DIY Fall Crafts

Fall is upon us and so comes the desire to stay in and craft. At least for me. There's nothing I like better than to be nice and cozy inside working on a project on a blustery day. 

 If you feel the same then I've got you covered with LOTS of creative fall crafts and DIY projects.

Let's get started with some pumpkin crafts. Specifically the toilet paper pumpkin. This craft has been around for ages. You'll want to check out this version though, complete with varying sizes AND a new method of wrapping the fabric.

Need an inexpensive craft project? Try these cardboard pumpkins! Grab an old sturdy box and transform it into these darling pumpkins. Attach them to an old board to display if desired.

One of my most popular posts is how to make pinecone flowers. I used them to dress up some candles.

I love these yarn wrapped fall letters by Repeat Crafter Me. I especially love the embroidered felt embellishments - so cute!

Turkey crafts are a must in the fall. I found this Turkey Embroidery Hoop Art by Do Small Things with Love ages ago. I love those colors! Unfortunately, the site is no longer up.

I love the simplicity of this! And you know I always have canning lids hanging around. Canning Jar Lid Pumpkin by About Family Crafts.

Do you love to sew? I made this fall table runner with these darling orange fabrics. Switch up the colors and you could display this any time of year.

I love rustic... and these reclaimed wood pumpkins fit the bill. Head over to Finding Home to see how she made them. (page is no longer available, but I leave it here for inspiration)

Another fun project are these Thankful Journals. Grab some scrapbook paper and plain paper and whip up these sewn paper journals in no time.

You can always make a fall wreath with flowers and pinecones to welcome autumn.

A classic fall tradition is to do a leaf rubbing. Gather all the different kinds of leaves, place them under a piece of paper and trace over them with the side of a crayon. 
I took it a step further and we traced them on a piece of fabric and then turned that material into a leaf rubbed pillow cover. A fun way to display your creations.

One of the easiest decor items I ever made was this Indian Corn Swag. It's a super quick and easy way to spruce up the porch for fall.

You know those faux pumpkins you can get at the store? Well, I added yarn to the pumpkins.  I think it adds a cool look to them and it's easy to do.

Love to embroider? Try this free Happy Fall embroidery pattern.

I love me a good wooden pumpkin. I made some of these decopauged ones for table decorations last Thanksgiving.

These barnwood pumpkins are the same pattern as above, but cut them out of old barn wood for an entirely different look.

These fun little 2X4 turkeys are embellished with large popsicle sticks and scrapbook paper. They're a fun project for teens and adults.

I will continue to add to this list as I create (or find) new fall projects that I just have to share. 

Now go make something for fall!
