Fall is such a lovely time of the year here in the Pacific Northwest—half of the trees turn bright yellow and red while the pines remain their stoic deep green. Something about the fall makes a lot of us get into a crafty mood as well. These crafts for fall are great for adults AND kids (scroll to the end for the kid-friendly projects.)

I love the diversity in these fall season crafts: there are free printables, silver dipped acorns, and cute pumpkins galore! All of the contributors to this post are super talented, and there’s bound to be something for everyone here. Enjoy!
