A Handmade Fall

iamonly1woman.blogspot.com/



 I decided to make a Fall table runner and a couple of more things for Fall. First, I used my woman's prerogative to change my mind and re-did my subway art pumpkin. I painted it white and covered it with the only glue I had, Gorilla wood glue, using a sponge brush.

 While I was at it I covered a round box I had with the glue also. I completely covered both with torn strips of paper. That's it. No top coat or anything over it. I won't insult you with a tutorial, it was too easy to make. I'll show them to you later in this post. Now on to the runner.

 I traced some faux Fall leaves onto some craft foam and cut them out.

 I used my gorilla glue again with some corks to turn the shapes into stamps.



I squeezed out some yellow, orange and red acrylic paint onto some foil.


I swirled my stamp around a bit in the paint to mix the colors and stamped patterns on some drop cloth material.

Viola! A homemade one of a kind runner.

 I like the colors.

 Here's the pumpkin re-do, I added a home made tag to it.
 This box would have been cute stamped with my Fall stamps, but I might  use it later for something else.
 So, I just lightly decorated the top.
 I went through my old time viewer cards and added them with some leaves to a picture holder, easy peasy.
 I sprinkled some loose leaves,
 I really like the way it looks together and it cost me next to nothing.
 I'm on the look out lately for some more of these vintage juice glasses that I like to use as votive holders. I love the color and pattern of this glass. I found this one at a yard sale for 25 cents.
I hope I've inspired you today to see what you might already have around the house and make it into something new! :O)

You are SO talented! I just "look" at glue, and it sticks to my fingers!! I do, however, enjoy looking at the pictures of glue on your blog because you always create something awesome with it!

Take care, Sue
