My Favorite Color is OctoberOctober 14, 2019
Autumn is finally here, and that means it’s time for some easy, earth-colored, comfy-cozy DIYs. We’ve gathered together the best fall crafts, so you don’t have to look far to find inspiration. Each of these easy fall crafts is super cute, incredibly easy to make, and the homier picks you’ll find here are bound to pair wonderfully with the rest of your decor, especially because they’re all so customizable. Change out colors and add meaningful personal details to any one of these hand-selected projects. What matters more than following the instructions to a T is that you’re spending time away from your phone, off of your computer, and thoroughly engaged in your handiwork all while celebrating the most beautiful season of them all with your loved ones. But the fun doesn’t stop there, once you’ve found a project that’s perfect for you why not make it a family affair? Crafting doesn’t have to be a solo activity it’s actually the perfect fall family activity. Ask your kids to join in on the DIY fun!
One of the easiest and most fun DIY projects is the Pine Cone Wreath. This activity will not only keep your children engaged but also requires them to go outside and get some fresh air; get them to run outside and burn some of their never ending energy! Simply form a circle with burlap ribbon, and collect pine cones. You can either leave the pine cones as is or paint them with fun autumn colors, orange, yellow, and red. You can also add some matte mod podge glue and sprinkle some glitter for the extra pizzazz! If you decided to go the painting route, let the pine cones dry and then glue them on to the burlap ribbon following the circle shape. You can then hang the wreath outside your home door and around the house. They can be made as little or as big as you want.
Unlike this super fun and easy DIY, colorful teeth is not a great look! Get rid of those stains with a routine dental cleaning from one of Artful Smiles Dental Studio’s best hygienists. Call for your appointment today!
Fall’s a whole lot more fun when you can play with it. This next DIY project is a fun alternative to the store bought version: Pumpkin Checkers! You will need paint, a wood board (roughly 30-inch), and 24 tiny pumpkins of 2 different colors (or tiny fall related items). To start, take your wood board and paint 32 alternating squares across the whole board, let that sit and dry, then place 12 tiny pumpkins of the same color on one side and the remaining 12 of a different color on the opposite side, and BOOM! Your own home made fall inspired checkers game!
These DIY projects are very fun, easy, and doable at the ease of being at your own home. Cleaning teeth unfortunately isn’t a DIY. Brushing and flossing twice daily is a routine that should definitely be kept up, but we all need some love from a biannual professional teeth cleaning.
Autumn doesn’t only have to be the indicator that winter is coming; gather family and friends and organize some DIY projects to make this hot to cold weather an easier transition!
