Happy Fall, ‘yall! Heather Leopard is here for fall traditions week. I thought I’d focus on decorating the house to get it started. While our leaves may not change colors until closer to Winter, we do enjoy changing the scenery and pumpkin spicing everything indoors.
I started this project thinking I’d make a DIY Fall Home Decor banner but as I was on my last step (and searching for jute), I ran across this tin sign I had in my stash. Changed things up and decided to give the banner a bit of a twist.
Step 1: Gather your DIY fall home decor supplies
All you need are 4 – 6 coordinating patterned papers, a few coordinating embellishments, a die cut machine (manual or electronic), tape runner, jute or a sign holder.
Step 2: Let’s get started
Cut your banners approx. 3 3/4″ w x 5 3/4″ h. I chose to use 4 different patterned papers but you could get away 1 or 2. Your project = your choice 🙂 *Set them aside.
*I do this step first so that I know how large to make my alphas based on how large I want my banner.
Cut your alphas. I created a lighter outline of each letter (2 1/4″ w x 3″h) and then cut each letter slightly smaller in contrasting paper (1 3/4″ w x 2 3/4″h) so that the letter would stand out more.
Step 3: Put it all together
Now it’s time to assemble everything. Using your banners as the base, lay your letters on top and select a few embellishments to add to it. I selected a mix of dimensional and non-dimensional embellishments. Once you like what you see, commit by adhering it all in place.
Option A or B…which will you choose?
This is where you choose whether to make a banner or add it to a frame other other cute sign.
While I had every intention of making a DIY Fall Home Decor banner for my mantle or foyer, I decided at the very last minute to do something completely different. Luckily it all fit and I love how it turned out! I guess you should probably make this decision early on in the process so you can make sure it’s the right size.
