Can y’all believe it is almost fall? That sounds so crazy to say. I mean, didn’t summer just start? Even though there is already Christmas decor in every store I’ve been in lately, I’m not even ready to go all out with the fall decor yet. So I’ve been thinking about some ways that I can slowly start to incorporate a touch of fall into my decor. Today, I’m going to share 5 ways that you can transition from summer to fall decor with ease. I’m trying to keep these tips budget friendly as well!

5 easy steps to go from summer to fall decor
1. Put your fruit on display.
A quick trip to the grocery store can have you ready for fall in a snap. Using seasonal fruit in your decor is an easy and practical way to add a pop of color and a touch of fall. I styled a few apples with a beautiful wooden letterboard and a few vintage goodies to create a cute fall vignette.
In addition to apples, you could also use peaches, pears, clementines, and last, but certainly not least, pumpkins. Fruit can be beautifully displayed in bowls, baskets, crocks, crates, or jars. Or use your imagination and I’m sure you could come up with many more ideas.
2. Add Pillows & Throws throughout your home.
Another way to easily transition from summer to fall decor is to incorporate a few fall themed throw pillows and some cozy throws. The textures can instantly make your space feel cozy and warm.
I’ve had this “gather here with grateful hearts” pillow for a while now and use it year round, but it’s even more perfect for the fall season. I love placing pillows and throws all around my home. They are cute as decor, but also very practical and functional. We grab them and use them all the time.
I spray painted these mini pumpkins that I picked up from the Dollar Tree and added them in the olive bucket with some greenery that I clipped from my backyard. The birch sticks were an Etsy purchase from last Christmas and work perfect for fall decor as well. I am all about multi-purposing decor items!
You may be wondering why I have that pink velvet pillow with my fall decor. It may or may not coordinate with something really fun that I have been working on for my mantle, so be sure to check back next week for the big reveal. 😉
I picked up a few new throw pillows that I’m loving this year. This cable knit pumpkin pillow from Kirkland’s adds so much texture and fits in perfectly with my neutral decor! The thankful & blessed grain sack pillow was a recent Hobby Lobby find. I also ordered this one from Returning Grace on Etsy and I can’t wait to get it in! Anyone else have a throw pillow addiction? I just can’t help myself!
3. Bring the outdoors in.
That’s right. Head outside and pick up a few pinecones, leaves, and branches to bring the outdoors in. You can’t get any more budget friendly than this my friends.
I snipped these branches that have small green buds on them and placed them in a glass jug in my living room. I used these same cuttings in the olive bucket that I showed above.
Green is the perfect transition color to go from summer to fall decor. Add it in with a few neutrals as a fun pop of color for the fall.
4. Let the smell of fall fill the air.
Isn’t it funny how a simple scent can trigger so many memories and emotions. The smell of pumpkin and I am instantly transported to the fall, no mater what the season is. And this Pumpkin & Oud candle is giving me all the fall feels!
I styled it in a vignette on my coffee table with a few other fall items, such as this burlap pumpkin that I made last year. You can find the DIY for it HERE.
5. Create fall Vignettes around your home
I love creating vignettes all over my home, both for holidays and just every day decor. I made this wooden riser behind my sink last year and I change it up for the seasons. The beautiful sunflowers and little green pumpkin brought this space to fall in an instant.
I hope these 5 tips gave you some inspiration to transition from summer to fall decor. Now all I need is a pumpkin spice latte and some sweater weather and this gal is ready for the fall!
