AUTUMN GARLAND ~
Autumn is such a fun season to make decorations for your home. I made a simple pumpkin garland using canvas, burlap and twine. However, you can use felt, paper, cardboard, etc. for your pumpkins instead of the canvas to make this garland.
Another layer of orange paint in a lighter shade.
Added lines with a dark orange permanent marker to give it a touch of realism.
Originally, I was going to sew the pumpkins to the twine. Then, I decided glue was a better option for this project. I rarely use a glue gun because I always burn myself and this was no exception!!! However, it made for a quick bond to adhere the twine to the canvas. Tacky glue would be a great alternative when making this project with kids (or if you want to avoid the step of burning your fingers). 🙂
I hope this DIY Autumn Garland project inspires you to redeem materials you have around your home and make them into new creations for less to bless hearts and homes. ♥
