If you want to really bring the light into your home, then this is a really fun and simple way to add some festivity to your dining room table. Just scoop the top off of an apple and add a tea light for some fruity, fall furnishings!
Painted Burlap Runners
This is a fantastic way to dress up anyone's table, whether you have a tablecloth or not. Burlap runners are easily purchased on the cheap and with a few strokes of paint, you'll find your crafting skills in hot demand!
A super awesome craft idea that you and your family can try begins with collecting a bundle of sticks and twigs and placing them in a vase in your home. Everyone can then make little leaf-notes of things they are thankful for in their lives. Definitely give this one a try!
This one is perfect for kids who love to collect the best leaves from outside! Put their findings to use with some produce from the grocery store, and with a few paper cut-outs you'll have another turkey-lurkey for the dinner table!
Who says bling has to be expensive? Give yourself a golden treat to decorate your kitchenware with this metallic paint! It's a really great way to spend an afternoon on these colder fall days, and it gives you something shiny to illuminate your home! Especially if you were wondering what you were going to do with all those pumpkins after Halloween.
What makes this decoration so amazing is how easy they are to make! Take your small glass candle holders and then head outside to collect as many beautiful colored leaves as you can!
When you come back inside, grab some hot chocolate and spray glue and get designing! You can match leaves and colors like the picture above, or you can mix them up for some stunning presentations!
