I love when September 1st hits every year! To me it’s the start of the Fall season, even though the first official day of Fall is still weeks away.

If you’re like me, you begin to put out little bits of Fall here and there around your home, gradually adding things as the season kicks in. Here’s 5 easy decorating ideas that I’ve done, which you can do now and enjoy through Thanksgiving!

One of my favorite places for faux flowers is Michaels. They have such a neat variety and guess what? It’s only September 1st but Michael’s already has their Fall stems and flowers on sale for 40% off!

4. Outdoor Planter filled with Gourds

In this example, I used a vintage wheelbarrow planter that I had been meaning to freshen up. (The rusty screws weren’t holding the wood together anymore!)

Easy how-to: Buy some hay from the craft store — or use real hay if you have easy access to some, and purchase some gourds and you’re practically finished before you even begin! Add a few rocks on the bottom of the planter to weigh it down. Add the hay, then enjoy arranging the gourds on top. And you’re done!

5. Add a layered bow to an existing Fall wreath

Last year, after I planted purple mums in our front garden beds, I realized that my front door Fall wreath didn’t have any purple in it at all. And I wanted some.

This was a quick fix, using two ribbon scraps and a strip of burlap. A subtle change that made a big difference!
