While summer days are still upon us, the dawn of yet another fall is slowly but surely appearing on the horizon. And as the days start getting shorter, what once required AC and short sleeves will eventually transition into cozy sweater weather. 

As temperatures gradually lower and the autumnal chill sneaks into the air, what better way to adjust to the changing seasons than by decorating your home with some adorable and delightful DIY features? 

Here are three DIY ideas to help you fall in love with the upcoming fall season.

Patchwork Pillows

What’s more welcoming than opening the door and being greeted with the view of an inviting sofa decorated with adorable patchwork pillows? 

It inspires a feeling of familiar comfort with the nostalgic sentiment of something homemade. Patchwork pillows are incredibly easy to make, with the beauty of being entirely customizable to fit your desired colour scheme, patterns and overall aesthetic. 

Whether you want it to be a pop of colour or focal piece or provide a neutral background for something more vibrant, patchwork pillows are an excellent option for those looking to experiment with fabric DIYs. 

You can use any fabric to make a patchwork pillow, but we particularly love this in-style colour scheme.
