Fall is one of my favorite times if year and one of my favorite seasons to decorate for. Today is the last day of November, so it is better late than never to put up a post reminiscing about my favorite fall crafts. I’ve packed away all of my fall decor and am bringing the Christmas stuff up today. So before I get all holly jolly on you, I just wanted to post a few pics of some of my favorite fall diy projects I’ve done.
A few of the items are inspired by things I found on Pinterest (but of course). I’ll post a few details here on how I made them, and link to the original inspiration if I have them.
First up are my Ribbon Pumpkins, inspired by this on Pinterest. These are super simple to make and are great for some simple elegant decor for fall and Halloween. I love the black and white ribbon! What you need:
- Come craft pumpkins (these were on sale at Michael’s)
- Ribbons of your choice
- “Fur” yarn (if you want that wispy stuff at the top)
- Scissors and a glue gun
Cut your ribbon to size (I did from the center bottom of the pumpkin to the stem). Hot glue your ribbon strips to the pumpkin at the bottom and then the top. It is up to you to decide the pattern and frequency you want to line them up in. Once you have the ribbons on to your liking, take the “fur” yarn to glue to the top. I looped some around the top and then added a few extra pieces. Ta-dah! You have ribbon pumpkins.
This is my take on the ever so popular Burlap Boo Wreath that I found on Pinterest last year. You can find the original tutorial right here at Craftaholics Anonymous. Mine is slightly different as I painted and glittered my letters instead of covering with scrapbook paper. One thing to note about black burlap, I found that it fades super easily super quickly in the sun. If you know a way to combat that, I would love to know.
Last but not least, is my Fall Yarn Wreath. This one wasn’t inspired by anything in particular, other than the thousands of yarn wreath pictures I’ve been seeing. I found this textured yarn at the craft store with a mix of these gorgeous fall colors and decided to make a go of it. I’ll do a follow up post with a tutorial on how to make the wreath and another for the flowers at a later time.
So those are a few of the fall DIY crafts that I’m proud of. Now they’re packed up and put away, and it is time for Christmas madness! I’ll be posting a few pics of some of the new things I’m working on this year, as well as a few past projects.
