momcrafts

What inspires you and your DIY projects?

I'm amazed at how the simplest of things—like the walk I had with my girls last week—can inspire me. We kept finding such beautiful leaves in all different colors. My girls wanted to bring them home, so I thought, "Why not hang up these beautiful finding to celebrate fall?"

I broke out my new Silhouette SD (click here for a chance to win one)! Have you tried one of these babies? What an amazing machine! Installing it was cake and after checking out the tutorial on their website,using it for vinyl cutting was easy as pie. Here's a quick tutorial for you.

Craft Supplies You'll Need

  • 3 sheets of cute scrapbook paper
  • 3 wood frames
  • 3 acrylic paint colors of your choice
  • Vinyl (for lettering)
  • Pretty ribbon in fall colors
  • Leaves you've pressed for a few days
  • Staple gun

Not pictured:

  • Double-sided tape
  • Laminator
  • Scissors
  • Sponge brushes

Steps to Create the Fall Art Frame

1. Cut scrapbook paper to shape of frames Match leaves to your favorite background and attach it with double sided tape.
2. Laminate your leaves and trim lamination to fit your picture frames.
3. Paint each of your frames and let it dry.  This is a good time to decide which background will go with each frame.
4. This is where the Silhouette came in!  I just chose what I wanted to write on my frames and what font I wanted to use.  Place your vinyl on the tray and that's it!  The Silhouette did the rest!  Carefully remove the letters from the tray and place them on your frame however you want.
Don't they look awesome?
5. Turn your frames upside down, measure the distance you'd like to leave in between each frame, and pull out your ribbon.
6. Make sure to staple at the top and bottom of each frame so it will hang nicely.
There you have it! A beautiful fall project, perfect to display in your home or to use as a gift!
