How To Easily Decorate For Fall

How do you make attractive candles for fall decorating? You can easily decorate for fall with appealing decor when you use basic fall ingredients. 

As a person who enjoys farmhouse style and crafting, I understand the appeal of using simple and inexpensive materials to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. And what I call the basic ingredients to a cozy fall farmhouse are often items that you already have on hand. 

What are the basic ingredients for fall? In our farmhouse, it starts with adding heavier throw blankets on the couches and folded quilts at the end of our beds. Then adding rugs, candles, pumpkins (who can forget the pumpkins?), warm colors, and warm scents. 

I simply pull these first things from the linen closet after washing and storing our lighter summer linens. (It’s also a good time to mend linens or pass things down to the dog.) I also have a few seasonal pillows and pillow covers I swap out around the house. Each step makes a big difference in making our surroundings feel warm and cozy.

The next step is all about fall scents!
