November’s DIY Project: Create a felt leaf garland!

Posted on Nov 19, 2014 in Blog


This is a great project you can do with your children; I created mine with my mom. Plan to spend some time cutting out the leaf shapes; I actually watched a TV marathon and the time passed quickly.

Step 2: Select a leaf shape you like; I simply picked one up from my yard and traced it onto the felt.

I chose to wrap greenery around a drapery rod and hung it from the ceiling as shown. I draped the rod with the felt leaf garland and added holiday accents to create a beautiful display in the store.

I also made an extra garland to drape around the Christmas tree!
