Fall crafts

As summer comes to a close, and the temperatures lower . . . I start to feel the happy feelings. I think my fellow autumn lovers know what I mean.

The weather gets crisp, and the pumpkin recipes and lattes start a flowin’. I want to get creative with oranges and mustards and browns. And I might even use some glitter – you just never know.

Because I’m so obsessed with autumn crafting and the amazingness that results from it, I’m excited to share some fall crafts for adults with you today. Because sure, the kids love crafts – but we big people do as well!

Crafting for Fall

Before I share these DIY fall crafts with you, I wanted to address a few topics. I get asked about the following quite a bit, so here are a few tips you might be interested in. If not, go ahead and scroll down and grab the list.

Supplies You Can Use

Autumn is a great time to use things like paint in muted colors, burlap, kraft paper, and those sorts of things. I also love glitter in fall colors, and more natural materials like clay and cork.

Besides using craft supplies, don’t forget to dig around outside for things like pinecones and acorns. But don’t forget to dry them in the oven to melt off sap and also kill the beasties. Learn more about baking out the beasties here. The same process works for pinecones.

Preserving Leaves for Fall Crafts

You can definitely use Mod Podge to preserve leaves for projects! Grab yourself a piece of wax paper, Mod Podge (Gloss is fine), and a foam brush.

Ideally you will do this with fresh leaves. Lay the leaves out on the wax paper, and paint a layer of medium over the top. Let dry and flip. Do this one more time, so that there are two coats on each side. Let dry completely before using or displaying.
