Autumn Activities


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Oh yeah, I'm getting Autumnal up in yo' faces again. I just can't help myself. 

With a serious lust for the golden leafed season, I took to Pinterest to find inspiration for sweet and easy little projects that I can do by myself or with my Baby Glitter to bring a bit more Autumn into the home. 

If you would like to see the original articles that all of these images came from, HERE is the link to the board and you can go show them some luurrvvvee. Oh I'm feeling sassy today!



I would never have thought to put leaves in vases the way you do flowers but set against the blue, this is a gorgeous look. As luck would have it, I have some blue glassware so I'm excited to collect my foliage! (Did I just say 'foliage'?) 


Easy and cheerful. Matt and Darcy will both love this. Use a sharpie to ensure the pen marks don't smudge off. 


I am a chronic glass jar saver so I know what I'm going to do with them this week!


I love alternatives to carving pumpkins as I simply cannot deal with the mess and smell -urgh. This idea is super cute, easy and appeals to the crafty Mama. It's also something the tiniest of hands can get involved in. 


I'm not a big caramel fan but I'm going to use this as inspiration and find something to put in hollowed out apples to dip. I'm thinking maybe peanut butter?


Darcy would absolutely love this and it would be so easy to make. Not only would it be fun for her but it would also open up opportunities to learn new vocabulary and experience new textures. 

If I give some of these a go I will be sure to report back on how well they went. Would you be interested in trying any of these out? What kind of things do you do project-wise at this time of year?

Toodlepip!

  4. wow, all the above look lovely and not so hard to do! I think the leaves will go also with clear vases (an excuse for me, because I do not have blue one :D).
    I love these kind of projects, although I rarely make them :D

  15. Nutella in the apple would be beautiful! Mmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  16. Peanut butter or Nutella inside the apples would be nice...or a mix of the three? I am knitting a lot lately. Needles and yarn FTW!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Even though it's spring in Australia, I'm definitely going to try out the twig candle holders! They're so pretty!

  22. Like everyone else it seems (haha) I'm going to try the twig jars, but this just bought back loads of really good memories making those little tray gardens! Thanks Louise, this just brightened up my (birth)day :) x x x

  23. The buttons and spotty bow on the pumpkin looks so cute and you wouldn't have to get all mucky with it like carving!

  26. I really think you should try to dip the apples in a mix of cinnamon and sugar. That´s something we were aloud to do every friday in my Swedish preschool, and I and all the other children used to absolutely love it!

  28. I've already pinned so many of these to my pintrest! It's an addiction :) I think I'm going to do leaves in vases because I need something easy for my dorm room. Do you have any suggestions on ways to make my dorm more seasonal and homey?

  32. I LOVE the twig candle holders, these look so pretty and would look so nice all year round.
    The button pumpkin is right up my street too - i also hate the smell of pumpkin and it makes me hands feel horrible and sore after touching the flesh (ew cringey word alert).

    Great post with lots of ideas!!

  34. I never really thought of pumpkins themselves having a smell...... But I guess I'll have to do a sniff test while carving a pumpkin this year. ;) This time of year we like to can stuff, yes we are soooooooooooo old... OR just into traditions of grandmother's. One or the other. ;) xxoo

  35. This post excites me a lot and I hope to try some of them out! I love the glass one!

  39. Wow these are some great ideas! I'm also going to give some a try :D
    And I would love to see how yours turned out of course :D (Okay I'm a bit excited right now)
    Maybe put chocolate syrup in the hollowed-out apple? Sort of like a 'cold' chocolate fondue... I think I'll give that a try.

    ReplyDelete
  40. These are such great ideas! Autumn is my favourite season and I will definitely be doing these on a student budget! Thanks for the great ideas Louise & I love your blog and youtube channel!

  43. Autumn leaves are such underrated things, I think they're gorgeous, so it's such a good idea to use them as decorations! And I love the candle holder idea, sister's birthday present sorted ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the idea of dipping something in a hollowed out apple.. I think I'd use melted chocolate :) And the oranges with faces are cute :)

    Autumn is still my favourite season and I remember going for walks with my mummy and picking up the chestnuts which we would later use for crafting chestnut men and animals, similar to these :

  98. Ooh! I really love the glass and twig idea. I can just see them scattered around my living room, and they would look nice with a candle in them. It would give a lovely glow and winter effect. I loved this post, it has so many great ideas, can't wait to try them out. xxx

  105. Those candles look fabulous, so rustic! I wish I had the chance to make that - living in London, there's not exactly trees everywhere to go picking twigs from.

    Although, I have seen people doing much weirder. Maybe I could get away with it *chuckles manaically*
