Don't let the cooler temperatures keep you locked indoors. Get out and enjoy a beautiful hike in the crisp clean air, and try your hand at one of these fun four nature crafts to celebrate the season.
Tree sculptures: I love this idea for outdoor sculptures from Spoonful, both for its simplicity and its creative use of natural objects. The best part is that once you are finished, you can leave the artwork behind for other hikers to find and enjoy.
Birdseed biscuit: Don't forget your feathered friends while you're baking this fall. This cute heart-shaped birdseed biscuit bakes up into a bird feeder that's beautiful to look at and yummy for the birds.
Fall harvest candle: I love this beautiful fall candle idea from Gingerbread Snowflakes. It's very easy to make and would make a great gift idea for the holidays!
Acorn necklaces: Looking for a quirky craft to make with your outdoor treasures? These acorn necklaces are a fun way to bring nature indoors and carry a little piece of it around with you all day long.
