Fall is almost here, and our Fall Sale is in full swing through the end of September. Be sure to join us for our Open House on September 22 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm for premium fall decor inspiration, giveaways, specials, and more!

If you can’t make it into the store, we’d like to share some of our crafty projects that celebrate the season with you. With just a few supplies and some creativity you’ll have your house or workspace ready for autumn in no time!

Wreath Inspiration

We love wreaths because they’re such an easy way to warm up every place, from your front door to your kitchen. Here are three simple ideas you can try this fall! 


For a super quick project, purchase one of our ready-made fall wreaths and adorn it with a pre-made plaque such as the metal “welcome” banner used here. You’ll be ready to entertain in no time!

To create a one-of-a-kind paper wreath, you’ll need a chipboard wreath form, some fall-themed scrapbook papers, plus a pretty ribbon or bow to add the perfect finishing touch. Don’t forget a hot glue gun and some glue sticks! Stop by our Paper Crafts Department to pick up our free project sheet on how to make this!


If you have a more space, a framed wreath combines our two favorite things into one eye-catching display! Start with a framed wood tray and a piece of scrapbook paper to add a neutral background with a bit of texture. Here, we used grapevine wreath to provide a rustic base for a few brightly-colored selections from our fall floral décor, and topped it all off with a small wooden “Thankful” ornament. All of these supplies are available in store!

Frames and Shadow Boxes

We love creating unique fall decor displays using a variety of frames and shadow boxes that we stock in store.


Create these signs using our fall themed vinyl transfers, floral stems and other seasonal embellishments to take plain wood frames and trays and turn them into perfect autumn home decor.


Add extra dimension to this plain pumpkin form with just a few simple embellishments! First, use an additional piece of wood and a vinyl transfer to create a “Gather” plaque to affix to your pumpkin. Then, add a few fall floral pieces and a ribbon to create your own unique sign. Not only is it perfect for your own decor, it also makes a great hostess gift!


Create this warmly lit sign using one of our pre-lit twig shadow boxes, fall berry sprigs and a “Gather” plaque. Combine them to create a piece perfect for any corner of your house that needs some seasonal warmth! 

Other Fall-Inspired Decor


Create this decorative memo board with a wire pumpkin frame, ribbon and some brightly colored fall leaves. Just add mini-clothespins and you’ll have the perfect spot to clip notes and photos to remind you of the season.


As the days get darker earlier and earlier, this is the perfect project to instantly brighten your space. You’ll need a wood tray, a lantern, lights and/or flameless candles, and decorative gourds and floral stems to create this beautiful display. We have a wide variety of trays and lanterns to choose from, so you can create the perfect piece to accent your home.
