Five Fall Hacks, Ideas and DIY Tips
1. Longer-Lasting Candles: Sounds weird, but there is a tip out there that says putting your candles in the freezer before lighting them prolongs the burn time. Not sure if this works, but it’s worth a try.
Note: Be careful with candles and make sure you always are in the room or present with them lit!

2. Pinterest Wall Board: Find your favorite fall pictures online, print them on large glossy computer paper, use tape to stick the pictures in the pattern you would like and voilà—you have an in-person Pinterest board.
Note: The fun thing about this idea is that you can do it year-round!
3. Pumpkin Painting Party: Even though Halloween is over, you can still paint pumpkins and can glue glitter or write on them with markers or paint pens.
Note: Another cute idea is to carve yellow bell peppers and decorate with these festive fruits and veggies.
4. No Fireplace? Play One on Your TV: You can create the same atmosphere (well, almost the same vibe as if you had a fireplace, just no heat) by finding an eight-hour loop or even a several-hour fireplace video on YouTube and playing it on your TV or home computer screen.
5. Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Coffee: First, make your coffee. Add your almond milk or creamer of choice, then take pumpkin purée and use a spoonful, then add agave or sweetener (if your creamer isn’t already sweetened) and some cinnamon or pumpkin spice on top. For an extra treat, add some whipped cream…delish!
