Halloween has come and gone, and that means it’s time to make room for your fall decorations. Don’t worry about packing up all your Halloween gear quite yet. We have a few tips that can help you transition your Halloween décor to fall.
Take Down Everything That Screams “Halloween”
The first thing you will want to do is get rid of all your spooky Halloween décor. Spiders, skeletons, Halloween signs, and anything else that was used to make your home the spookiest. Then, take a look at what you may have left. Carved pumpkins, scarecrows, lights, candles, and other small pieces can come in handy when transitioning your Halloween décor to fall. Keep your scarecrows, haystacks, and pumpkins and place them in a new spot around the yard or front porch. Your orange lights can be used to decorate the front porch or even your mantel in your living room. Of course, your candles will look good wherever you put them. You would be surprised to find that a good bit of your Halloween décor can be used for fall décor, too!
What To Do With Your Pumpkins
If you find yourself with leftover pumpkins from Halloween that you did not use, these will make a perfect addition to your fall decorations. You can use your smaller pumpkins for a table centerpiece for Thanksgiving. You can even have some fun with your little ones and let them spray paint them. A gold pumpkin always looks good. Larger pumpkins will be great outside. Since you may have had them a while, make sure to wash them and spray the pumpkins with a clear sealant. This will ensure your pumpkins will last and you won’t need to buy more.

Round Up Your Containers
Take all the containers you used for candy and spooky Halloween décor, and reuse them for your fall items. You can fill your containers with leaves, branches, and even your favorite fall candies. You can use your glass containers for your favorite pumpkin or apple cinnamon candles too. Decorating for fall and creating a warm welcoming space inside your home is the best feeling.
