6 Quick DIY Ideas for Fall from @cydconverse | DIY ideas, craft projects, entertaining tips, party ideas and more!

Ready or not, fall is coming! With Labor Day crossed off the calendar and the start of school in our area this week, we are officially in a losing battle with summer. The mornings and evenings are just ever so crisp around the edges now, but the days are still sunny and hot. Mornings are a little darker, sunsets come a little sooner, but just yesterday we took advantage of the perfect weather and got some late season planting done to get a jump on spring. September in the northeast is a pretty incredible month. It’s the best of summer with little to none of the humidity. It brings the promise of fall and all of those things we love here about the season (like fire colored foliage, apple picking, pumpkin carving and hay rides), while still feeling largely like summer. It’s a perfect transition month, when we come back from the lake and the river, the kids go back to school and we start to feel that nesting bug hit. So if you, like me, love September as a month to get things done around the house or get a little crafty, I’m sharing 6 quick DIY ideas perfect for September today! These are a few of my favorites from the archives and things I still use around our house daily. Pin them for later and enjoy!
