For this project I simply gathered a few ribbons that matched the color pallet I am using for Fall this year along with some raffia. Use whatever you have laying around and I can guarantee it will turn out just as cute!
The first thing I did was use painter’s tape to tape off my frame. I then used my “pink sky” waverly chalk paint and painted the inside of the frame. I did two coats.
Next, I layered my mustard colored ribbon on top of some burlap to create the “F”. Both of these ribbons came from Hobby Lobby.
For the “A”, I used this cute button ribbon trim that is also from Hobby Lobby.
For the first “L” I did the same thing that I did for the “F” layering a navy ribbon on top of the burlap. For the second “L” I used raffia. I love the look of this!
As if this isn’t already cute just the way it is…but you know me! Bow time!
I used this cute pick that I found at Hobby Lobby along with a cute lace bow that I tied up and added it to the top of the frame. To finish it off I added a little navy button. What do you think?
For those of you who don’t have a Hobby Lobby close or are unable to get out and about I like to share what Hobby Lobby has available for Fall goodies each year! It’s always fun to see the new colors/patterns each season.
It’s always fun to see the different vignettes they have styled around the store.

Cuteness overload, right? What colors will you be using to decorate your home for Fall this year?
*unfinished round wood bead hanger-mine is from Hobby Lobby
*Waverly “moss” paint-
*DIY Antique Wax-any wax will work
*burlap-mine is from Hobby Lobby
*thankful tag-comes in a pack of three from Hobby Lobby
*Apple Barrel “antique white” paint
*Fall colored raffia-Hobby Lobby
The first thing I did was paint the round part with my “moss” colored paint.
I then took a wipe and dipped it in my DIY wax and lightly rubbed that over the part I had just painted.
Next, I took a piece of rust colored burlap and cut the wired edges off to give it the frayed look on the edges. I then glued that down followed by the thankful tag on top of that.
I decided I didn’t want to leave the wood beads the natural colored but also didn’t want them to be too bold so I settled on “antique white” for them. I just put a small dab on a wipe and wiped around the beads to give them just a little bit of color.
And of course to finish this cuteness off I had a simply raffia bow using some Fall colored raffia I found at Hobby Lobby.
I then lightly went over the rest of the sign with this same wipe to give it a little more color and dimension.
*Raffian/ribbon for bow-mine are both from Hobby Lobby
If you have never made a reverse canvas before, your going to love them! The first step to any reverse canvas project is to remove the canvas from the frame. I like to use a utility knife for this. Simply cut on the outside of the staples and remove the canvas. We will trim it up later!
Next, I took my moss colored paint and painted the round frame.
While that dried, I then cut the excess canvas off so I had a perfect circle,
I then mod podged my scrapbook paper onto the canvas circle that I had just cut out and then cut off the excess scrapbook paper.
Now it’s time to reassemble our canvas.
Flip over the painted frame and put hot glue all around the back of the frame and then stick your canvas/scrapbook paper circle face down on top of this.
Tada! How cute is this already?!
Now, to finish off this cute little pumpkin, I added a stick for the stem and of course a bow!
Take your desired ribbon and crisscross your pieces. I found this Fall colored raffia at Hobby Lobby so I added some of that on top as well. I then took another piece of raffia and laid it across the middle of my bow, flipped it over and tied it in the back to complete my bow.
The first step is to paint your pumpkin orange and your stem with the khaki color.
Once that is dry, you will then brush on a coat of mod podge. You can also use Elmer’s glue for this step if you don’t mod podge on hand.
Once that is dry it is now time to paint the pumpkin with the Waverly “moss” color.
As this starts to dry, it will begin to crackle. Once dried completely I also ran my sanding block over it to expose a little more of the orange color underneath.
Next, I took a strip of this rust colored burlap and cut it to fit across the center of the pumpkin. I found this at Hobby Lobby in the Fall section.
I used mod podge to glue this down and then added the “blessed” word on top. This pack of words also came from Hobby Lobby.
Now to finish the project off, I made a bow using a Fall ribbon I had on hand from Michael’s and some orange deco mesh from Dollar Tree. I simply crisscrossed the ribbon and mesh and tied in the center with a piece of jute twine.
So, what do you think? Pretty stinkin’ cute if you ask me! Be sure to share a picture if you give this project a try!
