Today I have such a fun and simple project for you! Head to your backyard and collect some lovely fall leaves. If you’re not the nature collecting type, you can use faux leaves like I did (I’m a nature lover but my leaves were all still green when I made this). Today I am sharing my Embellished Leaf Garland.
Fall is on it’s way… so let’s get into how to make one for your home now!
What supplies do I need for a Leaf Garland DIY
- Faux Fall Leaves (multi color, burgandy, pale orange)
- Autumn colored Washi Tape
- Black Paint Pen
How do you make a DIY fall leaf garland?
The first step for this project is to “embellish” your leaves.
Using a black paint pen, I traced the veins of each leaf and then added additional lines until each leaf was completely covered.
Then, I pulled out all my fun fall colored washi tape and created mini flags to add to the garland.

Next, I laid out my string, the leaves and the washi tape flags. Using hot glue, I applied a small dot to the string and secured everything down.
I followed a pattern of leaf, washi tape, leaf, washi tape. You could do whatever pattern you like most for your garland.
