Fall is just around the corner and it’s time to set aside the dog days of summer for the crisp and chilly autumn season. I love crafting and decorating for any season, but something about fall makes me go overboard.

Wood craft items are inexpensive to create, easy to find, and look perfect for fall. Here’s a roundup of some of the best wood crafts for fall.

    I love this wood pallet from the Magic Brush. It’s a little fall-ish, a little Halloween-ey, and completely perfect for the porch. Just a pallet and some paint and you’ve got yourself a festive décor for the front door.   wood-1   Photo Courtesy of themagicbrushinc.com

    These little pumpkins are also made from pallet wood, but you’d never know it. Simply cut apart a pallet to get thin strips of wood and stack them together to make the perfect pumpkin décor, big or small depending on your space.    wood-2Photo Courtesy of littlehouseoffour.com

    Wood slices are easy to find at craft and hobby stores, and now they can be created into perhaps the easiest pumpkin décor you’ve ever seen. They are also double sided, so you can do white on one side and orange on the other to swap things out, or use one side for Halloween and switch them for Thanksgiving.  wood-3  Photo Courtesy of anightowlblog.com

    OK, I’m not a huge fan of black cats – but aren’t these the cutest! I love their little faces. All it takes is one 2×4 and a little bit of black paint. You could even replace the raffia with a patterned ribbon for tiny kitty bowties.  wood-4  Photo Courtesy of ourcloverhouse.blogspot.com

    Got a scrap of beadboard lying around? Make it into a candy corn! Make this wood craft by adding a little bit of ribbon and a little sprig!wood-5  Photo Courtesy of  idigpinterest.com 

    Wood porch pumpkins are a popular project because they are easy to make, and simple to personalize. You can use 4×4 posts or pillars with wood stems and a nice pumpkin orange paint.   wood-6Photo Courtesy of  hazelandruby.com 

    If you have plenty of corks lying around, arrange them into a cork pumpkin that looks beautiful on a countertop or end table. A few felt leaves is all it takes to pull this wood craft together.  wood-7Photo Courtesy of mygourmetconnection.com

    I love the simplicity of this barn wood craft. It looks great on the front porch, but it would also look nice in the entry way, stair landing, or kitchen corner. It’s simple, easy to do, and you can use one side for fall and the other for the holiday season. That’s a home décor two-fer!    wood-8Photo Courtesy of hometalk.com
