Fall Craft Ideas Using Recycled Materials

With the kids back in school, now is a good time to get back into some decorative craft projects.  The first place to start is with your Fall decor.  However, instead of spending a lot of money in seasonal decorating, I am going to show you how you can incorporate recycled materials into your projects for a much more budget and eco friendly option.

All of the Fall craft ideas, that I have found, use at least one item that has been recycled.  Last year, I made the pictured sweater pumpkin out of one of my husband’s old and worn sweaters which gave a warm neutral look to a common Fall item.  Plus, I didn’t have to throw out a sweater that was stretched out and too worn for charity.

Here is the list of other Fall craft ideas that you can try:

Fall bottle vases by Crissy's Crafts.

Re-use those wine bottles for beautiful vases for your Fall table.  Decorative paper and rope add a little extra embellishment to the vase filled with silk flowers.

Re-purposing brown bottles for Fall decor by Parents.com.

These glass jars make a nice arrangement with the white letters mod podged on.  The brown coloring is perfect for Fall.

fall-can-crafts

Tin can and mason jar candle holders by Frugal Interior Design.

Tin cans and mason jars can be transformed into stunning candle holders with just a little embellishing!  Gluing reeds or jute string to a can makes a perfect base for a pillar candle and a few colorful leaves inside a glass jar is all that is needed for some great Fall color.
