Fall is the perfect time to decorate your home inside and out. My son loves to help decorate but I will admit, I occasionally get caught up in the perfection of decorating. The last couple of years, I have tried to incorporate fun kid friendly fall decorations that will blend with the chic sophisticated decor that we have collected over the years. The two styles should be able to coexist together right? Well, I think so and I thought you might enjoy some of these fun kid friendly fall and Halloween crafts that all ages will enjoy.
Last year my son and I made this Halloween wreath. We used an old laundry basket cover and purchased some inexpensive Halloween themed fleece to make a flower. You can see how we made this wreath here.
This little family of gourds is one of my favorites. How fun to make a gourd family!
This is a fabulous idea for making an autumn tree.
How adorable is this. Walnut shells as a boat with some leaves and twigs. My son will love this project :).
Caterpillar painted pumpkins, so adorable.
BHG has a great template on their site for this painted patchwork pumpkin. Click on the BHG link under the picture if you are interested in downloading the template.
My dad and son have a spot outside where the bird condominiums have taken over. They made a few bird feeders over the summer and my dad fastened them to one of the sheds outside. This little guy from Martha Stewart would fit right in!
I think the bird feeder and nutty boats will be first on my son’s list while the painted pumpkins will be my first choice. How about you, do you incorporate kid friendly fall decorating into your home? For more pumpkin decorating ideas, check out our painted pumpkins tutorial.
