I know that Michael's and AC Moore has most of their seasonal decor on sale, but in my mind it's still pricey. Plus, a trip to any of my local craft stores isn't so local. It takes a good 30-40 minutes just to get over there. HA!
With twins...maybe even longer. So...I have to be creative and looks else where for my decor.
I bought these leaves for $3 at the store the other day...when I got home, my mind started spinning with all of the ideas I had in store for them. I knew that I wanted something on my mantel and thought...GARLAND!!!!!
So this is what I did:
Some tan thread, a needle, and some of these awesome leaves.
Obviously, you can make yours whatever length you want to fit where ever you're going to put the garland. I think that it looks just as fancy as the garland that the craft stores sell for what, $7-8?
