DIY Fall Leaves Garland

What you'll need:
  • Fresh fallen leaves (Cut a heart shape in the middle of the smaller leaves right after picking them. If you do it when they're dry they'll break) Put them in between book pages to make them flat. Wait a few days for them to dry.
  • Glue stick.
  • Rope.
  • Tape.
  • Acorns (optional) IF you're using acorns, you will need a hot glue gun.

Gather your leafs and place the small, heart shape ones over a bigger leaf, to make it stand out, and look brighter. Stick them together with the glue stick.

Line them up any way you want. It could be with a pattern. Be creative!

With a sharp pencil, poke a small hole on the top of leaves and begin threading them.
 Secure the rope with tape, to prevent it from moving then ripping the very dry and delicate leaf.

If you want to add Acorns, stick them with the hot glue in-between the leaves. They will give the garland a beautiful touch.

Enjoy your beautiful and easy creation,. Hang it up anywhere in the house. You can add lights, to make it more interesting.
