Best Unique Fall Crafts for Older Adults

Fall is the best time for crafts! As the weather cools off, it’s time to enjoy warm apple cider and an afternoon of painting, carving or sewing. Here are our top 3 fall crafts to try with your loved one.

Fall Planters

Crafting fall planters is a must if your loved one is a plant lover. These can be made by purchasing traditional pots and painting fall quotes and pictures. If you want to take it a step further you can create planters with hollowed out pumpkins. These pumpkins can also be painted or carved. If carving images into the pumpkin, be sure to just graze the surface, as you do not want to put a hole in the front of the pumpkin.

Painted Acorns

On a sunny afternoon, take a walk and collect acorns. These can be painted to be pumpkins, scarecrows or even haunted houses! Let their imagination run free.

Goofy Gloves

Get ready for winter by crafting goofy gloves this fall. You and your loved one can sew phrases such as ‘Cat Lover’ onto the finger tips, or back of the gloves. If you and your loved one are really skilled, then try to sew an image on the gloves!

These activities will make for such a fun fall visit with your loved one. These activities will keep their mind active and can be done even if you have small kids tagging along for the afternoon.

P.S. Don’t forget the apple cider!
