The time of year has come for you to package away your summer decorations and make the yearly trek into the attic to dust off your fall knickknacks. However, there is another way. Instead of the yearly routine of bringing box after box down, you can craft your own fall decorations. The process is simple, inexpensive, and fun for the whole family. There are a plethora of fall design ideas floating out there, much more than you will find in any box store. From wreaths to pumpkin posts, garlands, and candle holders, the art of crafting is an endless rabbit hole full of possibilities. With that in mind, here are several DIY crafting ideas that will liven up your home just in time for the changing of the leaves.
