 DIY fall home decorations

DIY fall home decorations

I am wondering why I didn't think about trying DIY home decorations before? It's such a great way to spend your time, it's relaxing, you develop your creativity, you save some money and you can brag with your artistic skill to everybody :)) This is my first fall in Denmark and the rainy October and the continuous cloudy sky made me feel a little blue, so I started to search for interesting activities to do indoor. Then I got the idea to decorate my house for this beautiful season and with a lot of leaves, tree branches, pinecones, chestnuts and a modest investment in some suppliers from Søstrene Grene, I created some beautiful decoration. What you need:

1. From the DIY shop

  • Multi purpose glue
  • Acrylic paint in white and gold, to paint the pumpkins, leaves, chestnuts, pinecones and the branches. If you need a more resistant paint, search for spray paint at your local DIY shop
  • Jars, vases and supports for candles
  • Lots of candles, different sizes and models
  • 2-3 paint brushes
  • White lace sticker tape
  • Raffia thread

2. From the nature

  • Branches, leaves, pumpkins, pinecones, chesnuts and everything else you can think of. I collected everything, except the pumpkins, from a nearby park. :)

3. From home

  • Reuse the jars from the pickles or marmalade and transform them into candle holders or vases. I even reused to small jars I bought with some delicious tiramisu inside. Of course, I had to sacrifice myself and eat the tiramisu :P
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Boiled eggs to do the golden acorns you will see in the photo (golden paint + glue+ raffia thread)

And here is what I did!
