40+ Upcycling Projects for Fall

40+ Upcycling Projects for Fall

Every year, I look forward to the “-ber” months (i.e., September-December) for an abundance of reasons. Certainly the end-of-year holidays are wonderful, but more importantly, I simply love Fall. And there are an endless number of easy upcycling projects for Fall home decor to get you in the autumn mood.

And I, of course, am no stranger to my own collection of fall decor from upcycled items. It IS my favorite season of the year, after all.

Such as these painted gourds that I made from glass bottles I could no longer recycle.

And these decorative acorns I made from tweed coats that I bought at the thrift store!

Even though it won’t “feel” like Fall outside my door for a while yet, it doesn’t matter. I am ALWAYS in the mood for autumn.

And based on what I can tell from my Pinterest feed, I am DEFINITELY not the only one who is ready for Fall to arrive. Did you happen to see the modern fall display I put together for my fireplace this year?

Even my favorite Etsy shop is gearing up for Fall! I just LOVE what she did with this old fertilizer spreader for her front porch.

Whether you see a pumpkin in anything round, an acorn cap inside a bowl, or autumn leaves from the book you’re reading, it’s definitely time to start creating your some Fall decor.

And of course, I even included an entire chapter of upcycling projects for Fall in my first book, “Crafting with Flannel”!

I mean really, though. What goes better with Fall than flannel?

Excuse me while I go grab a mug of mulled cider while I get my autumn crafting on!
