31 Days: Creative Habit – Day 30: Fall Leaf Garland

Full Disclosure: I’ve been busy all day working on Halloween costumes, so I’m going to post an old project. It’s something I made last year but never posted. I added new pics today from the new house, so it’s not COMPLETELY old.


Last year’s garland in this year’s home. :)

Last year, after I made my Fall Leaves Wreath, I had some leftover leaves.


I punched holes in the corners of each leaf and threaded brown ribbon through the holes.


In the old house, I tied the ribbon in a loop and strung the garland around a mirror in my entryway.


It lived right by Edgar Allan Crow’s home in the branches by the front door.


Wait, I’ve never introduced you to Edgar Allan Crow? We bought him YEARS ago for a Halloween, and he never left. I don’t really notice him, but I’m sure visitors wonder why the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks we have a crow right by the entryway year round. I know my friend who is FREAKED OUT by birds shudders every time she comes over. But he’s sort of become our little mascot. He even gets fancied up for Christmas!


Anyway, Edgar found residence by our front door as soon as we moved into the new house. He loves to watch passersby out the front windows and keep guard over the incoming mail.


And here’s the new home of the leaf garland – draped across the mantle in the new house.


The mantle is still a work-in-progress, as is everything else in the house. I feel like we just moved in, even though it’s been over two months. It still takes 20 minutes to find almost everything. There is no real plan for house projects at this point.


But I have up my fall garland, so I guess that’s something.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about Halloween costumes! And it will be my last post for 31 Days. See you then!

    1. Gee, that was fast! I didn’t think I had posted it yet. :) Thanks, friend. Those chairs are my new favorites – especially since they match my garland.
