8 Leaf-Inspired Home Décor Ideas

With six maple trees bordering my front yard, I am familiar with the falling leaves of fall. While I enjoy raking leaves for my children, I also appreciate the beauty of a single fallen leaf. The edges, veins, shapes, sizes, and colors of leaves are unique and amazing.

Here are eight ways that leaves inspire home décor.

Lacy leaf makes for a lovely table decoration that exudes a vintage charm. Its tea-stain color adds a sense of history. This delicate lace can serve as a starting point for other Fall décor pieces like pumpkins, wovens, and stems.

The exquisite texture and shapes bring in a beautiful, cozy feel.

If you have a large window with a view, frame pressed leaves in glass-on-glass frames. When hung in front of the window, these leaves create a stunning piece of Fall art when the natural light shines through.

Fall leaves can be messy. They can break and turn brown. Silk leaves are a great option for leaf décor.

I love scattering silk leaves on bookshelves, as though they have just fallen from the treetops.

I don’t believe nature-based art can be simpler or more effective than this. Glue well-formed leaves onto white paper or cardstock and arrange them in an orderly collage. This provides contrast to the usual disorder of leaves in nature.

Each leaf is visible and can be admired, and when all the leaves are installed together, they create something more significant than their individual sum. Beautiful in its simplicity.

Stringing leaves on twine with clothespins works well with both real and faux leaves. Mounting the twine on an open wooden frame creates a natural backdrop for the hanging leaves, creating an ironic display of natural elements.

A mantel in Fall screams for seasonal love. An old-time leaf cut-out garland might be just the thing. Brown paper and old book text paper leaves create visual interest on this white mantel.

Maybe you love leaves but don’t know what to do with the ombre browns, reds, and yellows in your home. For a visually striking vignette, spray paint leaves (real or silk) and mount them on textured paper or burlap. This is an easy leaf-inspired decor project with a festive impact.

If you don’t like natural leaf colors, don’t lose hope! I have a hand-printed fig leaf linen table runner to show you. The colors are vibrant, the leaf silhouette is classic, and the linen is perfectly textured.

This cool-hued table runner can be used year-round, but it’s especially fun to use during the Fall when warm colors dominate the decorating scene.
