Festive Fall Garland

I've been slowly putting up a few decorations to celebrate fall. A few pumpkins here, a wreath there. I made a simple fall garland out of supplies I already had (the best kind of handmade!). 

1. I cut out a bunch of circles from scrapbook paper. I traced a drinking glass and cut out as many circles that would fit on a standard piece of scrapbook paper. I used double sided paper for even more prettiness!

2. I punched two holes in each circle to make big paper buttons.

3. I then strung them on my favorite crafty item, cotton string.

(we found this chair in the garbage already painted the perfect shade of red...who does that?)

How pretty, just in time for my favorite season!
