DIY Fall Crafts to Elevate Your Home Decor

October 25, 2023

Fall is the perfect time to add some cozy and festive touches to your home decor. What better way to do that than with delightful do-it-yourself crafts that capture the essence of the season? 

Read on as we guide you through step-by-step instructions for creating stunning fall-inspired decorations that will elevate the autumn ambiance of your living space.

Rustic Autumn Wreath

A wreath is a classic way to adorn your front door or any wall with the warmth of fall. To create your own rustic autumn wreath, gather a grapevine wreath base, faux fall foliage (such as maple leaves, acorns, and pinecones), floral wire, a hot glue gun with glue sticks, and burlap ribbon. 

Next, follow the instructions below:

  • Prepare the Base: Begin by attaching the faux fall foliage to the grapevine wreath base. Use floral wire to secure the larger pieces and hot glue for the smaller ones.
  • Create a Focal Point: Select a larger decoration, such as a cluster of leaves or a decorative pumpkin, to serve as the focal point. 
  • Add Texture: Incorporate pinecones, acorns, and other textured elements to give your wreath a more organic feel.
  • Final Flourish: Attach a burlap ribbon bow at the bottom or top of the wreath for a charming finishing touch. 
Festive Fall Garland

Garlands are an excellent way to bring the spirit of fall indoors. They can be draped along mantels, staircases, or entryways, instantly transforming the atmosphere. To make a garland, you’ll need twine (or string), faux fall leaves and berries, and wooden clothespins. You can also add mini pumpkins or pinecones if you so desire.

Here's how to make a festive fall garland:

  • Prepare the Leaves: If your faux leaves are wired, gently shape them to create a natural appearance. If they're not wired, you can attach a small piece of floral wire to the stem.
  • Stringing the Garland: Measure the length you want for your garland and cut the twine or string accordingly. Leave some extra length on each end for hanging. 
  • Attach the Leaves: Use wooden clothespins to attach the faux leaves and berries to the twine.
  • Add Embellishments: For an extra festive touch, intersperse mini pumpkins or pinecones along the garland. 
  • Hang and Enjoy: Once you've attached all your elements, hang the garland in your chosen location. 
Pumpkin Spice Candle Holders

What's fall without the cozy glow of candles? Elevate your candle game with pumpkin spice candle holders that emit the warm scents of the season. All you’ll need to make them are mini pumpkins (faux or real), tea light candles, pumpkin spice essential oil, and a small drill or knife.

Next, follow these steps:

  • Prepare the Pumpkins: If you're using real mini pumpkins, carefully cut off the tops and scoop out the insides to create space for the candle. If you're using faux pumpkins, you might need to hollow out a small area for the candle.
  • Add the Scent: Place a few drops of pumpkin spice essential oil into the pumpkin. This will infuse the air with a delightful aroma when the candle is lit.
  • Insert the Candle: Insert a tea light candle or battery-operated candle into the hollowed-out area of the pumpkin. 
  • Light and Enjoy: Light the candle and bask in the cozy ambiance and fragrant scent of your pumpkin spice candle holder.
