TOP 10 Fall Crafts You Have to Do

I start getting excited for fall at the beginning of summer. The colors, the smells, the tastes and sounds, they all make my heart happy. So I decided that I am going to celebrate the fall season to its fullest this year and I'm going to start with crafts that my daughter and I can make. As I complete each item I will update this post with my results.

I also challenge YOU to make them and show off your final products here too.

In no particular order, let's get to it!

1. Crochet Wreath

planetmfiles.com

This thing is adorable! It's the warm fuzzy feeling of autumn is one tiny wreath. The pattern by Gayle at www.PlanetMFiles.com says it will be about six inches wide. I'd like this for my front door so I will be trying to make a MUCH bigger one.

2. Easy Corn Craft

I don't think I've ever done a corn craft in my life, I don't think I knew corn crafts even existed. That being said, I don't know that I am going to use real corn to do this. The only place I can even think to get a bunch of loose dried corn is maybe the bird food department... If you know, please clue me in. Maybe I'll just use yellow split peas like Tammy from Housing a Forest.

3. Chestnut Leaf Placemat

ABC Knitting Patterns

I love the look of these leaves but I think I'll probably use warmer, more fall-like colors to really bring it home. I thought this would be an extra challenge for me since I found on the abc-knitting site and I have just started learning to knit, but I got lucky. It's a crochet pattern! Be sure to check out all of the patterns available on abc-knitting-patterns.com!

4. Crochet Acorns

Squirrel Picnic

These are so cute I want a million of them. I'm picturing a centerpiece vase filled to the brim with little (bug-free) crochet acorns, pine cones and cinnamon sticks. Jennifer Olivarez of SquirrelPicnic.com is the creator of these nuts and I can't wait to make my own.

I am DEVOTED to that

Jail Bird's style!

Martha Stewart

I chose this one with my daughter in mind. It is almost time for school to start and I think it would be a great thing for her to have in her bookbag. Plus, it looks really easy to do. PS: If I could own everything in the Martha Stewart lines it wouldn't be enough. I am devoted to that jail bird's style!

6. Crochet Pine Cones

Yarn Freak

I specifically chose this one because it is going to be smashing with my crochet acorns from above. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to go 'au naturale' with the colors or spice it up a bit. I'm also stoked that I'll have a reason to learn a new stitch, the CROCODILE stitch; chomp chomp!

7. Leaf Garland

This garland is going to look gorgeous around my house and across my hearth. My favorite part is that it uses fusible interfacing so I don't have to sew too much. This is good for me since I tend to stab myself far too often when I sew.

8. Yarn Pumpkins

One Little Project

This is another one I chose with my daughter in mind. It looks pretty easy, a little messy, and the pumpkins are so charming. Can you see a centerpiece with these little guys? They would definitely help keep an open feel to the table and not completely block conversation. Leave off the stem and leaves, switch up the colors, and you have a centerpiece for all seasons.

9. Owl Treat Bags

Sweet and Simple Living

Dude . . . that face . .

How could you not want to make this? You could make him happy or cranky, the choice is yours! And it's a great way to use up some scrapbooking paper. Woot!

10. It's a Surprise!!

I will be creating something of my very own and I will share the tutorial or pattern with you for free. I can't wait to get started!
