If you’re looking for a few quick fall craft ideas, Gloria and I have four to share with you that are not only quick, but are easy and fun. These were all created by starting out with purchased craft supplies and then embellished in our own way. You can tell which one of us is the more artistic one.
When Gloria sent me photos of this adorable chalk board cutting board, I asked if she had taken before photos of it. She had not. Her reasoning was it was so easy, she didn’t think it was something we’d want to post on the blog. I disagreed! She purchased the chalkboard cutting board at Michaels and free handed the design on to it.
She bought this larger chalk board from World Market and again, she free handed the design. I mentioned that I thought the pumpkin looked great and she said that was the easy part. Clearly, she is much more artistic than I am!
This quote is one of Gloria’s favorites for fall. You might be familiar with it from “The Great Gatsby.”
This pumpkin cutout is something I purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts. It was unfinished wood.
I painted it using Waverly Chalk paint in cashew and sanded it to distress it a little. I used a piece of felt and added a lace overlay for backing and glued it to the back of the pumpkin. Chip board letters are glued to the top. From start to finish, this took about 15 minutes.
Another purchase from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft is this Thankful Pumpkin. I also painted and sanded the wood.
I gave it a coat of peach chalk paint, followed by a coat of cashew chalk paint and then sanded it. I added the same color felt as I used for the cutout pumpkin to allow the word to stand out better.
We’re both happy with how our quick and easy fall crafts turned out.
