A quick, cheap and easy idea to get your cabinets ready for fall!! I made a quick trip to Dollar Tree and was able to transform my Kitchen cabinets into an integral part of my Fall decor. For my whole kitchen I purchased 7 2-packs of clip on leaves, each 2-pack was…. wait for it…… $1.00!! I also found 9 ft. rolls of 2 in. burlap ribbon which were also just $1.00 each. I ended up using about 4 of those. The only other item I used was some packing tape which I already had. $11.00 plus tax and the Kitchen cabinets were all decked out for Fall!!
It’s helpful to take a quick measurement, which doesn’t have to be perfect, just to get an idea of how much ribbon you are going to need to buy. I didn’t do this and ended up having to go back up there midway through my project because it ran out. One of these times I will learn my lesson. When measuring don’t forget that you need about 3 inches extra on the top and bottom to wrap around the back of the door for the tape.
Once the ribbon is cut and attached to the back of the cabinet door with tape as pictured, decide where you would like to clip on your leaves. I like mine towards the middle but the cabinets are not all the same height. Measure from the bottom of the cabinet doors a desired height. I went with 11 inches from the bottom of all cabinet doors so i had consistency with placement and they weren’t all up and down.Once you get your spot picked for the leaf, take some scissors and cut about a half inch slice into the center of the ribbon.
The next step is to very gently clip on the leaves into the slice you made in the ribbon. I staggered my leaves so they were facing opposite directions and weren’t all facing the same way but you should try both ways to see which way you think looks best for your Kitchen.
There you have it!! In under 30 minutes and less than $15.00 we brought in some beautiful Fall colors to our Kitchen. You can put your own spin on this by using colored ribbon, different clips, add bows or just use the ribbon alone. The options are limitless!!
I hope you enjoyed this quick, cheap and easy idea to get your cabinets ready for Fall. Happy Decorating!!
