Hi there Pebbles Friends! It’s Leanne here today sharing a super easy idea to help set your table with Fall Décor. This time of year is starting to get really busy and we would all like to simplify things if we can, right? So why not decorate with same goal in mind. Today I want to share this cute Paper Bag Fall Décor idea. Use it as a table/name placement setting or just as a cute way to set the table. Either way, it will only take a few minutes to pull it all together.
Gather your supplies:
- brown paper bags
- Pebbles Inc Simple Life & Heart of Home collections
- Pebbles Inc Wood Veneer shapes
- American Crafts slick writer pen
- linen napkins (optional)
Paper Bag Fall Decor
The first step is to create the word “thankful” in a brush script or hand lettering font. If you are not confident in using your own hand writing, here’s a little trick…
1: Download a free hand lettering font to use on your computer. Type out the word/s you would like to use and print to actual size you require.
2-5: Trim the printout to the size where the paper bag when folded, will sit snug in the pocket.
6: Trace over the word with pencil
7: Repeat step 6 with a Slick Writer pen.
8: Insert a napkin into the paper bag to create depth for the twine/string to wrap around twice.
9: Fussy cut flowers or other images from the Pebbles Inc Simple Life paper collection. Use foam tape for added dimension and to secure the twine to the paper bag.
10: To complete the look for your Fall Décor table setting, slip your cutlery into the paper bag, on top of the napkin.
Other alternatives using this idea is to secure the Simple Life wood veneer shapes to the twine.
If you find the brown paper bag is too plain, you can simply make your own napkin pocket with a pretty 12″x12″ sheet of patterned paper. Fold the paper at 7″ from the bottom and 3.5″ from each side. This size pocket will easily accommodate a single napkin. Decorate using more fussy cut images, twine and wood veneer, similar to the paper bag Fall décor.
Simplifying the decorating process has never been easier!
