I’m finally coming to terms with the fact that Summer is ending and that Fall is right around the corner. One of my favorite parts of Fall is decorating and crafting. With Summer over and Winter on its way, Fall is a time to focus on the home and Autumn crafts often reflect this focus on family. Love it! Here are 10 fun ideas for Fall crafts to warm your home and welcome family.
1. Wooden Sign
Wood crafts are some of my favorites. They can go in any room and have a lot of versatility. They can also make for some unique gifts. Her Tool Belt shares how to make this Fall sign on her blog. You can also find other wooden sign projects here.
2. Rustic Jars
Mason and canning jars can make for some very cute and easy projects! To make this Fall craft, paint some jars in Autumn colors and top with twine string. Before wrapping the burlap strips around each jar, use a stencil and acrylic paint to spell out a Fall message or word of your choice. Finish the project by filling the jars with Autumn foliage.

3. Scaredy Pot
Have fun making this scarecrow pot pal. Hobby Lobby shares the DIY here.
4. Wood Pumpkins
Place these wood pumpkins on your porch or in your entry as a perfect way to welcome guests into your home. Not much more to this project than painting and a little gluing. Super simple!
5. Fabric Pumpkins

8. Pumpkin Candy Pots
These pumpkin candy pots will certainly make some mouths happy! Paint a terracotta pot orange and top with a brown painted wooden knob. Use floral wire for the stem. Then just fill with your favorite Fall candies! Full tutorial found on Real Housemoms.
I know it’s a current trend, but I’m totally loving chalkboard decor right now! (I suppose it’s the teacher in me!) Chalkboard projects are really fun and very simple to customize. Here, they’ve painted the bottom of an antique serving tray with chalk paint and then glued Fall foliage around the edges. So pretty!
10. Personalized Gloves
Craft up some dollar store gloves by stitching special words or phrases on the fingers. What a fun holiday gift idea for neighbors, children, or teachers! Find a stem-stitch tutorial here.
