Dictionary page banner

It's finally beginning to feel like fall here in Ohio. The weather is getting a bit cooler and the foliage has begun changing color. I love the fall and all the beautiful colors that it brings.
 
Last week I attempted to bring a bit of fall to our home with a small mantel makeover and a diy banner made with pages from an old dictionary.
 

 
To make the banner I used some pages from an old dictionary. I gently ripped out some pages that had fallish {if that's a word} words on them like thanksgiving, leaves, etc.
 
I folded the pages into fourths and then tore them along the fold lines. I liked the look of the rough edges. I used scissors to make the banner shape.
 
I used foam stamps and paint to stamp on my letters.
 
I used my hot glue gun to attach the papers onto a piece of twine.
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
