As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, opportunities to spend time outside dwindle. What can you do for fun or entertainment when it's cold? Once pastimes like apple picking are done for the season, you should get out your paintbrushes and try your hand at one of these fall painting ideas.

Even if you've never painted before, there is something here for everyone. These fall painting ideas cover a wide range of inspiration. Some tutorials are inspired by the fall leaves and others are more specific to Thanksgiving or other autumnal occasions. These seasonal paintings are ideal for beginners as long as you are flexible on what the end result looks like.

Try not to take these projects too seriously and have fun with the process. If you are struggling with painting trees and leaves, try using a stencil and creating some word art instead.

Good luck recreating these fall painting ideas, and happy crafting!
