Fall Faux Leaf Garland

Fall is in full swing! One of my favorite holidays is just a few days away, and I am in a super festive mood. I love decorating for the holidays. It has always been one of the most enjoyable things about the holidays for me, and nothing beats homemade decorations!

Making this faux leaf garland is super easy, and you will only need a few need a few items:

  • Faux cloth leaves (find them at your local craft store)
  • String
  • A large embroidery needle

Start off by laying your faux leaves out in a straight line, in whatever order you desire. Measure out how much string you will need by laying the string out next to your line of leaves. Leave extra string at both ends so you can hang the garland when it's done. Loop about an inch of the string through the needle, leaving the remainder hanging out the other side of the needle. Weave the needle and string through one side of a leaf and back up through the other side. Pull the leaf down to the other end of the string. Repeat with each leaf until the string is full. Tie a loop at each end of your garland using the remaining string on each side. 

This easy faux leaf garland will make the perfect finishing touch to your holiday decor!
