Autumn Splendor

Do you get on Pinterest??
It is so addicting and there are so many talented and creative people ....
I saw this frame on Pinterest awhile back and loved the simplicity of it....
I had bought a bunch of old frames several years ago at a yard sale.....
put them in the barn and kind of forgot about them....
I have since fought the bats~mice~and squirrels and went upstairs in the barn to retrieve them!!
 
 
I painted the frame with some of the "samples" of paints Lowe's now has
in little jars for $2.94...have you seen them.....
they are perfect for projects like this and will be having the "fall" colors soon....
I bought numerous jars of the Spring colors and a few of the Summer ones....
anyhow, how did I get so sidetracked??
I cut my leaves with a Tim Holtz Alterations leaf die....
glued them on with a hot glue gun....
I actually made 2 of these and gave one to my Mom....
I am entering this in the "Decorate To Celebrate" challenge "Autumn Splendor"
 
 
I am into "simple" decorating this year and I like it!!
