Fall Garland

Thanks to the knowledge of my friend Tahliah, I now know that these are magnolia "cones". They fall off of this magnolia tree and land on the drive in front of our garage.

And since they're so pretty, I collected a few (in the same manner that I collect pine cones) and brought them inside for a little DIY fall decor project.

I originally thought they'd get spray-painted and go in these candle sconces (and one did), but another idea prevailed; garland for the fireplace!

All I needed was ribbon and scissors.

I started by cutting one long piece of ribbon and tying a cone to each end.

I hung them by the already existing hooks on our fireplace mantel (thanks, previous renters!).

And just like that- a quick and easy fall decorating project! Since I already had the ribbon (from Asher's nursery project) and the magnolia cones came straight off of the ground, it was totally free. Can't beat zero-dollar decor!

P.S. Thanking Jesus for the beautiful fall weather that's starting to roll into Georgia...the days are still in the 80s, but the mornings and evenings are cool and crisp.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally
educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.
