Your calendar may already be filled with fun fall activities, but you should always take the time to spend a few weekends indoors to put your DIY skills to work (especially when the inevitable fall cold hits) . These creative fall craft ideas are a great place to start, whether you’re looking for a rainy day activity to keep your kids busy or a simple, affordable way to add seasonal joy to your home. Best of all: each of these DIY projects, which vary in number of supplies needed and manufacturing capacity, transform into fall decorations that you can leave on Labor Day to Thanksgiving displays. Give your home a warm and cozy (and orange!) Vibe with these ideas, along with pumpkins, foliage, acorns, sweet corn and other fall favorites.
You know what to do: grab a cup of apple cider, gather some of your family members (children and adults) and enjoy an autumn afternoon. And while you’re at it, start thinking about craft ideas for Halloween and Thanksgiving because this vacation will be there before you know it.
