Buying fall decorations can be costly for no reason. Wreaths can cost upwards of $50, and every time I see one at the store, I think, “It’s just flowers and leaves glued to a wooden circle,” and then I get frustrated and go straight for Halloween candy. I like to put up seasonal decorations starting in September to ease my way into winter (and Christmas decorations!), so here are my top picks at fall home decor crafts you can do yourself that require few supplies (and most of the supplies can be used for more than one craft).
Garlands are something I’ve only started getting into the last few years, but with a little sparkle, felt does a great job of being light, easy to store, and totally cute. This tutorial from Pretty Providence is simple enough to do with a few minutes of spare time, and not too messy.
If scooping out pumpkin seeds isn’t your idea of crafting, try using a little adhesive and glitter to make a monogramed pumpkin. unOriginal Mom uses an electronic template for a crisp design, but good ol’ fashioned Mod Podge can also do the trick.
If you’re dying to break out the cinnamon candles, these mason jars as made by Spark and Chemistry are the perfect way to give a gentle glow from the flame. Plus, nothing says fall more than a mason jar.
The creepiness of this wreath makes it perfect for Halloween, and the unique rectangle shape will make your front door stand out. Pick your favorite scary story and add a spider per the advice of That’s My Letter for a decoration you love.
Put those wine corks to use with a personal decoration that reminds you of the warmth in a bottle of cabernet sauvignon. Simply XSBaggage has a great tutorial for putting this craft together quickly, and wine is recommended.
