Quick and easy fall crafts

Phee and I have been making all sorts of decorations for fall and Thanksgiving. We've got next Thursday covered! These are all simple projects. And the prep time for each is minimal so you can easily get one of these crafts ready during nap time or after dinner.

Surprisingly, we haven't tackled turkeys yet this year. I'm sure we'll make at least one of those this weekend so that we have something to decorate the dinner table on Friday when we have our Thanksgiving dinner.

And then, it's on to Christmas!

Acorn people #fall #craft ~ Life in Random Bits
 {Acorn People}
You need acorns and tops, googly eyes, a permanent marker, a glue gun and some embellishments. Glue on the eyes, glue the embellishments to the tops or to the acorns, affix hats, draw a mouth and you're good to go!

Paper Scarecrows #paper #fall #craft ~ Life in Random Bits
 {Paper Scarecrows}
You need construction paper, gingerbread/body shape, scrapbook paper, yellow tissue paper, glue/adhesive.
We had some die cut gingerbread person shapes already so we started with those. Glue one down to your construction paper background. Use another to trace the scrap paper for pants, shirt, vest, jacket, and hat. Glue various clothes to the scarecrow. Cut out corn stalks and glue on bits of wadded up yellow tissue paper for corn. Add some crows flying around for fun.

Tissue paper tree #paper #craft #fall ~ Life in Random Bits
{Tissue Paper Trees}
You need tissue paper in fall or leaf colors, brown construction paper for trunks, construction paper background, glue.
Cut up the tissue paper into squares, cut out a trunk shape, glue it all down and create some pretty fall leaf scenes.

Magazine leaf trees #fall #craft #leaves ~ Life in Random Bits
{Magazine Leaf Trees}
You need magazine pages covered with fall colors, a large piece of paper, adhesive, and crayons to draw a trunk. 
I cut various leaf shapes out of fall-colored magazine pages. Then we drew a tree trunk and started gluing down the magazine leaves.
