Bringing the Beauty of Fall Indoors: Nontoxic Fall Decor Items

As the leaves begin to change and the air grows crisp, many of us are eager to welcome the cozy vibes of fall into our homes. One way to embrace the season is by decorating your living spaces with autumnal charm. However, if you're conscious about creating a nontoxic environment for your family and guests, it's important to choose decor items that are safe and eco-friendly. Here, we'll explore some nontoxic fall decor ideas that will let you celebrate the season without compromising on health or sustainability.

  1. Natural Materials: Opt for decor items made from natural, biodegradable materials like wood, straw, and cotton. Wooden pumpkins, acorns, and garlands made from twine or jute are not only nontoxic but also lend a rustic and warm touch to your decor. 

  2. Real or Fabric Fall Foliage: Incorporate real leaves and branches from your backyard, or choose faux foliage made from fabric. Ensure that any artificial leaves or wreaths you buy are free from harmful chemicals. Look for "certified nontoxic" labels or 100% cotton when in doubt.

  3. Soy Candles: Fall is the perfect time to cozy up with candles. Opt for soy-based candles scented with natural essential oils. These candles burn cleanly, emit lovely aromas, and are free from the toxins found in some paraffin candles. Check out our Soy, Jack-O-Lantern Candles here.

  4. Organic or Recycled Textiles: When adding cushions, blankets, or table runners to your decor, consider organic cotton or textiles made from recycled materials. These options are both eco-friendly and free from harmful chemicals used in conventional textile production.

  5. Upcycled Decor: Get creative by upcycling items you already have or can find at thrift stores. Old mason jars can be transformed into charming candle holders, while vintage crates or baskets can become unique planters or storage solutions.

  6. Pumpkins and Gourds: Real pumpkins and gourds are not only nontoxic but also fully biodegradable. They can be used for a multitude of decor ideas, from table centerpieces to porch displays. Did someone say.. Jack-O-Lantern?

  7. Natural Wreaths: Welcome guests with a beautiful wreath made from dried flowers, twigs, or pinecones. These wreaths are not only gorgeous but also eco-friendly and chemical-free.

  8. Handmade Decor: Support local artisans and crafters by purchasing handmade fall decor items. Handmade goods often use high-quality, nontoxic materials, and you'll have a unique piece that adds character to your home. We recommend our handmade, Fall Soap Collection.

By choosing nontoxic fall decor items, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home while prioritizing the health and well-being of your loved ones and the environment. This fall, let your decorations reflect the beauty of the season in the most natural and sustainable way possible.
