Having just moved into a new home with a fabulous mantle, I am excited to decorate it for every holiday I can. For fall, I thought a simple garland would be fun. And it is so easy too.
All you need is some twine, a pair of craft scissors, some leaves, and glitter. Or you can use these foam glitter leaves I used and cut out a step (got mine in the Target $1 bin!).
First, glitter your leaves – or if you use already glittered leaves, go to step two. Using small craft scissors, poke a hole in the leaf large enough for the twine to fit through. String the twine through each hole until you have all the leaves you want. Space them out the length of the garland you want. Then hang it. Perfect mantle decoration!
Simple, easy, and fun. And aside from the part with the scissors, this is something you can make with the kiddos too.
