2. Fall Button Branch

If you are like me and have a large jar of buttons in your laundry room – this is the perfect fall craft for your littles! It’s super simple, children of all ages can enjoy it and when you group red, yellow and orange buttons together, the end result is an autumn masterpiece.

3. Fall Memory Jar

Fall comes and goes by so quickly, why not save a little bit of it in a memory jar to look back on when the days get dark and cold? It would be fun to add a photo of your family on your fall family trip, then add found items from a fall hike, along with any other memento that reminds you of fall.

4. Cork Mice

I have seen a lot of crafts that reuse leftover wine bottle corks – and I have made a few myself. However, these little cork mice might be one of my favorites! I can’t think of a single child who wouldn’t delight in making a set of these little cuties for the upcoming holiday table and mantle. So cute!

5. Dream Catcher

A dream catcher is a fun recycled craft to make with children because you can use many different found trinkets in the design. You can use leaves instead of feathers and it’s a great activity for honing a little one’s fine motor skills.

6. Fall Leaf Initials

Initials tucked in along with the books of the media center are all the home decor rage right now. Add an eco spin to the craft by wrapping your family initials in fall leaves that your children collect on a day out. Or if you are looking for initials to keep for the long haul, use fake leaves leftover from last year’s Thanksgiving crafts and get crafting.

7. Tin Can Birdseed Flowers

Once the weather gets chillier and especially when it starts to snow, it’s tougher for birds to find food quickly. Make it a little easier on the birds by making these adorable recycled tin can birdseed flowers. A set of these would look adorable lining your front flower beds or spread amongst the pumpkins in your backyard garden.

8. Felt Owls

If there is one animal that reminds me of fall, it’s the owl. You can find them in many Halloween decorations and they are just so adorable too! These felt owls could be made using leftover scraps of felt and in place of a Styrofoam ball, use another round item that you no longer use. Wouldn’t a set of these look adorable greeting your children each day when they get home from school?

9. Autumn Crowns

Celebrate fall with your little prince or princess by making recycled autumn crowns. It would be fun to take a fall family hike and collect leaves to make your crown – and then use either a cereal box or pieces of cardboard destined for the recycling bin to fashion the crown. This is a fall craft that all of your children will enjoy – regardless of gender.

10. Fall Leaf Banner

I am totally smitten with this fall leaf banner – put an eco spin on it by using newspaper slated for the recycling bin or an old book that is headed for Goodwill. Wouldn’t this be a fun banner to hang to celebrate fall?
