Fall Printable

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make your home extra cozy for the holidays. Fall decorations are some of my favorites (second only to Christmas). When I stumbled across this great list of darling fall printables, I could hardly wait to get one in a frame and into my living room.

The fact that when I got home my sweet husband had stopped by the store and got me a bottle of pumpkin spice creamer (my favorite! because I’m a shameless basic white girl) just sealed the deal. FALL IS HERE, YA’LL. EMBRACE IT!

I love making things for people. It makes my heart so happy, I wish I had all the time in the world to just craft my little heart out. After hearing my friend mention seeing these at the store, but not being able to find an “H,” I knew I could make her one!

This is such a quick, fun little project, and all you need are a few simple supplies:

  • Block letter (mine was cardboard, $2.99 from Walmart)
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • Maps
  • Scissors
  • Pen or pencil to trace

Directions:

  • First, lay the letter down and trace it on the map, making sure that you are getting what you want on the backside (for instance, I wanted to make sure that I got both land and sea for a variety of colors). Do this for both the front and back of the letter.IMG_2523
  • Next, give one side of the letter a thin, quick brushing of mod podge. This has to be done quickly so that it does not dry before you lay down the map. Make sure you get the edges and corners.IMG_2525IMG_2524
  • After “gluing down” the map on both sides, make sure to press on the map or go over it with a credit card to get rid of all the little bumps and bubbles. Wipe the excess Mod Podge from the sides and don’t worry if it looks smeared (it will dry clear).
  • Go over the top of the map on both sides with another thin layer of Mod Podge to give your letter a finished look. Give the first side time to dry before you do the second side.
  • Lastly, set the letter up so that it can dry completely. I used a glass to prop it up in the middle, allowing both sides to dry.
