Leafs are falling from the trees, fallen chestnuts are lying around in the grass and hedgehogs are collecting the last meals before their hibernation sets in. Considering this fall weather, we rather stay inside with a mug of tea or hot choco too. However, it is much fun to take in the autumn inside your household. Therefore, we provide you with some inspiration to make wonderful fall crafts. Take on your boots and jacket because you can simply find some of the materials in your back garden.

Fall wreath made from garden materials

What to you need?

  • Floral foam wreath

  • Sedum

  • Hydrangea

  • Skimmia

  • Viburnum

  • Malus apples

  • Chestnuts

  • Sycamore bark

  • Carnation wire

  • Floristry wire

  • Corsage wire

  • Glue gun

How to make the wreath

Firstly, prepare the materials. Make small blobs of hydrangea and sedum by tying them up together with corsage wire. Cut the viburnum and skimmia shortly and slantwise. Stick doubled floristry wire into the malus apples and chestnuts. Attach the corsage wire onto the bark. The preparations are hereby finished.

  1. Stick the skimmia and viburnum into the wreath, try to spread them equally over the entire wreath.

  2. Hereafter, stick the hydrangea and the sedum into the wreath as well.

  3. The wreath is almost fully covered. Lastly, attach the bark, the apples and the chestnuts to the wreath.

The wreath is finished by now. Display it on the dining table and put a beautiful vase with a candle inside in the middle.

Pinecone wreath

What to do you need?

  • Pinecones

  • Red berries

  • Large perler beads

  • Thin iron clothing hanger

  • Glue gun

How to make the wreath?

  1. Bend the clothing hanger until it has a nice round shape. You will use the hook to hang the wreath.

  2. Glue a perler bead onto the bottom of the pinecone.

  3. Next, lace up the pinecones on the clothing hanger, hence the importance of the perler beads’  size to be large enough so it will fit the hanger.

  4. Make sure the wreath is filled up sufficiently so you see as little of the iron clothing hanger as possible.

  5. Decorate the remaining empty spots with red berries.

The wreath is ready to be hanged onto the door. This is done easily because of the hook of the clothing hanger.

Autumn lights in a Mason Jar

What do you need?

  • Mason Jar

  • Fake autumn leafs

  • Rope

  • Brush

  • Glue

  • Tea lights

How to make these lights?

  1. Coat the autumn leaf with glue.

  2. Stick the leaf on the outside of the Mason Jar. Subsequently, do this with each leaf. It is okay when the leafs are overlapping each other.

  3. The jar is supposed to be covered entirely. Let the leafs dry.

  4. An option is to tie a piece of rope on top of the jar when it is completely dried.

  5. Place a tea light into the jar and light it up!

Produce multiple Mason Jars to make your coffee table into a pretty sight to look at. Another option is to place the jars on a tray and add some pinecones and twigs.
