Ideas for Fall Crafts

  • Use leftover wood: pumpkins do not always have to be round.
  • Pallet wood can also look amazing when distressed
  • Repurpose materials: look at those wine bottles and tin cans in a new light
  • Classic carved pumpkins are awesome but don’t be scared of painting. We love the paint-pour pumpkin in this post.
  • Think more than just pumpkins. Fall foliage and autumn colors can be a great inspiration
  • Have fun and think outside the box or pumpkin (we should say)!
