Fall is one of my favorite seasons, along with winter, spring and summer. Each season has its own benefits and things to enjoy. For me, fall is the time for making crafts. There isn’t as much to do in the garden, the busy season of harvesting and canning is over, the evening comes earlier so we spend more time inside, and the cooler weather inspires me to make some changes in my home. Making fall crafts is a great way to spend an afternoon.

The slower months of fall is the perfect time to learn new crafts or teach others crafts you know. It’s so important that we teach the next generation the skills we know or are learning. It doesn’t have to be complicated or frustrating; just take your time and enjoy the process.

Most of these crafts use items that are easily found around your home or property. We also have a craft supplies and resource page with links to products we recommend.
