Fall & Pinterest

Fall is here!
It’s currently 60 degrees out, cloudy, raining, I’m sipping on a home made mocha in comfy pants with my Ugg slippers and I couldn’t be happier.
I’m obsessed with Pinterest! Whoever thought up this concept was brilliant (and must be a stay at home mom!) 
I love all the projects I have found, recipes, home decorating tips, etc… I love seeing what my friends are working on what meals they are loving making for their families! 
I found this really cute garland a while ago…

found here

I knew I didn’t have time or patience to cut out leaves like this.  So I found pre-cut felt leaves in the colors I wanted from a seller on Etsy.com. Last night I got down to business. I didn’t hand sew mine like this one. I just sewewd them up on my machine. Then added a yellow ribbon on the back & did a zigzag patern all the way thru to hopefully make it look a little more like a leaf!

I love how it turned out. For $4  & 30 mins. at the machine, I think this is one of my favorite projects!

I’m planning on hanging words from the leaves when November gets here of what we are all thankful for! I think it will look great.

I also bought a pack of snowflakes from the same seller. So stay tuned for our winter window!!!!

  1. Oooooh I love it! Love the idea of adding things you're thankful for at Thanksgiving as well as making one out of snowflakes for Christmas/Winter! πŸ™‚ Could be a Christmas card holder?? Hmmm….I may have to make one now too!!
