  1. Wreaths


    When people think of wreaths, they tend to associate them with Christmas. Although many people do hang wreaths on their doors around Christmas, they are actually a great decoration for the fall season. This is because you can now purchase wreaths that are made out various materials, including sticks, leaves, pinecones and many other things that remind people of fall.
  2. Pumpkins


    Carving pumpkins has become something that friends and families do together every year. It is something that is fun and brings people together, which is what the holiday season is about. Whether you carve them or not, placing a few pumpkins outside of your home is festive and can really add a bit of color to your home's outdoor decor.

  6. Marquee letters


    Why not use a few marquee letters to remind everyone what season it is? You can head to any craft store and pick up these letters to spell out pretty much whatever you want. Hang them on the wall or place them on the mantel.
  7. Lanterns


    People are often looking for something fun, but simple when they are decorating. This has often led them to lanterns.

For fall, you can place leaves and colorful candles inside and enjoy the warm, cozy feeling everyday of the season.

  9. Cornucopia


    This is a tradition decoration, but it can still really make it feel like fall. This decorative piece is typically place on the table, but you can put it on the mantel, outside or even on an end table. With its bright colors, people will be sure to see it no matter where it is placed.
