Before fall is over I want to share this craft that I made back in September (don't judge me... I know I'm late posting this).
So, all I did was get an old pallet, break it down, and then put it back together with varying heights, then screwed it together and cut a straight line across the bottom. I had a sample supply of beige paint from Home Depot, so I painted it. Then I free handed a tree in chocolate brown craft paint and stenciled on "autumn" in dark orange. A quick trip to micheals resulted in an awesome 1 lb. bag if miscellaneous buttons, which I attached to the tree like leaves, with hot glue.
Lastly, I sprayed the entire thing with a coat of sealant. I have had so many people come over and comment in it. Honestly, I was inspired by a random photo I saw online. The photo didn't have directions or a link to a blog that I could see so, I just winged it.
