An autumn leaf bowl me and my boys made. This is one of the activities in the October Mud & Bloom box (which we still have some left of 😊)🍁🌿🍂. . I’ve written a post on how we made it on my blog, see link in profile ⬆️. Have you done any autumn crafts with your children yet this year? #autumncrafts #leafbowl #mudandbloom
Decorative bowls make great centerpieces, and this one is designed to add a natural hint of fall to your coffee table, dining room table, breakfast bar. This decorative leaf bowl is a hands-on project that’s full of fun. It uses artificial maple leaves, so your bowl will look just as great at the end of the season as it did the day you made it. A benefit of this project is that you get the flexibility to make decisions about a lot of the details such as size, thickness, color, and more.
4. Pumpkin Flower Pot
It just wouldn’t be autumn without some pumpkins, and this pumpkin flower pot is probably the easiest fall DIY project there is! In the past, this idea has been completed with real pumpkins, but that takes longer. When you’re using real pumpkins you have to clean them out, and they don’t last as long as you would like. For this variation, you can choose between plastic or styrofoam pumpkins. It saves a lot of time, and you can reuse them year after year.
5. Wood Slice Chalkboard
Nature is even more beautiful during the fall season, so it only seems right to bring some of that nature indoors. This wood slice chalkboard is a wonderful way to incorporate that outdoor beauty with your indoor decor. Larger wood slice chalkboards can be made into decorative signs to welcome your guests or to count down the remaining days until Thanksgiving. Tiny ones can be made into place cards for dinner or labels for dishes of food.
