For this week's EEK WEEKS project, I thought I would tone it down and make something natural that could be displayed in your home for the entire season.
I'm sorry I do not have a full photo tutorial, but this was super easy to make so I'll just talk you through it. :)
You will need three wood plaques, spray paint (I used brown), scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, craft foam brush, scissors, moss sheet, ribbon, and a hot glue gun. Optional supplies: distressing ink and jute.
To begin, spray the plaques with spray paint. While the paint is drying, cut out fall shapes from the moss sheet. Have you seen this stuff? I found it at the Dollar Tree, and I only used one sheet for this project!
I found images of a pumpkin, an acorn, and a leaf on Google images, printed them out, cut around the images, and used the cut outs as stencils to cut the moss sheet.
Measure the top of the wooden plaque and cut the scrapbook paper to fit, distress the edges of the paper with ink, and then Mod Podge the paper to the plaque.
Hot glue the moss to the plaque and embellish with jute (a curly vine for the pumpkin, a rim for the cap of the acorn, and veins for the leaf).
Hot glue ribbon to the back of the plaque and hang on a nail. I really wanted to hang the plaques from decorative knobs, but wanted to keep my budget in mind so I hot glued a button to the end of each nail. Personally, I think it is my favorite part of the project! :)
I'll be sharing this project at these super wonderful PARTIES!
I have to admit that I'm a little sad there is only one more EEK WEEK project left! I do promise that is will be positively pumpkiny deliciousness! :)
Coming up this week: Sutch an Inspiration on Tuesday, a giveaway on Wednesday, and a look at some of the fall decorations around my home on Friday. Have a wonderful week!
