FALL MINI SUBWAY ART

I love subway art and I don't know why I haven't done any before, but this is my first!  I wanted to start small and see how it went.
It was kind of fun to make!  I've had these fall stickers forever...
It's one sheet, but it has "back to school", "Halloween", "Thanksgiving" and "Fall" words.  
I also had this little tin sign that I got on clearance at JoAnn's a couple of years ago for something really crazy like a quarter.  It had an ugly rusty wire in it that I just clipped out.  
I made a copy of the sticker sheet and just cut out the words and laid them on the sign to see how they would fit.
After trimming a few of the actual stickers, I just put them on the tin, added a few beads for some sparkle and then strung a few fall beads on a pretty copper wire adding a small leaf charm on one side.
I'm pretty happy with it.  I think I'll do a bigger one for Halloween!
I put it up on my shelf next to my little fall flower pots where I had my fall wreath.
Which is better on that shelf?  The sign or the wreath?
Linking up to any or all of these fine parties:

  1. Both are cute! You could switch up depending on your mood or decor. What's subway art, anyway? It must have been the "rage" or "fad" at one time, taking on a unique meaning of it's own. It probably originated in New York city where almost every "hip" thing starts.

  3. This is so cute. I love your shelf, the flowers look great and the letters spelling out autumn are great. I think I'm leaning towards the wreath a little bit, but only because it occupies more of the space. They book are really nice.

  4. You have inspired me to do some seasonal subway art! I like the wreath better for it's size but the sign would be cute leaning up against one of the pots. Pinning this! ~ Maureen

  6. Cheap projects always seem to be the best one's don't they?! I really like the full of comfort feeling the wreath gives that space, but also like the simple look of the subway art sign.

  12. Never thought of using all those pieces of scrapbook script as subway art. That's the way to start. Did you try hanging the wreath over the sign so the sign is centered in the middle of the wreath? I often hang wreaths over my framed pictures.

    The UGLY rusty wire!?! I have to pay extra to get already rusty wire for projects :>)

  13. I do love the sign, but I'm obsessed with wreathes. Could you combine the two to display on your shelf?

  14. Hi, Thanks for following me, I came across to take a look and wow, awesome stuff! I can't decide, I'm loving them both and actually I'm not usually a fan of wreaths but I love it and the sign is awesome. I'm on the fence, very helpful, I know. Following you back - something tells me you're going to be a great decor reference!

  17. That's really cute! I haven't seen any subway art with stickers before just printables, your sign looks great! I like the sign instead of the wreath. And I really dig your scrabble sign.

  24. Awww it turned out sweet! I like the proportions of your wreath with the shelf but this little cutie needs to be displayed! I can imagine it around a vase or basket of fall foliage.

  27. I like both, with the shelf, but now I'm hung up on your subway art, so if I had to choose, then the subway art. of course by now you probably have several new projects on the shelf, or it has moved. Pinning the subway, so cute ~ Amy
