Autumn Craft: {Apple & Leaf Garland}

Little Autumn Touches!
Like everyone else, we love this time of year for so many reasons. It is not hard for us to find a place in the home for a few more little Autumn touches! This time we crafted up a smallish rustic apple and leaf garland that took no time to assemble and cost very little which we all like!

Craft supplies:
Dollar Tree red apples{we used three bags with five apples}
Craft leaves we had. Embroidery thread we had. Needle. Scissors

Decide on your pattern or go with the flow.
Cut thread to desired length. Thread needle
{ we used a big thick needle not regular sewing needle}
Begin stringing apples and leaves as desired.

We hung our garland on our chest which we found left on a nearby corner curbside near home.
We still need to revamp it one of these days, but for now it is shabby chic!

We hope you are inspired to keep adding those little Autumn touches around your home!
Remember, keep it Homespun!

The Lord detests the way of the wicked
but He loves those who pursue righteousness.

Homespun With Love
