Halloween is the first holiday that is celebrated in the fall. And since orange is completely appropriate for September's decorations as well, start the season off right with a little bit of bunting. This burlap and twine bunting tutorial from Home Sweet Ruby is simple and easy enough to start your autumn decorating on the right note.
Next to Christmas, the fall season produces the most delectable of scents. Instead of spending a fortune on fall in a jar, create your own version that looks pretty in your autumn decor. We love this vanilla candle surrounded by cinnamon sticks created by the blogger at 320 Sycamore.

Fall produces some of the most amazing harvests, including an abundance of wheat. Show your appreciation for the grain by decorating your home with it. Forget floral arrangements when you can display wheat for a fall-filled vibe in your home decor. We love this DIY version from Later Gator Crafts using a polystyrene foam ball and a painted spaghetti jar.
Let's be honest, if it wasn't for fall we probably wouldn't have the faintest idea what a gourd is for. However, come autumn, we're gaga for the gourd. Spruce up your fall vegetable using this yarn-wrapped gourd tutorial from A Soft Place.
Acorns are another hot commodity of fall. Available from your tall oak trees, acorns aren't only good for critter snacking — they're useful in fall decorating, as well. A great idea for a glass jar or table centerpiece, these fabric-covered acorns from Zemphira are too cute to pass up.
Pumpkins are the most irresistible and adorable of autumn decor, as well as a staple of fall decorating. The options for pumpkin embellishments are nearly limitless. Perhaps the cutest of the options are these fabric Cinderella pumpkins by AKA Design, which are guaranteed to last well beyond the midnight hour.
Every family has love for the cornucopia, a staple of Thanksgiving that's only appropriate for fall. Don't forget this harvest-filled horn on Turkey Day! Create your own cornucopia using this At Second Street tutorial to create a timeless piece for your fall decor.
There are only two seasons in the year when you can decorate your home for football season, and those are fall and winter. So of course you've got to put up the decorations in the fall to savor every single moment of pigskin glory. Decorate a space in your home for your favorite football fanatic using this oh-so-cute pennant banner from My Cup Runneth Over. Made using none other than a turf mat and brown felt, this banner is pretty enough to leave up all the way to the Super Bowl.
Summer is fading, and fall is slowly starting to creep in. As if we could forget with the chill in the air, the leaves begin to fall from the trees to remind us that fall is in full effect. To honor our new season, we shall decorate our home with leaves. Free, beautiful and readily available leaves. Turn your pesky sidewalk friends into a home decor staple by using them in a tablescape theme. We love this plaster leaf project from Cottage at the Crossroads that allows you to preserve their beauty through the entire autumn season.
After Easter, your mantel is free to be decorated as you please.
