I hope your week is going well.
After so many months of being so busy with our home repairs, I finally have time again to spend time in my craft room. I have been enjoying sewing for my Etsy shop and also working on a couple of crafts that I am using as part of my Fall decor this year.
One of those crafts is a pretty Fall frame.
Weeks ago I came across this beautiful idea while browsing one of my favorite blogs.
Michelle at The Painted Hinge had put together a beautiful frame and used it as a wreath. Gorgeous!
I knew I wanted to make one of my own and after looking in my stash for the needed supplies, this is my version.
I had everything I needed, the only thing I bought was the chicken wire.
I had an old frame that I painted first dark brown and then gave it two coats of Americana Decor chalk finish paint.
The color is Linen and I distressed it a little when it was all dry.
This is the chicken wire I used from Hobby Lobby.
I used the 40% coupon so it only cost a little bit over $5.00 and I have enough chicken wire for at least
another three projects.
I had several of these square unfinished wood plaques and I painted four of them with chalkboard paint.
At the end, I decided to make the letters on the silhouette using white vinyl.
And to finish it off, I added to it a burlap bow and a few faux flowers I already had.
I knew I wanted to display it on our small hall table by the entrance to our kitchen and for that I used
a simple metal stand.
A couple of candles, a metal leaf tray with some orbs and a picture of our "pumpkin" :) that I keep there all the time, finished the table top.
On the mirror I added my old metal wreath from Kirklands.
And underneath I used the "home" pillow I bought months ago and an old basket.
What do you think? Is it a keeper?
Thank you again to Michelle for the inspiration to make this frame and for being so kind allowing me to use one of your pictures. You are so talented!
I have the kitchen almost decorated for Fall, I think, :), so I will share it with you all soon.
Meanwhile, have a wonderful week and thank you so much for your visit.
See you soon!
