1. Paint decorative acorns
In many places, acorns are found in abundance this time of year. They are beautiful for filling clear vases or candle holders and to use to make napkin holders, place cards, wreaths or any other Fall-themed decoration you can think off. If you are going to gather your own acorns, make sure to pick up only freshly fallen ones. Then soak them in water for some time to remove dirt. Next, tap them dry with a towel and place them in one layer on a baking sheet and bake them for an hour or so at 220-250 degrees. This will help killing any bugs hiding inside. After that procedure, the acorns are ready to be used. You can spray paint them or apply metallic paint with a small brush. You can also choose to paint only the caps or even to apply some glue and glitter on them. Of course, applying a layer of vegetable oil on the shells to give them a nice shine can be enough to have a beautiful natural decoration item, without any artificial help. You can also use a glue gun to glue on little pieces of twine to make hanger and hang the acorns from branches.
2. Make a Fall Wreath
To make a fall wreath is one of the easiest ways to get a stunning and long lasting decoration item that can be both displayed on the front door to welcome guests or inside the home to decorate a room. First you must decide the character of the wreath and choose the items you want to use to make the wreath. The next step is to choose how big you need your wreath to be. Take a foam wreath and cover it with sheet moss for a natural look, using your best friend in crafts: the glue gun. Next, take some fabric, like burlap ribbon, and loop it over the wreath so you create the hanger. Now you can use the glue gun and some florist picks if needed, to secure the items you choose. Fill the gaps with moss, fabric or smaller decorative items and you are done.

3. Recycle Jar Lids to Create a Pumpkin
To make this easy project you don’t really need a lot. Just a few jar lid bands (about 20 should be enough), cinnamon or wooden sticks, yarn or twine, burlap pieces and spray paint, if you want to paint the lids into a different color. If you do want to paint the lids, paint them and let them dry completely first. Choose yarn or twine in a similar color to the lids. You can choose any color, like orange, yellow or even white or black. You can also paint or draw on the lids. For something more sophisticated, think about wrapping twine or a strip of an old book page around each lid. When your are done preparing the lids, run a piece of yarn or twine trough them and tie it, making sure that all the lids are facing in the same direction. Arrange the lids so they remind the shape of a pumpkin. Now add the cinnamon sticks to the middle as stems and cut two pieces of burlap in order to have some leafs. To secure them, you can use a few drops of glue with the glue gun.
