DIY Pumpkin Tutorial
In the mood to make something new to decorate your home this autumn?  These seven DIY projects are easy, quick, and some are even free to create!  Each will add a stylish seasonal handmade touch to your fall decor.



Fall is the season where decorating is definitely inspired by nature.  Either we showcase the fresh from the outdoors symbols of fall like pumpkins and branches of leaves or we use the same faux versions year after year.  And if do-it-yourself projects and decorating are something you enjoy, then there are countless ideas for using both the real and the fake to create a festive and cozy home during the autumn.


I've gathered together seven of my favorite and most popular fall DIY ideas here for you.  Hopefully one or more will inspire you to get out your paint brush, gather some freshly fallen leaves, or do a little hammering to create something beautiful for your home.

7 EASY DIY PROJECTS FOR YOUR FALL HOME







1 |  DRY BRUSHED CHALK PAINTED PUMPKINS

A simple paint treatment takes colorful craft store pumpkins and transforms them into stylish heirloom versions you'll put out year after year in your fall home.

A visit to the great outdoors will give you all the supplies that you need to create this easy layered fall centerpiece in a wood dough bowl.

3|  DRIED OAK LEAF TREE

After gathering leaves for this project, constructing the tree will take no time at all.  This decorative tree can be displayed as is or atop a candlestick for some height.






4|  RUSTIC PUMPKIN STAND

While I used the rustic pumpkin stand that I constructed as a decorative place to store my fall baking supplies, you could use this easy DIY project for just about anything seasonal.  Fill it with leaves, more decorative pumpkins, or even as a serving station for a fall party.

5|  REALISTIC FAUX PUMPKIN STEMS

My least favorite part of any fake pumpkin, not matter how real it looks, is that the stem always looks fake.  This DIY idea will have you using ordinary craft supplies to make stems that are almost as nice as the real thing.
