Autumn is coming! And after posting my pumpkin spice cupcakes the first day of September, it will be no surprise that I am more than excited for this! Mostly because I spent it in Florida last year and didn’t really get to experience autumn. So this year, I decided to make up for that by going all out. I may have gone a bit overboard with the decorations. But hey, the cozier, the better!
I just love those rainy days, where you just sit on your bed by the window, with an oversized sweater and some big socks. Fairylights on and candles burning. A cup of tea with some fresh baked cookies, and a nice movie or tv show. Preferably Once Upon a Time, Harry Potter or Shrek. Or any Disney movie actually. I’m just all about that cozyness haha. So I made a little trip to some garden centers and flower shops, and took some strolls through the forest to collect some autumnal things.
Obviously, I had to get some autumnal candles. So I went to this small local interior shop to get some scented candles. I went for these Yankee candles, two glass ones and a couple of smaller ones. The bigger ones are the scents “Spices Orange” and “Sea, Salt & Sage”. The smaller ones are the scents “Salted Caramel”, “Warm Spice”, “Blissful Autumn” and “Winter Glow”. Yes, I know, it’s still a long time till winter, but it just smelled sooo good. And of course I also got some non-scented candles to not get a scent-overdose.
One of the things I did with these non-scented candles, was make an autumn plate. I got this really cute stone ‘bowl’, at a local flower shop for a couple of euros. I just put some fake leaves and berries into it. And also some acorns and small pine cones. Lastly, I added a small white munchkin and a green candle. And that’s it, your homemade autumn plate!
The next decoration is a little DIY project. What you will need is a stick, some rope, scissors, a needle and autumn decorations of your choice. I collected some little orange lanterns from our garden and pierced them from top to bottom. I placed them on the rope, alternating them with some fake leaves or berries. On the bottom, I tied some pine cones for extra weight. Repeat this four or five times, and tied the ropes onto the stick.
And this is the end result! I put mine on my door, but it will look fun anywhere really. It’s just a nice, autumnal touch. And I of course already hung my Happy Halloween flag! I got it last Halloween when I was working at Disney World, which was actually the first time I got to experience Halloween. I got it at the cutest place called “The Writers Stop”, one of my work locations!
And this is what my room looks like at the moment! Everywhere you look, you’ll see some touches of autumn. And of course, candles everywhere! And I even got this cool Halloween lantern.
I also dressed up some of the candles I already had in my room. By putting some acorns and pine cones around the candles it immediately gets a more cozy feeling.
And that’s it, even a little autumn room tour! I adore these little details, they just make my room feel so much more cozy.
Let me know if you get any inspiration from this post, or if you recreate any of the DIY’s!
