I just made this awesome garland for my apartment! I needed some more fall inspired accessories around the house, so last Sunday I went pumpkin hunting and made these guys. I also wanted to create a garland for the living room so badly, something with leafs and autumn colors.

While I was making the garland I had the idea of adding pictures on the leaves to make it special and intimate. I added some memories from past holidays with my family and friends, pictures make everything happier, I love having them around the house.

Project cost: $ 1.20 Dollars

Any kind of thread should work perfectly, you don’t need any fancy scissors or needles either. I used what I already had at home.

I printed the pictures on normal printing paper.

STEPS:

1. Draw the shape of a leaf. This will help you as template.

2. Cut leaves from the felt sheets, using your template to measure them.

3. Choose a couple of leaves and cut an oval out of them, then set them aside. See picture #3

4. Start sewing the leaves together except the ones that you set aside in step #3

5. Now it’s time to use the special leafs. Glue the leaves you set aside in step 3 on the garland leaving an open space so you can add the pictures later.

6. Add the pictures.

7. Hang the garland and enjoy!
