This is the time of the year when I’m itching to give my house a make-over. I don’t have a ton of cash to drop at the furniture store or Pier 1, so instead I’m doing as much as I can to DIY my decor using items I already own, stash, or can find really cheaply.
Today I’m rounding up my favorite inspiration & ideas from all over the Web. Read on:

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite tutorials on the Web for a DIY deck-the-halls bonanza.
First up, this autumn leaf bowl craft from Hello Lucky is deceptively simple – just a few supplies and you’re good to go! It would be a great craft to make with kids, if you’ve got ’em. Use these bowls to display holiday treats, pine cones, acorns, or floating candles!

I’m not sure if I’ve publicly made this confession here at the Patterned blog yet or not, but I have a bit of an addiction to garland. This one from 6th Street Design School is so simple, and yet the results are completely stunning!
