If you have some scrap wood lying around, you can make a fall shelf sitter from the wood blocks! We are currently building a new deck for our pool, so we have leftover pieces from the deck rails that we are building. I snatched up a couple of them to make a cute fall shelf sitter! 

Supplies Needed for this Project :

  • Scrap wood
  • Sand paper or sanding block
  • Paint in your color choice and brush
  • Antique stain
  • Baby wipes
  • Wooden letters from Hobby Lobby
  • Twine
  • Paper Sunflowers
  • Wood glue
  • Hot glue gun and glue

The scrap wood that I used were these 2×2’s from our deck build. One was six inches and the other was five inches.

After sanding any sharp edges, I used orange chalk paint on the wood pieces. I wanted it to have a pumpkin feel for my fall decor.

Next, I sanded the edges again to give it a rustic appearance.

To finish off the wood pieces, I wiped them down with a bit of the antique wax to age them even further.

Have you seen these wooden words in the scrapbook section of Hobby Lobby? They are stickers, so they work perfectly for this project! I did hit them with a little bit of hot glue still to set them.

To attach the wood pieces to each other, I used wood glue and hot glue. The wood glue is permanent and the hot glue is instant.

Twine is one of my favorite things to craft with! I feel like most of my projects have some sort of twine involved. Lol The edges of my shelf sitter got wrapped in twine for this one.

Then I added a sunflower to the twine! I love how it looks!
