Fall Fun

I wanted to add something seasonal to my wall of pictures that I could change throughout the year to keep things fresh.

I had two open spaces for 5x7 somethings and some space at the top that could be used to help balance things a bit better. So I headed to my favorite craft store with that in mind.

I also had those 5 x 7 canvases. After painting and gluing the letters, they ended up looking like this:

A nice little project that I'll be able to repeat when Winter rolls around.
