With Autumn just around the corner, I’ve started thinking about Fall projects. For today’s Friday Favorites I”m sharing with you 5 adorable DIY projects inspired by Autumn Colors.
I live in Kentucky which can get very hot and humid in the summer. The humidity usually sticks around into Autumn, but becomes less bothersome. The days become more “crisp” and you actually WANT to be outside. Or at least you can be outside without feeling like you just stepped into a sauna.
If you’re ready to start thinking about Fall DIY projects here are 5 that I hope you will love.
Fall Embroidery Hoop Art Tutorial
Bev from Flamingo Toes always creates the most gorgeous and clever Embroidery hoops. She has so many cute ones on her blog that it was hard to figure out which one I wanted to feature this week. This pumpkin farm truck and “Happy Fall” saying would be so cute to use in your Fall decorating.
Patchwork Boxy Pouch Pattern
The gorgeous yellow fabric on this patchwork box pouch drew my eye this week. Minki Kim is showing you how to make one on her site, she even has a video tutorial to go along with the pattern.
DIY Paper Quilt Block Wall Decor
This cute Quilt block wall art was created with paper! It’s a fun take on a traditional fall motif.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Each year my kids BEG me to make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. They always start requesting them in August, but the “family rule” is we don’t crack out the pumpkin puree until September 1st! Guess I need to make some this week.
My Favorite Fall Candles
Since Labor Day is this weekend I guess it’s ok if I break out the Fall candles. I have two that I love to burn during the Autumn months. The first one is the Pumpkin Clove Candle in the photo above. It has a strong “pumpkin spice” smell and is a bit sweet.
The other one I love is Spiced Chestnut scent. It’s close to the Mrs. Meyers Acorn Spice scent if you’re familiar with that. It has a bit more of a masculine scent in my opinion and is not as sweet as the pumpkin clove. It comes in a set with a Candle, Hand Soap & Lotion. I usually buy the candle & the soap.
What about you guys? Any fun Autumn DIY’s in the works? I’d love to hear what you’re making and what you love right now, just let me know in the comments!
