All Fall, Halloween and Harvest Crafts

by Amy Bowerman

Hi there!  To celebrate the first week of fall I’ve rounded up my favorite fall, Halloween and harvest inspired projects I have created and shared over the years.  You will find tons of project inspiration for fall flower arrangements, pumpkin decorating ideas, and Halloween decor.  Grab a pumpkin spice latte and lets explore all things fall, Halloween and harvest I have for you to DIY.

Faux Fall Flowers

 

These fall flowers were created from Dryer sheets, an old shower curtain and vintage sheet music.  Click the link below for a full tutorial on how to create this totally green fall flower arrangement.

While we are on the subject of Dollar Store Halloween decor, how about this monstrous bouquet made from cello bags and festive Halloween ribbon?  Don’t forget the googly eyes!

Crafting with Fall Leaves

 

The changing colors of fall leaves is one of my favorite things about fall…aside from pumpkin spice lattes :)  You can create fall decor with real leaves or make your own with Sizzix, Alcohol ink and a Shower Curtain.

Pumpkin Crafts

 

I love a pumpkin craft, especially one that doesn’t rot away after all my hard work.  Foam pumpkins to the rescue!  Here is a fun trio of craft pumpkins I’ve created featuring much-loved characters from the wildly imaginative world of Tim Burton.

Halloween Scenes

 

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I’m always up for some Halloween inspired crafting…Christmas…not so much but that’s a whole nother’ story :)  One of my favorite Halloween crafts to create is Witches Brew…you know from Macbeth’s 3 witches.

Create your own witches brew ingredients easily with polymer clay.  I’ll show you the steps to create each one from “Eye of Newt” to “Tongue of Dog”

You can’t make a proper witches brew without a bubbling cauldron to put it in.  Find out how to create this artful cauldron with Three Witches inspired Fragment Charms.

If you plan on making witches brew and casting spells you will need a proper spellbook.  Find out how to create one from a phonebook.  Clearly the phone companies are unaware that the internet exists.

Girl you give me more credit than I deserve :). I WISH I could accomplish that much craftiness in a months time. If I had that much gumption Martha Stewart herself may come calling…ha! Sadly those projects were took the last 2 fall seasons to create….speaking of which, I’m behind for this season with only one project! Time to get my rear in gear :)
