STRING A 10-MINUTE GARLAND
Who doesn’t love a 10-minute decoration? Katie Gaines at Love Paper Paint crafted this lettered leaf garland using leaves that had fallen from a magnolia tree in her front yard. Make your own with real or artificial leaves of your choice. With a white paint pen, write a letter on the front of each leaf to spell out a seasonal word or phrase. Let dry and then tie each stem onto a length of twine. String your garland across a mantel, doorway or wall for a festive fall look.
