I know it is still summer, but autumn will be here before you know it. Crafts have always been enjoyable for me, but I haven’t really been doing much of it for quite some time now. Since fall is my favorite time of year I thought I would round up some ideas from my fellow bloggers to try out myself and to share with you. All of the photos below are those of the original creator of the project that have said I could use them.
by Where the Smiles Have Been
At dinner we often do “3 Good Things” which is where we each tell three things good about our day. Extending this idea to hang up this thankful chalkboard would be great I think. We all have bad days and I think seeing a reminder of what we are thankful for can really lift our spirits up.
No-Sew Patchwork Pumpkins
I remember doing wreaths a bit like this years ago where you pushed the fabric into the Styrofoam forms. Easy to do but it take a while. These little pumpkins use a lot fewer pieces of fabric though so I’m sure it would go quicker. You can totally customize these with any fabric you like. I might make some with Halloween fabric, but definitely some with autumnal colors and prints as well.
DIY Fall Leaf Bowl
by To Simply Inspire
One of my favorite craft projects I have from my son is a clay leaf bowl that he made in elementary school. While it is gorgeous to me, it is a kid craft. This leaf bowl is much more the adults to make and looks like something you would buy in the store. You have got to love Mod Podge!
DIY Felted Dryer Ball Pumpkins
by Garden Matter
Felted things always strike me, in a good way, for some reason. Maybe it is because they remind me of soft warm sweaters we all start to wear when there is a chill in the air? This project both makes something decorative, but I can also use it in the dryer, especially with the twins clothes since we don’t use fabric softener on their laundry.
Fall Votive Holder
by Simplee Thrifty
Autumn leaves are just so gorgeous. This is a simple idea for a project as well. I think using different sized mason jars and candle holders would be great for a grouping. These are also the perfect place to use the battery operated candles for a safer display.
So did you see any projects you might try yourself? If you have some of your own you would like to share with me please feel free to leave the link in the comments. I would love to see how crafty you are!
How often do you craft?
