Welcome back to Day 2 of Autumn Is Here Blog Hop hosted by Creations With Kathryn. Yesterday's hop was so fun. I hope you got some good ideas! If you arrived from Michelle of Peanut Butter & Jelly Designs then you are in the right place. If you just stumbled upon my blog and want to start at the beginning go to Creations With Kathryn.
Before I get to my stuff I want to give a Shout Out to Lissa of So Many Crafts So Little Time. While at her blog during the hop yesterday I noticed a section of her blog Photography Tips for Beginners. I left a comment for Lissa asking for tips on taking pictures for our blogs. She graciously posted some tips about an hour after my comment. Thank you sooooo much Lissa. To bad it has rained here all day and we had no natural light. I will try to use your tips for next time. :)
Michelle always finds the coolest digi stamps. Her card from yesterday really goes with my projects for today. :)
Project 1 is a Wall Hanging.
I used 11 craft sticks on the front. If you were to use the jumbo craft sticks you would not need as many. Just make sure you use enough to cover the 3 sticks on back that give the wall hanging sturdiness. I found some fall napkins at Dollar General (for $1). Cut out the design you want and and take the back layer of your napkin off. I used Mod Podge to decoupage the napkin onto the craft sticks. My husband was nice enough to drill 2 small holes so I could add the wire and raffia to hang.
Project 2 is an Altered Clay Pot
I took a clay pot and painted it brown. I used the same napkins to decorate the pot. I just cut the cornucopia out differently but Mod Podged it on as well as the leaves. Right now I am using the pot to hold what few napkins we have. We are more a paper towel family. You could also put a small plant in it.
I hope you like what you have seen. I would love to hear from you and for you to become a follower.
The next stop on this hop is Tina with Tina Time.
