You all know I love fall. I also love a good freebie. There are a number of ways you can get a super cute fall print on the cheap…for free, even! Here are a few fun fall decor items you can print, frame or even make yourself that you will love!
1. Magazine photo framed
If you’re like me, you subscribe to tons of magazines. Sometimes the fall editions have pictures of gorgeous fall scenes in them. Number one is just a pretty picture I cut out of a Country Living magazine and stuck in a frame I already had.
2. Google images search
All three of these super cute printables came from doing a Google images search. The print that says “we gather together” and “give thanks” both were found at On Sutton Place and the Apple wreath print was found here.
Number three, the subway art printable, was created by Make Bake Celebrate, and I found it by searching fall art printables on Pinterest. I already had the frame.
4. Hang a trio of prints/ use fall colored paper to mat
I have had these printable cards for a long time, and try as I may, I cannot find the original source. If anyone recognizes them, please email me so I can appropriately credit the maker. I love these pretty little fall prints with their cheery colored mats. They make me smile everytime I see them.
I knew I needed a new wreath for my back door, so I decided to buy an oval grapevine wreath.
I also grabbed some ribbon from my craft cabinet and got to work. I simply cut the stems from the flowers, put the flowers into the wreath and arranged them as I liked. I then added a little hot glue to the backs of the blooms and tied a bow from my ribbon. I attached this to the top.
I was satisfied with the wreath when I finished it. And if you’re wondering how realistic the flowers are?
This sweet butterfly was surprised, too!
This wreath was easy and fun to make. Have you made any wreaths lately?
I love grain sacks so much. I have two of them in our dining room.
I had an awkward space in our hall and wanted another grain sack to occupy the space… except I couldn’t find what I wanted. As usual, when faced with high costs or low availability, I decided to create my own.
Have you ever been to The Graphics Fairy.com? That website is an amazing treasure trove of vintage graphics and art. I’ve used it many times to decorate my home. When I visited in search of wheat/grain graphics, I found this:
I love the show Fixer Upper. I also love the super cute decor that Joanna uses to stage their homes. Have you seen the Magnolia Market website? There are so many things that I want, but I do not have a big enough bank account to buy them all.
This lovely sign is $70. I love it, but I cannot see paying that for this sign.
I did have a can of white paint, a board, and black paint.
I quickly painted my board white. I then created some letter stencils.
I traced the letters and then painted them in with black paint.
I then added hangers to the back.
I then hung the sign in my dining room. It’s not perfect but I love it! What do you all think?
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This time of year is always a busy one for teachers, so I never seem to post as many blog posts as I’d like. Today, I’d like to share some super cute farmhouse projects with you all.
You can make this one with just a stencil, some scrap wood, some paint and some wood stain. You can even freehand it if you’re more artistically talented than I am. There are so many things I want to put on a sign like this one! I can’t wait to make a few more.
I made this box from some mis-measured wood pieces from another project, and some walnut wood stain. I have used this box for Christmas, for spring, for fall, and for winter. It’s so much fun to decorate with!
