Happy Fall! It’s Amanda from Life at Cloverhill here and I’m so excited that autumn has finally arrived where we live in rural Ontario. We’ve had the hottest summer this year and the cool crisp fall air is a welcome relief. Whenever I decorate for the different seasons, I try to bring as much of the outdoors in as I can, especially with the rich colours of autumn. Here are five of my favourite ways you can incorporate natural elements into your fall decor.

1. Dry Acorns for Fall Crafts

decorate for fall with acorns

Acorns are such an easy way to add a little touch of fall, especially as a vase filler. I dried my first acorns over six years ago and they’re still going strong. Drying them helps prevent mold AND kills any little creepy crawlies that may still be lurking inside.

2. Dried Flower Wreath

My mother and I are flower farmers with our own speciality cut flower business here in Ontario, Cloverhill Flowers. As the season comes to an end, I like to cut whatever I can dry (statice, strawflowers, gomphrena, etc) to use for craft projects like this Dried Flower Wreath. They keep the colour quite well and are a lovely way to enjoy your flowers year-round.

3. DIY Pumpkin Vase Arrangements

For as long as I can remember, my mom has made these DIY Pumpkin Vase Arrangements to decorate our Thanksgiving table. We pick our pumpkins from the nearby pumpkin patch and use local flowers as much as we can. They last a full week through Thanksgiving and make a great hostess gift too.

4. Create a Fall Planter under $15

I always love seeing the fall planters start to pop up in front of the grocery store and garden center…until I see the price tag. Thankfully they’re easy enough to make on your own with a larger planter (I reuse mine from the summer) and some inexpensive potted seasonal plants.

5. Fall Leaf Candle Holders

decorate for fall with leaves and candles

Whenever I find bright beautiful fall leaves, I love to bring them in to hang as a garland, lay down along a table runner or even use to dress up candle holders. You can use real or faux leaves, but the most important thing is to not light the candles when the leaves are in there, or better yet use battery operated candles. (I only lit them in the pic for show!)

I hope you have a lovely autumn and that these ideas inspire you to bring the outdoors inside for the season too. For more crafts, recipes, projects and more, pop on by my blog at Life at Cloverhill:
