Fall twig sign for the fireplace

It's almost embarrassing how excited I am that I get to decorate a mantle this fall. Some of you may recall that time we had that atrocious booger colored fireplace in our living room. 

You can refresh your memory here and then like you did with Miley Cyrus's VMA butt cheeks quickly try to forget it EVER happened.

Well, I was so eager to get started that I actually spent some time this weekend making this fall twig sign for above the fireplace. 

Let me just start off by saying planning out a fall mantle is a lot of pressure.

I must of stared at this fireplace for what felt like an eternity trying to figure out what the heck I was suppose to do. Since running errands & shopping with a seven week old baby is kind of like coordinating a NASA shuttle launch I really, really wanted to utilize items I had hanging around the house. 

A quick venture down to our basement turned up these guys.

Stick thingamajigs

I bought these stick thingamajigs many years ago at Ikea to use for a large vase on one of our plant ledges. The extra bunch of sticks have since then been sitting around collecting dust, and spider eggs, and other weird things I don't want to know about.

I decided it was about time I put them to good use and that is when I thought it would be cool if I broke them down into letters and made a fall sign. 

"Fall is in the air"

After picking out what quote I wanted to use { "Fall is in the air" I know really original, right?}I just simply started cutting my letters from the sticks using a pair of pruning shears. 

Then I spray painted the letters three different colors; chocolate brown, sage, and a mellow yellow.

I grabbed a piece of left over wood we had lying around in our garage and then with wood glue started adhering the letters. Really, it was that simple!

I just love when projects are FREE and you use up stuff that has been sitting around your house.

I can't wait to finish up the rest of my fall mantle and of course you know I'll share with you all when I do because that's how I roll.

Have you started fall decorating yet? Do you tend to decorate more for fall in general or do you split it and decorate for fall and then switch it up for Halloween?
