Inkling: fall envelope garland

Bowls overflowing with pumpkins and gourds, cornucopias and wreaths generously packed with fall leaves surround us this time of year. They’re colorful, beautiful and symbolic of abundance. When assembling my fall garland, I decided to take a different approach.

I used small envelopes and stamped them with leaves using gold and green ink. Then I threaded them onto string.

Rather than clustering the leaves and wheat, peeking out of each envelope is a single stalk of wheat or fall leaf.

I love the rich abundance of fall, but sometimes a simple touch can still be plenty.


  1. What a cute idea! This would make a great Christmas advent calendar too!!

  2. First of all - this is just beautiful. simple and beautiful. And it incorpprates two of my favorite fall craft supplies - leaves and wheat!

    But I am also thinking what a great base from which to launch an advent garland! Think about it! If you do it!

  3. Thanks for coming to A Crafty Soiree and sharing:) This is beautiful! I really like how the natural elements are peeking out.

  4. My first thoughts were that it would make a great advent calendar. I see some people beat me to the punch.

  5. This is funny. I opened the two links that I liked at the just a girl blog and they are both from your blog. I guess that means I have to follow now!
