Fall Frames

Have I meantioned how much I LOVE fall??? It's my second favorite season....next to Football season. In an effort to increase the presence of fall decor around our house, I wanted to whip up some fall-inspired picture frames. I love the look of burlap for fall, so I decided to use some leftover burlap I had from THIS  and THIS.

{Fall Frames}

         

Materials:
Scraps of Burlap (or any other fall-type fabric)
hot glue
picture frames

I had three colors of burlap to work with.


I got these frames for a dollar at Hobby Lobby. You could find some cheap frames at the Dollar Store too.


Cut your burlap into strips a little wider than your frame so it will wrap around. Use your glue gun to attach the pieces to the frame. You can do it neatly, or messy! I like the "slightly unfinished" look.


On another frame, I took strips of the burlap, and glued them down in a wavy ripple pattern. I love the texture of this one.


Make some flowers out of leftover burlap, fabric, or use ribbons, buttons, etc. to add to your frames.


Glue them on for a sweet embellishment.




Throw in your favorite pictures and set them up on the mantle! I should probably use more updated pictures than these...but I just love them so much. Gray probably won't nap sweetly in a basket outside this year for me to take pictures....


Happy Decorating!
