The end of August means that the colors of the outdoors are changing and many homeowners may want to shift gears in the household to better prepare for the coming months. CountryHome.com recommends several steps that can help with the decorations that can mark this transition.

Pumpkins are generally a symbol of the fall and, by lining several of these on a front porch or doorway, one can make a house stick out from the rest. The news source even suggests using three pumpkins and stacking them on each other to make a pumpkin snowman.

Another way to recognize the changing of the season is to wrap fallen leaves around plastic-foam balls and wind wire around them so that they are held in place. Stringing these along the walls of a room can add splashes of autumn into the home.

Wicker baskets can also create a feeling of fall, especially when they are filled with pinecones, nuts, lemons and pieces of evergreen, according to the news source.

Window treatments may also contribute to this aesthetic. Interior shutters can be a rustic and beautiful addition to an autumnal theme, and they are available in a range of different colors. These window treatments can also provide a home with complete privacy.
