{Project Home} DIY Dollar Store Fall Garland

In the next installment of the great Fall update, I grabbed a bag of Fall leaves from my local Dollar Tree and decided to make a quick and easy Fall garland! I simply lined up the leaves, red and green alternating, used a small piece of tape to hold them together for the time being, and sewed a simple stitch through the center. The project took me less than 30 minutes and I was happy with the result!

It’s starting to look like Fall around here! You know, until all Halloween starts breaking out. And yes, that’s right around the corner.
