Fall will officially be here in less than two weeks! I’ve been cozying up my rooms with warm colors for the autumn season. I saw beautiful bird prints in round black frames that I loved, but didn’t purchase them due to their price. Instead, I decided to make my own. And what’s more … I have the vintage bird printables here on my blog that you can download to make your own!
Today I’m joining several bloggers to bring you a variety of free printables! You’ll find the links to all of their projects at the end of this post. A special thanks to Kristen at Ella Claire for organizing this creative adventure.
I paired my vintage bird printables with amber brown bottles from my collection – you saw part of that collection on my fall mantel last week. I loved that I saved money with this project and this artwork was so easy to make!
Brown birds are layered over a vintage script background to give them an aged appearance. The links to the free printables are at the end of this post.
You’ll first want to find your frames. I opted for oval black frames instead of round ones. I liked these because they have a soft raised swirl with a touch of gold. I found my frames at Hobby Lobby for under $10 each – they’re not plastic, either.
Most picture frames have a piece of cardboard or foam inside to hold the glass in place. Use the oval insert to trace the shape and size of the frame on the vintage bird printables.
Cut out the bird printable and assemble the frame.
Next comes the fun part of hanging the vintage bird printables on the wall and adding decor to create a fall vignette.
Vining bittersweet beneath the prints echoes the warm colors of leafy branches tucked in a favorite ironstone pitcher.
I pulled my vintage bumblebee print in its rustic black frame out of storage and layered it over an old gold frame that I’ve had for many years.
And of course, beautiful amber bottles that glow when the sunlight hits them.
I hope you enjoy my vintage bird printables! It’s an easy project (and economical too) for adding the warmth of the autumn season to your home.
