Autumn Leaf Garland
For just a couple of dollars, and using free brances from our own yard, I created this thick Halloween garland for our front door.
What better way to welcome fall than an autumn leaf garland surrounding your front door?
Start with 4 screws in the door jam surrounding the front door. I simply tied a piece of rope connecting all 4 screws.
With green floral wire, I wire on small brances from the oak tree in the front yard.
Just wire them all around the door.
Now a layer of color. I used dried preserved fall leaves from our grocery store on top of the green oak leaves.
The orange B-lights came from the Target. I used 200....that's 2 boxes.
Weave them back and forth, hiding the cords in the leaves. (no one wants to see the cords)
These flicker flame lights are next. I weave them from the back and push the bulbs through to the front of the leaves.
Looks best at night with all the orange glow. (We made the square wreath too.)
