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! This would look great on the mantel.
Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you can make this autumn garland. You’ll be stringing items onto fishing line – so simple.
I pulled out my fall decorations last weekend and it was so fun! I love fall wreaths, fall decor, and all the fall things. But after I finished decorating I decided I wanted a fall garland! This is one you can put up for autumn and keep up through Thanksgiving.
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.
This is an easy project, and would make a fun fall craft for adults or fall craft for kids. You’ll just have to monitor kids of certain ages with the needle. Here is how I did it.
DIY Autumn Garland
What you need:
- Fishing line
- Small fall decorations (I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $5 and had way more than I needed!)
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.
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).
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.
