Now that fall is here and your family will be spending more time indoors, you're likely looking for fun ideas for things to do during the chilly weather. Everyone loves getting creative with art projects, and these fun November craft ideas are sure to excite all of the budding artists in the family.

  • Popsicle Stick Scarecrow Magnet. Now that summer is over, use those leftover popsicle sticks to create something that's a bit more festive for fall! This fun magnet will look adorable on your refrigerator all autumn long.
  • Tie Dye Pumpkins. If you're not much of a traditionalist when it comes to decorating, try making these rainbow-hued tie dye pumpkins! By melting crayons over the pumpkin's surface, you can create a fun, multicolored effect.
  • Fall Mason Jar Candles. Glue fallen leaves to the sides of a clear glass Mason jar, place a tea light inside, and watch as the jar glows with a festive fall feel. These are the perfect DIY centerpieces for your Thanksgiving feast!
