Our temperatures are dropping slightly here in Illinois. Summer hasn’t left yet but fall is trying to wiggle her way in. The trees can’t ignore the shorter days however, and leaves will start to turn color in few weeks. While it isn’t here just yet, autumn is such a beautiful time of year and worthy of a post about fall decorating ideas to boost your home’s curb appeal.
A fringe of red leaves creates a pretty canopy over a front door. It’s nice when outdoor decor happens naturally like this.
Want to create memorable curb appeal for the fall season? Rather than rust-colored flowers, how about a rusty old car? Personally I’m more interested in the pretty red house behind the car.
When it comes to fall decorating ideas to boost your curb appeal, you don’t have to go all out to make it pretty. Simple, colorful mums look great on a painted porch floor.
Got a wagon lying around somewhere? Fill it with fall decor and park it in the front yard.
Classic fall elements like corn stalks and pumpkins are always a great choice for outdoor fall decorating, and they’re budget-friendly too.
Flower boxes stuffed full with fall mums add charm to a stately brick home. It’s just a small shot of decor but it packs a punch of curb appeal.

Consider replacing fading summer flower baskets with hanging baskets of mums. There are so many great color options and will extend outdoor color well into October and possibly November too.
Make an impressive impact with a few over-sized pumpkins. I’ve got the perfect place in my front yard for one of these orange behemoths.
Of course, the most beautiful of all outdoor fall decorating are the colorful leaves carpeting the ground and clinging to the trees. One of the first things I did when moving into our current home was to plant a couple of burning bushes for their brilliant red color.
Pansies love cooler weather and look how cute they look creating a comfy bed for a display of pumpkins.
Do you like the natural, raw wood siding on this historic home? All that’s needed to boost curb appeal is a pair of wreaths on the front doors.
This little red house wears a fun and slightly messy display of gooseneck gourds in the front yard. They’re a great choice to echo the green of the shutters and front door.
My favorite outdoor fall decorating is the use of mums. I love their vibrant colors and their mounding characteristic. My front yard mums have buds on them and should be blooming in a few weeks. I plan to add more to my garden beds this year.
