Another super easy and cheap project to brighten up your walls for the Holidays or Thanksgiving I should say. This cost me under $10 dollars. And although I don't have a step by step photo tutorial I'll do my best to describe the process.
Branch- I got from my back yard. I got rid of any critters it might of had by placing in in the tub with super hot water, some bleach and left it for 45 min.
Leaf garland- very easy to make! I used felt that I purchased in Joann for .33 a piece. I then traced leaf patterns, cut them up and sewed the with yarn. If you don't have a sewing machine you can easily stitch them together. I used this tutorial here for inspiration.
Banner- For the banner I used burlap, which can be purchased at any fabric store. I got mine at Joann's for around $4 a yard. (if you have a smartphone be sure to download there app, they always have coupons) I used the same felt for the garland and made my own stencil letters, simply find a font that . you like, (I use fonts that could be cut easily) and sew it to the burlap. As far as the burlap goes you can cut it many different shapes. Check these out here. And that's it! Easy right?
(I just came back from Joann and bought all the table decor for 70% off)
Don't forget! Only 4 more days to participate!
