I wanted a letter-y fall garland for over my sink, but did not want to cut it freehand or waste time (and paper) making and printing it out!
I have Dollar Tree!
I found this very halloween-y garland that would perfect for a party,
but was a little too much for my house or style.
I hung and spray-painted the garland black
After it dried, I carefully cut the letters out of the garland, giving the letters a more simple look. I poked two holes in each letter with a bamboo skewer and strung it onto some dollar store jute I had in my stash.
You might notice that the sign no longer says “Happy Halloween,”
to do this, I took the one of the E’s, trimmed it a bit to make an F, and used the “ALL” in Halloween to make “FALL.”
You could easily use this for both fall and halloween if you save the remaining letters and piece of the E, reattach it with a bit of tape, and restring it.
I love the little touch it adds to my kitchen!
All real leaves, apples, pumpkins, and squash.
Everything is edible and carve-able, except the leaves of course. 😉
Have I gone pumpkin crazy?
Maybe just a little bit.
This is such a nice garland, different and more simple than the commercial garlands found in shops.
That looks very festive! Great project!

You are so clever and...smart! I've been reading your blog for a while and am always amazed at the things you come up with, especially having two beautiful little ones under two!! I have one 13 y.o. son and sometimes can't figure out how to do everything I want to do. Hats off to you! 🙂
Simple and clever short cut to tasteful garland.
