I love to have art around in the fall. Back when I was growing up, we’d always be making some sort of artistic project, either in class or at home. This fall I was yearning to have some of that art, so I went looking for easy projects to do. I’m definitely not a great artist, so things have to be easy for me to create them. I’ve found four that are simple, but also cute!
This autumn leaf is gorgeous, and would be difficult to make, right? …wrong! All you need is shaving cream, acrylic paint, a cardboard cut to a leaf shape and an aluminum tray. I was so discouraged when I saw the picture because I thought it would be too hard and you would need a lot of skill that I didn’t have. Then I clicked this link and found out how simple it was!
Looking at this dotted tree picture I was pretty sure I could recreate it. I went to find the instructions, and saw that all they were in Italian!! The site has great detailed pictures though, so I’m sure you can figure out how to do it. (Plus they had picture of children doing this craft. That’s a good sign, right?) All you need for this project is paper, q-tips and some paint! Simple, but it looks neat when it’s done.
This autumn wreath might be my favorite. It’s just so gorgeous, and I could imagine it hanging on my front door! I love the girly bow and glittery leaves, but I also love that it’s not too girly. It strikes a nice balance between femininity, delicacy and simplicity. I read the instructions and saw you only need cardstock, glitter, adhesive, a wreath form, ribbon, scissors and a wire for hanging. Seven supplies for such a polished looking project? I’m sold!

These little pumpkins are ADORABLE. You could make a bunch of them and put them anywhere. On a table-scape, on the counter, or just scattered around the house. I’m obsessed with pumpkins this year, so this one really appeals to me. And depending on the fabric you have, you could make so many different little ones! Fantastical pumpkins, realistic pumpkins…pumpkins of all kinds! Find out about these little guys here.
I hope you’re found a project that captured your attention and your artistic eye! Good luck making all your fall treasures. And for some more easy DIY art that can be used any time in the year check out this article of mine.
