I grew up in a household where my mother would change the display on our front hall table, dining room table, and living room sideboard with the seasons. In the summer, we might have seashells artfully arranged in hurricane glasses. In the winter, there might be whitewashed branches with delicate glass ornaments hanging from their branches. My mom managed to evoke lovely moods with creative items found or made–on a budget. Since I don’t get to visit my parents’ house as often as I’d like, I add whimsical touches of the season to my own home now.
Knit, crochet, and craft your own decor items for the fall season. I’ve picked out 12 patterns that are great stash-busters (so you can clear space for more yarn!) as well as as items that can be made as a set (so you get the most mileage out of your yarn purchase).
For knitters who like the felt designs below: knit a large rectangle of wool, felt it well, and then cut out the leaf-designs to make your own version. Want to knit your own leaves? Click here for a stitch pattern.
