Fall DIY Ideas For All Ages

When the colder air starts moving in, you know the changing leaves are soon to come. Embrace the change of seasons by making your own fall decor accents. You don’t need to be an experienced professional. These crafts are perfect for little hands or adults. Here are four simple, festive, and fun DIY craft ideas that you can try out this fall.

Candy Corn Candle Holders:

Perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving, you can add a festive look to your home by adding a bit of candy corn to your candle holders. Simply, pour a few around the base of your candle. Just make sure not to fill it too high and pay attention to how low your candle gets to prevent the candy from burning, or opt for flameless candles if you have little ones who want to help fill up the candle holder.

Mummify Your House:

Kids will love this one. Hand them a roll of toilet paper or tape and (together) wrap it around household objects to instantly “mummify” them. This works well for bottles, candle jars, or even pumpkins! For an added extra touch, glue on some googly eyes.

Spooky Glowing Eyes:

This is one of the easiest and inexpensive DIY ideas I’ve come across. Perfect for any beginner. Save your empty paper towel or toilet paper rolls. Take out some scissors and cut holes in the rolls for eyes. Put a glow stick inside each roll and place them in your bushes for creepy eyes that can watch anyone walking by. This also makes a fun party craft. Tip: Place tape over the sides to prevent the glowsticks from falling out.

Leaf Mason Jar Luminary:

For this project, either take a leaf or trace and cut out a leaf on loose leaf paper. Tape your leaf onto a mason jar and paint over your jar with acrylic paint. When you finish painting, peel your traced leaf off of the jar and touch up any rough parts with paint. You can apply multiple leafs before painting to obtain a brighter luminary. Place a tealeaf or battery operated candle in the jar when finished. This could also make for a great fall vase.
