Decorating For Fall With Old Clothes and A Coffee Bag

My husband was clearing out some of his old clothes to donate to charity and a few things caught my eye.  Now those things are hanging in our dining room …

Some old clothes are cut into triangles and sewn together to create this easy Fall garland. Also, a burlap coffee bag is cut to fit behind the glass door of my china closet.

I got this bag for free from a local coffee shop, all I had to do was ask.

Other clothes that made the cut – I'm happily keeping busy with this.

I’m listening to The Smiths today.

    great ideas! the garland is really a cute idea…makes me think of a shirt from a scarecrow…also the coffee bag…what a great idea. You really think outside the box and I am loving it. Thanks for the tip about how you aquired the coffee bag!
