More Great Fall Projects-Framed Art, Altered Tray, and Fall Covered Books

I have some more easy great fall projects for you today.

These are some small projects that I have done for my fall decor.

Framed Word Art

First up is my framed word art.  There are a lot of great free fall printables out on the Internet and pinterest.  Here is my printable pinterest board if you are interested.
I have this 11x14 frame that was used for a family picture. I now use it for my framed printables. Since it is so large, I use a plain picture frame mat to help hold an 8 1/2 x 11 printable.
I usually paint the mats to match my printable. For this printable I used a Making Memories paint color called acorn.
Paint the mat and allow to dry. I placed the printable on top of the mat and then placed in the frame.

Here is the framed art in my home. It sits on top of an antique hutch that is in my front entry hallway.

Altered Tray

My next project was super easy but I love the results. 
I bought this tray from Hobby Lobby for my dining table. It holds my candles and some fall sprays. I can change this out for each season.
To add an extra touch, I bought some knobs from Hobby Lobby as well. I had my husband cut off the silver screw part and just glued down the knobs with Fabri-Tac to each corner of the tray. Easy!!

Fall Book Covers

My next project involved some old Readers Digest books and scrapbook paper.
I love the added touch of books to my decor, but sometimes they just don't match in colors.
I took some 12x12 scrapbook paper and covered the books. Think back to the days of when we used to have to cover our books in school.
I also added some cardstock labels to the spine. You could add on a quote or come up with a neat book title as well.
I love this idea and will be doing this for each season!!

I hope you got some new ideas for your fall decor. Please feel free to pin my ideas on Pinterest!
Thank you for looking!
