Fall Banner

Good Morning Everyone,
It's starting to feel like fall here at the beach.
Well, as close to fall as you can feel
temps in the high 70's to low 80's.
with the kids in school
the cooler days
and even,
some color changes in the leaves
I am feeling like fall.
So, Miss A and I decided it's time to start decorating for fall.
We have a very simple project for you today.
A fall banner made of burlap.
So simple.
We started with some burlap -
it doesn't take much about a fourth yard to make this little banner.
Cut 4 squares out each 4"x4".
I then pulled some of the strings to make it a little raveled
on the edges.
I like that shabby look.
Miss A wanted to make her own
so she has her four squares also.
I then cut the word F-A-L-L
out of cardstock with my Cricut.
For this banner I used a dark maroon color.
Then I used these metallic rub-on paints on each letter.
You can get these in your scrapbook area of your craft stores.
Just rub a little of your desired color on each letter.
I used the bronze.
It will look like this when your done.
Adds a little depth and interest to each letter.
Then I arranged a couple of leaves
behind each letter,
mixing them up a little for interest
as you can see above.
Using hot glue I glued each piece onto the burlap.
So simple - right?
And here they are.
Then I strung each of them onto some raffia.
You can get this in most craft stores.
I have had mine for years.
And, Wallah.....
You have the cutest little banner
to hang wherever you like.
Such a simple project
adds such a lot to the decor.
I love it...
That's it for today.
Have you started your fall decorating yet? 
What have you been working on?
So, get out there and do something fun
most of all
enjoy your life.
