DIY Outdoor Fall Decorations

If you have a large front yard, or even a small one, there are things that you can do that will add beautiful colors and designs to dress up your yard for fall.

From pumpkins and scarecrows to corn husks and gourds, there are so many natural things that you can use in your outdoor fall decorating.

DIY Outdoor Pumpkin Candle Holders

Imagine lighting up your walkway with these gorgeous DIY pumpkin candle holders! I love the white pumpkins and they’re even more elegant when you add in some fall foliage.




Corn Stalk Mailbox

You can get corn stalks – if you don’t have them from your own garden – from any farmer in your area. Just take several and tie them up around your mailbox post with twine and then add in small gourds and pumpkins for color and maybe even a raffia or burlap bow.

Painted Fall Distressed Pumpkin Crate

Those old wooden crates really are great for decorating, especially for fall. If you’re looking for a cheap and easy decoration for the front lawn, this crate idea is perfect.

You just paint your pumpkin or other fall message on the crate and then fill it with mums, pumpkins, gourds or even fall colored dried corn. Then place it on your steps, near the mailbox, or anywhere you want to draw a bit more attention to your decorating.

DIY Fall Scarecrow

What’s better for fall decorating than your very own DIY scarecrow? I love this little guy. He’s so easy to make and would be perfect for decorating anywhere in the yard.

If you’ve never made your own scarecrow before, you’re in for a treat. These are so wonderfully simple and you can upcycle some of that old clothing to make him. Make a couple of them and have a little scarecrow family adorning your lawn for fall.

Galvanized Bucket Fall Display

Here’s another really simple way to show off those fall colors. Just take a galvanized bucket or wash tub and fill it with pumpkins, gourds, corn and other fall related items.

I would even tip the bucket sideways and just have the decorations spilling out of it. This would be great for the base of your porch steps or near the mailbox if you want something with a bit of color further out in the yard.
