It all started when I bought several packages of these tiny fabric, felt, and burlap pumpkins and made the mini pumpkin wreaths.

I always knew that I wanted to do more than one fall craft with the teeny weenie gourds . . . and I had so many left over.

I looked at my fireplace which has a large wood mantel and thought “these need to hang right there.” So that’s how this DIY garland was born.

And honestly, it’s so easy you’ll be able to do it with your eyes closed. It’s super cute, and super cheap, but it looks really good to me. I am keeping it up all through autumn and then Thanksgiving!
