DIY Roundup: Autumn Decor

7

While we love decorating for Halloween, all good things must come to an end, even a roll of fabulous vintage jacquard ribbon. Now that the holiday is over, it’s time to replace some of those ghoulish gourds and creepy creations with bright and warm fall decor. Here are a few of our favorite DIYs for autumn!

Ring of Fire

Autumn Wreath | Better Homes and Gardens

You’re probably thinking you’ve seen one wreath, you’ve seen them all. Well this one really caught our eye. It captures the colors of fall beautifully, and we love those bright Chinese lanterns! It’s easy to make with the instructions on the Better Homes and Gardens website.

Rustic Elegance

Jute and Lace Vase | M&J Trimming

This jute and lace vase is just as cute as it was when we made it last year as a host or hostess gift. Fill it with sprigs of autumn leaves to really embrace the season!

Decorative Dish

Fall Leaf Bowl | Shelterness

Why shouldn’t bowls be seasonal and stylish? This fall leaf bowl from Shelterness is a great for holding treats, or as a catchall for keys. It also makes a great gift!

What a Hoot

Autumn Owl Decorations | A Beautiful Mess

Are you an avian aficionado? Make one of these cute little owls from A Beautiful Mess. Even a bird brain could do it!

Brown Bag Bouquet

Brown Paper Bag Flowers | A Place for UsThese beautiful brown flowers are made using an unlikely source: paper bags! Visit A Place for Us to find out how to make these thrifty and rustic fall decorations!

We hope we’ve inspired you to create some new decorations for the season! If you have any great ideas for fall decor that you think we would love, share them down below!

Now that the holiday season is approaching, we’re sure you’ll be preparing to attend all of those seasonal events and parties. We’ve got the same thing on our mind, so we’ve been trying to brainstorm some simple DIY hostess gifts. We’re loving the idea of a burlap-wrapped candle, a vase wrapped in jute, or a lovely lace candle holder. See some of our gift inspiration below, and check out our Toast the Host picks to make your own DIY host gift!
