10 DIY Fall Decor Ideas

I know, I know…it’s a little early to talk about Fall decor but I didn’t really get to decorate last year because of the move and the start of my house projects, so I’m a little excited to get started. If you think I’m early, I went into Hobby Lobby last week to see what kind of Fall stuff they had (not much) and all of their Christmas stuff was already out.

DIY Fall Decor Ideas | www.chatfieldcourt.comI’m not decorating yet but I’ve been having some fun searching Pinterest for some DIY Fall decor ideas to try. My philosophy for Fall decorating is the same as my home decorating. Keep it simple, use what you love (and have) and use things from nature whenever you can.

Here are some great DIY Fall decor projects I’ve found to inspire you for the upcoming season. Please pin from original posts.

Is it too early to talk about Fall decorating? Are you thinking about Fall yet or are you in denial that it’s fast approaching (after the horrible winter we had last year)?

    Man oh man, I can’t wait until I retire! What great fall ideas! You know I’ve been kicking around the idea of painting my dining room set and the photo from Craftberry Bush shows the china cabinet painted white. I like it! I may just do that now. What do you think, Kristi?

    I’m getting in the fall decorating mood, but I’m not quite ready to let summer go. I will probably wait until after Labor Day to start decorating. I’ll be off that week so it will be a good time to start.

    Like the chalk painted pumpkins too and the bedspread pumpkins!

      Hi MJ. I think that your hutch and dining room set would look great painted! Such a huge job though. 😉

      I’m not ready for the summer weather to be over either. I’m worried about what winter will bring. I guess we can’t stop it though.

      Thanks so much for stopping by today. I always appreciate it!

    I am in the process of moving right now so Fall decorating hasn’t come to mind. I for one am ready for Fall since I live in Florida and it was 100 on my back porch today. I love the canning ring and velvet pumpkins. The white ones are pretty cool too. Thanks for sharing.

      Sounds like you need some Fall weather right now Debbie. I lived in Florida for 7 years so I know what summer is like there, and you really don’t get a Fall season. I guess you’ll have to decorate, after you move, and make it feel like Fall. 😉

      Good luck with your move. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

    I love the fall leaf board! Thanks for these ideas. You said you dried the leaves between pieces of wax paper to preserve them?
    I need some more decorations, so thank you.

      Thanks Julie. I love the leaf board that the awesome Chris from Just a Girl did. Such a great idea. If you head over to see her you can find her tutorial.
      I appreciate your visit.

    Fall is my favourite time of year and I am ready for it after a very hot summer. On some of the trees, the leaves are already turning and just a few here and there fall to the ground. I’ve been wanting to dig out the fall wreath for the front door but may wait for just a bit.
    Great inspiration pics! The metallic pumpkins are different and fun. I’ve seen the fall and Halloween stuff creep into the stores but no Christmas yet. Geez, that’s rushing it isn’t it?

      I can’t believe they had their Christmas stuff out. It’s just too much! If I hadn’t gone in when I did, there would have been no Fall stuff left. I love Fall too but I am so not ready for summer to be over. I am absolutely dreading winter but I’m trying to enjoy the nice weather while we still have it.
      Glad you found some inspiration from the Fall decor post. I’ve come up with a few ideas myself.;)
      As always thanks so much for your visit.

    Happy that I’ve never been a judge, because if I had to choose which one I love the most, well that will/is hard for me to choose because I love them all. Each one is gorgeous. I too, am not ready for summer to end, although I love the fall decorations. I avoid going into the stores, because its ashame that the stores almost pushed thanksgiving decoration out the door. It’s mostly all about Christmas.

      Awww, you are too sweet, Ivory. Thanks for the nice comment. I agree with you about the holiday decor in the stores. It’s just awful that they put Christmas out in July. I stay out of them too.

      Thanks for stopping in and I hope you are having a good week!
