Fall Decorating

Hi and thanks for stopping by! You can definitely feel fall in the air here in San Diego. I got all my Fall decorations down this weekend and have been having fun doing a little holiday decorating. All the decorating got me in the mood to make something new! 


I decide to play along with this week's "Fall Floral" Challenge over the the Shabby Tea Room. This is the inspiration photo and we are further challenged to use fall flowers. 


And here is the project I come up with!

I started with an 8 x 8 Shadow Box Frame and a 8 x 8 stretched burlap that I had pick up at a craft store.

I the stamped image and the sentiment is from the Inspired by the Front Porch - Fall Stamp Set. It is colored with a combination of Copic Markers and Prism Colored Pencils. I added a lace doily behind the image and started adding flowers, sequins, and metal embellishment from my stash.


The flourish is cut with the Large Leafy Flourish Die-namics and the flowers with the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose and Sunflower Die-namics. The roses are cut from MFT Felt in Wild Cherry

I am pretty happy with how it turned out! It is already hanging on a wall. 

Here are the MFT products I used on my project:

  1. Very fun and will be a beautiful addition to your Fall decorating each year! I love the burlap canvas. I've been seeing this at craft stores around town too, but have yet to pick one up. I may just have to run to the store today, as you have inspired me to give one a try too! Thanks for playing along in The Shabby Tea room this week!
