Six Super Easy Crafts For Fall

September 13, 2014



 Feed your need to craft with these six super easy projects for fall!  

Here are six of my most favorite fall craft projects. They are inexpensive, super easy and will have your home looking elegant and festive in no time flat!




Don't throw those old puzzle pieces away! Craft yourself a unique frame that can be used as an elegant home décor accent or a Halloween picture frame. This one is fun for adults and kids alike!  



Grab a package of fabric leaves at the dollar store and a bit of paint and this sweet Tom Turkey can be yours. He looks great on a front door, a mantle or a wall! If you can draw a number eight, you can make this guy in a flash!



Updating your home for fall doesn't have to be an expensive or labor intensive proposition. A few appropriately dressed candles can cozy up the mood in no time flat. Check out a few of my easiest ideas.



Love the look of a handmade wooden sign, but not great at lettering...and don't own a fancy machine? Well, check out my cheat ~ perfect results every single time and a price tag that will make you smile.



Halloween may not be my favorite holiday, but who wouldn't love to have a few of these cuties hanging around? A little paint and a lot of imagination can transform any pumpkin into a sweet holiday character.



Looks like we're right back where we started, aren't we? I am a master of recycling! Take those pumpkin piece puzzles, add a cardstock name and you have a fabulously original place card for your Thanksgiving or harvest party guests!

I may not be quite ready to say goodbye to summer, but at least I have a few fun ways to make fall a little less....cold!

How do you usher in the season?

  3. Good evening dear Kim!

    There is so much to say here....I love fall crafts, and tomorrow I'm starting my decoration. We here in Minnesota are starting to feel the chill and the colors on the trees are starting to change. I went back to teaching on August 25, and we were all sweltering in the heat, but now it really feels like back to school.

    Thank you for coming by; it must be hard for parents who have enjoyed the sound and sights of their children at summer play. We teachers have the honor of being with your children and watching them grow and create. I wish you a lovely introduction to fall as you and your family enjoy those gentle moments that will never be forgotten.

    HUGS! Anita

    1. Thank you Anita! I am a teacher myself, although I haven't been in a classroom for many years. Even now, the "new year" always seems to start in September, blank pages, fresh weather. I do miss my kids during the day, but I guess that's what makes the vacations so wonderful!

  4. Cute ideas! I wish the urge to craft would hit me but really - not so much.

  10. Your blog title "Exquisitely Unremarkable" is truly a misnomer. Your ideas and creations are very remarkable and creative. Just the idea of sticking that candle and ring of berries in a clear glass compote is more creative than ideas many people would come up with. It's an inexpensive, creative way to bring light and decor to a table. Love the little pumpkins with googly eyes! I made a puzzle piece pumpkin for my decor last year - it is on black felt and put in a picture frame - so I postively love the puzzle piece name placards. They will be made this year for my Halloween/Thanksgiving table! You are very inspirational!

    1. Barb, thank you for your lovely, lovely comments. You truly just made my whole day and I am smiling ear to ear! I hope you come back and visit often and have a great day!! :)

  11. Ah! Instead of a compote bowl, I can put a candle and berry .... why can't I think of the word?? it's 5' long with beaded berries scattered along it's length ... in the amber pitcher. Maybe I'll make a pumpkin of puzzle pieces to go under the pitcher! Yep, you and your fans are a never-ending source of ideas! Thanks!
    Enjoy the fall weather up there. I'm in East Texas now, so, while eventually the leaves will change some, the weather right now is a cool 93 degrees. (Seriously, that's cool!)
