Utilize this list of ideas when you decide to decorate your home this month.

Inventory Savings

Welcome Sign

What better way to start off your home decor than with a customized “Welcome” sign? Plus, the best part is that this is a great DIY project! Simply start with a piece of wood. You can purchase wood from a local store, or recycle wood from another item you happen to have at home. Once you have gotten your wooden foundation selected, you can customize it with paint, stain it, or distress it to fit the look you desire.

After the wood has your desired look, it’s time to decide which font style you want feature on your piece. You can free-hand paint your text, or use a free online editor like Pixlr or PicMonkey. Transfer your text with chalk, markers, pencils, or paint.

Check out these examples of welcome signs and other fall signs.

Fall Lantern

Light up the night with a fall lantern! This project is pretty simple, as it only requires a few steps.

Step 1: Purchase your lantern case.

Step 2: Decide what you’re going to fill your lantern with. You can go the traditional route and fill your lantern with a large candle. Some festive options can be found here. Or, you can fill your lantern with a variety of small pumpkins, leaves, and battery operated candles for a more custom look.

Step 3: Decorate the exterior of your lantern with ribbons, flowers, glitter, or any other festive decor that you can think of.

Once you have completed each of these steps, hang your lantern or use it as a beautiful centerpiece!

Pumpkin Decor

When you think of fall, pumpkins are probably the first thing that come to mind. So, of course, we couldn’t end this list without giving you a few ideas for pumpkin decor.

  1. All Dressed Up: Get your pumpkin ready for the trick-or-treat season by dressing it up in its own little costume. First, carve or paint the face with your desired look. Then, fill it with lights. Finally, dress your pumpkin in a festive costume. You can cover its head with a wig or a hat, wrap the pumpkin up like a mummy, or place a smaller pumpkin on top of a larger one and dress him like an Autumn snowman.
  2. Pretty Pumpkins: Put a twist on the typical pumpkin design with this decor idea. Swap your spooky Jack-o-Lanterns for Pretty Pumpkins instead! For instance, you can start by covering your pumpkin with paint and glitter. Then, treat it as a vase by cutting the top off and placing beautiful flowers inside. You can also take the exterior of your pumpkin to another level by bedazzling it with jewels and stones. The possibilities for this pretty pumpkin design are endless!
  3. Center of Attention: Use your pumpkin as a centerpiece. You can keep it simple by just adding fall stickers to the exterior, or spice things up a bit with paint, leaves, and lights. Another good idea to try is an orange ombre! With this quick decor option, its easy to make the design all your own.
  4. Festive Forest: Take your front door decor up a notch by creating your very own festive forest. Gather a few pumpkins to use as a base. Then, drill small holes in them and stick berry branches inside. As the tops of the branches tower over the pumpkins and the warm colors mix, the result is an inviting, fall display that all of your visitors will rave about.


Now that you’ve got tons of festive decor options, get started as soon as possible! You can stop by the store nearest you and pick up all of the items you need. Hop into a vehicle from Alexander Chevy Buick GMC, grab a few pumpkins, and decorate your home today. We can’t wait to see you!
