you know that I'm just a few days shy of having baby #3! I've been logging in some
serious hours on the couch as of late. You know what that means... craft time from the couch for this large and in charge mama! My latest DIY is some transitional Summer to Fall Mantel decor. These DIY yarned wrapped bunny tail grass stalks are super easy.
I was original inspired by the Color Wrapped Wheat project I pinned by the uber talented Michael at Inspired By Charmed. His blog is chock full of amazing decor, DIYs and recipes. I especially like the specialty cocktail posts like his Peppermint Espresso Martini... tastes SOOOOO good when it hits your lips...
Back to my DIY - like I was saying, it's too early for Halloween and Thanksgiving decor so I wanted to create something that was transitional from Summer to Fall. I combined a couple of traditional fall colors with some summer coastal colors. Since Navy is my JAM I chose a Navy, Cream, Gold and Orange color scheme for the yarn.
Supplies needed for this project are:
- Dried Bunny Tail Grass from the craft store
- Variety of Colored Yarn from the craft store
Step 1: Gather 7 stalks of bunny tail and bunch them together tightly with your fingers. Tie a knot of yarn around once at the top to secure the stalks together.
Step 2: While holding the string of yarn in place twist the bunched stalks of bunny tails around and around so that the yarn twists down the stalk about 2 to 3 inches.
Step 3: Tie another knot at the bottom to hold everything together
Step 4: Trim the excess yarn at the top and bottom with scissors
What hints of Fall decor are making their way into your home this September?
