Don't have a lot of time to spend, but still want to welcome fall? These quick ideas are the perfect solution.

Fall Arrangement

Combine almost any container with fall's bounty for a quick seasonal boost. Feature your favorite fall colors to personalize the arrangement.

Apple Wreath

Greet the harvest season with a wreath of apples. Hot-glue mini or full-size apple replicas to the wreath of your choice.

Fall Leaf Topiary

This elegant topiary is so simple to make. Simply hot-glue your favorite fall leaves and some greenery to a foam ball, then "plant" it in a beautiful container.

Wheat Centerpiece

Reap all kinds of compliments when you make this wheat centerpiece. Cut all the wheat to the same length and arrange it in floral foam that fits your container of choice.

Autumn Candle Circle

Make a centerpiece from items you have on hand. Ring a candle with leaves, fruits, and vines for a fabulous fall look.

Sunflower Centerpiece

Add a splash of sunshine to your table with this easy centerpiece. Float flowers face-up in a long, low platter or bowl.

So Easy Table Runner

Fall foliage is the focal point of this easy table runner. Use a stencil -- or even easier, a rubber stamp -- and some fabric paint to decorate a plain linen runner.

Homemade Acorn Wreath

Tiny acorns adorn this easy-to-make wreath. Start with a small wire or cardboard ring and cover it with moss. Then hot-glue acorns onto the moss. Finish it off with a fall-colored ribbon to hang the wreath.

Harvest Staircase

Bundles of ornamental grasses or grains make an unexpected accent on your staircase. Use a rubber band to make the bundle, then wrap each one with some raffia and attach it to a baluster.

A Chair with Flair

This is a pretty way to bring the outdoors in. Attach one perfect pinecone to a beautiful stripe of satin ribbon to make this elegant accent for chairs at your table.
