Happy Fall Y’all! And just in time, I launched my first fall craft that was so simple and fun!

DIY wooden pumpkins for easy fall decor - New Upcycle Ideas 646

Wooden pumpkins


Wooden pumpkins from 2x4s!

Gathering a few chunks of 2×4, these scrap wood pumpkins became yet another variation of wooden pumpkins! I just love these little shelf sitter types of projects, and this one in particular is super simple to create, thanks to a new stencil called Mini Pumpkin Patch Kit!

It includes 4 pumpkin carved faces designed to work on 2x4s… as well as other mini pumpkin sayings and such so you can stencil scrap wood or stencil using the two pumpkins on the stencil itself! Very fun mix and match kit!

And now I need to make more variations because my head sees so many more options!

I’m also working on another unique stencil idea that I haven’t seen online yet at all, it’s an all season idea so crossing fingers my test run works out the way I hope!

So let’s now visit some gorgeous upcycle project features from last week’s party to really bring on fall in a big way!

Who else is going to be laser focused on orange thread after seeing these adorable crochet thread pumpkins tutorial? LOVE how the stems are made as well! 

styrofoam pumpkins - New upcycle ideas 646

Styrofoam mushrooms


Styrofoam mushrooms by Homeward Found Decor

This patch of seemingly growing whimsical mushrooms have a secret… and that’s how they are made! Here’s a hint.. it’s something you use in summer and are easy to find. Check out this intriguing tutorial because this is DARLING!

pumpkin fall fireplace

Painted pumpkins fireplace display


Modern fall fireplace with painted pumpkins by Sadie Seasongoods

I think I’m going to start following Sarah into the thrift stores, because who would have thought of using a candelabra as a pumpkin stand for a fireplace?! Love how the pastel pumpkins bounce around at different heights. This fall display is genius and should be a real pumpkin display thing!

paper bag leaves

Paper bag leaves on a branch


Paper bag fall leaves on a branch by Homeroad

This clever fall leaf and branch tutorial has you a little fooled… because the paper bag really does resemble crunchy fall leaves! Super cool idea if you don’t want to bother with flaking real leaves nor the expense of purchasing dried. This turned out so cool! 

loop yarn pumpkins

Doesn’t this texture drive you right in?! Love this yarn pumpkin idea that couldn’t be simpler to make… it just looks technical! What a genius tutorial.
