It’s the first day of November, which means it’s time to take down your spooky decorations and celebrate the rich colors and cozy feel of autumn. You’ll want to curl up by a fire with a good cup of tea and maybe a cozy yarn or quilting project once your house is decorated with these wonderful fall crafts.

Acorn Cap Candles for Thanksgiving

Keep wine glasses festive and easy to identify with an easy wine glass charm craft. You can either add names to the felt charms, or assign each person a different colored leaf. People can wander with their wine, and you won’t need to worry about extra dishes when someone loses their glass!

Utensils Holder

By Paper Crafts Contributor, Lauren Romano.

Decorating the table is one of the best things about throwing a picnic (other than eating of course). Rather than throwing all the napkins and utensils into their own respective holders, make it a bit more decorative by making a place setting for each person. It’s inexpensive and you can personalize it any way you wish, including writing the person’s name on the outside of it.

What you’ll need:

Step 1. Measure your gingham scrapbook paper to the size of the toilet paper tube.

Step 2. Apply Mod Podge over the outside of the tube (I used a foam brush), then wrap the paper around it. Press tight, especially around the edges so it doesn’t curl up when guests use it.

Step 3. I left my picnic utensils holder plain so you can see how it looks before you add anything onto it. You can leave it plain, but some ways you can decorate it include putting a red ribbon around the center or using a black marker to write the person’s name. An extra cute option is to purchase paper ants and glue them along the utensils holder.

Step 4. Purchase matching utensils and napkins, then place them in the utensils holder.
