Do you love the farmhouse style, but like to incorporate a little bit of romanticism? Then, this shabby chic Autumn garland is for you!
The first thing I did was white wash my burlap leaves. If you aren’t able to find the leaves anywhere, make your own! Download a leaf clipart from the internet and trace that onto burlap fabric. You could use spray starch to stiffen it up if necessary.
After my leaves were dry, I added my gold letters. If you happen to have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or a Silhouette Cameo, you could cut your own letters out of glitter cardstock. This is a great way to really make this project to fit your style perfectly. I do have a Cameo, but I had the gold letters from another project and they worked perfectly for this.
To attach them to the burlap, I used hot glue. They are stickers, but they do not stick to the burlap well on their own, so the glue was necessary.
Let's start building our shabby chic Autumn garland!
Once I got all of my letters attached, I hung up my faux pearl strand so I could start placing my leaves. I started in the middle of the strand and worked my way out. The leaves have a stem on them that are bendable, so I folded those over and that is how I hung them onto the pearl strand.
To secure them, I used a piece of raffia. You could just use hot glue on the back, but I thought the leaves needed a bit more, and the raffia fit that shabby ticket!
And that was it! I absolutely love how it turned out!! It was the perfect addition to our farmhouse fireplace mantel! Tell us what you think in the comments!!
