This Fall Garland is Cute and Budget Friendly

I pulled out my fall decorations last weekend and it was so fun! I love fall and fall decor and all the fall things. But after I finished decorating I decided I wanted a fall garland!

So I ran to the craft store, got just a few simple supplies and whipped this one up. So simple, but so cute! And you can make it as long as you like, so it fits any area you like. Here is how I did it.

Small pinecones, foam pumpkins, fishing line, and a needle

DIY Autumn Garland

What you need:

  • Fishing line
  • Needle
  • Small fall decorations (I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $5 and had way more than I needed!)
  • Scissors

When I say this is about the easiest fall craft you’ll ever do – I mean it. Put yourself on one of those Lifetime Christmas movies and you’ll be done before the end of it.

Needle threaded with fishing line

Step 1: Thread the fishing line through your needle. You’ll want to make the fishing line as long as you would like your fall garland. Leave about 12″ or so on either end for tying and hanging.

Step 2: Thread the decorations on the fishing line (rocket science, I know).

With a few basic supplies, you can easily whip up a fall garland. It's simple to make, and this pretty seasonal decor that won't break the bank!

Step 3. Tie off each end very close to the last item so the objects don’t shift around. Hang.

Then I draped it on the table in my entryway.

I love how it turned out!

Love this, and the beautiful rustic, fall look (anytime). Seems easy enough to follow along with the photo tutorial (thank you!). My fall tree could use a festive fall garland like this. Pinning.
