Easy Dollar Store Fall Upcycle
I was at the dollar store and found these super cute wooden pieces for fall. I grabbed a few and upcycled them into fall decor for my home.
Here are the wooden pieces I found at the dollar store. The large pieces were $1 and the small were 5 for $1.
I stained all of the small pieces with Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in the following colors – Gray, Cascade, Oak, and White.
Once that dried I used Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in the color Walnut to draw on the veins of the leaves and indents of the pumpkins.
I let those dry completely.
I stained the large leaf with Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in the color Walnut and let it dry.
I painted on the veins with the Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in the color white.
I took the twine that came with the smaller pieces, looped it through and hot glued them in a line towards each other. I hung it up to enjoy all fall.
What beautiful fall decorations! I’m always amazed at the God-given creativity so many people have.
You are so very sweet Donna, thank you so much.
