Fall frames

The air is getting cooler here in Missouri and I’m thinking fall is coming! I created this table scape featuring frames and ceramic pumpkins to great my friends and family when they enter our home.

This is a fun and easy project featuring products and papers from GCD Studios and ordinary table top frames. Like most scrapbookers and avid photographers I have an abundance of frames, so I thought it would be fun to use them to help me spell out “fall” in a textural way.

I started by assembling my GCD Studios papers with fall colors, grabbed varying sizes of chipboard letters and got busy gluing.

I used Mod Podge for gluing each element to the chipboard letter.  It takes a while longer to dry, but no burned fingers or stringy leftovers, like from a glue gun.

Here are close ups of each letter frame.  For the “f” I used little bits from a fall foliage branch.

For the “A” I used leaves ripped from a faux leaf branch. I found that the cheaper, less glossy leaves accepted the glue best and would lay flat on the chipboard

For the first “L”, I used twigs I gathered from my friend’s backyard and trimmed them to fit the chipboard.

For the last letter, I wrapped jute around the chipboard.  This one was probably the most challenging.  The jute needed to be secured on both sides and I felt like I needed an extra hand. Where are those extra hands when we need them?

Here’s another look at all of them together on my entry table. It’s a great way to welcome fall as friends enter our home. I’ve also added pumpkins to the bottom of the table too.
Happy Fall!  I like this idea so much I’ll likely create another set for the Christmas Holidays.  Maybe spell out “noel”?

I’ve shared this with Inspired Room’s Fall Nesting Party.  Loads more great ideas if you want to join the party!
