DIY pumpkin stencils materials

2. Using a pattern (I made mine from a piece of paper), freehand or by tracing shapes; create stickers. 

3. Cut out stencils. I folded a few of mine to create more.

4. Remove wax paper backing and apply your DIY FrogTape stencils to the clean, dry surface of a pumpkin.

5. Use your thumbnail to burnish the edges of the tape and to smooth out creases.

6. Tape off stem if desired. Spray paint pumpkin.

7. Paint dried really fast for me since I just did a light coat with some of the pumpkin showing through in most places. After just a few minutes, remove stickers/stencils.

Fall Home Tour {Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours: Fall 2014 Edition}

DIYShowoff Fall Home Tour

Hello friends! It’s time for LOTS of gorgeous fall inspired home tours organized by the creative Lindsay from White Buffalo Styling Company. Woo!

Found your way here from Ashley’s stunning fall decorating at The Handmade Home? Welcome! It’s lovely to meet you and I’m so glad you’re here!

the handmade home

Okay…I really had planned on more fall decorating than I’ve actually completed but with a big 5-0 birthday celebration in Cancun with my love (ahhh…summer ALL the time there!) and a last minute overnight class trip this week, it’s not the grand fall festival reveal I had planned. I know. Boo. I’m running behind schedule. It will evolve as it unfolds over the next couple of weeks in preparation for the rustic woodland themed {October} baby shower planning in the works. (Stay tuned!) But let’s get this show on the road…

DIY Fall Door/Wall Decor Craft

Fall is in the air! The upcoming baby shower theme will be “woodland”. Perfect for the fall season, don’t you think? So I made up a few of these twig leaf door or wall decor crafts for prizes. And just in time to participate in the Autumn Abound Fall Blog Hop (more on that below)!

autum DIY decor - diyshowoff.com

Materials:

  • Twig/stick leaf form from the craft store (you could even make your own) or grapevine wreathes, etc. 
  • Fall floral pics including faux acorns, wheat, leaves, feathers 
  • Hot glue 
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Twine 
  • Twist tie or floral wire

Tools: wire cutters, scissors, hot glue gun

Time: approx. 10 minutes

What I did:

Simply assemble in layers and secure each embellishment with hot glue.  DIY Fall Decor Craft at diyshowoff.com

Cut a 36″ piece of burlap. Fold and snip the ends. Lay flat and overlap ends. Tie a knot/bow using twine to gather and finish the burlap bow. Secure to arrangement using hot glue.

Use a twist tie to assist with hanging. 

I think that was the easiest tutorial ever! If I can do it, so can you!

They’d look great used as a centerpiece too. Or hang the opposite direction…
