Autumn Fall Wreath Supplies

Autumn Wreaths

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. You will need a glue gun and along 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.

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.

  • Take an old book and learn how to make a Paperback Book Pumpkin. Using the same method you could make apples, which are another favorite fall fruit.
  • Frame a Paper Quill Pumpkin to make a beautiful statement piece to add to your fall seasonal home decor.
  • 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!

Pumpkin Amigurumi Crochet Patterns

If you are wondering what on earth Amigurumi is, Wiki says: 

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and nuigurumi, meaning “stuffed doll”. Amigurumi vary in size and there are no restrictions about size or look. 

(I’ve also got a cute Candy Corn Amigurumi, but that’s more for Halloween!)

The first pattern is the ones I used for my crochet pumpkins, but I've found some other cute pumpkins you could try - including a knitting pattern for all you knitters out there!

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!).

Crafts Using Autumn Leaves

I’m trying to keep everything organised on this page, so whilst two of these crafts below fit, the other one – not so much! As I add more crafts to this page, I’ll adjust each section accordingly!

  1. 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!
  2. This Fall Leaf Banner is a quick & easy autumn craft to make and display in your home to welcome in the season.
  3. 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!
