September Door

I made this door decoration awhile back out of cool place mats from Wal*Mart. I think I saw them first on a blog made into a pillow.

Anyway... my friend and neighbor had a great front door decoration for Easter and I thought I could go a little more bold and bigger for my door decor, too!

The real leaves aren't completely falling just yet here in my part of the states, but they will be.

I love Fall. It is my favorite season!

The crafty scoop:

1. arrange placemats to your liking.
2. hand sew them together trying to not let the stitches show.
3. cut out poster board to match shapes of leaves and glue on back.
4. adhere additional small poster board pieces for junctions between leaves.
5. adhere a piece of ribbon on back
6. hang and admire :)
