Now that fall has come and is gearing up to be in full swing, we’ve already started thinking about how excited we are to rotate our home decor scheme. Each year as the seasons change, we love following suit inside our house so that the decorative pieces visitors see when they come over coincide with the weather outside and whatever holiday is the closest. Perhaps even more than we adore the passing of the seasons, however, we love the fact that changing over our home decor periodically gives us an awesome reason to get creative and DIY with the pieces we display! There are few things we feel as enthusiastic about as putting our crafting skills to good use in a way that makes our home look happy and cozy, no matter the time of year. That’s why we’ve been on the lookout for DIY fall decor inspiration! We’re always very busy indeed around this time of year, so the idea of finding fall crafts that are cute and simple is always a dream!
Just in case you’re feeling as enthusiastic as we always do about the idea of making your very own DIY fall decor pieces, it not more, here are 15 of the best and most unique designs, ideas, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in this year’s search.
1. Wrapped fall letter set
Are you the kind of crafter who has always adored working with letters and quotes, especially if you get to make more structured things rather than just painting with words on canvas? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll get along very well indeed with a tutorial like this one from Homemade Interest that outlines the process of doing some yarn wrapping around cardboard letters in order to make cute, colourful mantel stands. We love the way they replaced the A in “Fall” with a cute DIY autumn tree!
2. DIY leaf bowl
Has your favourite part of fall always been the way the leaves fall and cover everything in a thin, crispy later of red and orange shades but you can’t help wishing that you could actually authentically include some of those leaves you love so much in your indoor decor too? In that case, we think this amazing homemade leaf bowl, outlined step by step on Crafts Unleashed, might actually be right up your alley! This project will put your decoupage skills to good, unique use.
3. Pumpkin string art
Did we kind of catch your attention when we started talking about yarn wrapping techniques because you’ve always loved working with yarn and string, but you’re also still scrolling hoping to find something a little more challenging than what you saw there? Then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Crafts by Courtney made this fantastic interwoven string and nail art pumpkin, which they’ve outlined step by step nice and clearly in their tutorial!
4. Leaf themed painted mason jars
Were you quite intrigued by the idea of using real leaves in your DIY fall decor scheme but what you really appreciate the most about them is their shape so you’re not feeling that attached to the idea of keeping the leaves themselves in the project? Then we think you might appreciate the way The Idea Room used them as an outline stencil! Check out their tutorial to learn more about painting carefully around leaves to make these fantastically decorative fall mason jars.
