Fall Themed Garland
- Clothes Pins
- Assorted Acrylic Paints in Fall Colors
- White Denim Fabric
- Craft Brushes
- Jute Twine
- Thumb tacks
The first thing I did was to paint the clothes pins in fall colors such as brown, burgundy, yellow and orange. I was surprised at how quickly the wood clothes pins soaked up the paint so it actually took three coats to fully cover each pin.
Next, I threaded the jute twine through the clothes pins by inserting the twine through the small hole in the center of the clothes pin, then wrapping the twine around the pin once and looping it through to make a knot before continuing the process through another pin.
I had originally planned to make fall themed cutouts like leaves from the bright fall colored fabric, but just couldn’t “picture” it in my mind so I opted for a different look. Instead, I cut a small square from the white denim ribbon from my stash (I have used this for so many other projects and love it). Then I traced and cut out banner type triangles out of each square.
Plant Smiles, Grow Giggles, Harvest Love
My inspiration for the next part of the project I actually saw on a dish towel and I have adapted it for my own project. It is an adorable quote that says, “Plant Smiles, Grow Giggles, Harvest Love”. Using a pencil to write the letters, it was so easy to create my own version of this saying and then painting over it with the brown acrylic paint. I hand painted the pumpkins and leaves.
