21 Fall and Halloween craft ideas

21 Fall and Halloween craft ideas

Hi all, my family and I escaped for a little end of summer vacation these last two weeks. We are back, and ready to enjoy the last week of summer before school starts for my kids. Once school starts it is full speed ahead for fall! Today I wanted to share 21 Fall and Halloween craft ideas that I have shown here on my blog in the past.

21 fall and Halloween craft ideas, low cost and simple ways to decorate the home for the season!

My blog is growing, which is amazing and wonderful! That means that a lot of new faces have not seen my previous years content. I thought this would be a fun and helpful way for any of you crafting peeps to get some ideas.

I have some fun fall and Halloween crafts planned, that I hope to get moving on next week when my kids are back in school. If you are like me and have had kids home this summer, then you are probably just now getting out of the summer haze ans chaos, taking stock of your home and maybe a little eager to celebrate the fall season. This summer knocked me down in terms of juggling it all. I succeeded in being a stay at home Mom for my kids, but could not muster 100% for my blog as well, and even less for many home specific projects. I kept my house clean-ish, organized-ish, and that is about it.

It was my first year transitioning from being a full time blogger during the school year to having the kids home full time. While my kids are older at 9,7 and 6, they still demand a lot of attention, fun, activities, me tying shoes, making meals, stopping fights, and someone looking at someone mean. You all understand, kids… need I say more?

However, I am eager to get back into the routine of a full time job with this here little blog! I plan to dive head first into 21 Fall and Halloween craft ideas, then finally get my window seat done that I spoke about to you all. Once those two things are done, I have my sights set on my laundry room and the kids bathroom.

There is a ton of plans and ideas for my home, and finally 8 solid hours 5 days a week for me to do them! Also, I get to jump back into taking my time with this blog, responding to you lovely people here and on my social media. I have missed you guys!

Anyways, back to the crafting! These 21 Fall and Halloween craft ideas are what make it possible for me to decorate my home for each season. I have a family of 5, with a budget, and not an infinite amount of money to decorate. Cutting corners in making the decorations myself is what allows the seasonal decor to happen. I hope you enjoy my ideas from years past, and I am antsy to get to work on some new decorations soon for the coming fall season!

  24. I feel you. My kids are much older than yours but they are still as demanding as ever. LOL. Anyway, I like your two sided DIY Fall decor. That’s a smart idea. If you get tired of one, just flip it and you have a brand new decor!

  26. I love these Halloween decorating ideas. They look like even I could accomplish them, as I am not very crafty. Thanks for sharing, pinning for later!

  27. Your household sounds a lot like mine! It’s hard to focus on the blog as much as I’d like during the summer for all the reasons you mentioned. The kids just went back to school last week and I’m starting to settle back into a routine.

    As for the crafts, I really like all your fall decor! I want that pumpkin with the leaf cut out. So cute.
