The striped yellow, orange, and white will always bring to mind fond childhood memories and is a must for Halloween decorating. Here are some easy DIY candy corn crafts for making festive home decor.
Have you ever been in the mood to create something but didn’t know exactly what you want to make? This happens to me quite a bit.

This is exactly what I did before making this DIY Fall porch sign.

I have been to several flea markets and antique stores and have seen so many different door knobs for sale. The beauty of the old glass knobs has me tempted to switch out all of our knobs at home but this wouldn’t be real practical and I have never seen a whole set of matching knobs anyway.

So, I came up with a collection of door knob crafts that would be fun to try.
A while back, I bought a small vintage case stocked full of vintage buttons and I have been having fun with button crafts ever since.

Of course you can also just clip buttons off of old shirts, that can no longer be worn, and start your collection that way!

If you don’t have access to real leaves, you can simply substitute artificial leaves for these projects.
If you haven’t played around with air dry clay before, I highly recommend it. It reminds me of playing with Play Dough as a kid.

It was easy to come up with some simple Fall clay projects that anyone can do to for some seasonal decor. Both acorns and leaves are fun to make and they are so quick to do! You don’t even have to finish them with paint if you don’t want to.
