All of these DIY’s are fairly simple and I was really happy with how they all turned out. You can get the majority of the supplies at a craft store or you can order it online. This is actually my first time decorating for fall and I probably went a little over board, but I am in love with the decorations and probably won’t want to take them down when spring comes along.
- Fake Leaves
- Gold Paint
Step 1- I taped the leaves to cardboard to make them easy to paint and gave them all two coats of paint.
Step 2- Once dry attach the leaves to a string. I just tape them to an existing garland I had to make it feel like fall. If you want to know how to make the garland you can read about it here.
Water Marble Coasters
- White outdoor paint (you could also use acrylic paint and a sealant)
- Nail Polish
- A container
- a small wooden stick
Step 1- Paint your coaters white and let dry overnight
Step 2- Fill your container with water
Step 3- Slowly pour nail polish into the water and let it spread, but don’t wait to long or it won’t move around easily.
Step 4- Using your wooden stick use a light touch to move the nail polish around until your happy with it. Their will probably be some trial and error. Once you have you design ready dip your coater into water and using a cutip pick up all the nail polish that hasn’t gone onto the coater, so it doesn’t ruin your design.
Step 5- Allow to dry and your done. If you want you can also seal it.
Leaf Print Pillow
- White fabric or a white pillow case
- Gold Paint
- Fake leaves
- Hot glue gun or something to sew with
- Black pom pom’s (optional)
Step 1- Fold the fabric over and cut out the size you want. I used a pillow I already had to help measure the size I wanted. Since I wanted two I used the first one as a guide foe the second.
Step 2- Glue or sew around the edges, leaving a small whole at the bottom to turn it inside out and. to stuff the pillow.
Step 3- Paint a fake leaf and press it down onto the pillow case. Be generous with the paint and use something like a piece of cardboard to help push the leaf down. Repeat this using different sizes of leafs.
Step 4- Stuff the pillows and glue or sew the whole at the bottom. I also glued on black pom pots because I thought it looked really cute.
