I started a bit of fall decorating in anticipation of those cooler days and the first little project I've gotten done is the transformation of my $5 Hobby Lobby "R".
That fuzzy brown stuff used to be moss. I left my poor moss initial in the sun too long and then stashed it in a closet so it was pretty sad looking and desperately in need of a make-over.
The best thing about this project is that I had all of the supplies on hand, so I spent zero dollars to remake my "R".
I used Elmer's Mounting spray at first and then switched to a spray adhesive for a stronger hold.
I had these leaves left over from last year. They're from Michael's.
As you can imagine, the process is really easy.
I sprayed the "R" with the mounting spray and I just laid the leaves out on the "R" the way that wanted them. I positioned them so that they overlapped. Once I got them all laid out, I sprayed the backs of the leaves with a more permanent adhesive spray.
I'm still not quite sure what I'm going to do with it. Right now it's hanging on an old window over a bookcase in our living room, but I may attach it to a wreath...we'll see.
Any fall decorating in the near future for you!?
