Whether we like it or not, it’s that time again! The end of August. For some of us that means pulling out our cozy sweaters and whipping up a Pumpkin Spice Latte, but for others, that means throwing on our backpacks, packing up the car and heading back to school. No matter what state you’re living in or loving on this fall — your hometown, your college town or your football team’s town — we have some awesome DIYs to show and spread that state love.
