As the weather here Valley of the Sun finally catches up to the rest of the country, many Phoenicians are getting ready to celebrate Fall! While “Fall,” here in Arizona is usually limited to a few weeks or maybe a month, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make the most of the cool weather by decorating our home with some easy-to-do DIY’s. As a Scottsdale custom home builder, we love seeing what our clients put together by themselves to help decorate their home. That’s why we’ve put together a list of our top 3 favorite DIY’s that even YOU can do to celebrate the season.
Jute Twine Crochet Coasters
While coasters are primarily used during the hot summer months when our drinks seem to sweat with condensation, these twine-made coasters are perfect for the colder weather. Plus, anyone who crochets knows that the best time of year to practice this hobby is the autumn and winter months! Using only a few materials, these coasters are incredibly simple to make, even for the novice crocheter. Find out more by visiting Delia Creates.
Fall Leaf Candle Holder
This Fall DIY project is so easy, even the kids can join in! All you’ll need is a candle jar, some Mod Podge, and an assortment of dried leaves (you could even find a bag of fake leaves at a craft supply store). Once your leaves are fully dried, cover your jar with Mod Podge, stick on some leaves, cover the entirety of the jar with more Mod Podge, let it dry over night and then spray with acrylic and you’re done! Follow the instructions at Gingerbread Snow Flakes for a more detailed look at this process.
Burlap prints are a super simple and inexpensive way to display your love of Fall. Materials include some burlap (at any length or shape), letter stencils (or stencils of your favorite shapes), fabric paint, an iron, and a sponge brush! Check out I Spy DIY for more inspiration and instructions!
