Summer is nearly at its close. Though days of beach trips, ice-cold lemonade, and pool parties have past, the almost-Autumn murmurings of football games, leaf piles, and pumpkin-flavored everything fill us with excitement! Today, we’re sharing with you some of the newly trending Fall crafts from our Plaid Pinterest boards. Join us in creating some denim-wearing, Halloween-scaring, country-fair-ing Fall do-it-yourself crafts!
You can’t picture “Fall” without imagining a perfectly round, festive pumpkin. But who says pumpkins have to be solid orange? This DIY project transforms your typical-fall-accessory into a fun and modern home décor accent piece. Use it as a center piece surrounded by leaves for your next fall party, or leave it on your doorstep as friendly-fall welcome before you break out the Jack-o-Lantern in October.
Trending this week is another excellent Halloween craft to do with kids—custom “Halloween friends” made with flower pots and Apple Barrel Paint. Why wait until Halloween to create your decorations? Make an event of it! Every Saturday afternoon in September and October, spend an hour with your kids making a new “Halloween Friend” so that you have a whole collection of ghouls and goblins by the time of the big night!
We all know that when fall comes, we can finally break out that favorite pair of jeans that was always just too hot to don in the summer heat. It’s no surprise that faux-denim accents in home décor are trending with the coming season. This DIY denim pillow is upgraded even further with beautiful stenciling. Denim: It’s not just for jeans, jackets, and overalls-wearing scarecrows anymore.
Last but not least is our favorite trending craft that will last you the whole fall season: DIY Fall Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holders. And all it requires is Mod Podge, a jar, and a collection of real or fake color leave! Make two for your home’s dining table, or make twenty to light the way for guests at a fall party.
