Well, despite the weather, I’m still getting into a fall mood. Unfortunately where I live, it stays pretty warm until the end of November. That’s one of the reasons I haven’t been taking outfit picks. It’s just too hot to wear fall clothes.
Once again, I bring you a great craft project from Darby Smart! ( You have to read that in an announcer’s voice for it to sound right in you head. ) I’ve been wanting to do something fall-ish, so I hopped on over to their website and picked out a few things. Well, my box came in the mail last Friday and I couldn’t wait to get started.
Then, came a terrible cold. I won’t go into details and bore you. Long story short; Ashleigh got sick, Ashleigh sat around for a day ( drinking tea, eating soup, and watching Land Girls ), Ashleigh got better. Now my allergies are bothering me.
Enough about that. Onto to the tutorial! ( Announcer voice again. )
You will need:
– Stencil ( unfortunately, Darby ran out of the one I used. They do have some pretty other ones, though. )
– Stipple Brush ( I know there’s a sponge brush in the picture, but pretend it’s not there. )
– Paint ( I chose red, orange, and yellow )
– Card stock ( to keep the paint from going through the burlap to the table underneath )
Step 1. Protect your table by placing sheets of card stock underneath your burlap. You could use a drop cloth, but it might make your burlap uneven.
Step 2. Place stencil where you want your pattern to start. If you want, you could tape it down.
Step 3. Start painting! I put my leaves in rows, but you could mix up the design and make it unique.
Step 4. Let it dry and you’re finished!
Fall is my favorite time of year. Can you tell?
