How about all this crazy weather? I am sending out prayers to all those affected and yet to be affected by these horrible storms. I hope this post finds everyone safe and sound.
This week, I decorated this sweet little set of Fall leaves and an acorn, from Foundations Decor. Here is how:
Paint brush (disposable foam brush)
My supplies at the ready! I have all sorts. Fall theme papers, quotes and ephemera.
First, I glued the papers I chose, to the wood pieces. I did my layout first with the bare pieces to see how I wanted everything to sit. Since I wanted the words to be readable, this piece was glued at an angle so that when it was set into place, the lines of text are visible. I fussy cut around the edges of the piece with a craft knife. I laid the paper on the table, glued wood piece to it, waited for it to dry a bit, then cut.
Here are the remaining pieces, done the same way.
I painted generic veining on one of the leaves with green acrylic.
I glued the top of the acorn on to the acorn piece. Painted all the edges with coordinating acrylic paints, then I glued all pieces together in the order I liked at the beginning.
Added a cute "FALL" paper banner and all done!
Very simple, very quick! Love Foundations Décor pieces, they are so much fun to individualize!
See you next time!
