I saw Mom on Saturday, and told her I had no idea what I was going to do for my last two Fall Challenge projects. And then I headed to my Pinterest boards and saw this sweet pin (that I already mentioned at the beginning of the month in this post) and knew I needed to create my own version!
Thanks to the fall wreath project, I had leftover burlap and ribbon and even felt! So with embroidery thread and buttons already in my stock pile I was able to gather up supplies, plop myself in front of the tv and craft away!
I stitched the leaves onto the burlap and then hot glued the pieces of fabric over some thin mini canvases I had and then embellished with the buttons! Such a fun easy craft!
Mom had mused in her Embroidered Leaf Minis post that if I did this project ours could turn out similar. But I think the felt stitched leaves vs embroidered leaves have totally different feels to them. Although my buttons on my leaves add a little something-somethin’ if you know what I mean. (And in the same breath I lose at buttons because of this post of Mom’s if this is really a competition)
Have I linked enough of our previous posts yet? ;)
When I finished this up I literally just walked around my house until I found an empty nail. And totally nailed the length of my hanging decoration because it covers up that ugly spot on the wall where weird cords used to be (which 3-4 years after removing them and the cover we’ve yet to patch/paint over… ha).
And that’s all I got! I feel like I need to say more, but I’m sure my words have bored you enough already… witty brain must’ve gone to bed a few hours ago. I’m obviously very witty in all my other posts! (insert laughing until crying emoji here)
