Part of the allure of fall is not only the changing of the leaves, or the crisp, cool afternoons, or even a hot mug of apple cider, but it is the perfect time to ditch the summer décor in favor of pumpkins and everything orange, red, and yellow.
Before you head to the nearest store and load up on premade seasonal decorations, take some time to browse through our list of craft ideas. Each of these DIY projects can be used as fall decorations that can be left up until the first hint Christmas settles in for the final leg of the year.
