Hold Up, Wait a Minute, Put a Little Fall In It

This song has been haunting my karaoke nights for the last few weeks (thank you TRY), so I had to share.  Just stick “fall” in place of “love.” Anyways, I after that segway, The Treehouse has gotten a little Fall put into it.  I absolutely love this time of year and enjoy decorating accordingly.

  • Squares of fabric
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hemp

Take the squares of fabric and fold over the sides just enough to “hem” the edges to create a smooth line. Then fold the top most section over the hemp and glue it in place.  Then fold the two bottom corners in to create points.  And voila!  You have a homemade Fall bunting for under $10.

They are now nestled sweetly on my buffet table in the dining area.

Mom gave me a lovely fall wreath to adorn and hang on my door for the season, and, being the Pinterest-ing maven I am, ran with it.  I purchased a wood block letter, grabbed the hemp from the bunting as well as my hot glue gun, and began wrapping the hemp around the letter.

091113160155Best advice I can give when wrapping letters in hemp:  use the glue gun; it’s there for you!  The letter wrapping took about two hours with breaks because my fingers were getting sore from holding the hemp on but the final product is just lovely.
