I know there’s still a month of summer left, but my mind is on the fast track to fall.

It’s the best time of year for entertaining, decorating and wardrobe re-vamping. There are so many fun and creative projects to try in the fall, and one of my favorite DIY project supplies is burlap. It’s a quintessential fall fabric that makes anything look rustic and chic. Many DIYers use burlap because of its simplicity and versatility.

While these fabulous burlap projects are all great for fall, you can put a seasonal spin on any of them to make any time of year!

This functional piece can be made with just a few supplies: a cardboard box, burlap, a hot glue gun, and acrylic paints. The result is a stylish piece of handmade decor that will add a pop of color and texture to any room. Use it to store beauty products on your bathroom counter, or trinkets and coasters on your living room table, or as a storage box to hold scarves on your bedroom dresser. You could even make more than one and create a visual decorative element by stacking them or displaying them next to each other.

You’ll find the instructions for making this at A Piece of Rainbow.

PILLOW COVERS

When you can’t find throw pillows at the store that fit your style, make your own at home! These are fun because you can decorate them to match any season or holiday, and you can even design each side differently to make the pillows reversible. If you know someone who is buying their first home or going away to college, this would be a special, personalized gift that would make their new space even more cozy.
