We know a lot of people who have parties in the fall around the end of October in order to celebrate Halloween, but for some reason we’ve always loved throwing a mid-season party too, before things get very spooky and start feeling a little more like winter. There’s just something about welcoming harvest time and getting social once again after the end of summer and the start of the school year that makes us feel good about the season change! Being the DIY enthusiasts we are, we’ve always got our eyes peeled for awesome DIY suggestions that will help us making our own seasonal party decor in order to spruce our place up a bit before our autumn guests arrive.
If you’re feeling just as interested as we are, if not more, in the idea of learning how to make some fun DIY fall party decor, check out these 15 fantastic ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in this years search for inspiration!
1. Autumn leaf mason jar candle holder
Besides the fact that we’ve always had a fondness for how simple mason jar crafts are, this particular idea from Spark and Chemistry also appeals to use because we love a unique twist on any classic crafting technique, and their tutorial shows you how to do decoupage with fabric leaves instead of just with paper! Take a better look at their site to see the full details of how these autumn leaf mason jar candle holders were made.
2. DIY cinnamon stick candle
If you ask us, any DIY project hat also makes the room smell great on top of improving how it looks is a total plus! That’s precisely the kind of thing Home Stories A to Z created when they made these adorable cinnamon stick candles in just a few surprisingly simple steps. Because the cinnamon sticks they used are real, the piece makes its immediate area smell a little more seasonal before you’ve even got the candle lit!
3. Rustic sweater candle
Have we really caught your attention with this whole idea of making a lovely fall candle to light while your guests are over but you’re just not sure the cinnamon idea or the decoupaged leaves quite appeal to you? In that case, so long as you have an old sweater you night be willing to upcycle, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Family Chic made this adorable rustic looking fall sweater candle and stuck an actual dried fall leaf inside the band.
4. DIY mercury pumpkin
Like us, have you always been a fan of those kitschy, classic glass pumpkin dishes that some people put out in the fall filled with candy corn but you’re just not sure that clear glass is quite as glam as what you have in mind for your fall party’s scheme? In that case, if you’re open to the idea of adding a little bit of shine, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how The Frugal Homemaker gave their pumpkin dish a silver mercury glass finish!
