2023 Fall Inspired Tree

Do you love the feel of getting your Christmas tree put up for the first time during the holiday season and the cozy, warm feeling it brings to your home? Me, too! That’s why I decided to keep my tree up year round and decorate it for each season/holiday! It truly makes me happy every time I look at it!

This is my blank canvas that I started with for my Fall tree. After I took my decorations off from the last holiday I decided to leave the burlap on for my Fall tree. This is just regular rolled burlap that you can find at Hobby Lobby or any craft store. I simply started at the top of the tree and weaved the burlap in, securing it with the branches every 8-10 inches.

Next, I like to lay out all of my picks, signs, and ornaments I plan to use on my tree. All of the items below that I am using came from my shop except for the leaf picks on the top left(Walmart) and the gold and maroon leaves (Hobby Lobby).

I always like to start with my picks and fill in any holes or bare spots on the tree. I found these picks at Walmart and they worked perfectly for this. I simply stuck them in a hole and then spread out the different stems using the branches to secure where needed. One of the perks of using an artificial tree is not only being to keep it up year round, but also to be able to use the flexible branches to help you secure your decorations!

Next, I took my sunflower bush picks and stuck one on each side of the top of the tree.

I had this “give thanks” topper in my shop and instantly knew it would be the perfect topper for my tree! Again, I used the branches to help secure this to the tree.

I then continued filling my tree in with my remaining picks. Basically, whatever I did to one side of the tree, I did to the other side.

How gorgeous are these pumpkin picks!? I love the color of them!

Ok guys, you have to check out this tree decorating hack! How cute is this little bow I made using corn husks? SEE THE VIDEO HERE!

Next, I used raffia and a branch to tie a cute bow under my topper. I found this mustard colored raffia at Hobby Lobby.

I then filled in the rest of my tree with ornaments and signs to finish it off! I am so happy with how it turned out! Will you be decorating a Fall tree this year?

Of course I had through some pumpkins and candy corn under the tree to top it off! So adorable! You can find the video for the teal pumpkin that is under the tree HERE!

DIY Fall Sign

You will need:

*Surface of choice- click here for the link for the one I used from Chalk Couture

*Waverly “pink sky” chalk paint

*painter’s tape

*ribbon, raffia, or any embellishments you want to use

*Glue gun-click here for my affiliate link for one like the one I use

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?

Thankful Wood Bead Hanging Sign

You will need:

*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.

Reverse Canvas Pumpkin

You will need:

*Round canvas of any size

*Mod podge

*Waverly “moss” colored paint

*Scrapbook paper-mine is from Hobby Lobby

*Scissors/utility knife

*Stick for the stem

*Glue gun-click here for my affiliate link for the one I use on my lives!

*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.

Barn Wood Pumpkin Decor

You will need:

*Barn wood or surface of choice

*Popsicle sticks

*Orange paint

*Lace or Doily

*Mod podge

*Stick for the stem of the pumpkin

*Ribbon if a bow is desired

The first thing I did was get four pieces of barnwood cut to the same size. Next, I used large popsicle sticks to glue the boards together as shown below.

Once I had my pieces of wood secured, I roughly painted the shape of my doily with orange paint. This way the orange would show through once I glued my doily on top.

I used mod podge to secure my doily down once my orange paint was dry.

Next, I used a chuck of stick for the stem on my pumpkin.

To finish off my pumpkin, I added a cute crisscross bow!

If desired, you could add a piece of jute twine for a hanger. I am using my as shelf sitter/leaner. So cute!
