Handcrafting garland has been a favorite craft of mine this year. I should probably be adding more to the mantles, like matching candles and special holiday nick-nacks, but for now, I like the simplicity of banners. Plus, any time I avoid clutter, I consider it a win.
Curious about this garland? It was inspired by the DIY project over at Happy Clippings! Super easy and fun to work on while I watched TV. I got a little carried away, but I refused to toss any of the leaves I made, so I packed them on the mantle. I added a few of the autumn-ish colored baby cards we received for the arrival of Louie and ta-da! Our autumn mantle!
