Head to your local pumpkin patch or grocery store and pick out a pumpkin that is large enough to act as a vase for your dining room or kitchen table for this fall craft idea for the home. You’ll also want to gather seasonal flowers, dried leaves and berries as well as an oasis floral foam to fit inside of your pumpkin.
At home, hollow out the pumpkin, and place a small container that fits well within the pumpkin. Fill this container with the oasis floral foam and enough water to soak the foam so that some water pools at the base. Arrange the flowers, leaves and berries to suit your tastes.

Twig Coasters Fall Craft
This Martha Stewart fall craft idea for twig coasters for the home prompts you to explore a wooded area near your home. While walking, search for small, straight twigs — you will need quite a lot. At home, trim the twigs to roughly the same length, about five inches. Take 20 twigs, tie a knot on one twig at the end and then wrap around each of the 20 twigs until you reach the end. Repeat on the other side for beautiful coasters.
Cornucopia Fall Craft
This fall craft idea for the home is perfect for the homeowner who wants to create a piece of home decor but doesn’t have a lot of time on his or her hands. Just make a quick trip to the local craft store to pick up an already made cornucopia. Then, visit your local pumpkin patch or farmer’s market to pick up wheat stalks, gourds, small pumpkins and apples.
Lay the wheat stalks flat on the cornucopia to serve as a bed for your other fall goodies. Once the wheat is in place, arranged the gourds, pumpkins and apples to make the cornucopia look like it’s bursting with fall goodness. All of this should be done where you plan to show off your cornucopia so that you don’t have to move it once it’s all set up. It makes a lovely table centerpiece.
As you can see, fall craft ideas for the home can be as involved and time consuming as you want them to be. Whether you have the time to hand make coasters or a cornucopia centerpiece, each of these fall craft ideas will, however, get you outside to enjoy all that fall has to offer. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the season while dressing up your home.
