Autumn is in the air! DIY ways to Bring Autumn into the home!

So in true British fashion, its early September, we should be soaking up the last few weeks of Summer but as always the change is already happening! Nights are drawing in, mornings are getting darker and the cold air is already becoming apparent! Now, I know I'm not alone when i say I'm actually excited about it. There just something about Autumn that feels great. The air is cold and crisp, the trees turn to the most beautiful shades of yellow and orange and for us in our house, Autumn is when we do most of or socialising. cosy nights in the garden with friends around the fire, a yummy hearty meal and red wine are how we spend most autumn weekends. 

One thing i particularly love is giving the house a little change and bringing this lovely feeling and colours into the home. I will be writing a longer blog post about this and embracing hygge but for now, I've summarised a quick list of my top 5 favourite DIY ways to bring the autumn season into your home for next to nothing!

1. Outdoors

Using Branches with lovely Autumn leaves are a great way to bring the outside in. Real or artificial, they add a perfect pop of colour.

2. Lanterns

Lanterns aren't just for candles! I'm all heart eyes emoji over this idea of putting baby pumpkins inside!

3. Cushions and Blankets

Nothings beats being all cosy under a blanket, and the colours of these just scream autumn!

4. Candles

I love this idea of putting coffee beans into a jar and pushing a tea light in. So simple yet so effective and as the tea light heats up, the coffee beans release their fragrance! Dreamy!

5. Hygge
