Fall is in full swing and there are all the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, carved pumpkins and freshly-picked apples to show for it. But while these fall festivities are all sorts of fun, they’re also outdoors, which generally means it’s freezing (and sometimes rainy and windy and miserable). If you’re not a huge fan of the cold, here are eleven perfect fall activities you can do without leaving your home.
- Bake apple everything
Apple pies aren’t the only fun apple snack you can make – from apple chips to baked apples to applesauce, the options are limitless. So choose your favorite, turn on the oven, and get going. Not only will you make your house warm and toasty, it’ll smell amazing from the baking apples and cinnamon you’re bound to use.
- Make these pumpkin spice delicacies
Pumpkin flavored foods are all the rage, so instead of breaking the bank buying all your favorite pumpkin goodies, make your own! Try out these delicious pumpkin cheesecake bites!
- Go online shopping for sweaters
Sweaters are arguably the best part of fall – they’re warm and fuzzy and comfortable, and if you find the right one, you can wear it to work and in bed.
- Dye your hair a warm fall color
While pastels and neons are all the rage for summer, muted tones and warm colors are perfect for fall. If you’ve been wanting to try out that chestnut brown, or auburn, or dusty blond, now is the time. Grab your BFF and your new hair color, and get your dye on.
- Make crafts out of fallen leaves
Fallen colored leaves can’t just make childish wreaths, you can also make beautiful mason jars, pretty rocks, and candle holders.
- Put together a fall playlist
Look through your iTunes library and start making your “Fall 2015” playlist. Choose your favorite fall songs and listen on repeat.
- Practice your nail art
Nail art is beautiful, and fall is the best time to try out your new favorite colors and styles.
- Watch your favorite fall TV episodes
All the Thanksgiving episodes of Friends, anyone?
- Make cinnamon-scented candles
Candles are actually really simple to make – all you need is wax, some cinnamon, and cute jars, and you’ve got yourself an adorable candle.
- Drink your favorite coffees and teas while reading a great book
Have a favorite book? Wrap yourself in blankets, make some tea, and reread your all-time fave book.
- Host your own paint and sip night
Gather your favorite ladies, buy some wine, and stop by the craft store to get some canvasses and paint, and make your own apartment decorations!
Do you love fall but love it even more from the comforts of your couch? Then hopefully these eleven activities will have you and your friends set all fall long.
