Quick and Easy Fall Shadow Boxes

Easy Fall Decor Shadow Boxes

Fall is the crafting season. The colors, the textures, and all the celebrations beg us to create. Yet, our full calendars make it hard to find the time to work on projects.  The school year is in full swing, there are games and recitals, parties to host, and don’t forget all the Chistmas gifts you want to make this year. One way to save a bit of time is to decorate with broad themes that can go from Halloween to Thanksgiving like these autumnal shadow boxes.

Decoupage Easy Fall Decor

To begin, give your boxes a good dusting to remove any bits of bark. Then, apply a layer of decoupage medium to the inside bottom of the box.

Next, print and trim your images to fit inside the boxes. Once you get the picture where you want it smooth out any air bubbles. Normally, I’d add a second coat of medium on the top of the image but didn’t feel it was necessary for this project.

Once everything is dry, bend the floral spike and lay it along the side of the shadow box. It may take a bit of rearranging, but when you get it how you want it hot glue it into place.

That’s it, three simple steps to create a lovely harvest shadow box. There is always the option of customizing the boxes to a specific holiday, depending on the images you use; those used here are from The Graphics Fairy.
