Hi everyone! :) 

Julie with you here today sharing my take on this months challenge :)

I started with the AWESOME pine cones that a co-worker gave me (her boyfriend was going to throw them away!!)  YIKES!!! Thank goodness my co-worker thought to ask me first if I wanted them ... ummmmm hello?!?!? YES!!!! :) 

They are HUGE .... I put a 12 inch (1 foot) ruler next to it so you could see how big they are!





Then I had this big raw wood frame that I got on clearance at Michael's ($1.99!!!!)  -- I painted this a brown :)



Throw in some small silk leaves that I got at the Dollar Store ... 



Some large metal monograms that I got on clearance at Michael's (I spray painted them a brick color)  ... and what's even better, I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but there are brackets on these to hang them up ... well... I needed an "A" (for my son Adam), and Michael's only had a "G" ... so I turned it backwards, and POOF! an "A"!! :)  and same goes for the 2 "B's" here (for Brookie and Brian) ... one is really a "D" and the other is a "P" ... flip them over and instant "B's!!!" :) 




And here is the finished project!!! A Fall wall hanging for my home :) 









And here are the monograms!!! :)


 


Since I had the holes from the brackets on the letters, I used leaves and fake acorns to cover those spots up :)






And since this is a pretty tall wall hanging, I had to have an assistant to hold up my white board for my photos ... so let's give a round of applause to my own personal Vanna White (aka .... my daughter Brookie!!!)
