It’s kind of sad to admit this — I got all excited to get out my Fall decor but when I actually pulled out all of my things, I realized I had like 2 or 3 items. What?? How does that happen? Fall is my favorite season so you’d think I’d be going all crazy in the decor department. So I decided I’d throw some pieces together this year so that when next year rolls around I won’t be as shocked.

First on the list, was creating a banner for my mantle. The great thing about banners is they can really be hung anywhere. You don’t have to have a mantle to decorate with them. And this banner was actually pretty simple to make.

Supplies
Felt
Fabric glitter
String
Glitter balls (optional)
Leaf pattern
Banner template
Letters (printed & cut out)
Scissors
Glue gun
X-acto knife

I picked up my felt sheets at Hobby Lobby. I bought more than I needed but I didn’t want to run back to the store. I used3 felt sheets of orange (for the banner and leaves), one seafoam, one brown, one champagne and 2 sheets of the gold glitter fabric (for the letters and the leaves).

To start, I printed out a leaf pattern, cut it out, pinned it to the felt and cut the leaves out — 4 leaves of each color.

Next, I printed out this banner template. It seemed bigger than I wanted my banner to be so I actually scaled it down to 75% and then printed it out. I had to play with it a little bit to get the size I wanted. I cut out 6 pieces for the word ‘Autumn.’

Leaves are falling all around,
On the rooftops, on the ground.
Leaves are falling on my toes, on my head and on my nose!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again we LOVE Fall!! There’s just something about the season that makes us happy! My personal favorite is watching the leaves change. It’s so magical and colorful and bright! So I set out to find some crafts using leaves or that have a leaf theme so that I could bring a little bit of the outdoors inside.

Misty made this last year and it seriously is so cute! I wanted to make one after she shared her post but I ran out of time and so this year, it’s on my to-do list. 🙂
