5 DIY Projects
|After a long, hot summer, it’s finally fall. Make sure you’re ready for the cooler weather and immerse yourself in the spirit of fall with these fun DIY projects!|
Rearrange the furniture.
If your home has a fireplace, take some time to shift the room’s focus around that feature. This will help make your home a cozy conversation hub as family and friends gather around.
Make gourd bowls.
Gourds have a long history as a fall decor staple, and starting in September, many grocery stores, farms, and craft stores start stocking up on dry gourds. Pick up a few for your house and enjoy carving, painting, and filling them up with fall-inspired items or use them as a convenient place to store your loose change.
Create leaf art.
Next time you rake your yard, keep an eye out for especially nice leaves. Put these aside to frame or use in art projects.
Decorate your table.
The dining room table is a great place to make a seasonal statement and bring the outdoors in. Create a centerpiece with plenty of acorns and pine cones or use an old quilt as a tablecloth. There are limitless opportunities to show your love for the season with your place settings.
DIY pumpkin potpourri.
Bask in the sweet scent of pumpkin pie any time by creating your own pumpkin pie potpourri. All you need is a small pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and a small, lit tea light to diffuse an all-natural pumpkin pie fragrance throughout your home.
