Autumn colour combinations

5

Here are some warm colour combinations that match the crunchy leaves and other goodness of autumn. From a range of shades of orange to greens and purples. Autumn colours can be bright and welcoming as well as warm and cosy and we feel as if we’ve found some examples that really prove this point. Take a look for yourselves!

Autumn DIYs

With Autumn officially starting tomorrow we’ve found some great little DIYs that you can make with the nature that comes with the season.

By far the best part of this season is the falling autumnal leaves. The colours and the crunch under foot is a sure sign that autumn has arrived. Here is a great way to preserve this and get it into the home. The middle image shows a great way to preserve actual leaves. Hanging them on a stick from the stem, or attaching ribbon or fishing line to the leaf, and arranging them into different heights creates a perfect mid fall wall piece. If you don’t want to just use normal leaves you can paint them with glitter (left) or make leaves with watercolour paintings.

Acorns are another great part of autumn. Painting them or again hanging them can create the perfect little decorations for the home. Fill vases with them, or place clusters around the house, they will add a bit of seasonal colour to the place.

This is a cute way of getting pattern and the new season into your room. This DIY can be as simple or as complex as you want. This can be done on any size or colour stone and makes a great little decoration for the home.

The left image shows what happens when you hammer a leaf onto paper. The colour pigment on the leaf is transferred to the paper. This is a great thing to do to make pictures to put on the wall or invitations and cards for the season. Like with the acorns painting pine cones is also a great way of getting seasonal colour into the room. You’ll have to wait for the pine cones to open, but when they do, adding bright colours to the tips (as above) makes a great little seasonal display.
