Welcome Fall Wall Art Frame

Can you feel it? Fall is in the air, and I must admit I’m a little more than ready for this change of seasons!

Although, living here in Southern California we don’t actually “see” a whole lot of difference between summer and fall, so the change of seasons takes place in our home décor. It’s Mary Ann here today with a fun piece of home décor that will welcome friends and family as the leaves start to fall.

This could also be done by looking for a leaf shape online, printing the image outline, then cutting the leaf out with scissors. Next, I tore small pieces of five different fall colored papers from the Midday Medley 12×12 Paper and Vellum Pad and glued them randomly to the leaf shape. After the whole leaf was covered with the various papers, I turned the leaf over, and cut off any overlapping patterned papers.

DESIGNER TIP | Don’t like to sew? Use a marker to draw around the leaf instead of sewing to achieve a similar look

To finish it off, I added the scalloped shaped sticker that I backed with a scrap of cardstock, and the letter stickers from the Sticker Flair Kit along with the die-cut word welcome.
