A dozen fall outdoor decorating ideas

The mornings are chilly, there are pumpkin spice lattes on the menu, and you feel yourself reaching for a sweater: it must be fall.

Don't neglect your outdoor space as refresh your decor for autumn. From recycling household items to going rustic, there are so many simple yet stunning ways to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

The Great Pumpkin: Not Ready to go full "Jack-o-Lantern" yet? Pick up a pumpkin and make it the centerpiece of a simple vignette before Halloween arrives, like Cupcakes and Crinoline.

Go for the Gourd: Pumpkins aren't the only options. Second Chance to Dream used some colorful
gourds to dress up her address sign.

Raid your Linen Closet: An old plaid blanket makes a colorful backdrop for a fall display. Rips, tears or holes only add to the look.

Burlap Equals Charm: A burlap and denim wreath like this one from Kenarry makes a colorful welcome for guests.

Think Beyond the Porch: Heathered Nest transformed some tin cans into a chandelier to brighten up her outdoor space in her backyard.

Longevity is Key: Here's a smart idea. Redhead Can Decorate created a stained pumpkin stand that's versatile enough to use through Thanksgiving.

The Best Things in Life are Free: Pinecones in a simple basket, like this display by Cupcakes and Crinoline bring an inexpensive rustic feel to outdoor decor.

Rock On: Brightly painted rocking chairs like on the porch like these two, styled by Debbiedoos, are the perfect place to sip cider on an autumn afternoon.

Industrial Planters: Metal garbage cans make great industrial looking planters. Use different sizes like Little Brags for visual appeal.

Show Off Nature's Bounty: A colorful wreath like this one by At Home with Jemma puts fall's treasures on display.

Make a Mini Scarecrow: Scarecrows say "fall" but if you don't have space for a traditional one, assemble a mini version, like this scarecrow from Giggles Galore.
