(BALTIMORE) Now that the temperature is starting to cool down, it is time to bring those wonderful Fall colors from outdoors into your home.

The colors of Fall are great for making a home feel welcoming and cozy. With these simple DIY projects you’ll be sure to incorporate one or more into your home to give it that extra warmth. After all, Fall is the season to cuddle under a blanket with a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate.

Whether you want to go outside and collect leaves and acorns or go shopping for your supplies, you’ll find something here that will help you transform your home for the Fall.

Create a Pumpkin Display

Pumpkins are the epitome of all things Fall. With this simple DIY project you can elevate a simple pumpkin into Fall décor that matches the aesthetic of your home.


  • Different sized pumpkins
  • Paint or spray paint
  • Paint brush
  • Stencils
  • Cotton stems and wheat bundles
  • Galvanized bucket

Place the painted pumpkins in the bucket and fill it out with the cotton stems and wheat bundles. Dress up the bucket with the paint and stencils to give it that last personal touch.

Sunflower Wreath

Another great idea to incorporate into your home that screams Fall is sunflowers. Their bright yellow color makes them fit right in with the color palette of Fall.


  • Green, yellow, and brown burlap
  • Wire wreath frame
  • Sheet of stiff plastic canvas
  • Beige chenille stems
  • Two zip ties
  • Mat and rotary cutter

This DIY project does take a bit more time but the outcome is beautiful. Follow the steps of this tutorial and you are going to have a great centerpiece for your door.

Rustic Mason Jars

Mason jars are something most people have randomly around the house or can find at a dollar store. They are a very simple household item that can be elevated into chic décor.


  • Mason jars
  • White spray paint
  • Black lettering
  • Any kind of autumn flowers

Spray paint the mason jars and then fill them with your choice of flowers. You can add the black lettering to spell out whatever you like and place them around your home.

Glitter Acorns

Who doesn't love a bit of sparkle in their home. Glitter acorns can be placed anywhere around the house to add a bit of charm.


  • Acorns
  • Glitter
  • Spray paint

For these glitter acorns you have a couple of different options. You can glitter the top and leave the bottom as is or spray paint it, or glitter the entire acorn. Place these in a bowl, jar, or vase and add to your Fall décor.

Wool Candy Corn

Candy corn is a traditional staple of the autumn months that can be found at pumpkin patches and on doorsteps during Halloween.


  • Styrofoam cone shapes
  • White, orange and yellow wool
  • Hot glue gun

Take your Styrofoam cones, apply hot glue around them and wrap the wool around them to match a candy corn. They can be placed indoors or outdoors.

Decorated Wine Bottle

A lot of people like to enjoy a glass of wine after a long day so it makes sense to repurpose all those wine bottles into a decorative item for your home. They are also great for displaying flowers with longer stems.


  • Wine bottles
  • Spray paint
  • Long stem flowers or twigs

Once the bottles are empty, clean them out and let them dry before spray painting them. After this is done you can do any additional decorations that you like and then finish them off by adding flowers or stems with a pop of color.
