By Thea Voutiritsas
As summer comes to a close, many of us will be spending more time indoors. But autumn nights in don’t have to be boring. Get creative with your fall-inspired coloring pages and decorate your home for fall with these eight easy craft ideas.
1. Festive Fall Mason Jars
These adorable mason jars are a perfect way to add a touch of fall to your home. Work your coloring pages into this craft by swapping out the metal top with some cardstock adorned in a coloring page, or by skipping the paint and wrapping the jar in your favorite fall coloring page (much like we do in our tissue jar DIY).
2. Adorable Acorn Art
Add fall sparkle to your home with this cute and quirky acorn board. Use one of our fall-friendly coloring pages as your backdrop in this craft for some extra autumn color and personality.
3. Fall Leaf Fairy Lights
These delicate fairy lights are an easy way to bring some autumnal warmth into your home. With a simple string of lights and a little hot glue, you can surround yourself with glowing leaves. Use faux leaves like the ones in this tutorial, or cut out your own leaves from our fall coloring pages.
4. Creative Candle Votive
Design your own candle votive using fall-inspired shapes and colors. You can cut your shape out of paper or a coloring page and use Mod Podge to adhere it to the inside of the jar, or paint it on the outside of the votive like in this tutorial.
5. Origami Pumpkins
Decorate your home with these cute little origami pumpkins. They can be used to decorate any surface, or strung across the house on some twine. Try creating these with solid colored paper, or with our “Leaves, Leaves & More Leaves” coloring page.
6. Paper Roll Pumpkins
Give your home a hip and rustic feel with these unique paper roll pumpkins. Try mixing up your patterns with newspaper, glitter, solid colors, and a patterned coloring page of your choice.
7. Paper Leaf Lanterns
Imagine illuminating your backyard with these gorgeous glowing lanterns. Use a solid color for your lantern like in this tutorial, or go for a more intricate boho look with our “Expansive Leaves” mandala coloring page. Blow up the design to cover a large part of your lantern, or print out lots of small ones for a more sporadic look.
8. Fall Flag Banner
Create a fun fall banner in just a few simple steps. Use solid colors, or use some of our patterned pages. Add letters to each little flag for your own fall greeting as well!
Let these fall crafts inspire you to celebrate fall however your heart desires. Go all out with string lights and streamers, or keep it simple with a few table decorations. Whether your fall décor taste is classic or quirky, these crafts are sure to keep you entertained throughout the season.
