5 Easy DIY Fall Decorating Projects To Warm Up Your Home This Season

It's officially fall, y'all! Time to break out the pumpkin spice everything, cozy up by the fire, and get crafty with some fun DIY fall decorating projects. Here are 5 easy DIY fall decorating projects to get you started.

1. DIY Fall Wreath

Fall is the perfect season for easy DIY projects! This post will show you how to make a simple and chic autumn wreath.

What you'll need:

-A grapevine wreath form (any size)

-Burlap ribbon (in various colors)


-Hot glue gun

Step 1: Cut your ribbon into strips that are about 2-3 inches wide. You will need enough ribbon to go around your grapevine wreath form multiple times.

Step 2: Attach the ribbon using hot glue at the bottom of the wreath. Make sure to overlap the ribbon slightly so that it's secure. Keep going until the entire wreath is covered in ribbon.

Step 3: Trim any excess ribbon from the top of the wreath. You can also add a bow or other embellishments if desired. Finally, hang your new autumn wreath on your front door and enjoy!

2. Pumpkin Topiary

This project is perfect for anyone who loves pumpkins but doesn't want the hassle of carving them. You'll need three small pumpkins (natural or artificial), three candlesticks or other tall objects to use as a base, hot glue and glue gun, ribbon, and any other fall-themed decorations you'd like to add. Start by attaching the pumpkins to the candlesticks with hot glue. Then, wrap the entire arrangement in ribbon, securing it with more hot glue as needed. Finally, add any final touches like leaves or berries. This cute pumpkin topiary would look great on a front porch or entryway table.

3. Fall Mason Jars

Mason jars are versatile—you can use them for just about anything! For this project, you'll need mason jars in various sizes (small jelly jars work well), fake leaves in multiple colors and sizes, hot glue and glue gun, twine or raffia, and battery-operated candles. Start by attaching the leaves to the outside of the jars with hot glue. Once all of the jars are covered, wrap twine or raffia around the neck of each jar and tie it in a bow. Finally, add a battery-operated candle to each jar, turn off the lights, and enjoy your beautiful DIY fall lanterns! I also have this great video using Mason Jars, where I paint them with Fusions Ultra Grip and Fusion Paint in Picket Fence. The Ultra Grip allows the paint to adhere to the jar and not chip away, so you can enjoy it for years to come.

4. Thanksgiving Table Runner

Dress up your Thanksgiving table with this easy DIY project. You'll need a length of burlap fabric (at least 2 yards), scissors, hot glue and glue gun, artificial leaves in various colors and sizes (enough to cover the length of fabric), twine or raffia, acorns or other small Thanksgiving-themed decorations. First, cut your burlap fabric to the desired size for your table runner. Then attach the leaves to the fabric with hot glue, starting at one end and working your way down the length of the material until it is completely covered. Once all the leaves are in place, wrap twine or raffia around the runner's edges and tie it in a bow. Finally, add any final touches, like acorns or berries, along the runner's center for extra interest. Your Thanksgiving table will look gorgeous!

5. Fall Candle Holder

This project is so simple but makes such a big impact! You'll need a clear glass vase or jar (any size will do), fake leaves in various colors (enough to cover the outside of the vase), hot glue and glue gun, twine or raffia, battery-operated candles (tea lights work well). Start by attaching the fake leaves to the outside of the vase with hot glue. Once the vase is covered, wrap twine or raffia around the neck of the vase, tying it in a knot at the top, then add any final touches like acorns, berries, or pinecones. Finally, place battery-operated candles inside the vase, turn off the lights, and enjoy your beautiful new fall decoration!
