Happy Fall

Happy fall everyone! Fall is my favorite season and I savor every minute of it. At about this time every year I start taking out my fall decorations and decorating for the season. And I am a sucker for fall decorations so I can always use more.

The "Tree Love" line is perfect for fall and adorable so I couldn't resist making just one more fall decoration to add to my collection.

I created this Happy Fall wall hanging with a wooden plaque I bought at Hobby Lobby for a $1.00. I painted the outer edges with dark brown paint and added two nails in the back. Then I wrapped 18 gauge craft wire around the nails to make my handle. I traced the plaque on the patterned paper to get the right fit for my background and sanded the edges. The beaver and tree were fussy cut from paper and then adhered with foam tape. A few letter stickers, buttons and punched leaves completed the project.


Using the "Tree Love" line made this wall hanging come together in no time. Everything coordinates so perfectly and looks great together so I didn't have to spend a lot of time matching things up. Plus the Beave is just tooooo cute!!

Products used: 12 x 12 paper from the Tree Love ling: "The Forest" patterned paper, "Tree Bark" patterned paper, "Be Green" patterned paper; Bucky's cut ups; Brown burlap buttons; cardstock sticker sheet
