How many pumpkins have you carved in your life? If you’re like most, the answer is a resounding “enough.” Granted, there’s nothing wrong with jack-o-lanterns, and carving them is fun for the whole family, but there’s more to fall décor than scooping out pumpkin guts! We’ve got six DIY projects that pretty much anybody can do and none of them involve gourds. Take a look!

 

Rustic mason jars

Difficulty level: Easy

Nothing says fall like, well, mason jars that literally say “fall,” and this easy project is a great way to welcome in the season. Aside from the mason jars, all you need for this DIY project is acrylic paint and a brush, twine, sandpaper, and vinyl or letter stencils. You also need something to fill the jars, and while wheat stalks are suggested, it’s totally up to you. And, if you want to use more jars to spell out something else (like the fancier “autumn”), have at it. Or, skip letters all together for the simplest take!


Sunflower wreath

Difficulty level: Medium

While red and orange colors seem to get most of the attention every fall, yellow isn’t celebrated enough! You can tap into this bright, happy color with a fun DIY sunflower wreath. It basically involves getting a whole bunch of burlap – yellow, green, and brown – to make leaves and petals, and then attaching them to a wireframe.

Difficulty level: Easy

There’s just something about the warm smell of cinnamon in a coffee shop or bakery. Nothing says fall like that wonderfully sweet smell wafting through your olfactory sense. Now you can infuse your home with the alluring aroma of cinnamon throughout the fall season. The supplies for this DIY project are simple: pinecones, cinnamon sticks, and cinnamon essential oil. Put your scented pinecones in a bowl, basket, box, or whatever you like. You can also get creative and add things like leaves and dried fruit.


Apple wreath

Difficulty level: Medium

While you can buy apples any time of year, there’s just something about fall that makes them special. Perhaps it’s all the apple cider and apple pies we’ll consume over the next few months. To show your appreciation for this versatile fruit, consider making an apple wreath. You’ll need a foam wreath, burlap, toothpicks, a hot glue gun, and a bunch of faux apples. Pick the apple colors you like; if you go with red and green, you’ll have something to display for fall and Christmas décor!

This revolutionary liquid plastic formula works on any surface to re-attach, refill, and rebuild by forming a rock-hard layer of clear plastic. Forget your Super Glue – non-toxic, non-messy Bondic gets it right the first time.


Wood slice napkin rings

Difficulty level: Medium/Hard

If you’re a whiz with power tools, these napkin rings will probably be a sinch. But, if you’re more of a novice, it might be a little more challenging. This DIY project involves finding a tree branch 2-3 inches in diameter and then cutting it into equal slices – about 3/4 of an inch. After that, it’s just a matter of drilling a hole about an inch in diameter through the middle of each slice and putting your napkins through them.


Wool candy corn

Difficulty level: Easy

The great candy corn debate: Do you enjoy the sugary little pyramids or do they make you recoil? If you’re Team Candy Corn, show off your love for the Halloween confection with giant wool versions of them! This project is simple: Just grab cone-shaped items (Styrofoam cones work well) and yellow, orange, and white wool yarn and start wrapping. You may need to use tape or glue to make sure the yarn stays in place, but that’s basically it!
