• 10 Autumn Crafts For A Rainy Day

    I’ve always loved doing craft projects ever since I was a child. There’s something special about giving a gift to someone that you’ve made yourself as you know it’s so bespoke, and it shows how much effort you have put in.

    Even if you’re not crafting with the intent of gift-giving, these autumn crafts will make a great addition to your mantelpiece or to show off at a Halloween party!

    So grab something pumpkin-spiced and let’s get going.

    Fabric & Bandana Pumpkin

    I love these little pumpkins, they are so original and you can bring them out year after year. You can make a whole collection of these out of different fabrics or bandanas which will look so effective as a group on Halloween night!

    You can find out how to make these over at Sadie Seasongoods.

    Book Page Pumpkin

    As a book lover I want to make this right now! After reading through the method, you can easily make this in an afternoon. It would be a great gift for a literary fan, or just to spruce up your own home this autumn!

    Felt Leaf Tag

    Such a cute addition to a gift for someone with a birthday in autumn. If you’re going with eco friendly wrap this year, this tutorial would be an easy way to spruce up any present that is looking on the plain side.

    Find this tutorial at The Artful Parent.

    Photo Frame Wreath

    I like how this is a little different to the usual circular wreath. As the base of this is a photo frame, it’s very easy to make and can be done well on a budget.

    You can find out how to make this at Aubree Originals.

    Autumn “Luminary”

    This is such a good idea and it’s a lot easier than it looks. This craft looked far too advanced for a mediocre crafter like me, but I think I’d definitely give this a go! All you need is a can, a nail & hammer to punch in the design. Add a candle in to the middle and you’re good to go!

    Book Page Leaves

    Can we just appreciate how beautiful these look? All you need to do is cut out a shape of your choice and add some glitter to the edges (maybe with some modge podge) and it looks beautiful! We have a little tree on our fireplace and I can just picture these leaves hanging off of it.

    Leaf Stamped Napkins

    This is a really simple tutorial using leaves, so you don’t even need to be a particularly skilled painter for them to look great! If you’re hosting a dinner party over the autumn months, these are sure to please your guests.

    Find out how to do this at All Things G&D.

    Button Tree

    You can take this one in your own direction if you’re feeling adventurous – this looks amazing on a big canvas as it’s so quirky and eye catching. However if you’re not so sure, you can of course attempt a smaller version with less branches. There are many tutorials out there of button crafts but I loved this one so I had to feature it.

    Find this at Crafts By Amanda.

    Leaf Coasters

    This is a great craft project that you can get children to help you with. Once you have gathered your leaves and pressed them, add some modge podge and you’re pretty much done! They would make a great gift and you can easily add some glitter or embellishments.

    Find the directions for this at Confessions Of A Home Schooler.

    Autumn Cushion

    I love how this pillow has so much going on. Whilst it’s autumnal, you could have this on your sofa all year round without it looking really out of season.

    You can find this at Setting For Four.

    I hope you enjoyed this day 19 #Blogtober post. Let me know if you attempt any of these craft projects!
