“We All Fall Down” {Fall Décor}

178_0369Made this to add to my “Fall Décor”.  I was inspired by Lorie at Be Different . . . Act Normal, she has this fun way of labeling her posts, her label for fall is “We All Fall Down”.  So I took it and ran with it. 

Modge Podge


{To Make}


Cut up your cardboard box, I used a Costco diaper box.  I kept a side and the bottom and then folded it in half at the seam.  I thought two layers would be better than one.


178_0342 Fold in half, tape together well.  Measure burlap, cut down to size of cardboard with about two extra inches on each side.
Staple burlap to cardboard, pulling tightly.  Doesn’t have to be too pretty, this will be the back.



I used my Cricut to cut out my tree and about 60ish leaves.  (Both came from the “Stretch Your Imagination” cartridge my wonderful hubby got me for Christmas last year.)  I laid out the leaves before I Modge Podged everything down.



178_0375 Finished!  Love it!  Every time I walk past it I feel so proud.

  20. So I know you posted this a year ago, but I just found it and LOVE IT! I am in the process of trying to make one now. I just had a couple of questions about how you did it.

    You said you stapled on the burlap. Did you make sure the staple went all the way through or did you put extra layers so it would not go all the way through. Also, how well did the staples stay? Mine seem to just pop right out unless I do a single layer and have them go all the way through, but I would rather not do that.

    Lastly, I know you modge podged it on, but did you just do it over the paper or did you put it over the entire thing so it would all have the same texture/shine?

    Thank you!


{Thanks for taking time to stop by!}
