It's Fall!


It's Fall, the temperature has finally dropped, & the leaves are changing colors. I grew up in South Texas where the weather doesn't really allow for 4 seasons. When I moved to North Texas I was amazed by all the beautiful colors of the leaves during Fall. 
Last year my family made a Tree of Thanks. This year I couldn't find the paper leaves we used last year so I bought a pack of fabric leaves at the dollar store. The problem is, they were too small for the boys to write on, and when you do the markers bleed. The leaves were too pretty to toss out so I decided to turn them into a garland. 
I spent the morning running leaves one by one through the sewing machine. I was able to make enough garland to hang on the fireplace, in the entry way and the small hall doorway. It was so easy to do, I'm already thinking about what kind of garland I want to make for Christmas.

Here's what you need to make your own:
Fabric leaves
Sewing machine

Step 1:
Run leaves one by one through the sewing machine.

Step 2:
Hang garland and enjoy!
