4 Simple Swoon-Worthy Fall Decorating Ideas

post by Village Antiques

When I woke up last Saturday to get ready for our paint class, I was greeted by one of the most beautiful days of the year. With the temperature just a few degrees cooler than usual, I was immediately inspired to start brainstorming festive fall decorating ideas.


Naturally, I couldn’t wait to share them with you.


Here are my current fall decorating favorites:


#1 Chicken wire covered glass bottles.


Let’s just take a moment to appreciate everything chicken wire, shall we?


As you can probably tell, I’m a huge fan of chicken wire. So I especially love these assorted glass jars wrapped in chicken wire:







Although you can use them year-round, you can opt for the rusty tones perfect for fall. Sprinkle these unique pieces on your mantles, dining tables, island and side tables for an ultra-chic and trendy look.


#2 Copper Containers


Nothing quite screams fall like copper. So it’s not hard to understand why I instantly fell head over heels in love with this gorgeous copper container the moment I laid eyes on it:





Pop a few green and yellow-colored hydrangea flowers into any copper container to create an effortless designer look your guests will want to steal for their own homes.




If you can’t find the right hydrangeas, any full-bodied plants or flowers are sure to be an instant hit.







#3 Decorative Garlanding


Adding gorgeous garlanding to your home is a surefire way to brighten up your home and give it the festive look you crave.


To create the garland in my home, I have had my eyes set on this gorgeous magnolia leaf:







Not only is it perfect for the cozy fall weather, but it will take me through the holidays with just a few simple tweaks (more on that later!).


And last but not least…


#4 Mantle Makeover


A beautiful mantle instantly catches the eye and sets the tone of your living area.


We’re missing a mantle in my home so I have been in search for an old mantle that I can make my own with a little help from Amitha Verma Chalky Paint!


Here’s the mantle I have my heart set on:






Just imagine how stunning it will be with an Amitha Verma Chalky Paint makeover!


If you’re like most of our customers, you have a few pieces in your home that could use a fresh, new look. But with limited time and without the know-how, you just haven’t gotten around to doing it.
