DIY Blessings Acorn Garland
This project was inspired by a three-dimensional garland I saw which made me want to make my own that could be adapted for multiple uses.
Resize and Adapt for Many Fall Projects
This project can be used to decorate a wall or an archway for a fall harvest gathering or a Thanksgiving celebration. It could easily be adapted for use on a simple grass wreath form, on a board as a sign, or as a scrapbook page to hold pictures of your event or to highlight pictures of kiddos enjoying the fall leaves, fall activities, and warm chocolatey drinks, and can be resized almost any size you want (I think 12 by 12 inch acorns would be hugely fun, don’t you?!).
String Together with Raffia, Twine, or String
If you can’t find or don’t like raffia for hanging the garland, try jute twine or cotton string. Clothespins could be replaced simply with a quarter-inch strip of paper looped around the raffia and adhered to the back of each acorn as with tabbed curtains. Substitute some of the wonderful Digital Papers from the Pazzles Craft Room for a unique look. Substitute other letters to incorporate into a welcome home, congratulations, wedding or baby shower, or other fall celebrations such as football parties or birthdays.
