Harvest Sign Garland

This is the first year that I am actually decorating for fall. Last year we were so new in our home that I hardly had any normal decorations; so I did not want to spend the time or money on seasonal decorations. This year I am ready to decorate for fall, in full force. I started with my wreath and the next step was making something for my mantel.

Your Supplies:
-Card Stock
-Craft knife
-Mod Podge
-Hole Punch
I like this project because it is simple and if you are into making crafts, you probably already have all these supplies in your crafting room or closet!

I am not lucky enough to have a Silhouette or Cricut at this point, so I had cut-out my letters the old fashion way.  I picked out the size and font that I wanted my letters, printed, and started cutting with my craft knife. (Maybe in the future I will have a magical machine that will do all the hard cutting for me!)
I taped my prints over cardstock to cut my letters out.

I was using orange glitter, so I also used orange cardstock so no white would show through my glitter.
Once your letters are cut out start mod-podging and glittering your letters.

I let my letters dry while I cut out triangles to adhere to the back of my letters. Using a small circular hole punch I made holes for the string of my garland. I strung my triangles on my hemp string and used glue dots to adhere my triangles and letters together.
