Decorate To Celebrate - Fall Part 1

Happy Wednesday!!!

Can you believe that it is September?!?!

I LOVE that it is!!!

I absolutely love Fall and all that it brings -
beautiful colors, cooler temps, and football!!!

we want to see how you decorate for Fall.
This is the 1st of a 2 part Fall Challenge, because if
you are like me, you will have plenty of fun new decorations
to show off for the season!

Here is my first fall project of the year...

I painted some 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" blocks with some brown acrylic paint,
then cut out some fun fall pattern paper and adhered it with Mod Podge.

I then cut out the letters and acorns from Art Philosophy and used
my Zig 2 Way glue pen to adhere them on.

I added a top coat of Mod Podge over each block
to seal everything down.

Then I tied up some raffia and wallah - a fun new decor piece.

So super simple!

I hope that you will show off your Fall decor with us over at

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
