Happy October!!!! Let’s kick this month off with a little Fall Decor. I created this Nautical Fall Mantel and Garland Tutorial for you guys. I know you might be thinking… “Fall AND Nautical? What?” Lemme explain: I love nautical decor. I love fall decor. Some people think the two styles aren’t compatible … I beg to differ. Lots of natural woven elements, white, the boat paint-by-number, and the round mirror (think port hole) make it nautical. Pumpkins, leaves, and black chevron say fall. The elements all work together because neither is over-emphasized. Plus, white on white is dreamy, am I right?
The woven Nautical ball garland is easy to make:
Sew the woven balls onto the hemp. In order that the balls do not slip on the hemp, sew the balls to the hemp by pushing the needle through the hemp and then wrap the thread around the hemp. This will ensure the balls will stay where you put them.
Pair the garland with white pumpkins, leaves, and anything white and you can call your fall mantel decor done for the season!
What’s your design asthetic? Does Nautical + Fall work for you?
