Who doesn’t want a cosy Autumnal house? These DIY crafts will help
Autumn has arrived and I know I’m not the only one that is thrilled by it! Red and orange leaves, sunny days with a cool breeze, acorn and conker collecting. Even DIY Autumn decor. It’s all nearly here in the UK. The sunny but chillier days. The leaves are slowly turning red proving it really is the best time of the year. Blankets, fluffy socks and hot chocolates get in our faces!
In this post, you will find two really cute and easy DIY Autumn decor crafts for you to try. Super simple and you may even have most of the items laying around the house. Most others can be found for free in nature or very cheaply from most pound/dollar stores.
A Plateful of Autumn – DIY Autumn Decor
Gorgeous leaves, acorns and conkers (horse chestnuts). Not forgetting the lovely little squashes available in the Autumn months. Why not DIY your own Autumn decor plateful of Autumn. Perfect to add a little pop of seasonal flare to any room.
You Will Need
Large Plate or Bowl
Small pumpkin or Squashes (optional)
- Start by adding a mix of conkers acorns and some beautiful Autumn leaves to your plate or bowl. I used a large red charger plate.
- Next, add your flowers to a vase and to your plate.
- You could use real squashes or small pumpkin ornaments to really finish the look.
This really can add such an amazing harvest vibe to any room. You can have it on a table as a centre piece or on the kitchen side. In the entry way to greet guests. It’s simple and perfect whilst being oh so seasonal.
Autumn In a Bowl – Autumn Decor Made Simple
Using just simple items you can find in nature you can make some of the most cosy and cute Autumn decor. Great for to collect with the family on lovely Autumn walks. Why not make your very own Autumn in a vase?
You Will Need
A Fish bowl
Conkers and other Autumn goodness
Small String Lights
Glass beads (optional)
- Start by adding your string lights to the fishbowl.
