You enjoy your backyard throughout the summer and want to enhance it for the fall season to keep that fun going. There are many great things you can do with your deck, fence, and backyard space that will make yours the most festive house on the block.
General Fall and multi-holiday decor ideas:
- Use your summer planters again this Fall by placing various sized and colored pumpkins or gourds in them. It’s a simple way to add to the elegance of your backyard while showing your festive side.
- Using earthy pottery, you can add some bright orange colored squash and foliage to create a unique centerpiece for an outdoor table or a great decor for a window sill.
- Hang some lights around your deck or fence. You don’t need to reserve decorative lights for Christmas, get some in orange or yellow to create that perfect autumn feel.
- Add some fall colored accents to your outdoor furniture. You can get some orange and brown throw pillows to toss on the patio or swing. Add hues of yellow with wreaths or scarecrows to really seal the theme. Be creative and enjoy the scene.
Halloween decor ideas:
- Use garbage bags to create a creepy scene. You can cut up a black garbage bag the same way you would a paper snowflake to create a large spider web and most party stores can provide you with the giant occupant of that web. Hang white bags in trees with a face on them to make spooky ghosts.
- Cardboard is a great item for many uses. You can make a cemetery in your backyard by crafting your cardboard to resemble tomb stones and make daunting signs to warn guests of the horror that may ensue.
- Dig out some old clothes and stuff them to resemble a person sitting on the chair or swing on your deck. It’s a quick and simple solution to creating an eerie feeling.
- Decorate old milk jugs like jack-o-lanterns and add glow sticks or battery powered tea lights. Place them along a path or going up some stairs to guide the way.
Outdoor Thanksgiving decor ideas:
- Create a beautiful wreath from dried corn stalks. You simply feather out the husk and fasten the corn in a circle pattern. For another method, try burlap around a coat hanger and hang it on your fence or door.
- Make a scarecrow out of old clothes. You can fasten a pumpkin on the shirt as a head and place a straw hat on top to keep those pesky birds away.
- Use pumpkins, kale, and gourds to create beautiful baskets or pots to place around your patio furniture and on deck stairs.
- String some pumpkins on a sturdy rope to hang along your fence line. Add lights to make it look even better at night and you’ll have your backyard looking elegant in no time.
There are so many great things you can do for fall decorating in your backyards. Use what you already have to create the festive spirit you desire. Your fence, furniture, planters, and other household items can easily transform your backyard to suit the season and any holidays that come with it.
