My Favorite Fall Crafts
Today it is official… FALL IS HERE! Bring on the pumpkin spice everything; bring on apple cider, Halloween decor, and costume creating! The time is now. In the spirit of my favorite season, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite fall crafts that I have done over the years to get you into the mood (if you haven’t already been in the mood for the past month like this girl!) I’ve been blogging for quite some time now (10 years) and have amassed several projects, but these are the ones I would happily recreate and still use in my home.
Owl Wreath: This wreath was a recent project and it took me less than an hour… simple and cute and perfect for a house with kiddos. With a toddler in the house, I am toning down the creepy decor a bit this year. No need to give the kid nightmares!
Pumpkin Bucket Planter: Upcycle those old trick-or-treating pumpkin buckets into fun porch planters with outdoor paint and creativity.
Bat Banner: I completed this project 7 years ago, 7! Man that makes me feel old. I still have it and put it out each year though and am pleased with how well it has worn over the years, especially since it’s made of cardstock and paper.
Fall Wall Hanging Banner: For less than $10, you can make a fabulous and large wall hanging to suit the season.
Free “Fall is my Jam” Printable: You can print this simple graphic I created and use it anywhere in your fall decor. My copy actually got wet- oops! I need to print out a new one for my soon to be kitchen shelves!
Copper Corn Door Hanging: This project was so simple but one of my favorite boho style pieces. I recall when I was a child, my mother bought “Indian corn” every year for decoration. It holds a special place in my nostalgic heart and I loved having this on my door. FYI, don’t hang it somewhere that squirrels can access it… you’re welcome for that nugget of helpful information. You can guess how I learned.
Fairy House Pumpkins: These were created when Emmy was totally into fairy houses, and we had a blast making them together. To be 100% transparent, I would no longer buy these kinds of pumpkins new as they are just adding to the build up of toxins and plastics in our environment, but I would buy them used and create with those.
Dipped & Gilded Mini-Pumpkins: This was a simple project from 2013, and one of my all time favorites. I just loved the way they looked. Plus, miniature pumpkins will always have my heart. I have a thing for miniatures. In fact, you can find my dollhouse here!
Tiered Pumpkin with Dried Flowers: I used this as a wedding cake inspired centerpiece on my fall table, and I just loved the natural boho vibe it had. I was really into dried flowers that year, having dried my own peonies and roses. I also made dreamcatchers with them.
Well, that is everything I have for you today! Let me know if you like these kinds of posts. I’ve had 10 years on this blog and can dig up all sorts of past projects to reshare them with you. Of course, I admit that some projects are just better off staying buried in the past. 😉
