Hi pumpkins

You may or may not have noticed that my WHI "theme" I have all year long changed to something different: fall. Some of you who follow me for a long time know that I change to a fall theme yearly. I will then post, heart and write anything fall. So that's Why this article is fall themed.

I started doing this 2 years ago back in 2017. In that year fall started ti become my favorite season. I know it's only august but my excitement for falls Always comes early. Even earlier than last year! But this has some pro and cons.


  • fall seems to last longer
  • enough prep time
  • fall is just the cosiest season (and Christmas too but it all starts in fall)


  • there are no fall decorations in store where I live yet.

And that's litteraly the only con. We do have the perfect fall weather here in Belgium but the one thing missing are the decoration in the house which will only start coming in stores hakfway through september. SO that's Why I thought of doing this article. Today's article is about Fall DIY to already bring something fall to your home.



This is an easy and cute DIY! You can hang the garland wherever you want and it immediately gives you the autumn vibes you need.

what you'll need:

  • fake or real leaves
  • rose gold spray (optional)
  • thin rope/fairylights
  • glue
  • scissors

Take the fave leaves and cut them as short as you like. It's very easy cause all you have to do is glue them on a rope or fairylights. You can also use tape if that's easier (I'm messy lol). You can add as much leaves as you want to. You can make a thin or thick garland. It's all up to you!


  • cute tekst in a nice font
  • sillhouette cutting machine or scissors.
  • plain doormat
  • stencil brush
  • fabric paint
  • painters tape
  • gloves (optional)

here's an SVG file of a print/font/sentence you can use or you can just make your own on word:

this door mat is so aesthetically pleasing for your home and is also a great flatlay object. You got to cut out (preferably with a flexible cutting machine) the letters and spray or paint the words onto a mat you can find in lots of stores.

  • sharpie
  • spoon
  • knife

this is a classic and cliché but now pumpkins are starting to grow we just can't wait to carve the most spooky faces in them. I'm not going to tell you how to do it 'cause it's just something Almost everyone knows how to do it.


  • pinecones
  • fairylights
  • a glass vase / bowl

This is probably the easiest but also very cute and aesthetically pleasing. Just put pinecones and fairylights together in a glass vase and voila.
