See that art on the wall?
The pieces right next to my doors from 1908?
Guess how long it took me to make each piece?
Are you ready?
Are you sitting down?
Wait. Hold on. Let me pause for dramatic emphasis.
47 SECONDS to make each piece of art.
And the best part?
It is one of my favorite projects I’ve ever created. What was I thinking spending all that time on fall? Why did I spend hours decorating mantels and decorating a transitional fall porch and creating dining room centerpieces with velvet pumpkins and creating book page fall displays?
When all I needed was 47 seconds.
It all started with this frame.
It’s called a “float” frame because you can put a picture between the two panes and suspend it.
I got it at Target.
There are TONS of frames on sale right now in the frame section.
Every Target is different, but mine had most of them for about 40% off.
This one wasn’t on sale, but there were several other options that were.
Here’s how it works.
There’s this insert that’s plastic that looks like this.
You just push it in on one side and remove it.
Then find a leaf in your fall decorations.
Do NOT over think your leaf.
You probably have some sitting on your mantel now you could adopt for this project.
Remove the plastic frame insert.
Remove the piece of plastic from the back of the frame.
Place the leaf on the glass.
Place the piece of plastic back in place and reinsert the plastic frame insert.
Here’s a close-up of my frame when it was finished.
I used four leaves in slightly different color variations and I angled the leaves in different directions to create visual interest.
Here are all four pieces hung together on the wall.
When fall is over you could add snowflakes for winter and flowers for spring and flags for summer.
The possibilities are endless.
And all you need is a frame, a leaf…
…and 47 glorious, wonderful, amazing seconds.
PS Happy weekend.
IT’S UNDER 70 DEGREES in Texas.
Break out the sweaters. 🙂
