Home Decor - Autumnal Sign

Let's Get Ready for Autumn
and make a cute sign to decorate your home.  I re-purposed a Dollar Store Halloween sign which I bought in an after holiday clearance sale and gave it new life with Robin's Nest Papers & Dew Drops.

The Robin's Nest Supplies


 1.  Stamp and emboss the leaf vine wreath onto white cardstock. Use a 1" circle punch to trim the corners.

 2. Matte the embossed image with Green cardstock and trim the corners.

3.Stamp and emboss a heart with gold glitter embossing powder. Carefully, trim and adhere to center of the wreath.  Apply Glossy Accents to the heart and set aside to dry.

 4. Adhere a scattering of Goldenberry Dew Drops to the vine wreath.

 5. Fussy cut some flourishes from Leaf Glitter Cardstock.

6.  Remove hanging wire from the sign.  Adhere the reverse side of Red Snowflake Cardstock onto the sign. Trim any excess overhanging paper.  Matte Leaf Glitter Cardstock with gold glitter cardstock and adhere.

7. Turn the sign over so you can see the holes in the sign that are for the wire.  Next, use a pin or toothpick to pierce the patterned cardstock so that the wire can be restrung.

8  Adhere the embossed image and fussy cut flourishes.  Lastly, reattach the wire hanger.

TIP: Buy after holiday clearance decor and re-imagine it to suit your taste.  A cheap hanging sign with a cute beaded wire hanger was used as the base to create my new autumn decor.  A discount dollar store Halloween sign was transformed by simply covering their design.
