Easy DIY Gather Garland for Thanksgiving

Sometimes, holidays can sneak up on you, depending on what you have going on in life at the moment.

But, there is something sad about skipping a holiday altogether. So, what’s a girl to do?

I have found that hanging a garland of some sort is the best I can do some year. Well, that and a festive dessert to commemorate said holiday.

But, that’s another blog post.

  • Cover each of our letters in glue and glitter.
  • Let dry.
  • Meanwhile, print out about six oak leaves on the cream card stock.
  • Take 2 plain pieces of card stock under each printed piece and cut out three at a time. I used about 18 leaves for my project.
  • Once the letters are dry, hot glue them to singular leaves.
  • Arrange the other leaves along a ribbon for hanging and add in the lettered leaves. I bent the non-lettered leaves down the middle to give a little more shape to the garland.
  • Glue everything in place with the hot glue.
  • Hang on mantle, window, armoire, mirror, bookshelf, bed frame, etc.
  • Enjoy!
