One more project tonight. I was on a roll today finding projects to paint and re-purposing things from around my house. This one only cost me $.99 and that was for the fall font.
Silhouette fall font – purchased from Silhouette store for $.99. Re-designed the letters on my Silhouette Portrait machine and printed on brown contact paper. Yes. I have one of those, too. I make a lot of projects with my Silhouette machine. I love that thing!
Ribbon – from a stash I kept when making bows for my grand daughter, which she basically never wore. She hasn’t ever liked bows. But I saved the left overs. Remember, I’m a teacher. We don’t discard.
Chalkboard – you will recognize it from the project I made earlier today. Just erased one message and added a new one.
Pumpkin with air plant – bought that from a Vintage Market earlier this month. The other side is a jack-o-lantern!
Flowers – Stole those out of an ancient arrangement I had. I may need to re-arrange that one a little to disguise the holes I left.
Kerr Canning Jar – bought for Young Living Sugar Scrub. Yes, I like essential oils, too! I gave this jar two coats of off white chalk-based paint I had left over from other projects. It was a little thick, so just added a bit of water and it was fine. Then I sanded the jar a bit with 220 sandpaper and added the fall letters. I tied a ribbon around it, stuck in the flowers, made a vignette with my chalkboard, pumpkin and jar— and there you have it! A beautiful fall arrangement. Don’t you agree?
