Fall is a fantastic time that marks the transition from ice cream to sweater weather and the start of a long festive season. Although there are several creative ways to decorate for fall, the easiest way is to use decorations in classical fall colors such as browns, oranges, reds, and beige. Pumpkin, hay, fall wreaths, and DIY crafts are popular fall themes that you can also use to spice your home décor during fall.
You don’t have to shop for ready-made fall decorations as you can decorate your home using creative DIY craft projects found at Clarks Ace Hardware. Let’s explore creative ways to decorate your home for the fall season.
Pumpkins are one of the most versatile and affordable products that you can use to decorate your home for fall. The simple option is arranging different colors and sizes of pumpkins across different rooms or creating a porch pumpkin patch. You can purchase these different colors and sizes of pumpkins from Clarks Ace Hardware’s Ellicott City and Columbia garden centers.
However, you can develop creative designs and purchase an awl tool and spray paint from the Clarks Ace Hardware store for decorating your pumpkins. Instead of orange pumpkins, you can add your creative flair by decorating the pumpkin with contrasting colors such as gold, black, or green spray paint. You can create artistic designs by etching and craving different shapes and words on the pumpkin using an awl tool.
Hay Bale Decorations
A creative technique for decorating your home for fall is using hay bales purchased from Clarks Ace Hardware Ellicott City and Columbia garden centers. You can go simple and arrange pumpkins on top of stacked hay bales outside the house or cover them with blankets to create seats.
Otherwise, you can take your creativity a notch by staffing hay in clothes to create a scarecrow. Hay can also serve as a form of decoration by placing strands in etched pumpkins, pots, or buckets alongside fall flowers from Clarks Ace Hardware.
Colorful Live Goods Make for Great Decor
Brighten up your space with colorful chrysanthemums in red, yellow and orange. When arranging your mums, remember to cut the flowers when they are a half to two-thirds of the way open. Then, remove any leaves that will be submerged when added to the vase. For an extra fall touch, arrange your mums with other fall foliage, such as fall leaves, pansies, dried grains, etc.
Next, spruce up your front porch with bundled corn stalks on each side of the door. This one is especially simple. Browse corn stalks at our store and find about 4-5 stalks for each bundle. Then, tie them together, prop them up by your front food, and embellish them with pumpkins, flowers and other fall goods.
DIY Crafts to Welcome the Fall Season into Your Home
Fall decorating projects, especially DIY crafts, offer a fun way to express and explore your creative abilities. You can create beautiful decorations using DIY crafts, such as handmade fall theme signs with picture frames and gift cards purchased at Clarks Ace Hardware. Another simple DIY craft is filling mason jars with small fall-themed objects such as fall-color beads, acorns, candy, fake candles, dried foliage, or nuts.
You can also purchase artisanal pieces from the hardware store and arrange them alongside pumpkins to create DIY crafts fall theme decorations. Fall is associated with warmth and coziness, which you can achieve in your home by using fall-color string lights or lamps at Clarks Ace Hardware. Another DIY craft for introducing warm tones to your house is painting your house with Benjamin Moore paint purchased from Clark Ace Hardware.
