Seasonal decor for an autumn apartment

Spice up your apartment and celebrate the arrival of fall by incorporating fall colours and crafts into your apartment. With subtle, natural accents here and there, you can create an apartment space that showcases fall without overwhelming your surroundings. Whether you’re looking to decorate your apartment walls, dining room, living room or your apartment’s door, there are crafts that are perfectly suited. We at Williams and McDaniel Property Management want residents to enjoy their apartment space and the arrival of fall and we hope these fantastic and fun DIY crafts will help residents achieve both.

Gourdeous Candle Holders

Make those adorable little pumpkins and gourds festively functional with Revel blog’s Gourdeous Candle Holders. Using the gourds’ and pumpkins’ bodies, you’ll have adorable little tea light holders that are inexpensive and seasonal. A few cuts and drills into these bite-sized beauties and you’ll be enjoying a candle-lit dinner by gourds and pumpkins. 

 

Leaf Lit Mason Jar

Mason jars seem to be a staple when it comes to home décor DIYs. This leaf craft by Spark and Chemistry blog covers the glass jars with brightly coloured leaves for an intense festive flair. For this candleholder, you can either collect leaves from outside or purchase fake ones and apply them to the outside of the jar using Mod Podge. Once the podge is dry and the leaves are secure, add a lit tea light into each Mason jar for a subtle fall glow that will look stunning on the dinner table or sprinkled around the apartment.

 

Pressed Leaves

Take the natural beauty of leaves and showcase them with the help of Wit and Whistle’s Pressed Leaves craft. For this DIY, you’ll need to press the leaves you’ve selected on wax paper for a few weeks. It is best to place your pressed leaves on a neutral background and frame it for a sophisticated and simple fall-inspired art piece. You can even try creating a collage of leaves or colour coordinating the leaves to achieve a subtle Ombre effect.

 

Pumpkins
