Deck your home for the holidays with Mou

Hello bloggers, Mou here today with a fun and simple fall décor idea for your home!

Of all the seasons, Fall is my absolute favorite! I am inspired by the beautiful vibrant colors of fall foliage. The falling leaves swirling in the autumn breeze gave me the idea to create a leafy garland to decorate our dining room windows.

To create this project, you'll need:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Double Scoop® Color: Red Cherry, Mango, Margarita Mix, Green TeaRaspberry

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: 3ct RED

Others: Mixed Media paper pad, stamp, thread, sewing machine, die, diecutter, paint brush

Color mixed media paper with various Gelatos colors. Blend the colors with wet brush.

Ink up a script stamp with Stamper's Brush pen and stamp randomly around the colored papers.

Splatter some watered down Gelatos colors on the papers.

Diecut fall leaves out of the papers. You could also cut your own with scissors.

Machine stitch the leaves together into a garland. Working with the slowest stitching speed is best for this.

Wrap it in loops around a window to bring in some colors on drab rainy days!

Hope you liked my tutorial! Why not give it a try yourself. You'll have fun!
