Fall Leaves

I have been LOVING the fall weather.  The colored leaves always make me happy as I drive from one practice (soccer, football, dance, gymnastics...) to another in the afternoons.

My friend Iuliana from Hip2Thrift posted the prettiest pictures of fall on her blog yesterday and I was inspired to finish this craft.

 When I did my Spooky Halloween Sign I had done the ink transfer method in a chevron pattern to this board...
 I love the wood grain.  This board has been sitting around for a while.

Here is a little picture tutorial on how I did the ink transfer to the wood.
It seriously took me less than five minutes.

I couldn't decide if I just wanted the word fall in a fun color or three leaves in different colors...
I opted to do both.  I cut the word and leaves on my Cricut, then hot glued them to the board.  You will notice I just used some craft foam to make the leaves pop up just a little.
Oh and I almost forgot...
 I had gotten a cheapo plastic frame from Hobby Lobby.  It was too boring so I spray painted it a fun fall color.  I had the spray paint left over from my Halloween Spider Craft.

And there you have it!
I really wanted the leaves to be the focus.
I hope you are enjoying your fall weather!


I will be linking to these parties.
