If you decorate with neutrals for fall, paint them white or cream and accent with a desired color. I like to decorate with the traditional colors of fall, so I used orange paint.

  1. These are SO DANG CUTE, Paula! So smart, affordable, and easy! And I love that they can be painted for any decor palette! Pinned!

  2. These are so clever and cute. I like that you didn’t make these opaque and left some wood showing.

    Ysy we are getting a dollar tree soon.

    Hopefully it’s filled with fun stuff. Our other Dollar stores unfortunately are filled with junk.

  3. Paula, these are absolutely adorable and such a clever craft, overall. Way to think outside the BLOCK! 😉 Hoping you have a lovely fall, friend! xoxo,kristi
