This craft is super easy and adds a beautiful touch of fall to any room. Cut out leaves from colored paper or felt, punch holes at the top of each leaf, and string them together with twine or ribbon.
The great thing about this craft is that you can go high-end with it, or it’s a fun one to do with kids. If you want a more high-end decor look, you can go for something simple like the idea pictured below. If this is something you want to do with kids, simply glue feathers onto a pinecone to create the tail, then add googly eyes, a beak, and feet cut out of construction paper.
Hollow out mini pumpkins and fill them with seasonal flowers or candles. Add a touch of ribbon or burlap for a rustic touch.
Turkey Place Cards
Create personalized place cards for each guest by cutting out turkeys from colored paper or cardstock and then adding their name in a fun font. Take this craft up a notch, and instead of paper, head outdoors and collect some bright-colored leaves to use as the turkey “feathers.”
Use a grapevine wreath as the base, then add fall foliage, mini pumpkins, and other seasonal decor to create a beautiful cornucopia-inspired wreath.
Mason Jar Candle Holders
Paint mason jars in fall colors, then add candles and twine or ribbon for a cozy touch.
Cut out triangles from burlap or colored paper, then add letters to spell out “Harvest” or “Give Thanks.” String them together with twine or ribbon for a festive banner.
Fall Leaf Mason Jars
Mod Podge fall leaves onto mason jars for a beautiful and easy centerpiece. Add tea lights or flowers for extra charm.
