It’s that time of year again, friends. Boots and long sleeves, porches full of mums, and pumpkin everything.
And of course, our annual printable blog hop organized by my sweet friend, Kristen from Ella Claire Inspired. 🙂
I’ve seen this quote floating around for awhile, and I just love it. There’s something about fall that feels so new.
This year, for the blog hop – I wanted to something a little different than the framed printables I’ve done in the past.
I had this one printed at Staples as a 18×24 engineering print. I wanted something bigger that I could hang.
After picking it up, it was a little too bright white for the look I was going for, so I gently painted over the paper with some tea water – just one tea bag to create a very slight weathered paper look). After it dried, I framed it.
To create this hanging fall print, I cut two pieces of a 1×2 pine board about an inch and a half larger than the print (about 20 inches). Matt stained the wood with Minwax Mission Oak (my current fav).
Next, I used FrogTape to secure the print onto the wood so Matt could staple the print to the wood frame.
After stapling all the way across, we removed the FrogTape and then added some twine for hanging.

Upload it to Staples.com, have it printed as an engineering print (18×24 is the size I selected) for less than $2 and secure it to wood with a staple gun. Viola!
