Simple Fall DIY & Decorating Ideas From Walmart

Neutral fall decor favorites and simple fall DIY projects from Walmart! 

This post is sponsored by Walmart.

While wandering around Walmart the other day, I immediately noticed the aisles of fall decor.  

I tend to decorate for Halloween and then skip to Christmas, but I couldn't help but be drawn to the variety of pumpkins, cozy textiles, mixed metals, and yummy fall candles. 

Once the days get shorter and the weather drops, I like to incorporate additional natural and neutral elements into my decor. 

Walmart is the perfect one-stop shop for DIY supplies and decor staples to help cozy up and transition any home for fall!

Whether you're a traditional Fall decorator or prefer muted tones, Walmart has a variety of pumpkins in various sizes, textures, and colors.  I tend to paint faux pumpkins, so I pay more attention to the size and shape than the color.

Walmart has one pumpkin in particular that's a perfect mix of Cinderella and Knucklehead pumpkins. I would have bought multiple of them, but they must be popular because I only found one.

They do have many other varieties of affordable faux pumpkins in many other colors, shapes, sizes, and textures.

I also grabbed a few $.98 faux acorn picks to paint and display throughout my home.

Painting the faux pumpkins and acorns to give them a neutral makeover was quick and easy.   I used an off-white paint for the textured pumpkin and then added a little antique wax for additional texture.

The acorns were all painted dark brown, including the stems.   They're perfect for tucking into small crocks and vases or to combine with other natural fall elements.

Of course, I also had to pick up a couple bags of faux skull heads to add a bit of Halloween.  They're a neat and unique filler for a natural wood bowl or clear glass canister
