I pulled out my collection of waxed leaves and simply strung them with these cute mini clothes pins that I found at Michaels and clipped them onto a strand of twine. I think it's cute! I made the sign out of an old piece of wood I found outside in the wood pile.
I cut...well more like...I jumped onto the wood to break it. I sanded the rough edges and then gave it a good scrubbing with steel wool soaked in apple cider vinegar. Not only did it clean the wood but it added to the aged patina.
I found a font I liked on my computer and printed the words "Fall" and "Harvest" to fit the board. I knew Karen at +The Graphics Fairy LLC would have the perfect image for my sign and as always, she did not disappoint. Using carbon paper, I traced the text and images onto the board and with watered down acrylic craft paint I meticulously hand-painted over the transfers.
