"Embrace the Season with these 38 Stunning Outdoor Fall Decor Ideas"
Enhance the appeal of your carved pumpkins by turning them into exquisite patterned votives. Steer clear of scary faces, and instead opt for elegant patterns, such as these polka dots in varied sizes created with a cordless drill. For an even more charming sight, mix in an array of Cinderella pumpkins and transform your stoop.
Craft a picturesque fall scene on your front porch with a combination of pumpkins and hay bales. Stack hay bales vertically on both sides of your entrance door as a base for stunning towers of pumpkins. Then, employ metal baskets to flaunt an assortment of gourds and squash.
Are one or two pumpkins not enough? Think bigger. Add leafy greens, like ornamental cabbages, to a collection of pumpkins in different hues, along with a festive green garland hung over the front door, to create an eye-catching statement.
An autumnal garland is an instant update that enhances the look of your entrance for fall. Magnolia leaves' waxy green surface and rusty brown underside make the perfect combination for autumn decor. If kept out of direct sunlight, magnolia garlands stay fresh for around a month and can be carefully handled and kept dried for years.
For outdoor fall decor that's fail-proof, opt for fall-blooming plants and fiery-hued autumnal flowers. Daisies' large blooms bring cheer to a planter. Keep them blossoming by placing them in a sunny spot, removing spent flowers, and watering when dry.
Paper bag luminaries are a classic seasonal favorite. Line a stairway or stone path leading up to your home for a subtle, glowing effect. (And for an autumnal twist, cut out leaf shapes in the paper bags!) Use sand to weigh the bags down and LED candles for long-lasting, non-flammable light.
No outdoor fall decoration is complete without pumpkins. Choose multicolored gourds and carve out spaces at the top. Fit in a glass candleholder and a pillar candle for a shimmering pathway border.
We all have outdoor tabletops that yearn for an autumnal arrangement. Work with what you have. Gather art, potted plants, and a variety of pumpkins to create an organic and diverse seasonal tabletop decoration.
While everyone adores lush green wreaths, autumn calls for red, gold, and orange hues. Create a fiery wreath with fallen autumn leaves from your yard. (Alternatively, pick up some preserved leaves from a craft store for longer-lasting decor.)
What exactly is a mumkin? Add a blooming mum to a pumpkin, and voila! A mumkin. In autumnal colors, a carved pumpkin makes for the perfect vessel for mums.
During this time of year, pumpkins are everywhere. Utilize their abundance and create a striking display with just one concept—the pumpkin. By stacking and clustering them, you can create an impressive scale and make your outdoor decor fun and stunning.
Who says pumpkins must be orange? They are classic, but try using mahogany-colored gourds to add whimsical autumn charm to a mini succulent garden. You can also attempt to contrast a green and purple color scheme in your planter or garden bed to express personality.
Fill a rustic window box with an assortment of pumpkins, ivy, artichokes, and ornamental cabbage for an infusion of exciting outdoor decor elements. It is beautiful and seasonal, yet entirely unexpected. Choose plants that tolerate autumn temperatures in your region.
While orange is prevalent in autumn, never forget scarlet. Scarlet-toned blooms such as deep red mums, in planters, add warmth to your entryway. Additionally, they complement the orange palette of any pumpkin display.

For a carefree outdoor party, add relaxing and fun decor like a floating candle display. Carve the tops of small pumpkins, include tea lights, and float the votives with scattered autumn leaves in a dish with water. Repeat the same theme with more pumpkins and leaves on the table.

To create a striking display, add white pumpkins to your dark green seasonal wreath. Orange and red berries and flowers provide additional contrast. In the evening, the white hue adds an eerie, moon-like glow.
This pumpkin acts as a floral vessel or foundation for a blooming autumnal display, much like the mumkin. Add autumn-blooming flowers and various greenery (extra points for incorporating lettuce and herbs!) into a pot, then "plant" it inside for stunning floral pumpkin decor.
While pumpkins may look good in clusters, why not go vertical? Utilize height to achieve a dramatic effect. Stack pumpkins from largest to smallest, sandwiching greenery between each layer. Pumpkin topiaries atop a stone vessel make for eye-catching outdoor fall foliage.

If you have a vessel that is perfect for fall accessories, stack an assortment of pumpkins of descending circumferences, with the largest at the bottom and smallest on top. Fill in the gaps between each pumpkin layer with moss or greenery to nicely tie the layers together.
If you're unsure where to begin in decorating for the fall season, take inspiration from the bounty of fall-inspired decorations, including pumpkin topiaries, assorted pumpkins, autumnal potted flowers or foliage displays, and cascading garlands of bittersweet.
