Looking for creative fall craft projects? Oh, good. I have seven projects you can make in under an hour with step-by-step instructions.


This was supposed to be the morning I wowed you with my amazingness.


I had the cutest fall craft to show you. I’m taking these tiny pinecones and transforming a dollar store pumpkin with this pattern and sticks from the yard.

Yesterday the supplies were on the counter.

Everything was ready.

And then?

I thought I’d watch a little football and rest my eyes for JUST a minute.

Just a minute, y’all.

Three and a half hours later? I sat up in disbelief. I fell asleep. And not just a little sleep.

A long winter’s nap.

So in full disclosure. My supplies are still sitting on the counter. I am well rested and today I have some OTHER fun crafts to show you.

Here are seven of my creative fall craft projects you can make instead of napping.

5. fall craft projects: Wordfind pumpkin

Perfect fall decorating idea.

6. Fall door idea

This is really more of a home decor project than one of the fall craft projects. But it’s so easy I wanted to include it. On your front door, instead of a wreath?

Why not use a runner instead?

Here are 12 fall door decorating. And one more idea free of charge. See that pumpkin right there on the right? I used a coaster to add a monogram.

7. fall craft projects: DIY pumkin pillow

This is my number one pinned DIY.

It’s so easy to make and takes five minutes to create this no-sew pillow.

    Sounds like a good Sunday.....football, nap 👍. My Mom and I sat around and watched travel shows since we can’t really go anywhere yet ☺️ The guys played golf!! These are fun Fall crafts and I can’t wait to see this new project!

    Great, great Fall projects. Fall is absolutely my favorite season but somehow not for decorating. I love Fall baking! Problem is by the time I am done eating my baking, I have the shape of a pumpkin! Sigh. I should learn crafts!

    Great inspiration! You fell asleep cuz you don't eat sugar, haha. Low blood sugar means blackouts! (jk, kinda?) Anyway, your mind, body and spirit needed rest. I know about deadlines, but life is too short to miss out on snoozes whenever possible. Hope you had a good dream or three. Hugs.

    Nothing as delicious and sugar free as Sunday afternoon naps. With a background of football or golf lulling me to sleep. Never feel guilty about napping!!

    I think it is the weather for naps. I simply had to stop for one today too. Yesterday a wasp stung me and threw off life for sure. So after a not restful night I had to NOT work on decor today but recover. So I say YAY to your nap! (And yay to that pumpkin pillow too!)

    Now this made me laugh, its just one of those things when you think I'll just sit here a minute and pow, the day is over by the time you wake up, haha, its happened to us all and its OK, go with it but you did make me smile and I love the rest of your post too. xxx

    Karianne, you always have such great crafting ideas. The best thing for me, is that they are always doable, even for crafting novices. Oh, and by the way, naps sometimes sneak up on me like that too;)

    You are so clever. I feel like I, as uncrafty as I am, could do many of them. I think I could really nail that coaster on the pumpkin. And it looks so fancy! I'm glad you got a Sunday nap. Those are the very best!
