I have high hopes that Fall will be hitting my part of the country soon. We’re still hitting triple digits each day, but our evenings are just barely making it to bearable.
So on the thoughts of Fall I decided to make a new Halloween craft. I had some scrap 2×8 that I white washed with watered down craft paint and made a festive Halloween design. Who doesn’t like a cute skeleton!
But there is a backside to the wood that is just a great as the front. Why leave it blank when I can just as easily make it a Christmas decoration? I love the Hymn “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” and decided to put part of that hymn on the back.
Happy Fall decorating!
I’ve seen similar projects floating around blogland and decided to try my hand at my own. Here’s what you need to make this project:
- 4 mismatching frames (mine were a mix of 3×5, 4×6 and 5×7 frames from the Dollartree)
- Spray paint (I used black)
- Die Cut letters (I used black vinyl)
- Scrapbook paper
- Any wanted embellishments
I started out by removing the backs and glass from all of the frames, getting them ready to be spray painted:
Then they got a couple of coats of black spray paint:
Next I picked my scrapbook papers and cut them to size. I used scraps that I had in Fall colors. I also cut my letters to spell “FALL”
After applying the letters I added some ribbon and buttons to jazz up the frames:
And the final product on my piano.
For now I have fall leaves as well as my “Jar Jack-o-Lanterns”
I could see making this same project spelling a variety of words like Winter and Spring. I think Love or Lucky would be cute too!
