Labor Day has passed and the signs of summer are starting to fade. Temperatures are dropping, and fall is right around the corner. Time to dust off the pumpkin candles and pull out your stash of cozy sweaters. There’s nothing like fall—pumpkin spice lattes, soft comforting fabrics, and (continued) cozy nights at home. As the seasons change, it’s always fun to change up your home décor, too! There are so many ways to add pops of fall throughout your house that are simple and festive. From pumpkins to garland, here are some easy ways to add fall décor to your home without breaking the bank.
What’s the first thing you think of when you think about fall? Pumpkins of course! You can go for the real thing and get a fresh pumpkin or two, or there are many other options if you’d rather have something that can be re-used each year. Target is a great place to find stylish faux pumpkins made from all types of materials in lots of fun colors. This year, our pick is the raffia pumpkin for a natural, boho vibe. Add pumpkins to your front door, entryway, or on any shelf throughout your house for a simple and festive accent.

Some people may associate garland with Christmas, but we’re not talking about tinsel or pine. Opt for something colorful and warm that resembles the changing leaves on trees as we transition into Fall. Drape your garland over your fireplace mantle, on your dining table like a table runner, or even over a large mirror.

Fall is all about feeling cozy, and there’s nothing like a deliciously warm smelling candle to get you in the mood for the season. Try a scent like vanilla or cinnamon with a woody base to make you feel extra snuggled while you’re sipping cider on your sofa.

Change out your doormat with the seasons! This is such a simple way to change up your décor for the fall. There are so many cute fall doormats, from buffalo plaid prints to cute sayings like “Thankful” or “Hey Pumpkin.” Try layering a larger plaid mat under your doormat for a fun pop of print.

Sticking with the cozy theme, changing the throw pillows on your bed or sofa is another easy way to add seasonal festivity to your home. If you don’t want to buy new pillows, adding pillow covers over your current pillows is a great alternative. Look for covers in rich fall colors like burgundy and marigold or in soft textures like corduroy and suede.
