I've really been into Fall home decor projects lately and next weekend I'll be decorating my home for the season, so I went through my stash of alterables once again, remembering I had purchased a metal wagon on clearance this past Spring.
Here's what it looked like from the craft store. It was 60% off! One of my favorite things to do is grab a big Starbucks coffee and wander the aisles of my local Hobby Lobby. Not only are there great deals and wonderful choices, there's inspiration everywhere!
Here's how it looked after I altered it with Carta Bella's Fall Blessings paper collection. Fun, eh? It didn't take much time at all to alter it. Let me take you through a few steps.
I started by cutting strips, punching some borders on some and then layering them together.
I removed the wheels to make it easier to work with and then I adhered the strips to the wagon with double-sided sticky tape and put 4-inch circles of paper behind each wheel with a few dots of tacky glue.
I reattached the wheels to the wagon...
...then I fussy cut the Happy Fall banner pieces and few leaves. I wrapped more of the paper around a candle and eventually tied a ribbon around it too.
I filled my wagon with Fall sprigs, pinecones, acorns, a pumpkin and my candle.
Not sure if I'll keep the stickers on the wheels or not just yet. They're cute, for sure though.
Make sure you pop over and LIKE the Carta Bella Facebook page and check out their challenges and new releases. Their paper is so fun to work with. It has great body and texture and the imagery is always fantastic!
Thanks for stopping in today. I'll let you know if I win the Project Challenge. They're picking three winners on Monday, August 24th.
Have a great weekend!
