Fall Window Topper

 

 

After finally finishing the painting of my laundry room (YAY!) and as I was hanging things on the walls again, I decided to do a quick change to my fall window topper. Last year I used pumpkin, berry and autumn leaf garland to create an easy topper, but wanted something with a little more structure and a natural element.

I headed to Michaels to see what would inspire me and found some natural looking branches that I thought would work. They had a lot of glittery branches, ready for some holiday sparkle, but that was not the look I was going for here. You could easily go to the woods and gather your own bunch of branches too, but it was a cold rainy day and it was expedient (and warmer) to purchase some.

To make the window topper, I simply cut the branches to the length I wanted, and then wound some leftover fall garland through the branches, securing it as I went along by wrapping the wire around loose branches. To secure everything together and to give some stability when hanging, I tied some sweet bows with twine and burlap all along the length of the branches.

It is absolutely impossible to get a good photo of the window topper hanging in my laundry room, but you can see a corner view of how it looks here. It is the perfect seasonal change to the window I have a lot of fun changing throughout the year, as the mood strikes me.

Have a great day!

  5. It's so frustrating when pictures don't show things as well as you think they should, right? That being said, I think the window topper looks great. I love the sort of tousled, rustic look of it. Well done!

  6. I know what you mean about shooting a small area like that - I tried to take a shot of my valance in the guest bathroom. No matter which way I did it, there was a shadow.

    That window treatment looks great - fabulous for a laundry room. Do you switch it for every season? Cool idea!
