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.

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.
