As we move from Summer into Autumn the day and evenings become cooler. The leaves start to change colour and fall from the trees. It’s my favourite time of year. Walking through the woods seeing all the oranges and browns all around us. But with a change of season comes preparation. Summer clothes need to be packed away. The garden will need a tidy, fences painted, and a last cut of the lawn, the Summer furniture will need putting in the garage. Then inside the home, the cosy throws and bedding will need and airing, maybe getting an Autumn clear-out and clean before Christmas. So as you can see Autumn brings a time of change and a need to get ready for the colder months.
For this month’s Pinterest roundup I’m focusing on all things Autumn, like activities and crafts, home, garden, Autumn fashion, and food. The Britmums community of bloggers have been sharing their very best pins on these topics.
Autumn activities and crafts
I’m always looking for toddler craft ideas and Hayley from Devon Mama shares her tissue paper pumpkin craft. It’s sure to keep them busy and will also look good as a centre piece on your table as shown in the pin. Craft and gardening boxes for kids are great fun. Lisa over at Lisa’s Notebook shares things you can make with leaves, twigs, and acorns. I like the idea of using leaves like papier-mache to make a leaf bowl. Lisa’s pin is full of Autumn cheer. If you are looking to make your own wood blocks for the home, this craft is for you from Cerys at Rainy Day Mum. Cery’s pin shows what you can make using your inkjet printer and photoshop.
With the colder weather, it can take its toll on your hair, don’t worry as Emma from The Mini Mes and Me has 7 tips for beautiful Autumn hair. Plus minimal effort is involved which is fine with me when you have two little ones running around. The pin for this blog post shows hair most of us want, long, wavy and in great condition. If you are pregnant at this time of year, Sarah from Run Jump Scrap has your wardrobe sorted with some gorgeous Autumn/Winter styles to keep you and baby warm as well as looking stylish.
The colder morning’s mean you need a good breakfast to help you get on with your day, Rachel from Marvellous Mrs P shares her yummy pumpkin spiced overnight oats on Pinterest. Rachel’s pin is perfect for Autumn, it shares an image of warmth and comfort. Karen over at The Mad House of Cats and Babies has a delicious recipe for pumpkin lentil soup with a maca boost. Karen’s pin shows us the wonderful healthy soup in all its glory. It’s suitable for vegetarians and is dairy and gluten-free. If you are looking for a little kick this Autumn, why not have a go at making Sarah’s rosehip liqueur from Craft Invaders. She says she can’t promise it will stop you catching a cold but it will cheer you up if you have one!
I’m loving Charlotte’s ideas from Team Stein to give your home the hygge feel this Autumn. Her pin is full of the colours of fall with pumpkins and mulled wine. Warm throws and Autumn hues are great tips to give your home the feel of Autumn. Fran from Back with a Bump shares her Autumn home-style wishlist. Cushions are a must-have in the living room as well as a snuggly rug.
