Fall Decor with the Silhouette

I am so ready for fall! While it's still pretty warm outside, I recently took down the summer decor and am slowing putting out the fall. Maybe if I get ready for fall, Mother Nature will follow! 

I was a little bored with my fall decor so I decided to make a couple of new things and am sharing these cute fall luminaries with you today. 

These luminaries were super easy to make thanks to Silvia, my Silhouette machine and took less than 20 minutes. I started off with this file for autumn luminaries from the Silhouette store. I then cut it out of a rust and olive colored card stock. I put some vellum on the inside of the luminary where the leaves are cut out. Then I assembled my luminaries securing them with a strong adhesive, popped a battery operated candle inside, and was done! 

Super easy and cute on the mantle!
