Simple Fall Decor – Change your decor for fall in an easy, simple, but beautiful way!
Several years ago when my husband and I bought our first house, I thought it would be fun to frame a leaf from each of the trees we planted in our new yard. My mom saw them and asked if I would make a set of frames with leaves in them for her. I thought I would share them with you, since they are such an easy way to create some simple fall decor.
I bought these awesome wood frames at the dollar store. They didn’t have glass or backs, just the frame, so I also bought some ugly frames at the dollar store to steal the glass and backs out of. So altogether, that cost $8. I used leaves that I had found randomly and pressed because I thought they were pretty leaves. So those cost nothing.
The spool of ribbon was also from the dollar store, and I used several sheets of scrapbook paper (the paper I had on hand, but for the sake of a project estimate, we will give them a value of $2). Then I bought cabinet knobs to hang them from, for around $1 each.
And finally, I bought wood to metal double-ended screws in order to screw the cabinet knobs into the wall. Something similar to this, but it will depend on the size of the knob for what size screw you would need. So the project total was less than $20.
This was a simple project. Simply cut the paper to the size of the frame. Then put the leaf between the paper and the glass and put the back on. Using hot glue, glue the ribbon to the back of the frame.
Now pre-drill 4 holes smaller than the size of the screws at the places you want your pictures to hang. Take the screw that came with the knob out and replace it with the metal to wood screw, putting the flat (or machined) end into the knob, and screwing the pointy (or wood) end into the wall. Hang your pictures up, and ta-da! You have a fall-inspired wall!
