Over the weekend, I started to add a few more fall touches to the living room and dining room. I really liked the way the garland looked on the wine rack for the 4th of July and Easter, but didn’t find any fall garland I really liked. So I decided to make my own easy fall garland instead. Really, this was so simple and took about 15 minutes. My kind of DIY!
What you’ll need:
- Jute twine
- Cocktail napkins (mine are a cute fall pattern and a hostess gift from a friend)
- Decide how long you want the twine and tie off on either side (hint: I use clear Command hooks). The twine should be somewhat taut as the napkins will weigh it down some
- Draw the shape you want to cut on one napkin – I cut mine into triangles, using a pen to draw the lines.
- Cute out the shape, and use as a template to cut the others
- Split the napkins in half and hang over the twine
And, that’s it! I ended up needed five triangles, but use your judgement on how many you want and how much space you want in between each one. This would also be great on a mantle for a baby or wedding shower. I don’t know about you, but I seem to have an endless supply of cocktail napkins and I love having another use for them.
