Fall is officially here! I am putting the finishing touches on my fall decor this week and will be revealing all of it’s warm tones and nature themed glory. But, to tide you over I am sharing my favorite 25 Easy to make fall & Halloween crafts!

Over the years I have shared simple ways to transition your home for fall. Low cost ideas, and even the easy ways I spook-ify my home for Halloween. My life, like everyone else is jam packed, my days are tightly scheduled. Which means my love of decorating has to happen in a timely fashion.

Nature and simple fall decoration ideas

The easiest way to get around this is to not decorate. Ha, kidding… this is a home decor blog. Obviously I am decorating for each season, it is my ‘thang. How do I juggle decorating and life is I use a lot of things in my home that can be transitioned into different seasons. You can read all about that here.

Here is another example I am able to use items to transition through the seasons. Decorating for fall can feel like decorating whiplash, you have general fall, then Halloween and finally Thanksgiving if you are American. Lots of changes.

I purchased some big and simple white frames from Ikea then found leaf art from an Etsy store. Boom, simple, classic and gorgeous fall mantle. I fell in love with the simplicity of this all white look last year. I felt it balanced out perfectly with my dark blue shiplap. I am going for a similar look this year too.

Here is how I transitioned the same space for Halloween. A cute Halloween banner and some paper bats did the job! By changing out a few smaller items it went from a peaceful fall look to a spooky and fun fall fireplace mantel. Decorating for fall never has to be difficult or expensive. Fall & Halloween crafts is an easy way to help with that.

Another problem many people run into is the cost. Let’s be real, no matter how much you want to turn your home into the coziest fall retreat you ever did see budget constraints can prevent that from happening.

I balance out this problem by making most of my fall decor. Easy to make fall & Halloween crafts is the way I keep my cost down and my fall/Halloween feel to my home high. Doing this allows me to create a few new decor pieces each year, sprinkling in just a little more of the season.

This also allows me to splurge on things I am not able to DIY myself, like a cozy throw on the sofa or even new pillows in the living room. Don’t forget those mums for the fall front porch either, those are a fall staple!

So, I wish I was sharing my fall home tour with you guys today. I need a little more time to get it rolling. I have been working a lot on the kitchen remodel the past few weeks and any actual home decorating has been taken over by sanding, priming, painting and tiling. What?! Did I just say my kitchen is painted and tiled?! Yep, progress has been made for sure!
