using simple crafts and projects, you can transform a home into an autumn wonderland.

 Using Natural Beauty

Add bits of nature to spice up your entryway or home. Use natural elements such as wicker, dried floral arrangements, and corn stalks. Here are some more ideas:

● Hang a warm autumn wreath on your front door
● Create a kitchen table display with pumpkins and leaves
● Try adding a rocking chair with a blanket and pumpkins to cozy up your front porch
● Decorate with corn husks to welcome your guests
● Try a leaf art craft to add a touch of the outdoors

 Using Fall Colors 

Nearly everyone’s favorite part of Fall is the changing colors. These warm color schemes are best to cozy up your home: 

● Use plenty of burnt orange in your decor 
● Add the red of a Sugar Maple tree to make key items pop
● Not everything has to be red and orange. Look for more color options to add balance to your home’s color.
● Try adding new wallpaper. See how this wallpaper turned this room into a fairytale cottage
