Who says that crafting has to be just for kids?
Crafting should be able to be enjoyed by all ages, and with arguably the best season for arts and crafts already starting, what better time to start planning some fun and beautiful fall crafts that can take pride of place in your home.
From homemade fall wreaths to DIY dried leaf garlands and cinnamon spiced candles, keep reading to discover the best DIY fall crafts for adults that you should be making right now!
If you are looking for a cost-effective yet stylish way to update your porch for fall, then look no further than a DIY wreath. Choose from a wide variety of designs based on your own personal sense of style, such as a natural-looking olive branch wreath that is full of green foliage, a simple grapevine wreath that is adjourned with dried white flowers, or a pine cone wreath that smells divine.
Alternatively, if you want to create a more sinister-looking wreath that will be the envy of all your neighbors come Halloween, why not make a bat wreath using just some twine and black card?
Rustic harvest signs
If you love a rustic-looking home accessory, then you will adore these easy to make wooden harvest signs that can be hung either inside your home or outdoors. All you need is a piece of unrefined wood and some galvanized metal letters – you can pick these up super cheap using a Hobby Lobby Coupon. Then simply choose some fall-colored ribbon to decorate around the edges and either place on a mantelpiece or hang on the wall.
Plus, don’t think you are confined to just the word “harvest,” you can choose whatever fall-related word or phrase you like, or you could even add a personal touch such as “The Smith Family Pumpkin Patch This Way.”
Yes, you can buy fall scented candles from your local store but don’t you think it would be so more satisfying to make your own? Then not only can you add whatever spices you love the most, but you can also choose the exact shape, size, and design of your candle.
Not sure where to start?
Making your own cinnamon-infused fall candle couldn’t be any easier. Simply place one brick or block of wax into a saucepan, heat on a medium heat, and sort until melted. Then add 15 drops of essential oils and 1tsp of ground cinnamon and mix well. Finish by pouring into a jar, adding the wick, and allowing to set.
Other spices you may want to try out include:
- Vanilla bean
- Pumpkin spice
Dried leaf garland
Do you hate picking up all the leaves from your backyard? If yes, then this is the DIY fall craft for you. Give this tedious task some purpose and re-use your fallen leaves to create a beautiful and budget-busting leaf garland. The only additional item that you need to create this super simple craft is some yarn, and you are good to go.
Alternatively, if your summer hanging baskets are looking a little past their best, why not replace them with a garland or two. You could even top them with a vibrant orange ribbon for an even more striking effect.
