Adorable DIY Fall Decor in Minutes

I don't have a recipe to share today, but I do have a great tip!  If you are new to Sweet Little Bluebird, you may have missed one of my favorite tricks for easy holiday decor.  I had a light bulb moment in Marshall's last December...you can read about that here and see what I made.  I have been doing the same trick for every single holiday since!


Framing scrapbooking and card making stickers for easy holiday decor! So easy, inexpensive...I just love them!




All you need:
Frame(s)
Matte (scarpbook paper, fabric)
Stickers
Scissors 


Voila!
Cute fall decor in less than 5 minutes!



This little owl came in a set of 3 from Marshalls ~ 
If I remember correctly, they were $9.99.

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheers!

I've never done scrapbooking but find I'm hitting that aisle all the time now. The rub ons are another great way to add pics or words and they are so cheap. Love that you reuse the frame and don't have to store them! ~ Maureen

Mary these two pictures are darling! I have to admit I love the acorn one best. Together with that owl (which I'm envious of) they make a great fall vignette. I'm with Maureen, I've never done scrapbooking, but they have a lot great stuff for all things crafty in that aisle!

You're so smart Mary. I love that acorn and owl together. I might just have to copy this one!!!

Mary ~ said...

Thank you! It is my most favorite, budget friendly trick! I can't wait to see what you make!

Hi Maureen, I don't scrapbook, but I love all the stickers and paper. There are some really adorable card making "stickers" too. The 3d/raised ones are my favorite!

I hope you are having a great start to fall!

Best wishes to you!

Mary ~ said...

Thank you, Danni. The acorn is my favorite too. I bought the owl at Marshalls in a set of 3, all identical. I don't scrapbook...I tried, but failed miserably, but I love all the paper and stickers!

Hi Sherry,

Thank you!

If you have Hobby Lobby and you want to make this, don't forget to grab the 40% off coupon on Hobby Lobby's site. I got the paper and little frame there too :) So cheap to make and you can change them out for the seasons/holidays! I bought the owl at Marshalls in a set of 3, all identical, for $9.99 - they are for tea lights, but cute all alone!
