Fun and Easy Fall Decorating For Your Apartment

It is a great time to be in the New Orleans area! Fall is in the air, and the cooler weather is (hopefully) on the way. Even if it doesn’t cool down anytime soon, you can still bring the coziness of the season into your home with these fun and easy fall decorating tips for your apartment!

More of a painter than a carver? No problem! Painting pumpkins for Halloween can still create a cool aesthetic without the mess and labor that comes with carving them. There are endless options for painting pumpkins – they can be made as pretty or as spooky as you’d like. They can be customized with fun googly eyes, beads, sequins, or whatever your imagination can produce. You can create solid colors, shapes, silhouettes, or multiple colors. One large pumpkin to set outside your door or several small ones placed around your apartment rental near New Orleans will look fabulous after being painted over!

Fall is all about the weather, so the outdoors presents a world of natural decorating resources. Creating natural interior designs is as easy as gathering acorns into a vase or mason jars, painting pinecones to place on a banister or window sill, or fashioning a homemade wreath out of colorful fall leaves.

If you don’t want to bring Mother Nature into your home, fake leaves and greenery are great options for adding fall accents to your apartment.  Art supply stores like Michael’s, conveniently located near 1st Lake’s Metairie and Kenner apartment homes, have an abundant supply of fall supplies to make an autumn-inspired arrangement.

Now that you have these ideas in mind, it’s time to get decorating and enjoy the coziness of your fall-ready apartment home!
