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.
