17 Creative Hobbies To Try This Fall!

Hello Friend!

We are already halfway through October, a season full of sensational delights – spicy scents, cooler breezes, warm snuggles… even the way that the light trickles through my windows in the morning time. Fall is magical! I don’t know about you, but this time of year always sparks my creative mind and I find my hands restless for busy work. That is how this post about creative fall hobbies came to be.

As I turned to Pinterest for fresh inspiration, I thought I would bring you along with me. You might not know this but I am incredibly passionate about women tapping into the creative depths of their soul and learning to express creativity in the ways they love! So without further ado, here are some DIY creative projects that I’m very inspired to try! I thought they all seemed possible – even for a beginner. (Because let’s be honest, who is actually a master of everything? It sounds exhausting!) Half the fun of creating is to learn new things! Keep reading to find some creative fall hobbies…


Nothing says autumn like a cozy accessory! Learning basic stitches is simple (thanks to YouTube) and while I don’t know how to knit (yet!) I’m sure it’s equally possible to learn some simple steps in an afternoon (bonus points if you can have a friend who can teach you in person or via zoom!) Patterns I’m loving…

1. Simple Sewn Plush Bunny

And it’s filled with dried lavender!

2. Naturally-Dyed and Crocheted Lovey

My own pattern and tutorial!

3. Mama Made Mini Dinosaurs

Shhhh! All the kids in my life are getting one of these for Christmas! (For real though! I’m already working my way through this pattern and it is so simple. You can find my materials here in my Amazon shop.)

4. Crochet Herringbone Pumpkins

Seriously?! So cute!

7. DIY Eucalyptus Wreath

This wreath is amazing even after it dries out!

The best idea for reusing tiny scraps of paper!
