But, I'll be honest, I'm so slow that by the time fall comes around I probably wouldn't be done with my fall craft projects. Plus, I've been seeing so many awesome fall DIY projects, that I had to start. Fall is my fave.
So, bare with me as I unveil my first fall project! I had a ton of inspiration:
I decided to start my fall projects with the middle "FALL" decor. I love Shanty 2 Chic and have done a few of the projects, so I knew I couldn't go wrong with this one.
I started off in Michaels to find some letters, twine (which I already had), burlap flowers and burnt orange paint.
I started with painting the letters white instead of black, and then added some Annie Sloan dark wax to give them an aged look.
After much thought I decided to return the frames I bought at Michaels and went to Lowes to get some scrap wood. I liked the look way better!
Middle: Wood glued together ready for paint.
Bottom: One coat of Burnt Orange paint. In the tutorial they had stained their wood, but I liked the look of the distressed/aged orange for fall.
Top Right: Used more dark wax to give it an aged look.
Bottom Left: Added the twine and burlap flower.
Bottom Right: Hot glued the letter to the wood.
Repeat 3x more....and DONE! I did this project in 1 day. SUPER easy and really cute for this fall. Total cost was around $20!

I can't wait to put it up once fall rolls around. I'll be doing a few more fall DIY decor. Did I mention I love fall? Do you guys have any projects your working on or have in mind? I'd love some inspiration! Check out my page for another project I worked on this weekend.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! :)
