fall themed gifts that are handmade

Coasters with fall leaves (1) from One Bunting Away use fabric scraps in leaf shapes stitched onto cloth squares. More autumn foliage, but this time in the form of modern colorblock cork table decor (2) from Inspired By Charm—great for tabletop hot plates and coasters. Thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, how about this burlap Thanksgiving table runner (3) from The Seasoned Homemaker, decorated with DIY iron-on leaves made from fabric scraps and fusible web?

Now, for table accents, try your hand at this fun DIY mosaic fall vase (4) from Mom Spotted, made with colored tissue squares held in place on a glass jar with Modge Podge. Or these leaf mason jar candle holders (5) we found on Spark & Chemistry, that have the light shining through fabric autumn leaves decoupaged on with Mod Podge, too. Or this striking DIY leaf bowl (6) from Modge Podge Rocks, made with faux autumn leaves bonded together in a bowl shape with Stiffy —a Mod Podge product! Finally, get crafty with leftover wine corks and make your own drink coasters (styled by Bellenza)!
