Cut a real apple into two pieces and then coat one half in red and another in green. You better use oil painting color or fabric color for this purpose. Then stamp fabric or papers in order to make a simple and cute decoration.

8. Fall Wind Chime

Wind Chime Fall Crafts for Kids

This is perhaps the most interesting and the most colorful one on the list. This craft doesn’t only involve painting or stitching but also requires you to collect several things like rocks, short sticks, beads, dry fruits – anything and everything that catches your eyes and you find suitable to stitch in a wind chime. However, we suggest you not use real fruits or leaves since they will weather and mess up the entire handcrafted item. 

Once you have gathered all the essential items, it’s time to get into action. You can paint the rocks and beads in your favorite color. Make sure to color them in accordance with the color of the fall season so as to correspond with the season’s moods.

For instance, any variation of red, brown and orange will perfectly compliment the surroundings. If your collected items include any dry fruit or if you find the natural color of any bead or rock or stick is fascinating or unique, you don’t have to paint them. Nature has already painted them for you. 

Now comes the final step. Stitch them in multiple chains and ensure to unite the top of each chain together. That’s all. Your customized fall wind chime is ready. 

And yes, you can also add some jingle bells so that it rings every time the wind blows.

9. Button Branch 

Button Branch

Fall and colors are parallel. You can’t think one without another. Here’s another craft idea to compliment the colors of nature around you. All you need is to buy some buttons and chart paper. Fold the chart paper to make the branch of a tree.

Then paste the buttons around the branch in such a way that it produces an appeal of a tree branch. You can also stitch the branch on the cloth if you love stitching. Then you have to stitch the buttons as well. Make sure to buy the red, orange, yellow and green colored buttons so that the craft looks colorful yet not too flashy.

Soothing colors are more preferable to the eyes. The branch should be made of brown colored chart paper or brown colored string (in case you plan to stitch on cloth). Another important thing about this craft is its background.

Make sure to use a dark and contrasting color in the background that does not merge with the colors of any of the buttons or the branch of the tree. For instance, you can use nevi blue background so as to make the entire craft more prominent and appealing to the eyes. 

10. Pumpkin Seed Art

Colorful pumpkin seeds are ideal for art and craft. You can write anything on a piece of cardboard or even make a shape. Then fill the entire craft with colorful pumpkin seeds. Only make sure that the color compliments each other.

For instance, using the same colored seed for two adjacent letters doesn’t look much appealing. Check these minute details and surprise your parents or loved ones with your creative skill.
