Decorate for Fall & Halloween with G45!
First, Sandy celebrates her favorite season with her gorgeous home decor piece!
"Autumn is quite possibly my favorite season of all here in the USA—cooler air, leaves falling, pecans & pumpkins (for pies), pretty mums, other autumn flowers and when it gets cold enough—hot chocolate or cider! I’ve had a beautiful vintage mason jar in my craft room for a couple of years that I purchased at an antique mall and have always wanted to turn it into a pretty yet rustic flower vase. When deciding on something to create for Graphic 45, I took the jar off the shelf, pulled out a couple of Graphic 45 paper collections and went to work. I love how it turned out! A band of the World’s Fair paper and a contrasting decorative center piece to hide where the 12” band didn’t quite meet, Fall stickers and chipboard from the Children’s Hour collection, burlap twine, lace and a couple of pretty flowers pulled it all together for a quick, simple Fall Décor piece. Add some flowers from the market and it’s done. Happy Crafting" ~ Sandy
Tip: Make your crafting flower stash go a bit further by cutting larger flowers into half or even thirds. Use a hot glue gun to place the flower parts on your project behind other flowers, lace, bows, etc. Folding a piece of a flower in half will make it look fuller. Add more to your craft arrangement by cutting very thin strips of the paper and curling them around a cuticle stick or other small round stick to make tendrils. Glue the tendrils into the floral piece.
