I've got another installment of "Sarah's Fanatical Fall Craft Frenzy" here for you today! (Okay, that was corny, but I just can't help it.)
Here's another hand painted banner that was super quick and easy to make.
For a little more charm I added some tassles of ribbon, yarn, lace and string to each side of the word.
For this wreath I followed a tutorial given by Emily at Jones Design Company. Her ruffles seem fuller than mine, though. Hm. I may have to give this one another try.
Then came the fun part- embellishing! I looked through my stash of scraps and do-dads to see what I could find and had a really good time putting together 3 little rosettes using different materials.
Here's a closer look at each one. This one is made from cotton crochet trim purchased at Joann, a cotton yo-yo, a mother of pearl button and some burlap string.
Next we have a burlap base with some scrap lace and a wool felt center.
This one has a base cut from a felted wool sweater, some lace trim and a cashmere rose and burlap string in the middle.
Maybe it's not very fall-ish, but it looks kind of romantic and I like all the natural colors and textures on it.
Finally, this was an idea I'd seen on Betz White's blog a while back and finally got around to making a couple.
The doily and spider (2 pack) came from the Dollar Tree and the hoop is something I always seem to have around. I just need to pick up some black ribbon for hanging.
Cute and creepy!
