Who else love decorating for Fall…raise your hands!! I know it’s Summer but I’m already thinking about Fall- maybe it’s the crazy humidity or it could be the bunnies and chipmunks wreaking havoc in my garden but I’m starting to dream about crisp air and pumpkins from the farm down the street from me!
Here’s a look at my 5 easy ways to decorate for Fall with some of my favorite Fall decor looks from the past few years.
1. Easy Fall Shelf Displays
One easy way to decorate for Fall is to style a shelf in your home. Here are a few of my favorite shelves that I styled for Fall.
I just love a white pumpkin…I think they are my favorite kind! White pumpkins fit into so many design styles; they look just as pretty in a farmhouse setting as they do in French country home. I tend to lean towards coastal cottage style here at the Cottage On Bunker Hill.
You can mix them with natural elements like I did here. I mixed in dried hydrangeas from my garden with pine cones I had foraged. To add to the natural, rustic style I added burlap to my hand painted sign and a garland of grapevine running across the shelf.
This was my favorite! I hand painted my sign from one I had seen on Pinterest. I used all the traditional Autumn colors; orange, brown, cream, and red. I made this simple design by starting with a berry pip Fall garland on the shelf. I added a grapevine pumpkin and 2 white corn husk pumpkins and then popped in apple and pumpkin floral picks, I finished it off by adding two loose pumpkins to fill in the gaps.

2. Easy Tabletop Fall Decor
I go all in for Fall! I just have to look out my windows and I’m surrounded by so many amazing Fall colors that it’s hard not to be inspired!
This more glam Fall display started with an antique frame and I added a glittery berry pip garland as the base. I wanted a brown & green theme and used velvet pumpkins, sparkling mini pumpkins, and finished it all off with green mosses and pine cones.
My velvet pumpkins took on a more farmhouse feel when I added them to a galvanized tiered tray with mini pumpkins and greenery.

3. Dried Hydrangeas For Easy Fall Decorating
I’m lucky enough to live in a part of the country where we can grow hydrangeas! I personally love blue hydrangeas and grow the prettiest Endless Summer variety in front of my house.
By late Summer the blossoms start to change color and their texture becomes more papery; this is the time I cut some of the prettiest stems for drying. You can see my super easy method for drying hydrangeas here.
The dried hydrangea stems are the perfect partner for white, blue, or green pumpkins. Here are some of the easy ways I used hydrangeas to decorate for Fall.
This table centerpiece is so simple to put together…seriously, I think it took 2 minutes! I used a few silvery green stems to fill the bottom of the galvanized container, then I popped in 3 mini pumpkins, tucked in the dried hydrangea stems, tossed in pine cones, and nestled some grapevine into the back for a little height.
Above a kitchen hutch I also used a few stems of dried hydrangeas.
I tucked a rope bowl filled with dried hydrangeas into a book shelf. The rope bowl is an easy DIY too!
4. Fall Door Decor
This Dollar Tree DIY is one of the most popular posts I have on my site! For just a couple of dollars and under and hour you can make one for your front door!
I almost forgot about this wreath! This was another DIY wreath using Walmart flowers and stems. It’s so easy to achieve a high end look on a small budget if you know where to shop! Walmart, Dollar Tree, and Christmas Tree Shops are my go to spots for Fall decor.
It’s nice to change things up on your doors and use something besides a wreath to decorate. I have had this basket from Antique Farmhouse for a few years and have uses it in countless ways! I added a few Fall floral picks and a raffia ribbon and hung it on my garage entryway door.
5. Fall Front Porch
My 2019 front porch. It was a simple display last year.
This was the Fall front porch at my old house. It was such a great area to decorate! I mixed all the traditional Fall colors with a few white pumpkins tucked in.
I even snuck in some fake pumpkins on the porch! The trick to making that foam white pumpkin look more realistic was to add some dark brown paint in the crevices and wipe a little antiquing wax over the entire thing.
Orange pumpkins, mums, and corn stalks made this a very traditional take on Fall.
I’m so looking forward to taking out my bins of all my Fall goodness now!!! I hope I gave you a little bit of inspiration too!!
Happy Fall Y’All🍁
