If you are looking for Autumn crafts for adults to make, then you have come to the right place. I love, love, LOVE Autumn – it’s my favourite time of year. The changing colours of the leaves from green to rusty reds and golds, plus of course pumpkins, and other autumnal things, make me feel so inspired!
This selection of adult autumn crafts ranges in level, from ridiculously simple autumn crafts, through to some that require a bit more skill. But whatever level of crafting you are at, take a look at them because you never know what you can do until you try!

I love making wreaths for autumn, and they can be as simple or as intricate in design as you like!
- My Simple Autumn Wreath takes less than 10 minutes to make, and you don’t even need a glue gun!
- You don’t need a glue gun for my Autumn Leaf Wreath either. It’s not quite as simple in design as the previous wreath, but is still on the easy autumn crafts spectrum!
- To make my Twine & Leaf Autumn Wreath, you are going to need a fair bit of patience as your wrap twine around the wreath ring. And you will need a glue gun – but with some decorative autumnal leaves, berries, and pine cones, you will have a gorgeous fall wreath crafted in no time.
- Learn how to make a Paper Fall Flower Wreath that looks so pretty when finished.
The next autumnal wreath I plan on making is made using fall coloured Christmas ornaments. I’m sure you’ve seen them online for the Holidays, but I want to make one for Autumn! I’ve always wanted to make an ornament wreath, and a florist friend of mine is going to teach me so that I can teach you!
Autumn Pumpkin Crafts
There is a fine line between Autumn and Halloween crafts – after all, they share some of the same decorative things – like pumpkins. (Which we all know is one of my favourite things!) But I wanted to keep Halloween stuff firmly out of this roundup of Autumn crafts for adults.
That all said, I do have some pretty pumpkin crafts that are perfect to make and display during the fall season, that I simply have to share.
- Turn new wood blocks into Rustic Wooden Pumpkins with a real twig stalk, and ribbon tendrils. Such a cute craft for fall!
- Using orange buttons, and green buttons, you can create a Pumpkin Picture in a Shadow Box, it’s so easy to do, and looks great on the mantle.
- I loved making this Felt Ruffle Pumpkin and I know you will too! My felt pumpkin comes out every year as soon as September hits!
- Using ceramic paints, I turned a plain old sugar pot into a lovely Hand Painted Ceramic Pumpkin.
- These Homemade Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Bars are wonderful for exfoliating skin, and they smell lovely too!
- You are going to have to know how to crochet if you want to make these adorable Amigurumi Crochet Pumpkins. But don’t despair if you don’t know how to crochet… I actually taught myself through YouTube videos, and it was so much easier than I thought it would be. So if I can do it, you can do it!
Crafts Using Autumn Leaves
I’m trying to keep everything organised on this page, so whilst two of these crafts below fits, the other one – not so much! As I add more crafts to this page, I’ll adjust each section accordingly!
Make sure you save this post to your Pinterest boards – there are buttons at the top and bottom of this post that you can use (including ones for sharing on other social media platforms!).
- I made these Autumn Leaf Coasters way back in 2012, and I still have them, and still use them. They truly have stood the test of time over the years!
- This Fall Leaf Banner is a quick & easy autumn craft to make and display in your home to welcome in the season.
- These Seed/Plant Sticks came about because I didn’t have the craft supplies for another idea I had at the time. While you might not think of Autumn as a time to be planting fruits and vegetables, there are lots you can plant at this time of year. Make your own plant markers to keep track of your seedlings!
