If you are one of those people who love colder weather and fall holidays as much as I do, then fall must be quite an exciting time of the year for you. You can practically smell the pumpkin spice in the air, which means you have to start thinking about the fall decoration. If you don’t know what to go with this year, take a look at these easy and beautiful DIY fall projects.

Fill your home with cinnamon aroma

If you want your home to smell like holidays, you can make a beautiful and delicious cinnamon stick candle holder. It’s a very easy and quick little project. You only need a vanilla-scented candle, cinnamon sticks and some yarn. Tie the cinnamon sticks around the candle, and while they burn, they will fill your home with scents of gentle vanilla and spicy cinnamon.

Make a fall table centerpiece

If you want to give your dining table a little fall makeover, you’re in luck. There are hundreds of fun and easy tutorials on the internet, but the one I love the most is about how to make a super interesting planter centerpiece filled with candles, pumpkins, berry garlands and Spanish moss. You can even make a box for your goodies from scratch, but I’m not particularly handy with tools, so I used an old wooden planter I had in the garage.

Beautify your porch

Make the entrance to your home as welcoming as possible by highlighting your front door. Refresh the door wreath and replace outdoor mats, especially if their designs are seasonal. There are amazing wreath ideas you can try this fall. Make one with your local greenery or opt for a pumpkin-inspired front door decor. You can also add potted plants that mirror your refreshed landscaping. Since fall is quite humid and rainy in most parts of the world, make sure to protect your porch and/or deck, and clean and store your patio furniture, umbrellas, and children’s summer toys in a dry place.

Improve your curb appeal

Even though fallen leaves can add a beautiful touch to your front yard, that doesn’t mean you should completely neglect your lawn during fall. Regularly rake up your lawn to keep the leaves from completely covering it, and make sure your grass is healthy. After you take care of your lawn, you can complete the fall look of your home by adding some colorful fall flowers. Plant chrysanthemums, alyssum, celosia, helenium, or pansy and add a splash of color to your yard.

Light up the longer nights

In the fall, days get shorter and shorter, so it’s important to provide your patio with some good lighting. You can put up some decorative lights along your walkway, or make cute lanterns to illuminate your front door. These lighting solutions will not only add charm to your home but also ensure that you can get to your entrance safely.

Fall is a special time of the year. The weather is much milder, Halloween is just around the corner, and delicious fall aromas fill the air. If you want to make this season even more special, try some of these DIY projects and welcome this year’s fall with your arms wide open.
