Well, the weather hasn’t changed over yet, but it’s definitely time to break out the DIY skills and turn your home into autumn-central. It doesn’t have to break the bank to have your house feel cozy and fall-ready. We gathered a handful of fun (and simple!) DIY projects that will add just a little fun and whimsy to the everyday.
Chalkboard paint is pretty much a given for any fun DIY roundup. This one can be done on a real or fake pumpkin, but we think a sturdy plastic or plaster one will probably hold up best. Our holiday sections are packed with fun items to add to a project like this. Get kids involved and excited about any upcoming event. Make one for each child’s room, and they can all count down together!
LIGHT MY CANDLE.
- Grab a Thrift Town frame for around $3
- And a Scrabble game for around $4
- Assorted napkins or pillowcases for around $1 each
- Pop out back of the frame, wrap in burlap and staple in place
- Cut out pumpkins (or whatever fall shape you want)
- Use fabric stiffener to keep your shapes in shape
- Allow to dry & add your shapes & letters to your burlap
LEAF IT TO ME.
THAT’S A WRAP!
Maybe the easiest of the lot – cut a circle of any fabric
(again, patterned pillowcases, or sheets),
and wrap up and over a roll of toilet paper. Gather hearty sticks from outside
and insert to keep it all in place. TA-DA! Adorable little pumpkins.
