15 Things You MUST Do This Season!
Ready To Embrace Autumn?
1. Decorate with Gorgeous glittered acorns!
Don’t get too many though, leave some for the animals. They do look fabulous, don’t they? What a perfect colour palette for the season.
2. Hang An Autumnal Wreath On Your Door
This hydrangea wreath is absolute perfection for anyone’s Autumnal door! So – the thing to do this autumn is to buy or make one or just decorate the front door with a pretty wreath.
3. Go, Apple Picking,
Doesn’t this basket of apples look marvellous? Jackie Rueda did a marvelous job capturing this beautiful photograph! I come from a county that is famous for its orchards and the apple’s it produces for cider. In the same way that California is associated with oranges, my home county has apples. So I’m particularly fond of the smells of apple crumble baking in the oven, it brings back a lot of fond memories!
4. Make Pumpkin Pie Almonds
5. Make Brown Sugar Maple Leaf Cookies
6. Hang Some Printable Wall Art For Fall
7. Prefer Fancy Chalk Board Lettering?
Nobody does it better than Lily and Val! You can get this print via Etsy. If you would love to be able to letter like this, Valerie also offers a course all about chalk lettering via Brit&Co. Chalk Lettering is one of those things I wish I could do better so this class is definitely on my wishlist.
8. Make Autumn Infused Cider
“The best recipe there ever was. 1 gallon of apple juice (100% apple juice) ½ gallon of pineapple juice 1 cinnamon stick 5 clove pieces ½ t. nutmeg 1 orange, sliced juice of 1 lemon ½ c. sugar Combine all ingredients in a big pot on the stove and simmer for 2-3 hours. Or in a large crock pot for 2 hours on high, then turn to low or ‘keep warm’ and can be left on all day”
9. Get Artistic
Painted leaves! You could also preserve these with beeswax (a link to a similar tutorial is further on in this post).
10. Create A Beautiful Journal Layout
This beautiful spread was created by Rachel Whiting. All of those leaves are glorious!
11. Decorate With Pinecones
This is a beautiful idea! I am going to do this. Hang little pinecone necklaces on jugs! Be sure to bake the pinecones first to kill any bugs and bacteria.
12. Make Stunning Plaster Decorations
You can preserve some pretty leaves by dipping them in plaster. Not so much preserving, making art. via Sweet Somethings Designs
13. Preserve Leaves
This is the post you want about how to preserve leaves! Using beeswax you can make art using beautiful fallen leaves.
14. Make Leaf Art
This idea is from grow creative, and it’s adorable! Using some rather excellent Martha Stewart butterfly, pinking circle and Fiskars tiny flower punches, cut the shapes from the leaves and preserve them using decoupage glue if you’re adding them to journal pages.
15. Fill Your Home With Autumnal Scents
Get your favourite fall candle ready to burn! How cute are these labels? I’m dying to stick my nose in that candle. My favourite part of autumn is filling my home with the smells of spices, sweetness and the smell of a freshly lit candle.
