Want to add a touch of shimmer to your fall home decor? This glittery DIY fall garland should do just the trick! This fall craft is simple and to make and a great one to get the kids involved with too!
This post is a total fail on my part.
The project turned out fabulously.
But, I took no pictures of how it came together.
I thought I did.
But, there was also a 15 month old running around with a can of spray paint in one hand and trying to pry the cap off with the other.
She is most definitely my offspring.
Maybe you understand why I have no pictures now?
But, here it is anyway.
A glittery fall garland for your fall decor.
I promise though, it was so stinkin’ simple.
I mean, really, if I can do this project with a 15 month old running around with a can of spray paint, anyone can do it.
I may be finding glitter in every little nook and cranny, but it was worth it.
How to Make a Fall Garland
I bought the acorns and pumpkins at Hobby Lobby for $0.50 each, plus 40% off, so they were cheap. I’m not good at math, you’ll have to compute that one on your own. They were just wood shapes, no glitter.
The fall leaves came from Michael’s. I had them left over from last year, like the pumpkins on my DIY Fall Door Decor. They were already glittery.
I used plain white glue and glitter to snaz up the acorns and pumpkins. I had a genius idea for writing fall on the acorns and putting them in the middle (and if you are sitting there counting my acorns and realizing there are only three, so I wouldn’t have enough room for fall and you are thinking geez, she can’t do math or spell, you’re wrong. I had another acorn, but opted to leave it off in the end), but the glitter glue and my penmanship just didn’t go together like rama lama lama ke ding a de dinga a dong.
If you can name that tune, you rock.
After finally finding an arrangement I liked, I drilled really small holes on each side of the acorns, leaves, and pumpkins with a small drill bit.
And guess what?
There is a picture of that:
Then, I used the tip of a pencil to push the ribbon through the holes.
I put a touch of green glitter on the pumpkin stems.
For the acorns, I used orange on the top and gold on the bottom.
