Falling leaves, pumpkin spices, and cozy sweaters are making their way into our lives. This can only mean one thing! Fall is here and we couldn’t be more happy about it. Today we have an easy tutorial to adorn your home or party and get you even more excited for the cooler weather and falling leaves.
You will need:
- Tissue poms. We chose 5 each of orange and white in the 5″-6″ size. Brown and gold may also be fun.
- Green construction paper.
- Baker’s Twine
The first thing you will need to do is fluff up those tissue poms (click here for instructions). The number of tissue poms you need will be determined by how long you want your garland to be. You will also need to decide how much space you want between the poms.
You will attach the poms individually to the baker’s twine. Using the ribbon from the pom, tie it to the twine with a knot. Cut off the excess ribbon when you’re done.
Once all of your poms are attached, it’s time to get your pumpkin stems ready. How big you cut them will depend on what size poms you chose. These are about an inch and a half wide and a couple inches long. We shaped them like stems as you can see.
You will use the knots from the ribbon to tape the stems on. Use two pieces of tape. One on each side. extend the tape down onto the ribbon to ensure that it stays in the upward direction.
Once your stems are in place you are all set to go! Add some loops onto the ends and hang it up where ever you desire.
This garland would look so fun to liven up a play room. It would be perfect for a party. How fun would it look in a classroom!? Where would you use this garland? Are you having any fall parties this year? Be sure to check out our pinterest page for even more ideas and inspiration.
