Handmade Fall Decor

I got some awesome scrapbook paper from
my good friend, Hannah (a fellow crafter).
It was perfect for a Fall craft
to spice up my mantle.
First, I took 4 small wood plaques
and fall-themed paper.
Next, I used the sold colors to cover the front of the plaques
in alternating colors.
Then I used the floral paper to make the letters,
that spelled "fall."
The next step was to Mod Podge the back of the paper
onto the front of the wood plaques.
Then Mod Podge the letters onto the paper
in alternating colors.
Next, Mod Podge overtop of everything
and let dry for a few hours.

Finally, I got some cute fabric
and cut out basic flowers.
I hot glued the fabric flowers on top of one another
to give it dimension.
Then added a button for the center.

All done!


Sorry the pics aren't great,
but you get the idea.
Hope you like it!
Try it at home for this Fall season,
then stick it away for next year.

Enjoy!

Great idea! I think I might use some fall themed paper and do the word "Thanks" or something like that. Thanks for sharing :)
