Fall Garland

Fall is upon us and I think this is my favorite time of the year. Cooler weather, warm earthy colors and the transition from warm weather clothing to cool weather clothing. It is also time for comfort food, hot chocolate and time with family by the fire. Here in California we don't get that fall foliage folks do in the east coast; so we have to find ways to bring it into our home decorating! Here is a cheap way to do just that!

Go to your local dollar tree (love this store) and pick up some fake leaves. At 50 a pack you can't beat it!

Rev up that sewing machine of yours and find a complimentary thread color! I am rocking the orange with this one!

Lets get ready to sew! This is a great beginner sewing project. It does not require perfection.

As you have your foot gently on the foot press, feed those leaves through random like. Keep going till you get to your desired length.

After awhile you will get something like this...

Keep going! When your done knot off the ends and hang it up to enjoy.

Now sit in front of your new garland with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy your fabulously cheap and beautiful creation!

                                                               Happy crafting!
