Crisp weather and the arrival of colorful leaves can spark the imagination. Add a flash of fall to your home without spending money at the craft store. Turn to nature for supplies and use this list of five free fall crafts for inspiration.


Leaf Rubbing Mural
This is a craft artists of all ages and abilities can enjoy. You'll start by hunting down some perfectly shaped leaves in your backyard or at a park. Lay them out smooth side down and cover them with white butcher paper. Select fall-colored crayons and start coloring. Filthwizardry.com also suggests using watercolors to add another dimension to this free fall craft.

Acorn Toadstools
Head to the backyard to gather supplies for this adorable free fall craft. You'll also need red and white paint, small brushes and a glue gun. According to twigandtoadstool.blogspot.com you'll start making your acorn toadstools by pulling the tops off your acorns and painting them. Once they're dry reattach them using the glue gun.

Felt Wool Pumpkin
No icon says fall quite like the pumpkin. They're fitting from Halloween until Thanksgiving. Find a free pumpkin pattern at craftideas.info to help you make a felted wool pumpkin to hang anywhere in your home. You'll need some low cost supplies including four felted wool sheets in orange and green, golden embroidery floss, scissors and batting.

Trick or Treat Banner
Head to poofycheeks.com to print a free Trick or Treat banner. You'll need some scissors to cut out the letters and ribbon for stringing them up. Hang from your front door or your mantel to add some festive decor without spending any money.

Hanging Leaves
Bring the feeling of falling leaves inside with a DIY leaf mobile. MarthaStewart.com explains how to dip the free leaves in beeswax to preserve them. Hang the leaves with clothespins so they dry. Display the preserved relics of fall from twine or monofilament to enjoy their color all season long.
