Fall Home Tour: 10 DIY Fall Decorating Ideas {for busy moms}


If you've been following along for awhile you know I've been decorating for fall since what feels like  the first of September August.  This year I made a lot of DIY fall decor so I thought I'd do a great big roundup and take you, my lovely readers, on a fall home tour.   Like a lot of you, I am a busy mom to two little ones, so I know DIY decorating ideas must be fast, easy and cheap.

You're welcome, in advance :)



Let's start outside where the front of our home finally has a little festive personality.  I made two pumpkin topiares out of real pumpkins and added a strand of lights for some extra sparkle.  I made a Trick or Treat sign out of scrap wood and gave my fall front door wreath a makeover by removing some of the flowers and adding the cute little burlap "welcome" bunting.


Moving inside...over the fireplace mantle in the living room, I made a larger 'FALL' banner out of burlap and cardstock.  Get the free printables here.


I decorated with a few of the 34,045,644 acorns my kids collected by drying and spray painting them.  (Click here for how to clean and dry acorns so you can decorate with them.)


I also put a few of the tree branch candle sticks I made from a fallen branch on the mantle and topped them with, of all things, gold and brown napkin rings.


Next to the fireplace, I have a few more pumpkins - including this junk mail stuffed burlap and gold pumpkin! He's one of my favorites.


Not gonna lie, my coffee table is kind of lame all.the.time because I have a two year old boy running around who likes to destroy everything all.the.time.  But, I did manage to put a few indestructible gourds and pumpkins in this chippy pot I got a while back at the craft store and it's a great pop of color (not to mention Blake-proof).


Moving into the dining room, I created a beautiful (and totally FREE) fall tablescape completely from items I already had on hand.  I love shopping my house before the store!  I even made the fringed burlap table runner because I'm a burlap-aholic and I always have it 'in stock.'


The kitchen table even got the fall treatment.  I used styrofoam pumpkins to make pumpkin tea lights.  I placed them on a piece of stained pallet board so they're easy and fast to move when my kids can't wait to grub like now!


How did you decorate for fall this year?  Share your ideas and your links in the comments below!

Thanks for stopping by 2IY! If you like what you see, we'd love for you to pin it!
