This is probably the easiest fall decoration you can make. All you need is some candy corn, a clear glass tealight holder, and a tealight. Sprinkle some candy corn into the candle holder and then nestle a tealight in the candy corn. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and since everyone considers candy corn to be a quintessential part of fall and Halloween, it’s a perfect DIY project this season.
Since candy is such a staple in fall and Halloween decor, why not dress up your old wine bottles to create a quick and simple decoration? This is also great if you love the colors of candy corn but don’t want to tempt yourself by having the yummy candy in your home. For this DIY project you need some wine bottles and white, yellow, and orange spray paint.
- Step 1: Peel the labels off the wine bottles (or whatever type of bottles you choose to use). Soaking the bottles in warm water first should help the labels peel off easily.
- Step 2: Spray paint the bottles. Spray them all completely white first then spray paint the middle of the bottles orange and finish by spray painting the bottoms of the bottles yellow. Let spray paint dry completely.
- Finish off by sticking some tree branches or fall flowers in your bright seasonal DIY vases.
If you love the rustic charm of fall, this DIY project is for you. It’s simple, quick, and free. All you need is a fallen tree log or thick branch, a hole saw drill bit (and drill), and some tealight candles. You’ll most likely be able to find a log or thick tree branch on the ground in your neighborhood. If not, check your local park or forest. You’ll be able to find one there. The log can be any size you want as long as it can fit on your dining room table, mantel, or in your fireplace. Simply drill holes into your log deep enough to fit a tealight. If you want the holes to be evenly spaced, measure out the distance between holes first before drilling. After creating your holes, put tealight candles in and marvel at how easy it was to create a stunning fall centerpiece.
