Here are 10 best DIY ideas to decorate your home to make people fall in love with your interiors that we learnt from decorating projects on Midwestliving:
1. In the spotlight: Squash, pumpkins and a twig of ginkgo leaves on mounded moss command attention in a bell jar set atop a terra-cotta dish. Arrange a few spillovers outside the glass for a touch of spontaneity.
2. Cozy glow: wrapped glass votive holders in textural flair. Tie raffia around three or four overlapping moistened corn husks trimmed to fit.
3. Beyond Mums: If your go-to autumn bouquet defaults to traditional offerings, shake it up with a less-expected blend of veggies, fruits, berries and widely varied flowers.
4. Leaf Card Art: This display is a biology lesson and wall decor in one! Tape leaves to identification cards created with crafts store materials or printed from our free templates below and later place them along a card-holder tree.
5. Color Combo: Create an eye-catching fall center piece with candles, succulents and fresh flowers—we used dahlias and billy buttons.
6. Golden Glow: Clear glass containers show off both candlelight as well as colorful materials. Nestle a candle in popcorn kernels or other seasonal materials, such as candy corn or colored clear round stones (available in crafts stores).
7. Natural Vases: Gourds and squash come in all shapes and colors and easily become seasonal vases. Cut a hole big enough to accommodate a couple of florist tubes. Inserting flower stems for a unique bud vase will add to its beauty enormously.
8. Rope in décor: Replicate a chandelier with leaves instead of lights. Drill a -inch hole in each canning jar lid and pull a separate piece of rope through each hole, then tie a knot under each lid. Place single leaves in jars, and tightly secure lids. Tie rope pieces together and hang from a heavy-duty ceiling hook.
9. Harvest vases: Add a fall flavor to a tabletop or mantel with cylinder vases filled with nuts and wheat. Roll it, coordinating scrapbooking paper into decorative cuffs that slip inside the vase.
10. Simple Leaves: Highlight the beauty of fall leaves with this display. Put single leaves, either pressed or fresh, in small glass vases. We used old lab beakers—look for them at antique stores. Replace leaves as they brown.
