Now that it is September, have you pulled out your fall decorations? I haven’t quite yet. This is a post that I shared over at The Wood Connection a few weeks back, and I’m excited to share it here. These are a couple of the products from their Fall line of products, Stacking Leaves and Acorns. I love the fall season, and I’m excited it is getting close. I love the crispness in the air and all of the fall colors.
I started by tracing all of the different pieces of the acorns, onto the paper that I wanted. Then I cut the paper out. I chose a couple of coordinating paint colors for the sides, and painted the wood then using wood glue, I glued the paper down, tied the ribbon and leaf on, and I was finished.
I am totally in love with these fall stacking leaves! They are the perfect shape and they were fun to finish, although somewhat time consuming, because of all the detail on them. To finish these, I traced my leaves onto the paper, and then cut the paper out. Then I painted the edges of the leaves. Once the paint was dry, I used wood glue to adhere the paper to the wood, then I distressed the edges of the leaves.
Once I had the leaves looking like I wanted the, I used some Rustic Twisted Wire to wrap around my leaves, then I added a small piece of ribbon.
I really adore the way both of these projects turned out! I can’t wait to pull out all the rest of my fall decorations, and for it to change to fall outside as well.
Do you have your fall decorations out yet, or are you waiting a little longer.
