Day 17 Fall Countdown

Day 17

Greetings, y’all! For some reason thinking about fall makes me want to say, y’all..and rhyme apparently! Here’s today’s fallspiration.

Art doesn’t always have to be a picture in a frame. I love that it can be anything you create. I wanted to create the illusion of leaves falling off the branch. I love to watch the leaves dance and twirl as they gently land in a bed of green. Here’s my little piece of fall art.

This is a painted branch from outside and those spray painted craft leaves I’ve been using in a lot of fall projects.

I simply just double knotted my white thread and ran the thread through the leaf. The white thread is almost invisible against the ceiling and I love the simplicity of this. Not overdone but a nice little way to greet fall in your decor.

Enjoy your weekend! Our weather here is shaping up to be perfection. We will be on our anniversary trip all weekend. I plan on checking in and to show a little bit of our wanderings.

    I’ve been meaning to go hunt down some branches for some time now. Preferably birch for this reason!

      Thanks! I used these branches a few years back and made a Christmas chandelier with them and I love to find new ways to use them :) xo Kristin

    These posts are almost making me regret I don’t get fall down here, which is quite a feat!

    Great design. I’m an East Coast girl living in California. What do I miss most? Falling leaves and thunderstorms. Your next project Kristy….thunderstorms, lol.

      Wouldn’t that be something to try to design! Oh, the east coast in fall, I wish I could be there too! xo Kristin

    Oh my! These are so BEAUTIFUL! And they look so easy and fun to make I really want to try it. How did you make the leaves?
    I would love it if you linked this up to my party, Spark, over at:
    I see that you are doing a countdown and you can feel free to link up as many posts relating to fall as you would like :)
    I would be thrilled to see you there!

      Thanks so much! I just spray-painted craft store leaves with metallic gold spray paint. Super easy! xo Kristin

    That is a very cool idea! Makes me wish I didn’t have 10 ft ceilings.

      Ladders would definitely have to be involved for that one! xo Kristin

  1. […] I have been working on a little DIY project over here. It’s a small project and is inspired by my current love for Chevron print. I think I may have worn out my Chevron welcome here but I’m going to go out on a limb and hope some of you like it too. I will share it next week but here is a DIY project I am swooning over from Kristin at Bliss. It’s simple, inexpensive to make and would be the perfect inspiration board for me. Check out her cute DIY blog and follow her Fall Countdown. […]

I love your comments!!!
