It’s that time of year folks! Time for pumpkin spiced…well, everything, and DIY fall decorations! If you aren’t a seasonal decorator, you might become one when you see these super cute (and easy) DIY decorations:
Autumn in a jar
This one from Style Blurb couldn’t be easier. All you need is a clear vase and your favorite items to put in it (it might be fun to take the kiddos for a nature walk to compile the contents). For more ideas on what to put in your vase, check out Natalie Palmers gourd-filled one here at Almost Never Clever, and this beautifully neutral vase at Shanty2Chic.
Your own chile ristra
Since this a blog about New Mexico, we want to include at least one decoration native to New Mexico. Ristras are year-round decorations in the Land of Enchantment, but are especially enchanting for fall. Learn how to make your own here.
Rustic wood pumpkins
An original take on a classic decoration, by DIY Swank.
“Gourdeous” candle holders
These are so cute—and easy! Get instructions at the blog Revel.
Burlap wrapped centerpieces
These easy-to-make centerpieces by Oh So Lovely are perfect for a fall wedding or large table spread. And who said burlap was ugly?
Be the best house on the block with these free pumpkin-carving stencils from Spaceships and Laser Beams.
I absolutely love this idea from Better Homes and Gardens. A bonfire made from flaming jack-o-lanterns. Check it out here, and get the stencil (free).
