A Sparkling Vintage Life


Create a Fall-Themed Collage (31 Days to a Sparkling Vintage Fall, Day 26)

fall collage2I have a glass-fronted shadowbox that I like to keep on our mantel. In the last few years, I’ve started changing out the items in the shadowbox to reflect a seasonal theme.This is a really fun way to fill a couple of hours on a rainy afternoon.

The photo above shows my autumn shadowbox “in process.” I simply gather scraps of paper, bits and bobs that remind me of fall, photos from magazines, etc., then play around with them until I’m pleased with how they look. Then I glue or  pin them in place. This shadowbox includes assorted scraps of paper left over from card-making, a few leaf embellishments, foliage, pumpkin and fruit stickers, and a bit of extraneous sheet music. In about a month, I’ll exchange these items with Christmas-themed ones.  It’s a low-stress way to use up scraps and add a little bit of seasonal decor to your home.
