Top Fall Decor Tips For The Classroom Inspired by Oriental Trading

These Top Fall Decor Tips are brought to you by my partnership with Oriental Trading.  I did receive products in exchange for these projects.  

 Fall Decor Tips

Decorating for fall is supposed to be fun and exhilarating, but if you don’t have the right tips it can be hard. I wanted to talk about a few fall decorating tips that will make your life a whole lot easier.

Top Fall Decor Tips For The Classroom

Use Warm Colors

You don’t need to go out and buy a ton of things for “fall” decorating. Instead, you can use warm colors to get the decorating done. Warm colors usually consist of browns, reds, and dark oranges. I love this idea because you can go to any thrift store and find these fall decorating pieces.

Flowers Are Ideal

If you’re looking for a serious way to dress up your home for fall, then consider the idea of flowers. Flowers can turn any room into a fall oasis. All you need is a vase and then you can fill it with real or fake flowers. Switch it up often to give it that “fresh” feel every week or so.

Make Decorating Easy

Decorating for fall doesn’t need to be overwhelming. Instead, make it simple. You can make it simple by making small changes in your home décor. Try adding a new fallish looking picture or creating your own artwork from leaves, pinecones, and even sticks you find outside.

Easy Homemade Fall Banners

One of my favorite ways to decorate for fall is with an easy homemade fall banner. You can use orange triangles to create a fun fall banner for your living room space. Simply add a favorite saying like “welcome fall” or “we’re glad you’re here autumn.” You can get as cutesy as you’d like!

Paint Pumpkins

One of my family’s favorite ways to decorate for fall is with painted pumpkins. We make this a family affair and it makes for a very fun fall evening. The kids will love picking out their own pumpkin and also painting it to their liking. Mom and dad can help but for the most part, painting a pumpkin is something they can do on their own.

Inspired By Oriental Trading

I’ve learned that being creative is all it takes when it comes to fall decorating. I’ve even spent some time making my classroom a little more fall like. Here are a few tips:

-Crafts are the perfect fall decorator.

-Huge leaves are perfect for writing the kids names.

-Our monthly chalkboard calendar helps keep our fall activities organized.


My one stop shop for all of my fall home and classroom decorations come from one place and that’s Oriental Trading. Actually, everything I got for my classroom and this time of year is from Oriental Trading. Being on a budget and needing a lot of items to supply my new classroom, they meet all of my needs.

The kids love the extra additions to the classroom. I have to say fall is one of my favorite times of the year and my home and classroom reflect that.
