5 Minute Fall Projects
When in the mood to put together a quick project I always look around to see what I have on hand. You can decorate everyday items with just about anything. Keep an open mind and think outside of the box.

Duck Tape Jack-o-Lantern Watering Can
Fun and customizable. Take a watering can and use Duck Tape, electrical tape, or painters tape, to make eyes and a mouth.
I used colorful tiger print Duck Tape I found hanging on the pegboard over my workbench. All it took was a couple of minutes to cut a short strip of tape into jack-o-lantern eyes and mouth. You could also make a ghost out of the watering can by using black Duck Tape.
Pretty scarves can be used for all kinds of things.
I found this blue and green plaid scarf at the thrift store. Looking around the shop one day for wreath inspirations I spotted the scarf. You can’t get much simpler than tying the scarf around a grapevine wreath. It’s easy to change out the scarf with the seasons.
Tacky can be cool. Take these small white pumpkins I decorated with upholstery tacks.
They are definitely cool. I used bright gold upholstery tacks and antiqued brass tacks to decorate the pumpkins. Just stick the tacks in the pumpkins all willy-nilly. I was surprised at how long the pumpkins stayed fresh. I finally tossed them out at Christmas time.
Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe Table
I got this idea from a magazine.
They made a pumpkin tic tac toe board out in the yard. I made one on a table in my family room. The kids had a lot of fun with it. The lines are FrogTape ShapeTape but you could use any kind of tape to make the lines.
Fall Birdhouse Flower Planter
Take an item and use it in an unusual way.
The chippy paint birdhouse with the lift up roof was just calling for a plant of some kind. The bold orange/red flowers were perfect.
Fall Rake Wreath
I bought the green rake at my favorite junk shop and the small floral wreath at the thrift store. The wreath didn’t look like much by itself but hanging on the rake it’s an attention getter.
Orange And Green Kitchen Display
This is more of a display than a DIY.
If you don’t have a glass pumpkin you can always use a tall round vase or maybe just a regular glass bowl to display limes and oranges. The display of Fall colors is nice without shouting Halloween.
Spray Painted Pumpkin
Use painters tape to add a bit of design to a white pumpkin.
I taped off a small area of this small pumpkin and spray painted it with Rustoleum Champagne color paint. Very classy. Spray paint several and display together for a dramatic effect.
This project is perfect for Fall but can be displayed year round.
I have bits and pieces of jewelry I’ve collected over the years and they are great for dressing up everyday items. I like to use hot glue for attaching the jewelry to the bottles.
You can always pop the glue off with a flat tip screwdriver and reuse the bottles and jewelry. This is a great way to show off a collection of vintage jewelry.
Candy Corn And Salted Nuts Fall Treat
All this DIY makes me hungry and I have a sweet tooth.
Candy corn and salted cocktail peanuts are my favorite Fall treat. But it’s not enough to mix the two together. You need to store them in a pretty container and serve with a silver plate spoon.
Wood Crate Ghost
Another project using tape, this time black electrical tape.
Googly eyes are my favorite craft supply for kids projects. They make the kids smile and me too. This is an example of a project where you can reuse the item in future projects. Just remove the tape and sticky back googly eyes.
