Fall decor at hobby lobby
During my “window shopping” at Hobby Lobby I came across this Thankful wood cutout in the Fall decor section!
Heads up, during this time all Fall decor is 40% off.
I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it and headed straight over to the unfinished wood section.
Going through this aisle, I looked through different unfinished signs and held up my Thankful cutout to see if they fit size-wise or if I liked the looks.
I came across this new style that incorporated wood beads in the frame and luckily my Thankful cutout fit perfectly!
I used my 40% off coupon for the unfinished Wood sign to save some more money!
Next I went back to the Fall decor section and looked through the florals items to get ideas on how I wanted to embellish my Fall sign.
I did find a neat sunflower napkin holder that I really liked and added this to my cart.
The ring of these napkin holders are perfect for crafting with because the rings are easily removed.
Let’s create our thankful sign
While the glue gun is heating up, I started painting the Thankful cutout.
I picked Dixie Belle’s Colonel Mustard for my color.
Dixie Belle’s is my favorite paint to use, but feel free to use craft paint from Hobby Lobby, Walmart or whatever your favorite paint is!
This is your project to personalize, have fun with it!
I did not paint inside the Thankful cutout, I left that black and this will add some dimension to our Fall sign.
Once this is painted, I grabbed my unfinished wood sign and did a “dry run” and laid everything out.
The Sunflower napkin ring?
Remove the ring and discard.
I also had some Fall maple leaves that fell off one of my garlands and I saved it for potential crafts, like this one!
When I had an idea of how I wanted my Thankful Fall sign to look, I grabbed my E600 and hot glue gun.
I started with the E6000 first since it will take longer to cure and applied this on the backside of my Thankful cutout.
Once I had the E6000 applied over the thickened areas of the letters I then grabbed my hot glue gun.
Here I worked a little faster since the hot glue will cool and cure quicker.
I applied the hot glue over the remaining areas that did not have the E6000 and then I flipped my Thankful wood cutout and applied this to the unfinished wood sign.
Next I then added E6000 glue to where I was going to apply my maple leaves and sunflower and then added some hot glue also and applied the flowers.
That is basically it!
Once both glues have cured, you are ready to hang or display your sign in with your Fall decor!
