Do you decorate your home for fall?

change the scented candles?
Hang a wreath?
Display gourds or squash?


I don't normally decorate my house, but this year I feel like I really should to celebrate the season...just haven't decided what to do yet.

I saw a lovely tutorial on how to make an apple wreath recently, and I'm thinking that it just might be a possibility, in addition to the jack o lanterns, and spider webs, etc.

Any cheap and easy crafty ideas for fall you would like to share? (I'll see if I can remember where the link to the apple wreath is and post it for you all ;-) )

Do you decorate your home for fall? Not a whole lot. One year, I put a huge bucket of purple mums on the front porch. Another year, I decorated pumpkins with ribbons.

change the scented candles? Sometimes. I also change the room sprays in the bathrooms to fall-friendly smells.
Hang a wreath? Nope.
Display gourds or squash? Nope.

Not my home but I have changed stuff round on my altar as you've seen on Pagan Living. I decorate the living room window for Halloween! We have lanterns, light-up ghosts and spiders, a trick or treat sign, candles, and a big green spider-covered bowl to fill with sweets and stuff this year.

Do you decorate your home for fall? Yes but not over the top, just small things here and there

change the scented candles? Most of my candles are fall scents year round and I only really light them during the cold months.

Hang a wreath? No but I want one but my front door is glass and those suction cups do not stay on in the wind.

Display gourds or squash? I wanted to but have opted for a pumpkin decoration for the centre of my table. I don't have much space to put decor.

The one thing I definitely do for every season is get new soaps for my bathroom/kitchen from Bath and Body Works, I love the foaming kind and they have such great seasonal scents.

I decorate some years. I really want to this year since we are having Xander's bday a halloween themed.

I don't burn candles that much. I usually have something pumpkin or fall like.
