FIVE FUN FALL CRAFTS

When I was a kid I loved this time of year, it signalled back-to-school, conker fights and collecting the biggest and most beautiful Autumn leaves.  This year nature seems to be putting on the most spectacular display, and with the weather feeling frosty too it’s certainly made me reminisce.  With  the early nights and damp days preventing your little ones playing outside I’m pretty sure you’re looking for fun ways to keep them entertained indoors, so I was inspired by my leaf-collecting days and found these five fun fall crafts that are sure to delight children of all ages!

GLITTER LEAVES

Kids Crafts Fall Glitter LeavesEveryone loves glitter. Fact. So give your autumn leaves a glamorous makeover with the help of some glue and a little bronze, gold and copper sparkle.  Add some ribbons to make a pretty garland to add some cheer to a dull corner of a playroom or kiddies room. {via House of Jade Interiors}

LEAF MOBILE

PAPER LEAF GARLAND

On a damp day leaf collecting might not be the greatest idea (no-one wants a house full of soggy leaves!), but you can still have some fall fun by creating a leaf garland out of paper.  Mix up the colours to create your own personal look! {via A Beautiful Mess}

AUTUMN COOKIES

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
