On August 25, 2018 by Lizzie Weakley

Finding the right look for fall can be difficult. This is especially for the exterior. Without as many plants for flowers in bloom, you need to get a little more creative. Here are five ways to redecorate that you should try.

Prepare for a Rainy Day

Copper Rain Chains

Looking out your window when it’s raining can be quite a sight. However, the appeal is somewhat tarnished when you have a boring downspout. If you want to spice things up a bit, consider getting copper rain chains. Not only are they practical in helping guide water away from your home so it doesn’t back up the gutters or leak into the foundation, they also look great. You can see the water dancing down the chain instead of having it drain through an old rusty piece of aluminum.

Get Spooky

If you have a few large trees in your front yard, it is the perfect opportunity to really go with the flow of fall. Get some imitation silk from your hardware store. Then, stretch it out from limb to limb in any trees that have lost their leaves. It provides a spooky yet fun look of spider webs. As a bonus, half of your Halloween decorating is already done!

Make the Most of Your Yard

Bright Green Grass

While you might not have the bright green grass like you did in the summer, you can still make your yard look great. Make a display with several rows and stacks of pumpkins, one on top of the other. You can draw faces on them or leave them natural and simple. The point is that you now have an interesting focal point that distracts from all the brown, dead grass.

Candle Lit Walkway

By taking a few pumpkins, you can place them along your walkway from the driveway to your front door. Then, you can carve out the center. Place candles inside the pumpkins and light them at night for a nice glowing touch to your fall decorations.

Homemade Wreaths

Pick up some of the leaves that have fallen from your trees. Together, along with your whole family, piece them together using string and needles. Then, combine them in the shape of a wreath. Create as many as you want and place them on the front and other doors.

When it comes to decorating for fall, some people feel like there are less options than other times of the year. The reality is that even though there is less natural foliage, you have options. Use the tips above to make your fall beautiful.
