The first crafty thing I have done in the revamped space, was to alter the Standing Wood Fall word that I bought from Hobby Lobby for 40% off. Each letter is approximately 7 inches high and 5 inches wide. I love how the "A" in fall was real,aced with a leaf.
The first thing I did is go through my 12 x 12 design paper and decide which paper I would use for which letter.
I painted the three letters with some Vanilla acrylic paint and the leaf with Metallic Bronze acrylic paint. I then added glue to the front of each letter and paid it down onto the design paper. Once the glue had dried, I used a Fiskars fingertip craft knife to cut around the letters. I then had to touch up the paint. I decided that the leaf was going to be too hard to cut around so I just painted it with three coats of paint. To finish off the three letters, I sponged on some Vintage Photo Distress Ink, to the edges of the design paper.
Here is the finished word, which I will be putting on my mantle, once I start decorating for fall.
Below is a list of the supplies I used.
Standing Wood Fall - Brother Sister Design Studio from Hobby Lobby
Acrylic Paint - Craft smart- Vanilla and Metallic Bronze from Michaels
Design Paper: American Crafts - Night Fall 12 x 12 paper pad
