DIY 15 FALL Crafts video
Fall Craft #1 Rock Painting
This craft is really simple and fun! Some ideas for painting on the rocks are fall leaves, pumpkins, or whatever your kids would like to paint. It can get a little messy with the paint so make sure you have space to paint. Before you paint the rocks make sure to wash off and dry them. This helps the paint stick.
Supplies you will need:
- Rocks: round or oblong, from the garden
- acrylic paint
- paint brushes
- paper plates or something to paint on,
- large surface area to paint
- paper towel
Fall Craft #2 Leaf Paint Mural
To make this fall craft you will need to gather a bunch of leaves. Then you paint the leaves with a fall color of your choice. Next you press the leaf onto the card stock paper to make a leaf print. Do this with a few different leaves to make a mural. We used different types of leaves and different fall colors to paint them. Just remember this does get a little messy because kids will be touching the painted leaves.
Supplies you will need:
- leaves, all different shapes and sizes
- card stock, fall colors
- paint brushes
- different paint colors
- paper towels
- paper plates
Fall Craft #3 Fall Pendent Banner
The fall pendent banner is easy to make and a great decoration to hang in the house! To make the banner you first trace and cut out the triangles from the foam sheets. Next hole punch two holes into the triangle. Once your triangles are all cut out write your fall saying ie. Autumn, Fall, Happy Fall etc.. Next thread the string through all the triangles and hang it up!
Supplies you will need:
- foam sheets, colors of your choice (we picked red, yellow and orange for fall)
- hole punch
- Permanent Marker
