So Very Thankful Fall Home Decor


Every year at this time of year I start to get in the holiday mood. It all starts in October with my 2 daughters' birthdays, then Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's all right in a row and it just gets me into the spirit of the holidays. I had this fun project up on the Little Yellow Bicycle blog yesterday and I wanted to show you a fun way to make this fun holiday wall decor. 
Supplies: AH-279: Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow Chipboard Shapes, AH-135: Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow Favorite Pieces Cardstock Stickers, AH-305: Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow Paper Crafting Kit, May Arts Ribbon & Burlap, 10" Embroidery Hoop from local craft store, Muslin from local craft store

Creative How-to: This was so easy to make and I've received so many compliments on it already. I've included a supply list above but you will need embroidery hoop, muslin, mists, ribbon and Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow goodies. The first thing I did was measure and cut the muslin, leaving plenty around the edges so I could pull it taut. I then used spray mist to give it a little extra pizzazz. I added the burlap and ribbon and hooked the hoop together. This is where the real fun started.  


I used the area inside the hoop to create little scenes. I layered chipboard and sticker trees and the little fox at the bottom. Then I added the "SO VERY thankful" sentiment over the ribbon.


Next I added the chipboard "FALL" letters and the tree limb, placing the owl sticker over the limb. I topped it off with a little flowers/leaves medley from the paper crafting kit. Ideally you would use this inside the house since I used a lot of paper product but I am sure you could seal it to use it on your front door. Luckily, my front door is under a large covered patio so that's where you'll find mine.


I plan to switch out the insides for the different holidays. Thanks for stopping by today! Now make your way to the NEW ONLINE STORE from Little Yellow Bicycle. You can now order these great goodies from them.
