Thanksgiving Crafts: Leaf Wreath And Garland (PHOTOS)

Who said decorating for Thanksgiving had to be done in red, orange and yellow? We love this autumn mantel even more for its unique choice of blue, purple and yellow. To make the great wreath hanging above the fireplace, simply buy a plastic leaf garland and wrap it around a wreath form. Then, hang it up using a wide ribbon, like the cheerful blue one featured above. To make a DIY version of this mantel garland, you'll need craft acetate and wire. Cut leaf shapes out of the craft acetate and attach them to a wire garland (made by following this TLC tutorial). Or, simply purchase a leafy garland from the craft store.
