DIY Felt Fall Garland

The decorations in my house are constantly changing.

I usually decorate the mantle and a few other parts of the house specifically around the different holidays throughout the year.

I don’t go all out. I usually do something easy and make it a project I can keep from year to year. (I have big tupperware bins labeled by holiday in my basement – therefore each year I have a few more pieces to pull out and it gets easier and easier!)

In fact, this year I only let myself buy one autumn decoration.

I bought this pumpkin from Home Goods! For items that are on the larger side, I always go for seasonal – not holiday specific. This pumpkin is about 18 inches tall.

Remember this autumn wreath I made last year?

I had some leftover pieces of felt in my craft bin and this idea was brought to life.

Within an hour I had:

1. Found some leaf and acorn shaped cookie cutters (from the Target dollar bin)

2. Traced on several colored pieces of felt with a fine Sharpie

3. Cut them out and laid them out in the order I wanted them to hang

4. I hand stitched them together with little knots

Then I hung it up on my mantle with my trusty blue painters tape. Voila.

I think this will transition us from fall to winter – because, yikes, I can’t believe winter is almost here!

  1. Lovely! It’s so funny to read all the bloggers from my American blogging friends b/c you guys are all into hardcore Thanksgiving mode where as us Canucks had it in October along with Halloween, so we’re in full blown Christmas mode. It’s a little too crazy already. I am like the leaves are still falling off of trees people!
