Decorating the exterior or interior of your home for the fall is very simple to do. This article will give you some suggestions for setting the tone with your decor.
Corn Stalk Bundles: Bundle about thirty stalks together and tie them around the top fourth with twine. Place them in your front yard and spread them out at the bottom. It will look like a tee pee. Place some pumpkins around the bottom for show.
Straw Bales: Spread out loose straw for a base. Then place three bales together. Stack one on top of two. Now place some brightly colored leaves over the base and the bales. Again, use pumpkins along the base.
Indian Corn: Pull the shucks back to expose the colored kernels. Bundle three of them together and secure them to porch pillars, mail box posts and tree trunks. You can even hang one on each side of your front door.
Candles and Wine Bottles: Place candles and wine bottles together on a fireplace mantle or on a counter top. Use color from both items to accent the fall season. When it comes to candles, you can't beat the fragrance. You are actually showcasing for the three senses of sight, smell and taste.
Horn of Plenty: Visit a craft store and get a basket horn. Fill it with gourds, fruit and veggies. If you are worried that they will spoil, get some plastic fruit and veggie figurines. Always overfill the horn. Set your display on a counter top , shelf or mantle.
Apple Candles: Find three bright red apples and shine them up. Cut out the top 1/3 by the stem. Take three long stem candles and put some wax paper around the bottom of them. Now place the candles on a pie tin and strategically place them.
These are simple things that don't cost much that can add a Fall Decor to your home.
