Or find a cute slab of a tree stump and use that to house a centerpiece on your dining room table with some of the other ideas in this list.

Do something completely creative and original to add this natural fall element to your home.
Wreaths are pretty popular as the seasons start to change in the fall and winter. And the possibilities for fall wreaths are endless. You can use pinecones, fall-colored flowers, leaves, ribbon, berries, beads, wheat, corks, ornaments, or any combination of these.
Make your way to your local craft store, pick up a foam or twig wreath and any decorative elements you want to add to it. You can probably even find some on your own just lying outside your house.
Fall perennials are a great way to bring the seasonal look to your home. Plant some in your flower garden in front of your home. Place them in a decorative vase on a table or shelf in your home. Use them in a wreath or in a pumpkin vase. Or turn your summer roses into potpourri.
It’s not secret the pumpkins scream fall. But you don’t have to go find a large orange pumpkin to carve to bring that seasonal flare to your home. Pumpkins can add a sense of class when utilized properly too. Use a variety of different colored and sized pumpkins to line your front porch. Find small white pumpkins to use as a centerpiece on your dining room table.
Add some burlap and fall colored ribbon to a mason jar. Then you can place whatever you want into it – pinecones, candles, mini pumpkins, flowers, beans, marbles. These make a great decoration to add to your table, shelf, or fireplace mantel.
