Your calendar may already be filling up with fun autumn activities, but you should still take the time to spend a few weekends in the house to use your DIY skills (especially when the inevitable autumn chill sets in). These creative fall craft ideas are a great place to start, whether you’re looking for an activity on a rainy day to keep your kids busy, or a simple, affordable way to give your home a seasonal feel. Best of all, each one of these DIY projects, which differ in the number of materials and skills required, also serves as autumn decorations that you can exhibit from Labor Day to Thanksgiving Day. Give your home a warm and cozy (and orange!) Atmosphere with these ideas, including pumpkins, leaves, acorns, sweet corn, and other autumn favorites.
You know what to do: take a cup of cider, gather some of your family members (children and adults alike) and enjoy an autumn afternoon. And while you’re at it, start brainstorming craft ideas for Halloween and Thanksgiving, because these holidays will be here before you know it.
