Not letting "no time" be an excuse anymore. ...now if I could just work on the whole "sanity" bit.

When I buy a house someday I totally want to do this project. It is so blooming cool. How do you starch fabric to walls? Is there a tutorial you used? Can you re-use the leaves and balls from previous seasons? I have never heard of such a thing before but the possibilities are blossoming in my brain.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

You should!  THanks Smiley  I have seen where people have used liquid starch - like for laundry - and it worked, but I haven't tried it on my walls.  I have tried it on something else and it didn't work.  So, I just boil a couple cups of water, I add it to a big bowl with  a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cornstarch (I'm an eyeballer, sorry...no exact measurements here), and make sure you whisk it in slowly and thoroughly to try to get all the lumps out.  Then I usually add another cup or two of cold water so that I don't have to wait forever to let that boiled water cool before I start sticking my hand and fabric in it.  I grab my cut out fabric, get it saturated, ring it out, slap it out on the wall.  Smooth it out or it will be bumpy - how it goes up is how it's going to stay until you rip it off.  Yes, you can totally re-use the fabric.  I plan on it.  It's just really stiff, but when it's wet again, it will be completely fine!  Yay!!  I'm actually thinking of putting giant panels of fabric on my walls this way, but haven't found a piece that I love enough to do it.  The possibilities really are endless with this technique!

Summer Tree is my new favorite.

Thanks Smiley  I like it too  Cheesy  And it will last me late into the season! Wohoo!

Has anyone tried flannel backed vinyl?  I hate my ugly white rented kitchen cabinets.

I love how it's an apple tree this year. Add a few yellow leaves in a month or two, and you don't have to change it up for fall!  You are so talented, and this project totally should be featured on one of the big DIY-decorator blogs, if it hasn't already.

I LOVE this!  I love how you change it up, too.  My two favorites are the little pink flowers and the autumn tree.  Nice work!
