I’ve been having so much fun decorating for Fall. Here are a few DIY projects that I worked on for the season.
DIY Fall Sign
To be totally honest I really didn’t have any direction for this project. Derek had some extra wood and I wanted to make a rustic looking sign…that’s it! At one point I actually thought this would end up in the trash but the result surprised me!
Before the paint…two boring pieces of wood!
I found this random can of paint in our basement. It belonged to the people that lived here before us and I have no idea how long it has been sitting! So I mixed some Martha Stewart Craft Paint with this 100 year old random can of paint in an empty formula container. Like I said – no direction!
I wasn’t satisfied with this so I decided to keep painting and mixing different colors.
I added ASCP in cream to lighten up the sign and dark wax for some dimension.
The finished product! One thing I should have done – measure out the letters instead of eyeballing them. All in all I’m pretty happy with it.
Pumpkin Bell Jars
I was bored with my apothecary jars so I switched up the glassware on my console table to bell jars from Michael’s. I also used a birch tree stump and moss from Michael’s to fill the jars.
I can never get enough of a good stamp! These canvas tags were the perfect finishing touch.
Floating Candles for Fall
If you saw the post that I wrote for Blake’s Baptism you’ll see that I reused the cylinders and stumps for this project. I used some dried wheat and fall berries to stick in the wreath. The leaf can be found in the scrapbooking aisle in Michael’s. I used a hole punch and some twine to tie it to the glass.
