The falling leaves that you see during fall are great materials for easy decorations. Dry, yellow (or sometimes red) leaves are perfect for DIY fall décor projects. You can place them around the interior to make sure your house gets the fall upgrade. Here are several easy projects you can tackle easily.
1. White Painted Pumpkins with Leaves
This simple DIY ornament puts a twist on regular pumpkin decorations. Collect dead leaves from various sizes and colours. Spray the pumpkin with matte white. Wait until the pumpkin is dry before you apply each leaf using glue. Layer the leaves with water-repellent coat (Modge Podge) and let dry.
2. Fairy Light Strings with Leaves
Leaf-decorated fairy lights will make your house look more magical. Collect dead leaves you like and preserve them by placing each leaf between wax paper sheets and iron them. Make sure the leaves are coated with the waxy substance. Use glue to attach the leaves to the strings.
3. Mason Jar Candle Holder with Leaves
Putting a candle inside your mason jar is a simple but creative decoration idea. If you want to incorporate fall season, make sure to preserve the leaves by ironing them from behind two layers of wax paper. Clean the mason jars and let them die before being unused. Use decoupage like Modge Podge to stick each leaf into the inside of the mason jar until the jar is full of leaves.
4. Dry Leaves Artwork
Release your inner artsy soul by using dry leaves to create a simple artwork. Find a large board and create the outline of any shape you like. Preserve your leaves by ironing them under the wax paper sheets. Use Modge Podge to stick the leaves to the board, following the outlines. You can trim the leaves while sticking the leaves until they create a shape.
Fall gives you a lot of natural handcraft materials. These DIY fall décor ideas are easy, practical, and only need a few materials.
