Fall DIY Decor Ideas to Spice Up Your Home
Fire up the hot glue gun! New decor is a great way to welcome in a new season, like fall. But crafting something yourself, DIY-style, allows you to personalize the decor, possibly save some money, and have fun while doing it. Here are some fall decorations worth DIY-ing.
This DIY project uses corn husks to create a natural fall wreath that resembles a sunburst. The husks are first blotted or dunked in water to make them more malleable, and then adhered in layers to a straw wreath base using a hot glue gun. Use it as decor on an indoor wall since it isn’t waterproof.
Add a touch of bling to fall with pumpkins covered in gold-leaf. Simply cover the pumpkin with a glue base and gently press the gold-leaf onto the glue with a paintbrush. Place the gold-leaf pumpkins in a bowl as a centerpiece or on top of a mantle.
Color Wrapped Wheat Centerpiece
Dried wheat stalks wrapped with colored embroidery floss can bring whimsy and new hues into your fall decor palette. Bunch them together to use as a centerpiece, cut the stalks short to use as place settings, or even add a few to a flower arrangement.
Wood Beaded Pumpkin
If your home decor is more minimalist and/or neutral, then this pumpkin crafted with wooden beads should be right up your alley. To bring this pumpkin to form you simply need beads, jute covered wire, and faux or real leaves. Place it on a coffee or side table to add a simple and earthy touch of fall.
This DIY project cleverly uses gourds and squash as vases for autumnal flower arrangements. Simply cut open the top and hollow out a hole large enough for the stems. You can use acrylic paint to decorate the gourd with a pattern or design for an extra step of personalization.
This bohemian-style acorn is created by wrapping fringe around a papermâché egg, topped with leather straps. The result creates a charming and fun textural decoration that is still neutral enough to match most other home decor.
This wreath uses bright colors for a non-traditional take on an autumnal wreath, but you could truly use whatever color combination suits your fancy. Mini pumpkins and gourds can be spray painted and adhered to a wooden hoop, then filled in with faux floral accents.
What we love most about these decorations is that they redefine fall colors while providing a unique mix of texture and material. Happy crafting!
