A home fall decor plaque

Hey everyone. With fall now if full swing, I thought I should show you a fast home decor piece that I made for Imaginisce. It was pretty quick to make and I loved how it turned out.

On this project, I had a little wooden oval plaque (Kaisercraft), that I painted with a burnt orange paint. Next I used some of the Tim Holtz distress inks to "distress" the look of the paint. Next, I cut out the cornucopia from my Lite Cricut cartridge Celebrate with Flourish. I believe this image was about 4" tall.

It did take a few tries to make sure I had all the paper layers the right color for the corresponding fruit or vegetable, but I think I got it pretty straight. Then I used some of my cuttlebug embossing folders to add texture to some of my layers. After gluing all the pieces together, I then pop dotted the cornucopia and placed it on my plaque.

And to finish it off, I used some of the Imaginisce Apple Cider  "Be Blessed" rubons.

So that is it. It was pretty simple to do and I really like how it turned out. I think I am definitely going to put it out at Thanksgiving for sure.

Thanks for stopping by!!
