DIY: quick autumn garland

12 Nov

Wasn’t Sunday the most gorgeous autumn day? I took a walk through Crystal Palace Park in the warm sunshine and gathered a few handfuls of turning leaves, hips and berries to make an simple garland to bring some of that autumn beauty into my home.

This autumn garland is so easy it’s a bit of a stretch to call it a DIY really. All you need are a length of ribbon or twine, some mini wooden pegs and the pick of nature’s bounty!

I choose some vibrant red and yellow just-fallen leaves and berries so I don’t think the colours will last long, but they’ve really cheered up my living room. You could try pressing the leaves or using completely dry ones and it would last all winter.

    The garland and your photos are wonderful!

    “but they’ve really cheered up my living room” you say.

    I love your blog – even though I am a fan of colour – and now you feel what colour does for me!
