fall decorating

IMG_6769

I have a hard time decorating for Thanksgiving….its the awkward stage between Halloween and Christmas. I bought some felt sheets at my last trip to the craft store, cut some circles out and sewed them together one after another to make a quick fall-ish garland. Cheap…fast…and really easy. To make it extra fall-ish you could cut out leaf shapes and it would be even cuter. Now when can I decorate for Christmas? I’ll give it one week and then I’m bustin’ out my bins.

*Stiches n’ Giggles just got their new shop up and running today. The best part? She allows 1/4 yard cuts or fat quarter cuts!!! Enter promo code newstore4u to get 10% off.

I like your garland.
This time of year is so full of decorating inspiration, and like you I get eager to *deck the halls!*
Happy Holidays!

Very neat idea. Thanksgiving is Halloween decor without the scary...Thankful we made it through the monsters, I think.

Cute stuff! We grew little mini pumpkins, and they are by far my favorite fall decoration.

Sweet! Did you cut the circles by hand? I love my Cuttlelbug and circle dies... they're great for penny rugs! And I love the leaf idea... maybe little punkins too?

I totally skipped over Thanksgiving and have already started decorating for Christmas. Just a few little things out here and there, a wreath I made, you can see it here http://shescraftyshesjustmytype.blogspot.com/2010/11/inspired-ideas-christmas-issue.html, and a santa claus guy sitting on the mantel. I haven't gotten the bins out yet. Probably after Thanksgiving.

Happy decorating :)
