Although the weather seems not to have been notified of the news, fall is here – and its countless pleasures are falling upon us day after day. The colorful leaves and the drying branches, while a bit sad – they signify the end of summer and the closing of winter – can serve as inspiration for some of the most wonderful DIY decorations of the season. Here are a few tips to get you started.
