happy Fall! {a leaf garland project}

I know most places {stores & such} are already deep into Christmas...
but I refuse to put up Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.

All of the walls in our new home are pretty bare,
{eventually I'll get some pictures/art hung!}
so I decided to add some Fall!

This was a super easy project, although a little time-consuming.
I just used some pretty Autumn paper I had on hand, this leaf template, and some ribbon.
I cut out all the leaves, strung them on the ribbon, and hung it with some little Command hooks.
Then I added a few extra leaves around the garland to give it a more filled-in look.
Definitely a nice touch in our dining room!

What do you add to your home to make it feel like Fall?

Cute! As much as I love Christmas (and may already be listening to Christmas music....) I don't decorate until after Thanksgiving either. It just feels wrong!
