As the summer comes to a close, you might be thinking about fall decorating ideas for your home. Fall is one of my favorite seasons because it has so much potential for coziness. But sometimes that coziness can cross over into appearing old-fashioned. There’s no danger of that if you check out these six decorating ideas that combine coziness with a modern twist.
Cozy Yet Modern Fall DIYs for Your Home
DIY Yarn Pumpkins
Pumpkins are a must for the fall! This is a really easy craft that will add fall flair to any end table or bookshelf. Simply find a ball of yarn in a good pumpkin color. Then grab some miniature pinecones and stuff one into the top of each yarn ball. You can also wind your own yarn ball for this craft. For more information, visit DIY Show Off.
Candles are the epitome of cozy, and this craft adds a modern twist to the classic candles you might already have in your house. Simply place your candles in glass candle holders and wrap them with burlap, fake leaves, and twigs. Use anything that reminds you of fall. For more information, visit Albion Gould.
This fall decorating idea is perfect for your front door. You’ll need several supplies that you can find at any craft supply store. Once you’ve gathered everything, trim the stems on your fake leaves and bunch them together however you would like. Then insert them into the wreath. Be creative with your placement!

Here is another fall decorating idea that incorporates the ever popular pumpkins. Jack-o-lanterns are traditional for Halloween, but they don’t exactly give off a warm home vibe. If you have some plastic pumpkins lying around, this is a great way to upcycle them and make them into a cozier décor piece. All you need is some fabric!
