Happy fall, everyone! As you enjoy the features of your new home like your open-concept living area and flexible space like a basement, take a look around and think about sprucing them up with a little fall flair! Now that you’re enjoying more moments inside, there’s no better time to take on a fun and creative DIY project. From wreaths to table centerpieces, take a look at a few of our favorite projects to dive into this season:
Natural Vases: Fresh flowers for fall always make a statement, especially in a unique vase. Choose produce like gourds and squash in different colors and sizes, and dig a hole to accommodate your flowers for a fresh, natural addition to any space in your home.
Ombre Pumpkin Centerpiece: You never need an excuse to put a beautiful centerpiece on your table. Paint mini white pumpkins in different shades (think reds and pinks, greens and blues, or light, cream colors) and situate them throughout the center of your table.
Leaf Cards: Let your kids join in on a fun arts and crafts project! Have them gather up leaves outside and glue them to stationary cards. You can then purchase a “card holder tree” to display them. This is the perfect decor piece for their play area or bedroom.
Grapevine Wreath: There’s nothing sweeter than coming home to fall flair on your front door. Use floral wire to bundle fresh olive branches together, and attach them to a wire wreath form. You can also add dried flowers for a pop for color.
Pumpkin Place Settings: Even if you’re preparing for a smaller Thanksgiving gathering this year, you can still enjoy the process of creating unique table place settings. Mini pumpkins, whether in orange or white, are beautiful vases for flowers like dahlias.
Cinnamon Stick Place Card: It’s so much fun to get creative with the place cards on your table. For a simple yet elegant look, wrap the ends of cinnamon sticks with twine and put your place card in an opening of the stick. Match the font color with the color of the twine!
Pumpkin Checkers: Who doesn’t love a good board game while cozying up inside with family and friends? Create your own checkerboard by painting 32 squares on a wood board, and use mini pumpkins in two colors as the game pieces.
From all of us at Lennar, have fun decorating your home for fall!
