Easy Art Projects for Fall

The rich colors of fall offer such joy for simple art projects.

Creativity, it’s good theology; it’s what God did in the beginning.” ~ Ann Voskamp, Why Everybody Needs to Make Art Everyday: 7 Keys to Creativity

Today I share some of our favorites…

Fall Tree Reflection

Apple or Pumpkin?

Fall Leaf

Tree Silhouette

Harvest Moon


To the Woods (just adapt the summer colors for fall – pull out those yellows, oranges and reds)

Marsh Chalk Pastel – can you just imagine the dragonflies zipping by?

Macaroni and Cheese Chalk Pastel– for those times you just need a little comfort food

Coca-Cola Chalk Pastel – because you can enjoy making one and smiling any time of year

Fudge Pie – the dessert of chalk pastels (with the recipe too)


  • A note on chalk pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons (50 free lessons now) are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable. Nana also teaches acrylic lessons.

Even more art for all your ages in our chalk pastel tutorial ebooks! No need for a long list of art supplies.

I also invite you to subscribe to Hodgepodge (it’s free!) Don’t miss any of our subscriber-only art lessons!

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.

    • Thank you Barb! Leaves are already changing and falling here in the south. There’s a chill in the mornings, shorter days. My littlest said, “I’m ready for a fire in the fireplace and socks on my feet!” :)

  2. Pinned and looking forward to trying some out! 😀
