Unique suggestions for autumn
If you want to use leaves for fall decorations, mix glycerin and water in a 1:2 ratio. Dip the leaves into this concoction. Put something on them to keep them submerged for 2-6 days, then gently remove them and dry them with a paper towel
Not all pumpkins are orange. They can be found in virtually any color. They can be white, turquoise, copper, gold. Choose the pumpkin you like best and make it the focal point of your decoration
Corn husks, raffia, jute bows, pinecones, feathers, birdhouses, and figurines reflecting the season will bring a unique atmosphere to your home
Put colorful leaves and twigs in a vase on the kitchen windowsill. A clear vase will work best here
How to make an autumn wreath for the window?
Use consistent materials. The combination of bright artificial autumn leaves with pink dried hydrangeas makes a wonderful combination. When preparing your wreath, consider the size of your window. Keep it simple, more is not always better. If you are making a wreath for the first time, don’t go overboard. Stick to a set budget. Don’t invest more in materials than you would pay for a nice, finished wreath
The best fall wreaths incorporate distinctive seasonal elements such as pumpkins, colorful fallen leaves and pastel fabrics. You can also go for unconventional options. Instead of an orange pumpkin, opt for a white one. Also, don’t limit yourself to just warm maple leaves. Add some green leaves and moss to the mix. Don’t be afraid to experiment
You can also prepare a wheat wreath and enhance it with feathers. It fits perfectly into a rustic interior. Make sure that the wheat ears are of different lengths. This way you don’t have to worry about the wreath looking too agitated or uniform
Autumn essential oil candles
Capture the scents of fall by using beeswax and your favorite essential oils. Prepare:
- beeswax pellets (half a kilo is enough if you want to make two large candles),
- natural wicks,
- 8-10 drops each of orange, rosemary, cinnamon and clove oils,
- 2 candle containers (jars with lids, tea cups or small bowls),
- a glass bowl or tin for melting the wax.
If you are using a melting tin, place it in a large pot filled halfway with water. If you are using a glass bowl, set it over the pot and melt the wax using the double boiler method. Melt the wax into a clear liquid, stirring occasionally. Once melted, add the essential oils and stir. Dip the metal end of each wick into the wax, then press firmly into the bottom of the candle container. Hold the opposite end of the wick with wooden picks. Fill with wax, leaving some space at the top of the container
Original acorn decoration
Collect as many acorns as you can. Be sure to look through your acorn box and get rid of any that have holes or are broken. Wash the dirt off them. Throw away the ones you don’t like. Place the remaining acorns on a tray lined with aluminum foil and bake at 90 degrees Celsius for 2 hours
Set a timer every 30 minutes to shake the tray. This way you don’t have to worry about anything sticking to the aluminum foil. Discard any that don’t look nice or have burned. Let them cool completely, then spray them with a clear spray. Let them dry, flip them over, and spray again. Wait for them to dry
Fill a few wine glasses with miniature artificial pumpkins and a few acorns, turn them over and add a candle. If you find acorns attached to twigs, remove the leaves and place in a vase. This will give you a fun composition.
