Stenciling Fall Leaves in the Colors of Autumn

Stenciling Fall Leaves in the Colors of Autumn

Like most people, I adore the colors of fall leaves. But even more specifically, I love leaves that are “mid-change”. The ones that showcase a gradient of colors in green, yellow, orange, and red. So, I decided that I really wanted to try to capture those colors of autumn by stenciling some fall leaves on a cabinet door in my stash.Read more ›

Pumpkin Decor and Cake Dome from a Wooden Bowl

Even though I am busy-busy-busy working on projects for my book, I couldn’t let the season go by without making at least one pumpkin project! And for this one, I went “garage shopping” – and came across this set of wooden bowls. I set aside the smaller ones for my book, and decided that the big fella should become a pumpkin…and cake dome.Read more ›

Fall Apples and Apple Decor from Monkey Pod Wood

Fall Apples and Apple Decor from Monkey Pod Wood

Even though I had already upcycled some monkey pod wood once before, I decided that thrifting fate was telling me to do it again. You see, I came across these bowls twice over the course of a few weeks. And, well – that’s a rarity for most thrift store “smalls”! After I saw them the second time, I decided they kind of looked like Fall apples – or rather, they could look like apple decor. So, in the cart they went.Read more ›

Acorn Decor by Upcycling a Men’s Tweed Jacket

Acorn Decor by Upcycling a Men’s Tweed Jacket

While putting together a collection of Upcycled Fall Decor projects for a blog post, I ran across this oversized acorn decor project that I just fell in love with. It’s not my originally idea (important for me to point out), BUT I wanted to create my own version of these acorn decor. Of course, just just any fabric would do, though. I wanted to make them with a tweed coat or men’s tweed jacket.Read more ›

Pumpkin Sign / Pumpkin Patch Sign and Primitive Country Decor for Fall

Pumpkin Sign / Pumpkin Patch Sign and Primitive Country Decor for Fall

I’ll be honest with you – paper plate holders were not something I grew up with. Paper plates, yes, but designated wooden holders for them? Nope, not at all. There wasn’t much primitive country decor in my childhood home, so that’s probably why. Fast forward to my days as an upcycling blogger, though, and I couldn’t snap this one up fast enough! Because I had an upcycling idea to transform it into a pumpkin sign or pumpkin patch sign for Fall.Read more ›

Decorative Books for Koselig / Hyggelig with Flannel Fabric

I think it’s high time I create another flannel project, don’t you? The weather is finally feeling like Fall and I am craving all the cozy plaid…and today’s project also has a special twist. All of my project materials came from thrift stores that benefit an animal-based charity!

Decorative Pumpkins from Monkey Pod Wood

Decorative Pumpkins from Monkey Pod Wood

Funny, but true, story about this project- it all started out when I found this apple-shaped wooden tray at the thrift store. It was May…Spring was on my mind…so I told myself I’d make a cute apple project in the Fall. I see Monkey Pod Wood all the time but never know what to do with them – but this one was just too cute a shape to pass up.

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop, and I have been dying to try it out. I decided to create some Buffalo check decor on a wood tray from the thrift store using her stencil. I thought it would be lovely as rustic cabin decor to use for my autumn decorating!Read more ›

Alcohol Ink Painting on Glass Pumpkins for Fall Home Decor

Alcohol Ink Painting on Glass Pumpkins for Fall Home Decor

Every now and then, I choose to work on a project based on a crafting technique, as opposed to a really unique upcycling idea. And this, my friends, is one of those projects! You see, I’d been looking for a way to try out alcohol ink or alcohol paint paints for a long time. And I decided that creating alcohol ink art with glass pumpkins (or other round glass) would be fun for Fall home decor.Read more ›
