By Me Ra Koh |

Fall is my favorite season of the year. Creative crafts using fall leaves… well, that has got to be one of my favorite ways to spend a cozy afternoon! Ever since I was a young girl, holding my mom’s hand as we walked through the gold and red colored maple leaves, I have loved the fall. I’ll be first to admit that I’m not very good with crafts, but I LOVE how these different bloggers make the projects so simple. Craft bloggers blow my mind, and make projects doable! As the weather becomes cooler, and you find yourself craving hot cider and all things cozy, wander through these 15 creative crafts using fall leaves. You can do them with your kids or maybe as an Artist Date by yourself.

15 Creative Crafts Using Fall Leaves

Dreaming of Falling Leaves

This is the photo that got me thinking about putting this blog post together. I was on a walk by myself when a single leaf landed on my umbrella. Yes, my umbrella. (You never know when inspiration will find you!) Check out the next photo so you can see what I was seeing. The dreamy blur of color, lines, rain drops... my visual senses were so inspired! You could get this same effect with sticking wet leaves to your windows, but the solid color of the umbrella did add a dreamy feel to it.
