25 Inspirational crafts to get creative this autumn!

Autumn could easily be my favorite season. Unlike most people, I love the autumn storms and the evenings getting darker. Not because I am a grim person (I really am not..), but because I love it to be home and make it cozy inside, while outside the rain is dropping on my window.

Candles, pine cones, pillows and throws… My knit wear display beautifully near my couch. And while normally, spring is the ultimate moment for most people to have a big house cleaning spree, I have mine in autumn. For the same reason I just told you. In autumn I am starting to nest.

And what do you need for a beautifully decorated fall home? That’s right! Decoration!
