12 Fall Crafts For Your Home That Can Be Made in About an Hour!

In this post: Craving the cool, crisp air of fall and all that goes with it? Here are 12 fall crafts for your home that you can make in about an hour!

It’s inevitable…before summer is done, we start to crave the next season. Fall brings with it cooler nights, sweaters, pumpkin spice everything and all the pretty fall decor. So, if you’re thinking fall, here are 12 fall crafts for your home, that can be made in an hour or less!  

Can I let you in on a little secret? Promise not to laugh?

Before I start decorating for any season, I pull out all my Rubbermaid totes for that season and open the lids. Then I just sort of take my time to peruse what I have and think about what I may need (er, want?) to fill out my decor.

As I type this, there are three fall totes open in the guest room. The guest bed may or may not be covered in all manner of faux autumn wreaths and sprays. Plus the dining room table might be half covered in new fall stuff.

Anyway, part of the fun of this change of season decorating is in rediscovering fall crafts that I’ve made in previous seasons. To that end, here are 12 fall crafts for your home that you can make in about an hour!

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.
