Hello, Petaloo fans! Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. The crisp clear air, the crunch of falling leaves underfoot, gorgeous fall asters, crystal clear blue skies and cooler temps are such a welcome relief after the long, hot summer. I’m always inspired to decorate for fall, how about you? Autumn decor and vintage style seem to go hand in hand, Especially when you toss in some upcycled product packaging and hand dyed flowers. This Thankful Fall Wall Hanging portrays all the things I love about fall.
Authentique’s Harvest collection is so completely gorgeous when combined with Petaloo DIY Flowers, burlap ribbon, a Canvas Corp Brands banner base, crocheted lace, a Graphic 45 Antique Metal Door Pull, ribbon and twine.
These small burlap sunflowers were painted and sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. (Jack-o-Lantern, Peach Delight, Olive Vine, Bronze). The natural ivory color gives you a good vintage base to being with. Just add inks or mists and you can customize your flowers to match your papers.
Graphic 45 product packaging has such a lovely shape that I can never bear to throw one away. This one was sanded, spritzed, embossed and inked to create a lovely metallic looking layer for my images. I also aged the drawer pull with Ranger Vintaj inks in Patina, Moss, and Jade.
Have you started decorating for fall yet? Mother Nature always dresses up in her autumn finery, and I like to bring some of that beauty into my home. I hope this Thankful Fall Wall Hanging inspired you to welcome this gracious season to your home.
Thanks for stopping by! Keep calm, and craft on!
