Create the perfect neutral fall wall decor using supplies from your local craft store. This project is full of texture and seasonal charm.
The air is getting cooler and the itch to break out the fall decor is slowly creeping in. Inspired by this high end artwork that retails for over $500 I managed to recreate the look for less using around $40 worth of craft store supplies. Read on to see how I created the perfect neutral fall wall decor full of texture and charm.
This DIY neutral fall wall decor is seriously SUCH an easy project, and the end results looks like a million bucks! Be sure to check out my Pottery Barn Kids bookshelf dupe too!

Here’s a quick video of me assembling the fall wall decor project, and written instructions are included below.
Create Grass Bundles
I purchased a couple of different style dried grass bundles from my local craft store. My shadow box frame was 16 x 20 so I ended up only needing to use one bundle for this project.
I started by trimming off the fluffy ends of the grass. Then I cut the grass stems in half. If you are using a larger size frame you may want to keep them at the longer length.
Next I took anywhere from 5-6 pieces and bundled them together using some twine. This step really ended up being unnecessary as you will tie the embroidery floss around them next.
As you bundle them stems try to vary the lengths to provide a more natural and textured look.
Wrap the Bundles
Take the embroidery floss and tie one end in a knot around the bundle. Then just start wrapping the bundle until you achieve the desired look and thickness.
For mine, one package of embroidery floss was typically enough to wrap 3 bundles well.
Attach the bundles
Once all of your bundles are wrapped, you’ll need to attach them to the back of your frame. I chose this particular shadowbox because the back had a nice clean linen look with a little bit of cushion.
I started out using straight pins to attach the bundles, but ended up just using good old fashioned hot glue. The artwork has been hanging on my wall for well over a week at the time of this post, and I have not had any issue with the glue yet.
I hung the piece in my entryway, and I absolutely love all of the texture. This would be great to customize for any season or to match your own personal decor style.
