It’s no secret that fall is the best season. The weather is cooling down, we’re spending more time outside with family and friends, and our weekends consist of fall festivals, pumpkin patches, and apple picking. Although, we think the best part of fall might just be decorating the house! fall DIY
At Gulfshore Air, we care about making your whole home comfortable, and if decorating for fall is what makes you comfortable, we’re here to provide inspiration. That’s why we’ve put together a list of 5 fall DIY decorating projects for the whole family to get involved in.
1. Wreath fall DIY
A fall wreath is a great way to greet your guests this season, and making one from scratch can be a great project for the whole family. Be sure to get a styrofoam or wooden outline, lots of fall flowers and/ or fabrics, and throw in some burlap, because what says fall more than burlap? Get creative with this one and make sure everyone has a contributing role. fall DIY
2. Centerpiece Fall DIY
Your DIY fall centerpiece could be the star of the show in your dining room, kitchen, or living room! We’ve all seen the beautiful ones that designers have been creating lately, and you can have one just as beautiful created with your family. Just take a bread bowl or a wide basket, glue down some small styrofoam squares, and place pumpkins, pinecones, and foliage on top until it’s filled completely. Beautiful! fall DIY
3. Fall Tree
Trees for every season or holiday is a new trend and we are here for it. This is a super simple DIY project that can be done quickly and inexpensively. Start your base with a tomato cage turned upside down. Next, wrap lights around the tomato cage and cover it with fall foliage. If you want a tree topper, add a fall flower or a large burlap bow and you’ve got a beautiful fall tree! fall DIY
4. Welcome Mat
Making your own welcome mat is actually very simple. First, you’ll need to buy a plain welcome mat. Target has them for $10. Next, you’ll need to create a stencil and hold it down on the mat with painters tape while you paint it in. All that’s left is letting it dry and removing the tape, and you have a great fall DIY welcome mat!
There are tons of ideas on Pinterest for different DIY fall garland projects, but we thought we’d share the absolute simplest one that still gives your home that elegant fall feel. Simply grab a piece of burlap ribbon and pick some pinecones from the backyard. You’ll need a few cup hooks to screw in to the flat end of your pinecones as well. Once that’s done, hang them from the ribbon and you’ve got a cute and creative fall garland. fall DIY
