DIY Fall-Themed Hurricane Glass

You can certainly go beyond using leaves for your fall decorating escapades. Why not use log disks, acorns, twine, and some other found object to create a rustic fall garland? This will be perfect for an outdoor room!

Bring the Outdoors In


Have a beautiful tree with some striking hued leaves? Cut a few branches and arrange them in a vase for an instant fall centrepiece. You can also go big and place your arrangement over a mantle. The leaves will stay bold throughout the next month or so!

Simple Leaves Centrepiece


An autumn-themed plate can be just as elegant as an expensive arrangement when you use colourful fall leaves and candles to create your centerpiece. To be on the safe side, electric candles can also be used. No clean-up after the season too!

Framed Fall Leaves


This may be the easiest DIY in this bunch. All you’ll have to do is select some pretty fall leaves and frame them! That’s it!
