Autumn Leaf Paint Chip Garland

Easy leaf garland! Time to make a mantel garland! You may have noticed our leaf garland on our Autumn Mantel lately. With just some paint chips from the Depot, we created a colorful Autumn mantel garland and so can you!

Over the summer, while browsing for bed room paint, we came upon these leaf shaped paint chips and new immediately, "this will be great for a Autumn mantel garland". Pre cut and with a little pop out tab to run your string through. How easy is that?!

If you are interested in getting your leaf paint chips, we found ours in the BEHR paint section of Home Depot. We used some natural twine/sting to string our paint chips on.

                                    There is the little pop out tab to use for hanging.

The paint chip colors are the perfect Autumn colors. You might even find your next room color while displaying these!

You can even complete this project on the weekend in little time and than sit back and enjoy it and your favorite football game! Be inspired, get creative!

He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,
Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Proverbs: 29:1
