Slice the top off a Styrofoam ball to make this pretty little autumn accent

Fall crafts are great because you can put them out in early fall and leave them through Thanksgiving or even longer. With the leaves changing and the temperatures getting even colder, reds and oranges and yellows are a major color theme in autumn decor. Today, we'll look at some ways to bring the outdoors in through crafting.
Felt is typically a staple at most crafters' homes, so it's easy enough to repurpose some of that material into decor this fall season. You most likely have some lying around already, so get ready to be inspired to use it in different, crafty ways.
