LIFESTYLE: EASY DIY FALL DECOR

If you're like us, you're always looking for an excuse for a fun new DIY and with Fall in full swing and Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, we thought it would be the perfect time to share some of our favourite DIY crafts for Fall. These five craft ideas will add just the right amount of seasonal decor to your home, and are super fun and easy to make. We hope you like them as much as we do! 

1. Tree Branch Coasters

When we're spending more time inside during the cooler months it's nice to be able to bring elements of the outside in to warm up a home! We love the idea of these tree branch coasters. They not only look pretty, but they'll save your wood tables from drink rings during entertaining season. 

What you'll need

Rubber leaf stamp, wood slices or you can saw a fallen tree branch! 

 

 

2. Gourd Candle Holders

We think these are such a great way to introduce Fall accents into your home. Perfect for a Thanksgiving table centre piece, or for a fireplace mantle! Plus, making these is a piece of cake. 

What you'll need

Assorted gourds, knife to cut the width of the candle into the gourd, and tealight candles. 

Instructions

Simply carve a hole into the gourd that is the width and depth of the tea light, and pop the tea light in!

3. DIY Fall Wreath

How great is this Fall wreath? We think it adds such a nice feature to your front door in the Fall and we love the bright orange and natural tones. 

What you'll need

Fake flowers with stems, foam ring, wire cutters to cut thick plastic flower stems.

Instructions

First, cut the stem of the flowers so they are about an inch or two long. You don't want these to exceed the width of the foam ring, or they will poke through it. Next, start adding flowers. Once the wreath is full, tie a ribbon or burlap around it and secure it to your front door! Super simple and it looks great!

4. Foliage Pumpkins

A simple, more sophisticated way to decorate your pumpkins a little differently this year! They look great for interior or exterior decor, and bonus: there is no carving required! 

What you'll need

White gourds, leaves from your backyard, Mod Podge. 

Instructions

Once you've gathered some pretty leaves, add Mod Podge to either side of each leaf and stick to the pumpkin until all of the leaves have been placed. Hold down for a few seconds to ensure the leaves are sticking properly. Let the glue dry overnight!

5. Burlap Pinecones

How cute is this idea for an outdoor light or even a front or side door at your house? It's a festive yet subtle way to add a hint of fall to your home's exterior. 

What you'll need

Pinecones, burlap, wire.

Instructions

Firstly, create a bow with burlap. Next, using wire, weave the pinecones together, and tie to to the burlap bow. Fix to a door knob or outdoor lantern for a festive look.
