STRING A 10-MINUTE GAR­LAND

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY KATIE GAINES OF LOVEPAPERPAINT.COM.

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.

GET HELP If you’re not com­fort­able hand­writ­ing your let­ters, try sten­cils or even out­line a stick-on let­ter.
