I wanted something to put out on the entertainment center for the few weeks BEFORE I broke out the Halloween decorations - and then it'll go back up for a few weeks after Halloween, before the Thanksgiving decorations go up! So this Fall framed decor is to fill those few awkward weeks between holidays!
I had this fun oval paper mache frame in my stash and I thought it would be fun to embellish with the Friendly Forest collection. I covered the front of the frame with woodgrain patterned paper - I love how Doodlebug even manages to make woodgrain look fun and whimsical!
I used several of the cute stickers from the "this & that" sticker sheet. The notebook paper made the perfect base for my little sticker collage. Isn't that raccoon the cutest? I put him (and his big acorn) on pop-dots for a bit of added dimension. I also added several of the epoxy "sprinkles shapes" to my collage, I just love the way they shine and pop off the background!
After I finished the picture, I felt like I wanted to add some color to the frame, so I made this little leaf banner with doodle-pops, twine, and mini clothespins!
So...do YOU decorate for fall, or do you head straight for the Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations?
