Ombre Pumpkin Pie Paint Swatch Garland

At a loss for festive decor for Thanksgiving? Look no further! This garland literally took less than ten minutes to make, and was under $5 to create! If you cant tell by my past D.I.Y entries, I’m big on finding cute decor ideas that cost next to nothing. Im a firm believer that you don’t have to sacrifice cost or class to create a great home decor piece, and this garland just proves it. I love that this activity is also kid friendly to create, so if you want to involve them in the process, go right ahead! Here’s what you’ll need to make this project:

  • seven to eight orange paint swatches (free from your local Home Depot)
  • glue gun
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • burlap ribbon
  • cotton balls

To start, heat up your glue gun. As its heating up, you can cut out triangles with your paint swatches. I would make it go at least 3-4 colors long, to create the ombre effect. To make the “crust,” take your burlap ribbon and make sure its thin enough to just cover the top. glue the burlap ribbon onto the paint swatch and let dry. To create the “whip cream dollop” take your cotton ball and glue in the center with your hot glue gun. Once all your pie pieces are created, glue them onto a piece of yarn with your glue gun. Once dried, hang and enjoy! Such a simple and inexpensive D.I.Y! Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful for each and every one of you!
