Autumn Hacks You Have Try

1. Bake the bugs out of your pinecones. Everyone loves decorating with pinecones. If you decided to collect them while on a nature hike, remember bugs live inside of them. So pop them in 200 degrees oven for 45 to make sure you rid them of all the little critters. Get the how-to at Life of Charmings.

2. Preserve your pumpkins. Pumpkins are notorious for rotting. Keep them looking fresh and new by spraying them or soaking them in bleach water. Get the how-to at The Chic Site.

3. Faux pumpkin flowerpot. Buy a faux pumpkin at the craft store and carefully cut off the top. Then add dirt and a plant. What's even better is that you can reuse this pot each fall. Get the how-to at Rook No. 17.
