Antique Window Fall Decor

It is still really hot here but Fall is trying to come.  So I am encouraging it with an update to my antique window decor and getting it ready for fall.

I bought the leaves in little packages of multiple leaves for .99 at Michaels.  I then simply "sewed" them together.  I took a needle and thread and ran the string through the top and bottom of the leaf and then took it to the next leaf.
I went through the top and bottom to help the leaf not twist the wrong direction.
I then just tapped the strings to the back of the window.

Fall Words
For the fall words, I used some blank wood tags and mod podged some scrapbook paper to each tag.
I used the tag as a template to cut the paper.

I used to my Silhouette to cut out the letters for fall.
I then poked a hole through the paper where the hole in the tags are with some scissors, I always poke from the front to the back so the extra paper sticks out the back.
Then I added one more layer on mod podge on top to give it a nice gloss.

Then I used some string and hung each letter, each string getting progressively longer, once again I just taped the strings to the back of the frame.

And for one final touch, I added a little garland of leaves, that I got at the dollar store to the bottom corner of the frame

Which nicely completed my- please come fall weather- antique window decor

Have you decorated for the fall yet?

    Come Say HI

  2. It looks great, Emmy! I like the little hanging tags and the leaves. Still looks great with the B&W photos on each side, too! Your antique window is still my favorite of all the crafts you've done and it's so versatile!

    I haven't decorated for fall ever. We don't really get a fall here, so it would feel a little strange to decorate for it. :o/ We always seem to go straight from summer into winter.

  3. What a wonderful fall decoration! I lice the hanging words.

  4. I have been thinking (not doing) about making that grateful frame. And no, I have not decorated yet. And what am listening to right now...Christmas music! It just felt right. LOL.

    I love your versatile window.

  5. I love fall decorations! I have started decorating for fall but not quite done. I went to hobby lobby and got cardboard letters and modge podge some cute fall scrap paper on them. I'll have a picture posted tomorrow.

  6. So love this. I want an old window like this, I just haven't found one yet.

  8. Adorable! It feels like Fall here... you can have it :)

  9. No I have not...but I seriously need to! Love yours...gotta get moving on mine!

  10. It looks great, especially surrounded by those gorgeous faces.

  11. That is such a cool idea! Will you make me one?

  12. I'm going to have to search your blog for the antique window origin. I've never seen that before! That looks great, I still haven't even hung up the pictures in the new house yet. I'm nervous, what if I never get the hang of decorating for the holidays? (I can do the Christmas tree, lol I've figured that part out.

  13. It is all so perfect. I also love the hand prints in the corner. Too sweet.

  14. Love it! So, I'm definitely getting out my fall stuff today! Storage closet here I come :)

  15. Super cute. We don't really have seasonal decorations...just Halloween stuff and Christmas stuff. That's all we really do.

  16. You are inspiring me to decorate because I haven't done it yet. I love your ideas and so smart to sew the leaves.

  17. What a cute idea. I love the little fingerprints. I'm a new follower from 504 Main. I hope you stop by and say "Hi"...

  18. Oh I love it! And no … I haven't decorated for fall yet. I don't know when I will get around to it either!
