Our Biker Chicks have been busy altering items especially for Fall and we think they have some pretty fantastic ideas to inspire you with our Acorn Hollow collection...
When creating a project for seasonal display in your home, look beyond a frameable project and lean into the more dimensional art with an altered item. Here, I’ve altered a chalkboard from my husband’s childhood by adhering embellishments directly onto the slate and frame of the board. If you use glue dots to adhere your items, you can even pull them back off after the season is over and create a new one for the next season!
The embellishments can even be recycled back into your stash or taken right from the altered item and place onto a layout using the same design, just replacing the center sentiment with a photo or two. If you’re looking for a more permanent option, I recommend using a hot glue gun to adhere your embellishments.

I bought these small milk bottle-shaped vases at Target's Dollar Spot some time ago. They came with rub on words that said "live", "love" and "laugh". Over time the letters started flaking off (well, washing them may have had something to do with that, LOL) and I put them aside with the intention that I would alter them "some day". When I was given the assignment to create an altered project for today's blog post, I knew exactly what I was going to do. With just a few supplies from the Acorn Hollow collection, I was able to transform these cuties from drab to fab and I now have some cute fall decor to boot! Let's take a closer look at the individual pieces...
This one uses just three pieces from the Paper Crafting Kit and a small band of patterned paper from the 6x6 Paper Pad.
Uses the same supplies as the first piece with a scrap of twine added in to finish it off.
This last example uses leaves from the Paper Crafting Kit and one of the 5 Things Pockets (number 3 because we're a family of 3).
So there you have it. A simple and fun fall decor project. :)
