Decorating and cooking on a college budget is hard to do. But when Fall comes around and you’re inspired to become Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker, you have to cave. Here are inexpensive and adorable (and tasty!) ways to bring the season into your own apartment or dorm.
Painting pumpkins are a fall must. But a Crayola-colored looking pumpkin isn’t something you want to display in your preppy room. To paint this adorable pumpkin, simply paint a base coat of white, while painting the stem gold. After it dries sketch the monogram letter with pencil and paint Modge Podge within the sketch. Top it off while it’s still wet with glitter and you have yourself a festive and fun pumpkin.
During Fall, everything you bake revolves around pumpkin. Even with the seasonal big chunky sweaters, we still care about healthy eating. Here’s a clean eating recipe for pumpkin spice muffins. It only uses three ingredients so it’s quick and inexpensive to make! Simply mix spice cake mix, applesauce, and pumpkin puree and you’ve got yourself a tasty treat to pair with your pumpkin spice latte.
Scarves are the perfect accessory for any fall outfit. However, if you wear the same scarf with every outfit it starts to look repetitive. Instead of buying more scarves, simply change the way you wear them. Featured above is a unique, but easy twist to wearing a scarf.
