When to decorate in autumn?
Autumn officially begins at the equinox in late September. As the month begins, many eagerly unbox their fall decorations. The back-to-school vibe and the palpable refreshment in the air are often hinted at. This is when you might start seeing pumpkins, gourds, and colorful foliage adorning your home.
Then, as October rolled around, there was a pleasant shift. For those of you with a soft spot for Halloween, this month is prime time to let your spooky spirit shine. Cobwebs, witches, ghosts and goblins begin to appear, turning the space into a haunted haven.
But the fall festivities don't stop there. November has its own charms. As Halloween decorations fall, many replace them with symbols of thanksgiving and a good harvest. Turkey, cornucopia and earth tones take center stage. This heightens the anticipation of the Thanksgiving feast.
Now, you're ready to decorate, but the biggest challenge is figuring out "how". Wondering what fall crafts you can make with a laser machine? Well, you need to let off steam.
