Pumpkins, scarecrows, and candles are a much-loved theme when it comes to DIY Fall decor. And there is nothing wrong with sticking with traditions, as long as you put your own personal spin on it.
DIY Wine Cork Pumpkin
Combine your love of wine with your love of fall with this cute little pumpkin crafted using old wine corks.
Edible DIY Apple Display
Sometimes, it’s the smallest things that can create the loveliest of displays. A few ripe apples and some nuts are scattered with some mums and other fall flowers. Throw a personal element in there, like this vintage sheet music, and you have an edible fall display that tastes as good as it looks.
Ladle DIY Tea Light Candle Holder
I love this project because it takes a thrift shop find, such as an antique ladle, and turns it into a wonderfully rustic and unique tea light candle holder.
This scarecrow is anything but frightening, and so easy to make. All you need is an old burlap bag, some black buttons and thread, and little bit of fabric paint (although sharpie markers will do in a pinch). Top it off with some straw hair and an old straw hat and you’ve got a delightfully welcoming scarecrow.
Small Terracotta Pot Scarecrow
A few small terracotta pots, some twine & burlap, and some craft straw – all of which can be picked up at the dollar store – can be quickly transformed into this adorable little scarecrow.
Milk Crate Pumpkins Outdoor DIY Fall Decor
This rustic outdoor display uses a mix of real and artificial pumpkins in a variety of colors, some rustic wood crates, an old barrel and a bale of hay. The end result is wonderfully rustic!
Fall Luminary Tree
Hang some battery-operated votive candles (do not use real candles for this DIY Fall decor project, as it would be a fire hazard) from tree branches with some wide ribbon for a dramatic display. Perfect for the hall table!
Mr. and Mrs. Pumpkin
You can create a wonderfully welcoming fall display using some old clothes, a couple of salvaged rocking chairs and some quaintly carved pumpkins.
DIY Fall Wreath
Create your own wonderful fall wreath using fresh or artificial flowers and grasses in warm earth tone colors.
White Pumpkin with Paper Flowers
You can use a craft pumpkin or a real pumpkin for this project, because the real hero are the paper flowers.
