20 Easy Craft And Decor Ideas For Fall


That festive fall feeling begins before you even enter the house with this quick garden flag craft.

Once inside, you can tour the living room and pick up a few tips to bring fall into your own space.

I decorated my kitchen for fall in a jiffy and it cost me less than ten bucks.

My fall kitchen decor for last year was equally as simple, but different. I like to switch it up from year to year.

As much as I adore my kitchen, sometimes it's fun to eat elsewhere. 

This year, I set a rustic and romantic fall table for two in front of the fire. Who says you always need to eat in the dining room?

Of course, for larger gatherings the kitchen or dining room is a more practical option. 

And you can make more room for the turkey by adding levels to your serving space. 

I made this sweet table riser from a thrift store find.

My Thanksgiving is always dressed to impress. But on a budget and in unique ways. 

 For example, each guest receives a puzzle piece place card as a party favor.

The idea for them was born in my kindergarten classroom. 

We used to make simple  puzzle piece pumpkin frames. I just adapted the craft to decorate my home in a variety of ways. 

Easy, elegant and upcycled!

Of course, pumpkins in general are a seasonal favorite. I pepper them around my house in many forms. One of my favorites in a little unorthodox. 

I mounted a pumpkin napkin in a dollar store splatter screen.

Whimsical and unexpected.

It's also the perfect time of year to display this cookie jar pumpkin vase,

...and this pumpkin made from old ceiling fan blades.

Old ceiling blades are the perfect palette for seasonal artwork. Plus their shape mimics that of wooden signs.

I even displayed a pumpkin on my DIY wooden cake stand.

That was such an easy project, just paint, glue and display.

I also made this simple fall book page leaf banner using a free website.

And no books were destroyed in this project.

Learn my little trick.

Since I am kind of a banner junkie, I made another small garland for Thanksgiving with dollar bin letters.

This one was just the right size to add to small spaces

And place on wreaths.

I even updated it this year, by adding a few dollar store leaves.

So simple to dress up and down.

Changes the whole look.

Speaking of Thanksgiving again, I taught myself how to embroider with yard and felt.

Seriously.

If I can do this, you can do it, too.

Framed art is a wonderful way to add seasonal flare.

And it doesn't have to cost anything to make.

Candles cozy up a cold fall evening.

Here are some of the ways I use candles in my fall decor.

Always, always battery operated, by the way...just safer when working with crafts.

Pillows create a cozy feel, as well.

I stenciled these rustic pillows in no time flat.

I called them rooster pillows (silly, city girl), but we all know they're chickens!

Lastly, my one of my favorite ways to add seasonal flair to any room is with a simple wooden sign.

This was one of the first times I cheated my way to perfect letters with a sticker.

And no, I didn't make the wreath, but you can find it on my shop in the menu above.

Phew!

You made it!

Twenty different ways to add a little bit of fall to your home.

Super easy and super cheap.

Because after all, is there really any reason for it to be any other way?

Happy fall!

  19. I will be pinning some of these Kim. I remember the pumpkin from last year. I did one too but used a real one and I loved it. A faux one is so much more practical!
