Welcome the Outdoors In with these Nature-inspired DIYs

The days are growing shorter and the air crisper, which can only mean one thing — it won’t be long before you’re ‘chilling’ in your flat until the weather warms again. Prepare a season of indoor entertaining and low-key leisure time by bringing the cozy character of the outdoors into your environment with these picturesque DIY projects!

Whether fresh-picked or hand-pressed, floral accents will bring your abode into bloom. We adore the brilliant, bright colors of paperstichblog’s blooming pendant light, while we were charmed by timeless beauty of the flower pressing tutorial from Veda House.


Show your rustic refinement by crafting a pine cone centerpiece inspired by See Jane Blog’s for your kitchen table, or transform the entire room with a scenic, sophisticated chandelier like this piece from Flying House.


Try teaching an old log new tricks, just like 11Eureka did with a drill and dazzling metallic nails. Or, go ahead and plant these anytime leaf ornaments around your pad with instructions from Autumn Anthology!

About Chris

Every day, Chris gets one to three scoops closer to his dream of an ice cream-only diet. If he's not indulging his sweet tooth, Chris is using his child-like energy levels to play rubber snake pranks, converse with countless puns, and capture the world in photos as he walks. If you aspire to have a perfect Pittsburgh accent or have a passion for periodicals, he would love to talk over afternoon coffee.

    That floral pendent is just gorgeous! What a beautiful idea, though I would be bummed to do all that work just to have it last a day or two…maybe there is a way to make it look not-tacky with fake florals? Hmm….
