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. We enjoy so many things about the colder weather ahead. I love the smells of the fall air of the leaves falling, acorns, apples, sweaters, boots, and adding rustic fall decor to the home.

Immediately, I begin thinking of fires, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bread, cinnamon butter, and pumpkin cornbread, to name a few. Fall is also a time to snuggle under those heavy throws while reading a favorite magazine or watching a movie.
Add autumn to the decor in the home by adding baskets, trays, fall leaves, and branches.
As an example of adding rustic autumn décor to the home, you may enjoy reading about decorating with lanterns. You will see a collection of acorns I collected which adds a rustic touch to bookcases and shelves in your home. I also share tips to preserve them for years to come!
Add Dried Hydrangeas
Idea 1: Add Natural Elements
Dried hydrangeas are often a favorite of mine to add nature and autumn décor to the home. Faux flowers, fall foliage, or real flowers from the garden will work. In addition to hydrangeas, whole walnuts, dried artichokes, and white pumpkins are great combinations for a simple look.
Add deep rich colors for the season, leaf branches, orange berries, or darker color flowers.
Add Nuts And Branches
Idea 2: Branches From Your Backyard
Fall is a great time to grab branches and other faded flowers from the backyard and garden. Add them to baskets, crates, or vases you use in your country decor and love.
Indian corn adds rustic décor to the home. For example, this is the Indian corn wreath I made to add a natural look to our home last week. It’s easy and fast and adds is rustic!
White Pumpkins And Heavy Throws
Idea 3: Add Pumpkins Of Different Sizes
An urn filled with dried hydrangeas and small pumpkins is perfect for natural fall décor.
An old crown and a Florentine picture add a bit of elegance to a rustic look.
One of my favorite things to add to our rustic fall home is walnuts and pine cones. Add them next to a French antique compote filled with a pumpkin, and Spanish moss adds a bit of nature.
Also, the rust on the crowns adds instant character and charm for a fall home.
Shop At The Grocery Store
Idea 4: Visit The Grocery Store
Because apple picking season is around the corner. Visit farm stands and your local food market for red and green apples or pears to display inside an ironstone dish or large bowl for a festive autumn look.
Adding Dried Orange Slices and Pinecones For Home Décor
Idea 5: Add Natural Elements
Dried orange slices are also great additions to fall decor. Make dried oranges slices to add to your fall home decor, I share ideas to use them in many ways. I also share how to make a garland with whole dried citrus. Adding these to rough wood lanterns is perfect for a simple look.
Candles Are Great For A Fall Home Decorating
Idea 4: Adding Candles
Candles are a great way to add warmth this time of year for fall decor. In our home, I use a combination of battery-operated candles and scented candles. In this picture, you can see how I add a pillar flameless candle to a lantern and orange slices.
The scented candles I use are always from Goose Creek Candles, burn clean, smell amazing, and they have fantastic sales. They are adding more fall scents every day, so check often.
Add Fall Throw Pillows
Idea 5: Update Your Pillows
Throw pillows are a must for any home. For the most part, when thinking about tossing 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. Look for pillow covers in faux fur or cable knit work from fall through the winter.
I hope this post gives you inspiration for ideas to fill your home with rustic fall decor. How do you change your home for the fall season?
