I have been getting my “craft on” for my fall Décor this season. I found this 15 ft. Burlap at Hobby Lobby already in a roll for $5.99 and I used a 40% coupon app so it came out to $3.60. They have the same roll in the Christmas section and the fall section with just the title fall or Christmas and it’s already 40% off, that way you can save your 40% coupon for something else. I have seen these garland go for over $25 on etsy and $25 at Hobby Lobby. No, I only do easy crafts so if I can do this — anyone can!
The way I gathered my burlap:I used florist wire. I first tried a needle with thicker string and it was just not working out well for me. I simply unrolled my burlap across my living room floor sat down and as I ran my wire through I bunched my burlap. Play with it – the closer you bunch, the tighter your garland will look. At the end of each wire I tied twine around it so It would look better when I tied up.
There you go another easy craft. They do have shimmer burlap that I thought was pretty, it does cost a few dollars more. Cant wait to put some pumpkins under my garland!
I don’t know about you guys but I am so excited fall is approaching. Fall means cozy sweaters, Pumpkin Spice lattes, corn mazes, and my favorite crafting and baking! With that being said: Yes, I want to be the crazy neighbor that wants to decorate her porch for the fall in August. However, I have been forbidden by my husband at least until September. He’s no fun, but I can at least start gathering up ideas and start crafting!
I’m not the only crazy person out there because fall décor is hitting retailers and is already going fast. If you want to get a head start for your porch and home décor. So far on my search for treasures I noticed: Hobby Lobby is full of fall, Jo Ann Fabrics has some and they also have primitive fall décor if you’re on a hunt for that. Tuesday Morning has adorable fall décor and great Halloween Décor (they also had witch dolls that were amazing at my Tuesday Morning). ACMoore has a pretty good selection but I think a better Halloween selection. Don’t forget about Dollar Tree, I found a 6 pack of fall colors crafting glitter after I paid double that for only 3 colors at Hobby Lobby. They also have fall flowers and other goodies. I haven’t been to Kirkland’s yet to see what they have in but they always have cute fall décor.
If your a visual person like me, here are some of my favorite fall porches that I love. You can take bits and pieces of what you like and create your own look. Keep in mind if you’re looking for pallets or crates: check craigslist first! If you can’t find crates all the craft stores have them starting at $9.99 and up. Also at JoAnn’s you can use a coupon. If you want hay stacks or corn husk find a CO-OP or local nursery by you for the best deal. My husband taught me that one! I will update this post with my own porch once I’m allowed!
Looking at this porch just makes me happy! Pumpkins, mums, and a scarecrow, it is all just beautiful. Via Between Naps On The Porch Continue reading →
