When fall comes, I feel an urge to pepper the house with decorations. Pumpkins and hay bales are nice, but so many indoor decorations are cheaply made knickknacks from another country where you can bet the standard of worker care isn’t what it should be. (Not to mention the carbon footprint of toting all that plastic stuff halfway around the world!)
Today I made a completely free fall decoration that required only 2 supplies: acorns and spare yarn.
It became an acorn garland!
All that you need to do is find whole acorns that still have a little stem at the top. Tie a simple knot around the stem with yarn, and string a number of acorns in a row. A fall treat!
I think they look fun strung across the alcove above my sink.
Also, I made a dress! I was on a sewing hiatus for the summer, but I finally finished (with a few mistakes) my first dress. Despite all the issues I had, I think it will be wearable! And I apologize for the state of the picture — this mirror is really old and permanently clouded irregardless of how well it is cleaned, but I’m excited to share this first!
Happy acorn hunting!
