It's finally cool here in North Carolina, so I was inspired to make some fall decorations! 

Using this idea and this idea, I made this garland:





I like how it hangs unevenly, but if you want a "tighter" finish, make sure you measure your yarn before you make the garland. :)

The pom pom's are mustard and grey, and the string is a light beige. The pinecones came from Michaels ( I like the cinnamon scented ones ).

I tied a piece of yarn around the tops of the pinecones and then tied them on the yarn string. I attached the pom poms by spreading some of the "sprigs" out of the way, placing a small line of hot glue near the center, and then pressing it onto the yarn string. They hold up great!

Cheap, easy, and a little more interesting than the pre-made stuff! 

Hope you are enjoying cooler weather!

  4. we need to discuss something. I can not navigate pinterest without seeing your cute little smile and perfect locks. I seriously search "icecream" and there you are, smiling at me, with a quote reading "pony tail sweet as icecream." Let's be honest. If there was a pinterest award, like most repinned or something, you would SO own it. You Go Girl. <3
