Happy {DIY} Holidays

Decorations for the holidays can be exhausting, daunting, not to mention expensive for just a few weeks of enjoyment. So this year, rather than making separate Halloween and Thanksgiving decor, I made Fall decorations I was able to keep up from late September through Thanksgiving.

{DIY} Fall Leaf Garland

  • I used scrapbook papers in various fall colors and a copy of the Declaration of Independence, since I was hanging it in my US History classroom.
  • After cutting out the leaves, I simply hole punched them and then strung them together using yarn.
  • Here is a great Fall Leaf Template, from the website of Lia Griffith

And then came Christmas time! I was a total Scrooge this year and opposed to decorating a tree. So instead, I took advantage of the chalkboard accent wall in my dining room and all the scrapbooking supplies I have, to create a more low-maintenance Christmas tree.

No vacuuming pine needles all month, YAY!

TIP: for pretty lettering, I just do an image search online “chalkboard typography” and whatever more specific thing I am looking for, in this case “Christmas”. This always brings up lots of possibilities and then you can just copy the lettering yourself, rather than having to  create your own design!

Happy Holidays,

~The Girl
