Autumn Crafts to Brighten Up Your Decor

Autumn Crafts to Brighten Up your Decor
Autumn has returned, and along with its cooler temperatures and changing leaves comes the opportunity to explore your creative side and create some attractive fall-themed crafts. Whether your aim is to decorate your home, create lovely gifts for friends or family, or just simply to relieve stress and have fun, there are quite a few projects to choose from. Let's take a look at a few.

Leaf-themed bulletin board

This is a fun project for the whole family. You can gather a variety of beautiful, colored leaves that are readily available at this time of year and incorporate them into a bulletin board. The contents of the board can be almost anything you can imagine. Fill it with your kid's artwork, drawings, photos, writings,
popsicle sticks, and more. You can use items that you already have available or create some custom items especially for your project. The border is created with the leaves you have gathered. They can be attached with tape or glue. Be sure to scatter some in amongst the interior of the board as well for a more attractive design.

Fall wreaths

Making a fall wreath is a great way to bring the beauty of fall into your home. The possibilities here are also endless. Your first wreath project might be incorporating fall leaves and grasses for a fall harvest look. If you have access to small pine cones, they can be incorporated as well. Moss can be used as a filler and to hide the supporting wire or frame of your wreath.

After you have finished adding the leaves, grasses, and pine cones to your wreath, you might wrap a colorful ribbon around it to add a little flair and finish to your project.

Fall centerpieces

Fall centerpieces are a fun way to decorate the table where you will be having Thanksgiving dinner with your family. Collect pumpkins, gourds, leaves, fall fruit, or any variety of fall decors. (If you are using fruit, keep in mind that they do have a finite shelf life). Find yourself some fabric with fall colors and a basket of appropriate size. Line your basket with the fabric, then arrange the items you have collected to fill it with. You can top it off with a few leaves or acorns.

Halloween candles

Save those old tin cans and make yourself some Halloween candles. Use various sizes of cans, paint the outside with Halloween themes like orange jack o' lanterns and put a candle in the can. Arrange several sizes in a group for the best effect.
