THANKSGIVING decors - DIY idea - FRONT ENTRANCE - fall door garland

I forgot about the door!!!! All month I've been meaning to make a wreath or something and three days before I finally decide to make something. Of course all the stores are sold out of Thanksgiving stuff but I found most of this in the Christmas section!!! 

I made this door garland last night with leftover fall leaves and Christmas embellishments I found at Michael's Craft Store that looked Thanksgiving-ish. :) I was too busy planning for Halloween I forgot about Thanksgiving.

Wish I had better pics but it was dark outside and FREEEEZING! 

Ribbon on sale ((Christmas that looked Thanksgiving)) -Brown glitter and gold and orange
Holographic ribbon (gift from my BFF)
Fall leaves 
Orange ((Christmas)) embellishments (50% off)

My hubby calls me a pack rat and almost hoarder......nah. BUT I do keep every little scrap of anything and everything thinking I will use it again and USUALLY when I need it, I can't find it. Figures. Well, today was a different story. Last year I made these recycled napkin holders.

See post HERE

And the wire part of the ribbon I cut off, that's right, I kept! I thought for sure I could use them to make a wreath (glitter twist ties) and TODAY I not only found them but had a very good use for them!!! Super excited about that. 

Now for the garland

First I used floral wire and weaved the burlap back and forth 

Then found the middle and worked my way down the ribbon. Gather and twist tie.

Made two bows

In the Christmas for me! Only found two :(

Found 8 of these smaller ones. Added the fall leaves and hot glued.

These were also in the Christmas section and 50% off!

I added some fall leaves and the Christmas embellishments.

Bent the wire down so it will hang over the pot.

Ribbon to hide the dowel when I hang them.

Remember my TURKEY POT?  Free printable on that post. 
I printed these 5x7 and hot glued a dowel to the back. 

I stuck the dowel in the loop and into the dirt to hold them in place. The brown ribbon hides the dowel. 

TA -DAAAA!!! So quick and easy! 

BTW, I hung the garland with command clips. Same ones I used HERE.

Thank you for stopping by!!!
