Autumn is when we retreat indoors, craving glowing log fires and mulled cider. But outside, there’s an abundance of colour and texture, a spectacle for the senses as the bounties of summer fall away. You can make the most of the seasonal splendour by weaving these autumnal accents into your home’s interior design with some DIY fall décor. Here are some ideas to get you started.
DIY fall décor leaf bowl
A walk in the fallen leaves is one of autumn’s great pleasures. While you’re enjoying this seasonal treat, look out for shapely leaves, because you can preserve them as an elegant leaf bowl.
The method, put together by Consumer Crafts, is surprisingly easy. First, cover a glass or plastic bowl with cling film. Next, coat the leaves with PVA glue or Mod Podge, then layer them on top of the cling film. Press them flat using another layer of cling film. Leave the bowl to dry for four hours, then remove the top layer of cling film. When the leaves have dried fully, carefully remove them from the bowl. For a more even surface, add an extra coat of PVA glue or a craft glaze.
