Fall Window Decoration Ideas
With fall weather firmly entrenched across much of the nation, summer decorations are coming down and fall decorations going up. Fall window decorations are an excellent way to brighten your home or business with the seasonal colors of fall.
Below, we have accumulated several fall window decoration ideas that reflect the colors and spirit of the fall season:
Foliage Window Decoration Ideas
A simple, but creative window decoration idea to introduce the colors of fall into your home is to hang an assortment of leaves of varying colors in your window. To do this, gather leaves when they change colors and fall. Then, dip them in wax to hold their colors. Suspend in front of a window for a unique fall look.
If you do not have an assortment of leaves to choose from or you do not want the hassle or mess associated with dipping leaves in hot wax, most retail stores and hobby stores will have artificial leaves in their holiday decorating areas.
Harvest Window Decoration Ideas
A popular alternative to foliage decoration is decorating your windows to reflect the bounty of the fall season. Fall harvest foods are readily available at grocery stores. Popular choices are apples, nuts, gourds and corn stalks.
A unique way to decorate your windows to reflect the fall harvest season is to create a fall garland with leaves and fall produce. Although any fall produce can be used, we recommend squash and pumpkins for their longevity compared to apples and several other fall produce items.
If longevity or food waste are concerns of yours, artificial items are readily available in the holiday decorating sections of most retail stores this time of year.
Halloween Window Decoration Ideas
For Halloween, there are several directions you could go. You could create a palette of the traditional colors of Halloween – orange and black.
Alternatively, you could include seasonal items to create a spooky appearance themed for the Halloween festivities, or you could do a blend of the two. With the proper lighting and a simple black cutout, you can create a spooky, yet palette appropriate window decoration. A tree silhouette with amber lighting can create an excellent Halloween themed window decoration.
Thanksgiving Window Decoration Ideas
For Thanksgiving, common window decorations include elements of the fall harvest and the Pilgrim landing such as turkeys, cornucopias, pumpkins and corn stalks. A simple decorative idea for anyone with a window box is to create a Thanksgiving themed window box.
To create a simple Thanksgiving window box, simply fill your window box with pumpkins, gourds, dried corn and a little fall foliage. This will add a variety of colors to your home or business that reflect one of the most cherished holidays in the United States.
