2. Pumpkin Centerpieces
Pumpkins are a quintessential fall décor. Let them be the star of the show with this crafty take on pumpkin décor.
Stack an assortment of locally grown small pumpkins and gourds inside an upside down tomato cage or topiary frame that was used in your garden this past summer. Make sure to start with the wider part of the cage on the ground and fill it up completely with your pumpkins of choice.
Finish the look with a few branches of fall leaves from your yard placed around the base and a small cinnamon broom placed on top. The effect will resemble a harvest themed witches hat— it’s unusual and a real eye catcher for your front porch display!
3. Front Porch Straw Bale Fall Décor
Picking up a few straw bales from Wagners is one of the easiest ways to welcome fall into your home. Stack a bale or two near your front entrance or even your back patio for a quick autumn transformation. Straw bales are the perfect base for showing off your pumpkin carvings, weaving some stretchy spiders webbing or displaying some festive heritage corn. The options are endless, get your straw bales from Wagners today!
4. Hanging Dried Herbs
Now is a good time to transplant herbs to use in the kitchen all winter long, that is, if you’ve got a green thumb and have ample light to care for them during the cold months. Place them in a shady area outside for a few days after transplanting, then bring indoors and place in front of a south or west facing window.
If you would rather repurpose your herbs come fall, try a simple hanging dried herb display. You simply need a few bunches of herbs from a garden, some woven string and branch from your yard to create this stunning and natural fall décor display.
The natural fall decorating options are endless. If you’re ready to try these ideas on your own, contact Wagners about product availability, hours and more. We’re happy to help you make the most of this fall season.
