I decided to hang a little somthing different than my normal fall wreath on the door this year. When I stumbled across this metal rake at the Goodwill for $2 an idea started to form in my head.
So this is what I came up with through my inspiration.
I wrapped the handle with several larger strips of ripped fabric securing with hot glue. Then I wrapped over where the fabric meets with a few random scraps of fabric and some yarn.
I then took an old book I thrifted for projects like this a cut out a bunch of leaves in various sizes. I loved how the leaves looked on the nesters garland when she just creased them, so I did that and it gave them such a better dimension. I then just took yarn and a plastic yarn needle and strung the leaves on three separate and varying length strands. I knotted each leaf on to stay in place and spaced them roughly 1″-1.5″ apart on the strand. I just tied the top of the garlands together to form that clump and then hung it over the rake. So simple. I kind of want to fabric wrap everything, and definitely want to make some more leaf garlands.
Can you tell my door needs to be stripped and painted? Yep, just add that to the list. I am thinking charcoal, or aqua!?!?!?!
Thanks for stopping by!
