Now Halloween is over (We hope you had a wonderful and safe celebration) it’s time to focus on other fall crafting ideas so let’s take a look at some fun fall leaf crafting projects! With the abundance of these colorful gems that nature throws at us at this time of the year it’s why not turn them into stunning works of art to showcase the beautiful warm earthy tones they provide!
Below are 9 fun and simple craft ideas to decorate the home or enjoy some crafting time with the kids on a cool day. Some are just for ideas and inspiration and others have full tutorials taking you through the project step by step. Enjoy and happy fall crafting!
3. Fall Leaf Mason Jar Crafts

Though not made with real leaves, these fall colored mason jar luminaries look great. The tutorial is right here but to get the highly uniform appearance in the picture above, you will get better more even results with spray paint rather than craft paint. Craft paint is used in the tutorial linked to above, however brushing it on tends to leave a somewhat streaky appearance!
8. Metallic Painted Fall Leaves

The contrast of metallic paint against the rich red brown color of the leaf is amazing. This is a simple idea but highly effective – kind of like a leaf henna tattoo.
9. Exquisitely Painted Fall Leaves
Amazing what a little imagination, some fall leaves, paint and brushes can yield! Kind of like tribal markings, we think these look super cool! You could also try using the chisel tip of our earth color Crafty Croc chalk markers on autumnal leave for similar effect.
We hope you enjoyed these fall leaf crafting ideas and are feeling inspired to utilize the bounty of mother nature (and someone might appreciate a few less leaves to rake up in the yard!) We’d love to see your projects so feel free to share them here on our Facebook page. Thanks for reading and see you next time!
