This amazing series of pumpkin crafts for fall is all about easy, recycling, and using what you have to make something spectacular with it! The moms below are using things like tin cans from her recycling bin, shredded scrap paper, and old broken fencing to create really fantastic fall crafts with it! If your home isn’t fall-ready because you don’t have the extra funds lying around to buy all of those pretty things you see in the store, that’s okay! You can decorate your entire house with items you have lying around, in the back of your closet, or stuffed in your garage! Check out all of the great pumpkin crafts (below) to see what I mean!

See what I mean? Mom on a Timeout made pretty pumpkins from scrap paper, toilet paper rolls, and inexpensive party ribbon! Who would have thought to do that otherwise? Not me! I’m certainly not that crafty. Maybe if someone put me in a mommy timeout I might come up with something like this too (ha!) Seriously though, they are adorable and I’m already thinking about all of the ways I can use this same technique to make some Christmasy crafts too! Are you thinking about ornaments like I am?… Before you jump down to the next project, read how to make Scrappy Pumpkins HERE.

Tin cans are awesome! My husband thinks I’m crazy because it breaks my heart to throw them into the recycling bin after washing them out. I’m like, “I see a herb garden for the kitchen window, a scarecrow, pumpkins, art organizers! Come on honey! Share my vision!” But no, if I want to make something like this, I have to be sneaky and hide the tin cans out of sight for a few days. Suburbia Unwrapped has the right idea though! She’s with me! Hop over to grab this simple pumpkin craft tutorial HERE.

If you ever see old fencing or pallet wood listed for free in your area, send someone to grab it for you! There are so many creative projects you can make with weathered wood and old pallets. Marty’s Musings made a couple of cute pumpkins her entryway with fallen fencing from her backyard. Visit her blog to find out how she did it and where she found her fall-font lettering HERE.
