Happy of happiest Fridays to you all! I am so excited for the weekend to start & to kick it off, we are watching The Patriot tonight while drinking Oregon Chai tea! Yum!
Today, I wanted to share two fall garland projects. They both are very inexpensive! The first one is what I like to call "Falling Pinecone"... All this required was a branch, some pinecones, white paint, and fishing wire. The first thing I did was bake the pinecones at 200 degrees F for about 45 minutes because that is what Pinterest told me to do. Haha, but really, it is supposed to kill any pinecone bugs that may be hiding! Next, I put some white paint in a container and dipped each pinecone halfway. Then I laid them on newspaper to dry. Once dried, I tied the bottom of the pinecone with the clear fishing wire and then strung each one on the branch. Finally, I hung the branch with the fishing wire & cream colored yarn (just so you can see it better). It was a very fun project and I really like the results!
Yesterday, there was a craft day with the Law Wives, put on by a very sweet friend, Paige. We made fall banners & so I thought I would share what I did. I didn't pay for any of these materials, but I know they are very cheap! First off, I cut out mini circles (not all are perfect, but I like it) & then I used a hot glue gun to glue the circles onto some white twine. REALLY easy & there is no sewing involved, which is perfect for me! Both these projects probably took me a couple of hours & they are so cute! I hope you guys enjoy & have a marvelous weekend!
