I’m having a craft day with my sister-in-law today, so I’ve been thinking about some crafty fall DIY projects. Here are a few that I really like.
1. Solar Lanterns
These lanterns are great. How cool would it be to hang these from trees around a campsite? I love the look of the copper pots and that they are solar powered.
2. Fall Pinecone Garland
What a great, inexpensive project! I’m definitely doing this! I love bringing the outdoors in. I’m skipping the glitter, because I can’t stand the mess. (Hint: buy your twine at the hardware store, it’s usually cheaper than craft stores).
3. Sweater Redos
There’s something I love about the elbow patches on this sweater. And I love the zipper and leather details on this sweater. I’m on the lookout for the perfect thrift store sweaters for these two projects.
4. Cross-stitched iPhone Cover
I picked up a little cross-stitch cell phone case at Walmart for under $6. I’m planning on creating a plaid iPhone cover. I’ll post photos when it’s done. I haven’t cross-stitched since I was a little kid, so we’ll see how it turns out. This chevron pattern is really neat as well.
5, Painted S’mores/Hot Dog Roasting Sticks
How cute are these? I’d totally make them if I was camping with kids!
Update: Here’s the pinecone garland I made:
I love how it turned out!
