This depends on how you define 'rhyme'. A pure rhyme is a word which rhymes with each syllable of the other word with which you wish to rhyme. If this is the case, I'm afraid there are no pure rhymes for the word autumn.

The word autumn is tricky to rhyme, possibly because of its history as a word - it comes to us from Old French, via Latin, which took the term from the Etruscans.

There are however over 800 of what are called 'end rhymes', where the final syllable of 'autumn' rhymes with the final syllable of another word.

Some examples of 'end rhymes' with 'autumn'

One syllable words:

Chum, dumb, glum, gum, crumb, come, drum, hum, mum, come, rum sum, thumb, swum, dumb, numb.

Two syllable words:

Album, blossom, boredom, denim, emblem, fathom, fearsome, freedom, handsome, loathsome, phantom, problem, stardom, victim, wholesome.

Thee syllable words:

Buddhism, cherubim, cuddlesome, cumbersome, martyrdom, maelstrom, meddlesome, nudism, sarcasm, quarrelsome.

Or, you could try using 'fall' instead of 'autumn'!
