Congrats Hilary! Check your email! 

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!

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

okay, hold the phone—this is providence. Just this morning I pinned a pin telling me how to make those pom poms ALL BY MYSELF. and then I stumble onto your blog. I am going to go reward myself with a huge bowl of ice cream.

p.s. following you now!
