…Plus an acorn. I found these super cute Wood Fall Leaf Ornaments in Target’s Dollar Spot for only $1 each (actually) plus this adorable acorn one. I couldn’t resist the price and for the size and as solid as the wood feels, one dollar is a steal. If you’re wondering what in the world I’d do with fall leaf ornaments, the answer is simple. And a little odd. I have a
Christmas Fall Tree in my dining room that I’ve had up since last December when I decorated it with a Winter Wonderland theme. It’s a beautiful white tree I got from Treetopia for a steal and I decided to challenge myself to see if I could decorate it for each holiday and/ or season. Well, so far so good! For Fall, it has dusty pink and gold decorations to go with my Think Pink Autumn Decor. Check out my Welcome Fall Cricut Shadow Box for a sneak peek at this fun color scheme!

Wood Fall Leaf Ornaments Steps
1: Open a new project in Cricut Design Space. Insert your SVG Fall words images or find some in Cricut Access. Resize them to fit inside of your leaf ornaments.
I used SVGs I got as part of the Splendid September Bundle on Hungry JPEG, but you can search on there for fall sayings and find great ones for cheap.
2: Cut out the words on the Cricut Stencil Vinyl and weed out the inside or positive spaces of the wording. Since we’re making stencils, it’s the opposite of what you’d normally do with vinyl. Make sure to leave the centers of looped letters like “O”.
3: Carefully place each stencil over each wood ornament and rub the vinyl down firmly against the wood, especially around the edges of the lettering. You may want to use some scrap pieces of stencil vinyl as transfer tape to make sure you get any loose bits.
4: Take paint dauber and lightly dip it into the paint and scrape off any excess paint. The key with stenciling (for me) is to use thick paint and lightly applied layers. Let the paint dry between each layer.
5: Once the paint is completely dry, gently pull up the stencil on each one of the ornaments.
6: If you like, you can swap out the jute hanging cord for some pretty gold ribbon or twine.
That’s it! Now you just need to find a place to hang your cute Wood Fall Leaf Ornaments. I know some people like to place some branches in a tall vase and hang ornaments from them. You could also put them on a longer string and make a beautiful banner with them. As for me, onto the Fall tree, they go! These are the only true ornaments I have hung on it. I painted some small orange pumpkins and gourds I had on hand with gold spray paint to place on it as well as some gold leaf clips. I know this color scheme isn’t for everyone, but I absolutely love it. I smile every time I walk into my dining room. So how would you use these fall ornaments?
