Fall is a beautiful time to spend in a log cabin. The leaves turning, a chill in the are, cozy evenings around the fireplace are made for a rustic setting. Maybe the kids have a fall break, maybe it’s just a weekend getaway or maybe you live in an amazing log cabin year round. Regardless of the circumstances, Fall crafts are a great way to get your whole family to enjoy the Autumn weather and get ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

  4. Cut the black paper into eyes, noses and mouths in traditional jack-o-lantern styles.

Other Fall Craft Ideas

There are many Fall crafts you can complete while hanging out in your log cabin. Here are few more ideas:

Dryer Vent Pumpkins
Use pieces of dryer vent tubing to make fall pumpkins.

Pumpkin Wine Glass Candle Holders
Invert a wine glass and paint it to resemble a pumpkin (the glass stem should be green like a pumpkin stem. Put Autumn scented candles on top to give that great rustic log cabin aroma.
