2 DIY Fall Decor Projects

by Lynn Lilly, Sep 02 2020

It's Fall Yall! It might not feel like fall in my hometown of Atlanta but I sure can pretend and get in the mood with decorations and pumpkin spice everything! I partnered with Aleene's to create Fall decor with their Matte and Gloss Decoupage. I decided to challenge myself to create two different decorations using two of the same base surfaces! I can't wait to see which one you like best! Ready..set.... Make! 

2 Sets of Materials, 2 Designs.... Let's Make!

Falling for Fall Sign

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Cut a piece of paper to fit the inside of the sign. I used a 12" x 12" piece of paper. It did not fit the 15" inch length of the sign but the wood mason jar will cover it up so no worries!
  2. Brush the Aleene's Gloss Decoupage on the base of the sign. Brush a coat on the back of the sheet of paper you cut in step 2. Aleene's Decoupage
  3. Place the paper on the surface of the sign and smooth out bubbles with your fingers. Set aside for now.
  4. Cut a piece of decorative paper to fit within the parameters of the wood mason jar. 
  5. Brush decoupage on the surface of the mason jar and the back of the paper.  
  6. Place the paper on the mason jar and smooth out air bubbles with fingers. 
  7. Brush a top coat over the entire mason jar. 
  8. Place paper words on the wet surface of paper. These could be pre-cut letters or ones you can cut on a cutting machine. 
  9. Use a foam spouncer brush to apply the decoupage over the letters and then smooth out the decoupage with a larger brush. 
  10. Tie a bow around the neck of the mason jar. 
  11. Glue the mason jar to the sign with the Aleene's Tacky Glue. 
  12. Brush a coat of decoupage over the base of the sign. Add cut-out words on the wet paper. 
  13. Use the foam spouncer to apply decoupage over the words. Smooth out excess decoupage with a brush. 
  14. Let it dry before displaying!!!
