Baking can be a great way to wind down, and food can connect many, especially during the colder months of the year. Wind down with the recipes in the articles and gather with loved ones for a fun fall celebration!

Fall is here! With the colder weather comes fun activities and recipes to try out this season. Here are a few recipes and crafts to try out throughout the season to ensure a satisfying fall full of exciting new things!

Baking

Pumpkin Pie:

Fall is the best season to bake a pumpkin pie due to the availability of pumpkins! Whether it is for a family gathering or just to have a fun pastime, this staple recipe is perfect for the cold weather as it approaches this year. It can be made quite easily with household items most people could find laying around throughout their kitchen. 

Pumpkin Spice Coffee:

Pumpkin spice flavored coffee is definitely popular right now, but it can be a hassle to go all the way to Starbucks to actually get a cup of it. Instead, it is much easier and time efficient to make one at home, as it is the perfect drink for fall. 

Pumpkin Spice chocolate chip cookies:

Chocolate chip cookies taste great as is, but they can actually taste much better with just a dash of pumpkin spice. Cookies are a great way to make one’s house smell great while having a sweet, warm treat to enjoy. So set your oven for 350 degrees and get baking!

Crafts

Knit Scarf:

Scarfs are a great way to remain covered during fall, especially as the cold breeze starts to pass more often. To keep the breeze from getting one sick, it’s best to wear a scarf. Crocheting one’s own scarf allows for more variability and options, as one can choose from the color down to the yarn thickness. So, get a hook and start crocheting this fall!

Candles:

Candles are a fun way to spice up a room, especially due to how beautiful they can look as a centerpiece or on a coffee table. Making candles is actually quite easy and can be a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon as it will create both a fun activity but also a comfy addition to one’s room throughout the season. Just get a cup you love and get going!

Knit Socks:

Socks are a great way to keep one’s body warm throughout the day, especially when the floor’s temperature drops quickly overnight. Crocheting a pair of socks can be quite easy and can be a super cute addition to one’s fall wardrobe. One can add bows or sew on designs to create a personalized piece to wear throughout fall and winter!

 Fall themed letters:

As Thanksgiving approaches, it can be great to show appreciation for others despite not being in the holiday season yet. Fall can be quite busy, especially for students, so fall themed letters letting others know how much one appreciates them can be a cute way to re

mind someone of their worth and importance through hard times.

Paperweight:

Fall is one of the best seasons to draw outside the home, especially due the change of leaf colors that will continue throughout the next few months. While it can seem like a fun activity to go out and paint, it can be hard to keep papers down due to the increase in wind. To combat it, and make your area cuter, consider making a fall themed paperweight with the use of a leaf. It is an incredibly simple DIY that will make all the difference in one’s illustrations!

Leaf Prints:

Young kids love to mess around with leaves, so a fun way to spend some time with smaller siblings or children is leaf printing! It is a fun pastime that will excite kids and give one more fall decor for the home (which is always a plus). 

Allow for these crafts and recipes to guide you through fall and into winter! All recipes/ instructions for crafts are within the slideshow attached to this article. Happy crafting!
