Looking for simple fall decorating ideas? Especially ones that take only 10-minutes. Here’s an entire post of simple 10-minute fall decorating ideas.
I realized something the other day.
…I totally forgot about fall.
I love fall.
It’s like every Hallmark movie I’ve ever watched.
Just when I’m tired of summer, just when I want a little excitement and someone to show up and sweep me off my feet in a turtleneck and a hot chocolate stand…
…fall shows up with sweater weather.
But this year I’m all about simple fall.
Here are my simple 10-minute fall decorating ideas.
simple 10-minute fall decorating ideas
1. Create an urn display
Fill an urn with leaves from the yard (or Trader Joe’s if you don’t have a yard).
Stuff them down into the urn.
Layer a stack of pumpkins on top.
2. Glue on a book page leaf
Cut out a leaf from a book page.
Glue to the top of a pumpkin.
You can also make a wreath from those book page leaves, too.
3. Fill a toolbox with pumpkins
Buy a bag of inexpensive dollar store pumpkins.
Fill up a vintage toolbox.
Don’t waste your pumpkin space. Put the not-cute pumpkins on the bottom and scatter a few more expensive cuter ones on top.
Only you will know how cute all the pumpkins really are.
4. Add a little blue and white
I wasn’t sure about this one until I tried it.
Something about blue and white makes fall pop.
Pull out those blue and white dishes and mix some pumpkins in for a simple, easy, fresh display.
5. Make a creative display with wheat and burlap ribbon
Start with the easiest burlap bow in the world here.
Then stuff a few wheat stalks through the center.
Hang inside a picture frame or on the front of a hutch.
6. Fill a lantern with pumpkins
Open up the front of your lantern.
Fill with pumpkins.
total aside: if the pumpkins are real, please don’t forget about them (not that I’ve ever done that or anything)
7. Stack cutting boards
Looking for an easy mantel display?
Stack cutting boards.
Add leaves and a painted sign.
Hello nine minutes—I’m looking at you.
8. Tie on an acorn
I found these wood acorns in the dollar section.
I tied a ribbon around the stem (add a drop of glue to secure).
Then I looped the ribbon around a simple dollar store grapevine wreath.
9. Scatter your scrabble letters
I found an entire bag of scrabble letters with a hole in the top.
Use tiles like these or scrabble tiles from a yard sale.
You could make a banner for a wreath or scatter them on a table by the front door.
10. Put cornhusks on top of your hutch
Need a simple fall decorating ideas? Need some visual interest on your hutch?
Add a few corn husks to your display.
May your fall be full of joy.
May your fall be cute.
But most of all…
….may your fall sweep you off your feet with a pumpkin spice latte. 🙂
