Robert Frost's famous poem says "nothing gold can stay". Just like autumn-but that's what makes it so special. It is my favorite season for being outside, for decorating, for warm smelling candles and food.
Here is a simple fall display I made on a key hook board to celebrate the golden colors of fall a little longer. Here is what I used:
- scrapbook paper in pretty fall-like colors
- permanent markers
- low temp glue gun
- glue stick
- crinkle safety scissors
- packing tape
- small hole punch
- small strip of lace
-My 3 year old got in on the leaf cutting fun with some safety crinkle scissors and a glue stick to paste the leaves together. We hole punched the tops and they were ready to hang on the hooks.
-I made the "FALL" sign by writing letters with the permanent marker onto the paper.
-I placed packing tape around the front and back of the letters to "laminate" them.
-Then I cut the letters into neat squares.
-I glued the squares to the strip of lace with a low temp glue gun.
-Attaching little buttons to the ends finished the project and I hung them onto each hook across the board.
Here is a larger picture of my keyhook-picture board along with a glass hurricane lantern.

I added some real leaves around the base of the lantern that are still staying gold for me...at least for a little while.
-Thanks for reading!
