It's (Almost) Fall Y'all - Autumn Garlands

In honor of the upcoming Autumnal Equinox and the First Day of Fall, I made some fall garland/banners. These are in the style of my Easter garlands, you can see HERE. I had a lot of trial and error to get the leaves the way I liked, and I may still change them up a bit, but I like the swirls on everything. It reminds me of the fall wind blowing the leaves around...

Long Banner, great addition to your fall mantle decor

Short Banner, great for the entry way or kitchen

Vertical Banner - Oh this one is my favorite!!
The first two are traditional horizontal banners, long and short, for decorating the mantle and entry way. I used the jute twine and various ribbons coordinating with the Regals and Brights Designer Series Paper Stacks. I used the Pumpkin Pie from the Brights for the Pumpkins. with a stem of Baked Brown Sugar and a vine of Old Olive Cardstock. The Leaves use the Regals paper in a variety of colors, some Real Red thrown in from the Brights pack. These creations are held together using the new Stampin' Up! Handheld Stapler, as well as the permanent Glue Dots. They are delicate looking, but pretty darn sturdy! I boxed up my Easter garland, and look forward to enjoying it next year!!

No tutorial on these... yet! I am making a few for the upcoming craft fair, so look for more info next week. :-) They are not too difficult, but a bit time consuming. Easy enough to prep while you watch your shows though!!

Enjoy the weekend! I'm off to browse the Harvest Festival with the kids - that should be enough adventure to last me a while! LOL

Happy Crafting!
