As the [Felt] Leaves Fall

Despite the fact that it’s snowing in Ohio, it’s still autumn in this part of the world! And why not celebrate it with this easy-to-make garland of felt leaves.

I apologize for not taking more step-by-step photography, but I kind of whipped these together while watching a movie one night. But the process is simple. Cut out two pieces of felt into a leaf-shape. Feel free to go online and find a template to help. I stitched the veins into one piece of the leaf with embroidery floss.

I put a layer of batting between the two layers of felt and used thread to blanket stitch the pieces together.

I strung my leaves onto a garland, but you could also use them individually as gift tags or ornaments.

Don’t have time to make this yourself. Then feel free to buy this garland at my Etsy shop!
