This is an easy tutorial for a DIY fall leaf garland.
I wanted fall garland for my fireplace, and I made my own using leaves from the dollar store (I used two packages – total of 100 leaves) and (thick) string.
Here’s an Amazon (affiliate) link for the leaves:
I forgot to add a needle in the supply shot, so pretend a needle is there.
I measure my mantel so I knew how long of a string I needed and knotted the end.
Then I just began hand sewing the leaves together. Just one big stitch in each!
Before long, I had a fall garland!
And here’s a little behind the scenes shot. While I was making this garland, Lena was having a blast playing with the leaves.
*UPDATE* I ended up spray painting my garland gold to fit the decor in my family room.
