Fall calls for cozy elements all around your house or apartment. You can use many fall decorations for apartments to cozy up your living space. Throw blankets are an essential fall decoration.

You can get some furry blankets, blankets in bold colors, or a few with fall designs on them. You can also set up your apartment for an indoor camping date if it’s too cold outdoors. Throw blankets and pillows can liven up a space and create a warm and cozy aesthetic that matches the cuddle weather outside.

4. Wood Pumpkins

Wood pumpkins are unique fall decor ideas because they won’t rot as pumpkins do at the end of the season. You can make reclaimed wood pumpkins yourself or purchase them.

They aren’t hard to make if you are comfortable with using a jigsaw and know your way around a miter box. This craft doesn’t take many materials; you can use your wood pumpkins every year to decorate the inside or outside of your home for autumn. They make the cutest gifts as well!

5. Fall Scents

Fall scents are a must for every home. Candles are essential to the cozy vibe autumn represents. There’s nothing quite like curling up under a blanket on the couch with a fall candle burning and filling the air with sweet scents that remind you of the festive season.

There are some cute candle holders you can get that would make a great addition to your arsenal of fall decor. Soaps come in fall scents so your hands can smell like autumn rain while you go about your day.

Room sprays can add an extra flair to the scent in your home, too. Look for scents like apple, pumpkin, cookies, rich vanilla, or harvest smells – fall scents are the best things about fall! Cinnamon buns baking in the oven or cozy meals in the crockpot can also fill the air in your home with the delicious aroma of fall.

6.  DIY Fall Crafts

You can do many fall craft projects with your kids or loved ones to celebrate the season and decorate your apartment. Fall projects like making a wreath, welcoming football season with football decor, making fall garlands, and baking delicious treats are staples during the fall months.

You can also make pillowcases representing the season or sew your own hand towels for your kitchen or bathroom. Make a metallic pumpkin out of canning rings from mason jars, which are so fun! You can also paint mason jars or use them as vases for fall foliage!

Fall flowers are the perfect fall decorations for apartments. You can bring your fall foliage indoors to put on bookshelves, your mantle, or tables by windows. Mums, chrysanthemums, and marigolds are pretty fall flowers that can brighten up any space.

You can add fall foliage to your mason jar vases, plant them in fall flower pots or rustic bins, or use them for your DIY crafts.
