Fall Banner Number 2!

I wanted to share the Fall Banner I made for my swap partner Sandy who blogs at 521 Lake St.

I started this swap off with one idea......and then I changed my can read about that here.

I decided to use some fabric that I had on hand instead of paper. I spelled out the word Autumn and put each letter on a scrap piece of burlap.

A few embellishments, and stitched to a piece of fabric and it was done.

You gotta love the Goodwill...I found a Starbucks Fall coffee cup and filled it with tea bags, and a tin pumpkin that holds a tea light. I made a fabric pumpkin, and filled a vintage salt shaker with a few Halloween candies. Fabric strips added to tea towels, and Sandy's Fall package was finished.



  1. Hi Chris-
    I'm sure Sandy will be delighted with her package! You put so many cute details into it. I love that you used fabric and burlap on your will last forever!
    Great Job,
    Erica :)
