I love decorating my home for Fall.
I just love this time of year!
This month, as part of the Michaels Makers team, we were asked to create something for Autumn. So I headed over to Michaels store for some inspiration. One of the first things I saw were these small metal letters in the new RAW section. I loved them. And I thought the metal would look great against the texture of burlap. So I picked up a canvas and some burlap from Michaels fabric section.
And as I was putting the project together, I decided that bringing a natural element would be pretty. So I took a branch from my backyard and attached it to the canvas. I used my Cricut Explorer machine to cut out leaves and I used my new American Craft Home+Made Paper for the leaves! I found the acorns on the trail I run on every day.
I hung the Fall Wall Art over the little banquet at the #1905Cottage. I think it’s so pretty with the gold polka dots.
Here’s the simple tutorial:
1. I wrapped the canvas with the burlap fabric. I used a staple gun to attach the fabric to the back of the canvas.
2. I glued the letters onto the canvas.
3. Then I glued the branch to the top of the canvas.
4, I used my Cricut Explorer machine to cut out leaves from my new Home+Made American Crafts paper line.
5. Then I glued the leaves onto the branch and glued the acorns too.
And here is some more inspiration from the other #MichaelsMakers members:
