Easy Fall Crafts

We've thought up some fun and easy fall crafts to help you to make your own home-made wind chimes. 

A great decoration for the front porch for the fall.

Fall brings with it leaves changing coloring, cool weather, and followed by snow.

We've got some easy fall crafts that you can use the nature of fall to make pretty decorations.

To make these wind chimes, you will re-create the scenery you see on your fall walks.

You can easily take a nice walk during each of the four seasons and make a wind chime for each one! A fun decoration that can be make for each of the four seasons, even during some of the holidays like Halloween or July 4th.

Fall Themed Wind Chimes

Go for a nice walk in the fall weather. Take a few pictures or just look around and keep a mental picture of what you see. 

Use these scenery pictures to help you re-create a great fall wind chime.

Craft Supplies:

  • Tin can
  • Paint
  • String
  • Two walnuts
  • Bead
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Step #1:

Paint your tin can with a base color. We have chosen yellow as a nice bright base.

Set the can aside to allow your base coat to dry. You may need a few coats for an even color.

Step #2:

Glue the two walnuts to a piece of string. We used hot glue for a sturdy hold.

Make the string long enough that one walnut hangs slightly out of the bottom of the tin can. 

Step #3:

Decorate the can as you like. We chose to fill it with fall colored leaves.

Step #4:

Punch a hole in the top of the can. You can have a parent drill a hole, or carefully use some scissors. 

Thread the end of your stringed walnuts through the hole.

Step #5:

Place a bead where you want the string to stay. Glue that bead in place so the can stays at this length. 

You can also add a bead to the inside of the can, rather than glue the two together.

Take your beautiful and easy fall crafts and hang them on the front porch or the back patio!
