Decorate for Fall & Halloween with G45!

  OLGA SEPTEMPER CURIOSITIES HALOWEEN IN WONDERLAND1 (4)

Today, we have decor ideas that are perfect for Fall and Halloween! Sandy Trefger and Olga Heldwein hit it out of the park with their clever ideas.

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.

Just love the Graphic 45 design team ideas!

Gorgeous!!

These are AMAZING projects! Thanks for sharing.

Great ideas! Love the Rare Oddities Shadow Box! TFS!

The fruit jar is awesome! How pretty and clever...

Don't the flowers look great in such a pretty glass jar.
Many thanks,
Sue M

Sandy's flower vase is beautiful! I love her tip about the tendrils! Olga's shadowbox is breathtaking! Very spookaliscious and stunning! TFS!

Beautiful projects! This is my favorite time of year - what's better than crisp Fall days and fun Halloween decor? 🍁🎃

I love the mason jar decorated for fall and the Halloween shadowbox is so Boo-tiful! Great giveaway this week - generous G45!

Every day I read your blog. I love all these great projects and wonderful inspirations to work with your gorgeous papers!

Thank you so much for posting these "not-quite-as-ornate-as-some" projects. (While Olga's shadowbox is obviously not simple or quick, it is less ornate than many other projects.) I love seeing the complicated creations that people build, but I think that many of us spend more time on simpler projects like layouts, cards, banners, wreaths, etc., and simpler versions of mini-albums, shadowboxes, and upcycle projects. I'd like to see more of those please! :-)

A girl can't have enough Graphic 45. Paper, staples, chipboard.

Absolutely stunning projects!
Thanks for sharing :D

Lovely bottle decor. :) I hope to win. Kiss.

Fun shadow box
design and the
Fall bottle decorations

Love these projects. I am just back from holidays and can't wait to get started on Fall goodies. Thanks for the inspiration.

Love that Mason jar vase! I think G45 has really helped us by coordinating all their paper collections so that we can pull various papers together into one project. Thanks, G45!

Beautiful projects! Thanks for the inspiration!

Such amazing art is made with Graphic 45 and their designers. I appreciate the detailed directions as I have done some smaller works. I love Childrens Hour and would love to be fortunate enough to win it.

Awesome projects as always, and I am so in love with Olga's spooky shadow box! Cool!

Graphic 45 products make the most stunning and eye-popping projects. I'm always impressed with the creations that the design team shares with us.

Olga's shadowbox is stunning! Great job!

What a great idea for dressing up a jar. And the curiosities shadow box is really spooky. Nice job designers!

Spooky shadowbox and love the pretty way this vase is decorated.

I just can't get enough of these stunning projects!!

So cute! Love the paper as curled ribbon,sweet.
Thanks for the great giveaway!!

Wow really like the Ball Jar, What a neat idea. I've got many and may just do one today. Thanks for the idea.
