I don't know about you, but as soon as August rolls around each year I immediately jump to Autumn! Fall is my all time favorite season so I love decorating for it.
I have this little white 7 Gypsies crate that has so many fantastic uses. I've used it in the past for a S'mores Party, but I thought it was time for an update.
I took my Stitched Leaves dies from Lawn Fawn and cut a ton of leaves from plain white paper. Then, using a number of fall colors from Tattered Angels, I misted the leaves with Glimmer Mists.
After my leaves were dry, I glued them onto the crate using some Tombow liquid glue. I also cut a circle and a scalloped circle to layer the leaves on. I stamped the front circle with a woodgrain stamp, and the scalloped circle I embossed the edges with gold embossing ink.
For a finishing touch, I added some gold sequins from Doodlebug and then tied some cord around the side.
I don't actually know what I want to fill this crate with yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something!
I made a little show-and-tell video just to give you a better idea of the process. Enjoy!
