Easy Hobby Lobby Fall Banner AND My Fall Covered Patio Decor

September 20, 2021

I found this cloth blank banner/flag at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas Craft area.  It has a stiff plastic or coated backing.  Do you ever wonder how to decorate these craft blanks?  

I will show you how I finished my banner, and then my decorated fall covered patio decor!

I removed the string and dowel from my Hobby Lobby Banner.  Next, I brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Putty.  I think this paint color takes on a burlap look.

I didn't paint the back. Just the front and edges.

I will only be using the taller pumpkin graphic for this project.

I centered the pumpkin on the banner and taped it down with blue painter's tape.

I then pounced on the pumpkin bottom using Decoart Chalky Finish Paint in Heritage.  I stenciled the stem and leaf onto the banner with Fusion Mineral Paint in Bayberry.  I used a thin bristled stencil brush for the small stencil areas along with blue tape to tape around multicolored areas.

I then grabbed another stencil from last fall from Old Sign Stencils, You Pick Orchard.

I used only "you pick" and "5 cents LB" this time, along with Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash.  To seal the paints, I sprayed Dixie Belle Easy Peasy Spray Wax on, waited a about 20 seconds, and wiped it with a fiber rag. 

All of the Old Sign Stencils coordinate so well together!

I ditched the original string, and opted for jute tied on my dowel.

Now, let's look at the rest of my fall covered patio decor!

Three more of my recent fall projects on the covered patio include, my wooden canister pumpkin, my slatted crate pumpkin, and my leaf stenciled folding chair.

Colorful and fun!

On top of a 20 gallon Redwing crock table sits a fall stenciled fruit crate filled with faux pumpkins, a zinc vase with berries, a vintage orange thermos, and my flannel covered books.

Above the crate, hanging with a magnet, (on steel siding) is my pie tin pumpkin project.

Also, around the 20 gallon crock is a smaller crock with garden hand tools and a wooden daisy, a garden fork, and a grain scoop filled with small pumpkins and a faux plant.
