Whether you’re a DIY expert who’s always on sites like backyardtoolshed.com looking for new projects or just like to do an occasional craft DIY, making something all by yourself is a very satisfying feeling. I love the sense of accomplishment I feel and usually have DIY plans for every season! I don’t care that it isn’t officially Fall yet, it’s as good as Fall and I’m ready to start decking the place out in oranges and golds. Leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows-you name it, I’m ready for Fall.

Leaf-Inspired Easy DIY Fall Projects
One of the biggest mood-setting items for Fall is the changing of the leaves… They turn colors, the air smells of their crispness, and they slowly drift to the ground as they lazily anticipate the colder weather.
