I just love fall. The pumpkins, the costumes, the crunchy leaves. The whole thing. It is one of my favorite times to add some color and texture to my home decor. At the Funny Little House I had loads of space to decorate seasonally, but here in Alabama not so much. Less is more is the current motto! Therefore, this month’s craft is a simple Where the Wild Things Are printable for you to use in your home. You are going to love it!

In case you missed them, here are a few of the projects from earlier this year. Enjoy!

This month’s challenge is. . . . MONSTER MOVIES!
I’m not a big fan of horror movies, so it was a bit of a challenge to choose a movie. Then I remembered that a couple of years ago, one of my favorite children’s books was made into a film – Where The Wild Things Are. And honestly, these are the best monsters ever!
Who can forget this wonderful story of Max and the Wild Things? And how they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth? The warriors love this story – and so do I!
Since I already enjoy decorating our home with pumpkins and acorns, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something new. How about adding monsters to your fall decor with a Where the Wild Things Are printable?
What a fun way to add monsters to your fall decor!
I want to tell you how I created this printable, so if you ever want to make one of your own, you can. I found the clip art for the monster online. Whenever I use images that I get online, I always check the copyright info to be sure it is safe to use. This one had a personal use copyright which I took to mean that I could use it for myself, as long as I wasn’t going to sell it.
I designed the Where the Wild Things Are printable in PicMonkey but you could certainly use PowerPoint, Word, or Canva. Whatever is easiest for you. My goal was to create something similar to subway art, with a fall feel to it.
When the design was finished, I simply saved it as a pdf. Then, I took this pdf to my local office supply store and had them print it out for me on 11″ x 17″ paper. The printable is designed with a bit of extra space on top and bottom so that it will fit in an 11″ x 14″ frame perfectly.
I just thrilled with how this turned out and I hope you love it too! Please check out the other awesome bloggers that participate with me on this challenge each month. You won’t be disappointed.
