One of the most spectacular gifts God has given us through nature is the changing of the seasons. God’s handiwork is in full swing in the mountains here in Colorado and the splendor of the leaves changing is absolutely breathtaking! Now that fall is officially here, I am spreading more fall decor throughout our house. Today, I am sharing some easy and creative fall decor ideas to help add touches of fall to your home decor.

This is how my coffee tables were decorated prior to starting this project. I keep the decor on my coffee tables very simple so it is easy for me to change things up as the season’s change. The branches in the cylinder vase came straight from my yard and provide a perfect amount of drama for the area.
Easy and Creative Fall Decor Ideas
Since my coffee tables are metal and glass, I felt it was important to add some softness to the tables. Especially since it is fall, adding some coziness should be priority one!
Begin with adding texture
There are so many things you could use for this…a throw blanket, a tablecloth or a piece of fabric with texture. For this project, I actually found this fantastic faux fur bath mat at Marshall’s on clearance for only $12!! When I found it, I instantly thought it would serve as a perfect base for my plans for the coffee tables.
Next, I put the branches back on the table on top of the fur piece. Voila…tons of texture!
Add in a variety of pumpkins
Here, you should just go for it! Variety is key. Velvet pumpkins, faux pumpkins, real pumpkins, painted pumpkins…whatever your heart desires. For my fall decor this year, I am working with a neutral palette so that is what guided my choices. However, this look will work with any colors you prefer for fall.
You could absolutely stop here if you want a cleaner, simple look. However, fall is all about what is happening outside so I like bringing the outside in.
Incorporate natural elements from outdoors
Having a large yard with multiple species of evergreen and deciduous trees and plants, I have a plethora of options. If that is not your case, you could easily use natural greenery you can buy from your local grocery store or faux greenery or branches bought from any hobby store. I chose these chokecherry branches because of their color but also because they will dry well and last a long time.
To feature more natural elements on my coffee tables, I simply brought in some pine cones from my front yard. We have a constant supply!
Easy and Creative Fall Decor Ideas – Finishing Touches
For me, the finishing touches are so important. Adding candlelight is a must-do to help create a cozy, fall vignette. It provides warmth and ambiance that cannot be matched.
