Ready for the three super simple DIY decor projects I mentioned in our fall mantel post? Of course you are! Now, I realize that these projects aren't rocket science or anything, but I thought they'd be fun to share as we get into more fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Holiday decorating. Who doesn't need extra ideas during this season? These projects are so stinkin' easy and you can probably tackle them with items you have laying around at your house. Let's get to it!
Project #1: Torn stacked books wrapped in twine
This one is something I also saw at Bachman's Fall Idea House!
Grab a stack of old books you no longer use, or get a bunch at Goodwill (I picked up 10 for $1.49). Then simply tear off the covers, but take it slow and carefully so that the glued side comes off also. Then stack as many as you want and wrap with twine, or ribbon, or whatever you like!
Project #3: Framed faux leaf with burlap or book page backing
Here is the book page version that I did as well. In the end I used this for the fall mantel, thought it looked better with the 'Gather' banner.
Boom! That's it!
Linking up as well at the Fall Craft Linky Party over at Centsational Girl!
