Fall is a time of year when many people spend cozy nights indoors, enjoying the company of their friends and loved ones. At the Monarch, some of our residents especially enjoy decorating their apartments for the long nights of winter! Making your own fall decorations makes everything a little more personal and meaningful.
These fall decoration ideas give you a chance to personalize your space this fall, without spending a lot of money at a store. With the right materials and a little creativity, you can make your apartment the perfect place to spend time as fall turns into winter!
Buy a medium-size pumpkin at the grocery store and paint the silhouette of a scene on the side of the pumpkin. You might paint a farmhouse and a tractor (this is Iowa, after all), or a haunted house and a jack-o-lantern! Invite the kids to help you decide what would look best on your pumpkin.
Corn Husk Wreath
Buy a round wreath wire and glue corn husks to the frame in a criss-crossing pattern. Tie a ribbon around the base of the corn husk wreath to make your decoration a little more folksy and attractive!
Witch Hat Pumpkin
Paint a pumpkin white, then use that white canvas to paint a black witch hat in the center! Place your witch hat pumpkin in the middle of your table as a centerpiece on Halloween night.
Buy another round wire frame for a wreath, then go on a nature walk and collect as many pine cones as you can find. Glue the pine cones to the wreath wire using a hot glue gun. Finish the wreath by tying a ribbon of a deep, dark autumn color on the bottom of the wreath, in a bow.
Hanging Pinecone Ribbons
Find a thick, velvety ribbon, then go on a nature walk and collect pine cones along the path. Attach lengths of ribbon to the pine cones, then tie all the ribbons together in a bow. Dangle the pine cone bow from your door.
