- Hobby Lobby Frame
- Hobby Lobby Clearance Welcome Sign ( found with 90% off spring)
- Hobby lobby placemats
- Nautical Twine
- Fall picks
- Ribbon of your choice
- Black Chalk paint
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Sanding block and sand paper ( You can find the sanding block I use here on my affiliate link- HERE)
Paint your frame to the desired color. I chose black chalk paint and lightened it some with white paint. Once the frame is painted allow to dry completely.
My original plan was to leave the frame as is. While painting I forgot about the plan and got some black paint on the frame. I decided just to go with it! So I added a small amount of black paint all around the frame and allowed it to dry. Once dry, I took my sanding block over it to give it a light appearance than the center of the frame.
Once the frame was finished I sat it aside and began to work on the welcome sign. This blue sparkly welcome sign was 90% off at hobby lobby and the perfect fit for my frame. I sanded the glitter off and then painted the sign with the color Toasted Terra Cotta by Folk Art.
Once the welcome sign was painted and dried, I decided to add some antique wax. Adding the antique wax to your projects will help to give them a more rustic, wood grain look. Simply dip your brush into the wax, off load some onto a paper towel and brush onto your projects. Chip brushes work best for this technique.
This next part is a little tricky and I wasn’t able to get a good photo of it. You Want to lay your placemats where you want them to resemble a pumpkin and then run your scissors along the bottom of the frame to cut them. Once they are cut you don’t want to touch them any more than you have to or the pieces will come a part. I just pressed down on the part where I cut then folded the tops over and started gluing. This way I didn’t have to really move the bottoms and they stayed in place pretty good! Once I was done I ran bead of glue at the bottom under the cut placemats and gently tucked them into the frame . You may want finger protectors for this part so you don’t burn yourself!
Take two pieces of nautical rope and twist them together for the stem. Glue the top to secure and then run your heat gun over the top where you glued. This will melt the glue and make it blend a little more. I also frayed the bottom of the rope to make the stem even more life-like.
Once everything is glued in place you can start to put this gorgeous fall sign together. I used some E-6000 and hot glue to glue the sign to the center of the frame. I then added two fall picks and some ribbon to the top of my pumpkin.
