Fall will be here before we know it so, let’s see how to add rustic fall décor to the home.
I have been a fan of fall and the colder months since I can remember. I enjoy so many things about the colder months ahead. As an example, I love the smells in the air of the leaves falling, acorns, apples, sweaters, boots and yes adding rustic fall décor to the home.

Immediately, I begin thinking of fires, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bread, cinnamon butter, pumpkin cornbread to name a few. Fall is also a time to snuggle under those heavy throws of course while reading a favorite magazine or watching a movie.
Adding rustic fall décor to the home is easy by adding baskets, trays, fall leaves and branches to name a few.

Adding Rustic Touches With Dried Hydrangeas
Incidentally dried hydrangeas are often a favorite of mine to add rustic fall décor to the home. In addition to hydrangeas, whole walnuts, dried artichokes and white pumpkins are a great combination.
Add Nuts And Branches For A Rustic Look
Fall is a particularly great time to grab branches and other faded flowers from our gardens. Add them to baskets, crates or vases you already use in your décor and love.
Indian corn especially adds rustic décor to the home. For example this is the Indian corn wreath I made for our fall home last week. It’s easy and fast and adds a rustic fall look!
As an example, an urn filled with dried hydrangeas and small pumpkins is perfect for rustic fall décor.
An old crown and a Florentine picture adds a bit of elegance.
One of my favorite things to add to our rustic fall home décor is walnuts and pinecones. Add them next to an French antique compote filled with a pumpkin.
Because apple picking season is around the corner. Look to farm stands and your local food market for red and green apples or pears to display inside an ironstone dish or large bowl.

Candles Are Great For A Rustic Fall Home
Candles, are great this time of year for fall décor. In our home I use a combination of battery operated candles and scented candles. As an example, in this picture you can see how I add a pillar battery operated candle to a lantern and orange slices.
The scented candles I use are always from Bath and Body Works, they burn clean, smell amazing and they have fantastic sales. They are adding more fall scents every day so check often.
Lastly, For How To Add Rustic Décor To The Home
Throw pillows are a must for any home. For the most part, when thinking about throw pillows, I buy pillow covers. Pillow covers are easier to store and there’s a wide variety available. Instead of buying specific pillow covers for one season. I try to look for pillow covers in faux fur or cable knit because they work from fall throughout winter.
I hope this post gives you inspiration as well as ideas to fill your home with rustic fall décor.
