Decorate….Naturally

Natural Garland

Natural Garland

 

 

This is a simple and truly elegant way to decorate your home for the fall or just for fun! You can change up the decorations every year and the best part is the materials are free. You can use these materials in garlands, to glue on to old home decor to make it look fresh and new!

Materials:
Pine-cones
Leaves
Acorns
Rocks
Twine or rope (what ever is lying around the house)
Hot glue gun

Directions:

1. Figure out your designs first. If you are using all of the same material for each garland separately this will be quick but if you want to change it up and alternate it is best to place it out first so you don’t get mixed up later.

2. Wrap and knot the twine around each pine-cone (you can use a dab of hot glue to make sure it stays). You should hot glue items like rocks, leaves, twigs or acorn’s.

3. Wait for the hot glue to dry. You can add glitter or pain to your fabulous new garlands. Dab them with essential oils so they can double as room fresheners as well (except for the pine cone which might smell on their own). Find my famous old broken hairclips, pins or buttons that you were needed an excuse to use and glue away!

4. Start hanging!! Place your garlands around your house to add some fall cheer to your rooms.

Holiday Decorations

Holiday Decorations

Now that holiday season is in full swing and many of you have already started to decorate or are planning to in the near future here is one of my most favorite ideas that I do every year instead of buying new holiday nic-nacs! I take an unused vase, basket or dish. Then I put any excessornaments, pineconesdried flowers, garland and other odds and ends together for a fabulous holiday center piece! Instead of cluttering up your tree use your decorations creatively and get the most out of your decor! You can put it anywhere in your house that might be lacking holiday cheer! Send us your holiday inventions and we will post them on the Beagle all season long!
