Bellewood Cottage is all about relaxing crafts and easy desserts. This fall, I wanted to create a post completely dedicated to some of my favorite easy fall crafts–and I know you will love them too!
There’s something for everyone here, whether you need to decorate your home for Thanksgiving, are looking for a fun project to do with friends (or kids!), or just need a relaxing craft for an afternoon off during this busy season.
With the return of school, social events, and upcoming holidays it’s no surprise that fall can feel crazy-busy. These tutorials have you covered though. Each project is easy-peasy and most take just an afternoon or less.
Just getting started with fall crafting? Here’s a few of my fav crafting supplies I use again and again:
Paint them, fill them with florals, use them for displaying flatware at parties, or even use mini jars for desserts. The possibilities are endless, so if you have a stash of jars, now is the time to bring them out!
A Cricut Cutting Machine
Last year I snagged a Cricut Maker on deep sale over black Friday and it’s been fun learning how to use it. It’s an investment of course, but a lot of fun for crafting throughout the year. Use tutorials like the Cricut tea towels and vinyl maple leaf candles to get started with some fall projects. You can easily make garlands, placecards, decorative signs and lots more.
Faux florals and wreath frames are great fall crafting staples. Watch for the big sales at your local craft store and stock up for easy holiday decorating.
Hot glue and craft paints
Have some hot glue and craft paints handy too. Lots of the projects on this list use these simple crafting tools. I usually opt to restock when my craft store has a good sale.
Keep things budget friendly by strolling through your yard and picking up dried twigs, leaves, and even the last of the summer flowers to dry and display. I also like to have miscellaneous supplies like ribbons, twine, and washi tape on hand too.
