Fall Wood Crafts
Many years ago I made a bunch of fall wood crafts as prizes for a harvest party. I love making things out of wood and painting.
Here are all the prizes. I also filled a few quart mason jars with candy corn and decorated them with orange and black raffia.
The Autumn Greetings sign is made out of 1 inch pine. It is just cut in a rectangle and painted. Then screw in eyelets are put on top and wire attached to them. Raffia tied in a bow finishes the sign off.
The oak leaves and acorns are also cut out of 1 inch pine. The leaves are all one piece. The acorns are cut out separately and attached with wire. A wire hanger is added and a raffia bow finishes it off.
The Autumn Blessings sign is cut out of 1/4 inch plywood. The pumpkin is cut out in one piece then cut apart into the three pieces. The leaves are also cut out of 1/4 inch plywood. After being painted the pieces are attached together using wire. It also has a wire hanger and is finished off with a raffia bow.
Fall is my favorite season and I love making fall crafts. It is also a busy canning season for me so I have very little fall crafts in my house. I really need to start keeping some of the things I make.
