Autumn is just around the corner, so let’s start right away with a great list of easy fall crafts for kids, shall we? Today, we are sharing cute Fall Craft Projects Yarn Wrapped Pumpkin. There’s just something about autumn that brings out the artisan side of me, perhaps it’s the beautiful colors that inspire me or the cooler weather that makes me want to feel inside – whatever the reason, autumn is the beginning of the season of crafting around these parts.

Fall is a great time for kids to get creative and make some fun crafts. It’s also a perfect way to spend time with them and teach them about the season and what it means. This blog post will provide you with some fun fall craft projects that are easy enough for children of all ages to complete by themselves or with an adult helper!

So I found the best fall craft perfect for children of all ages. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Reversible Yarn Wrapped Pumpkin

We love some Yarn Wrapping! Tactile and ideal for fine motor skills and I feel that the results are adorable.

I have a special pumpkin garland wrapped in yarn – not any old pumpkin garland.. but a REVERSIBLE. Yes… do it now. So throughout October, you’ve got the cutest Jack O’Lantern Garland to decorate your home with. On November 1, turn over your Jack O’Lanterns wrapped in thread. Without further ado, let’s start this! You need a few common supplies to make this cute pumpkin.

What you need

  • Orange Wool
  • Cardboard (recycled)
  • A little paint or green paper or green wool
  • A little black paper or black felt
  • Something for hanging (e.g. bakers twine)
  • Scissors
  • A little glue
  • A tin can (for tracing)

Instructions (step by step)

Begin by making your cardboard pumpkin template. Trace the tin can. Then pick up your circle and, with the pencil sketch, a slightly flattened circle – give it a more oval or pumpkin shape. Add a pencil stem. Your basic pumpkin is ready!

Cut your template and outline and cut more pumpkins. If you want, paint your pumpkin stem green!

I cut a small piece at the top of your pumpkin to allow you to wedge the wool up to start wrapping your yarn pumpkin.

Once finished, we tied the thread around the pumpkin stem and left a long piece to hang up our pumpkin craft.

Yay, You have completed it!

Pumpkin Apple Stamping

Wait!! Don’t dump those bruised apples! One of my favorite ways to use outdated ingredients is to use them in kids’ kitchen crafts!

These Apple Pumpkin Stamps are a great way to use bruised apples as kids won’t eat them while creating cute and seasonal art!

What you need

  • Apples, cut in half
  • Orange tempera paint
  • Green tempera paint or washi tape
  • Plates for paint
  • Thick paper

Instructions (step by step)

Cut the apples into two along the stem.

Pour orange paint on a shallow and rimmed plate. If you work with toddlers, put a fork in the skin of the apples to facilitate stamping.

Show children how to soak the flat “flesh” side of the apple in the paint and make a clean stamp on their paper or tissue.

Let dry completely before adding any details like stems, worms, or faces!

Hurrah! You have made it.

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy some of those crafts you put on hold during summer. It’s a great way for kids and adults alike to spend quality time together while creating something meaningful, not just another piece of throw-away junk that will end up in the landfill next week. We hope you enjoyed this article and found it to be a fun and interactive way to discover new fall crafts for kids.
