Fall Crafts and Easy DIY Decor

 Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

Fall is my favorite season! I love the rich warm vibrant colors of fall, truth be told you'll find something fall like in my home year round, because the colors burgundy and gold are my true loves!

The next couple of posts I plan to share a few of my Fall 2023 DIY projects I've created for our home, without breaking the bank!

I would label my decorating style as eclectic - meaning I mix and match different types of decorating styles in the hope of creating one cohesive style. 😊

Fabric Crafts

Quilted Wall Hangings

Batik Heart Fall Quilt with Embroidery

Fall Maple Leaf Quilt Wall Quilt with Embroider

These two wall hangings I made a few ago years ago but I still love them and happily hang them every year.

Mug Rugs

Mug rugs are larger than a coaster but smaller than a placemat. I'm a big fan of using them and have several around my home.

I googled "pumpkin printable" and found one from to use as a template for my pumpkin mug rugs. I grabbed some scraps and cut out the template. I used the QAYG/ string method to create the mug rugs

They turned out so adorable! I plan to make more next year to sell in my shop.

Pumpkin Mini Quilt

Crazy Patch Pumpkin Mini Quilt

I made this sweet crazy patch pumpkin embroidered 10 x 14 inch mini quilt to hang on our pantry door.

Acorn Inspired Fall Decor

Wood Sign - Gather

I purchased these acorn wood cut out ornaments from Dollar Tree to create a wood sign for our kitchen. 
Gather - Acorn Fall Wood Sign

I decorated 6 of the wood acorn ornaments with paint, scrapbook paper, lace, and small wood letters to spell the word GATHER. To cover the holes in the ornaments I added sunflowers from a floral pick I cut apart.

I use 5 gallon paint stir sticks to create backgrounds for the smaller wood signs I make. They are inexpensive and easily cut with a miter saw box.

Nuts for Fall

I can't get enough of Fall and this adorable wood sign says it all!

Fall Door Signs and Wreath

Round wooden signs are my go to choice for door hangers. I usually choose simple designs that are easy to make and look great like the one below for our front door.

The sign below sits outside our front door next to the area where packages are dropped off.
Hello Fall Paint Stick Wood Sign

I bought a beautiful single stemmed sunflower from Hobby Lobby to make a simple rope covered wreath as shown below.

Until next time craft the life you love ❣
