LAST UPDATED: Jun 16, 2021 | PUBLISHED: Oct 28, 2015 | By:

Fall seems to be the busiest time of year – beautiful weather, back-to-school and an abundance of fall fun. I laughed at a Facebook post I recently saw where someone shared how they wanted to decorate for fall {an elaborate front porch} and how they decorated for fall {a mere pumpkin}. I’m sure many of you can relate. I love decorating for the seasons, but finding the time can be a challenge. Today I’m sharing 10-minute creative fall decorating ideas that require very little effort if you should be feeling like that lone pumpkin.

One of the most beautiful ideas is also one of the easiest – place 3 branches in a vase. Just remove the leaves that fall below the top of the vase, fill the vase with water, insert branches and enjoy the beautiful pop of color.
