Autumn Leaves Garland

This simple craft is a beautiful addition to your nature table or just to bring a little of the autumn colors inside.

You'll need:

  • felt in autumn colors - red, yellow, orange, brown (we really love wool felt)
  • embroidery floss in similar colors
  • leaf templates - maple, oak, dogwood (we used clip art images)
  • pins
  • fabric scissors
  • embroidery needle

First, pin the template to the felt and carefully cut out the leaf. Make as many leaves as you would like. We cut out 12 leaves., three of each shape and color.

Next select a coordinating color of embroidery floss and stitch the veins of the leaf.

When all the leaves have been embroidered tie them to a length of embroidery floss or yarn appropriate for the size of your leaves.

Hang your leaf garland and enjoy.
