I’ve been wanting to make a felt leaf garland for a while. I thought it would be easy, but I had no idea just how easy. Seriously you guys, so simple. But it adds such a fun pop of color to the walls during this time in between Halloween and Christmas.
Supplies you’ll need:
2. Ribbon or twine – I used twine that I have on hand for gift wrapping and such.
3. Fabric glue or hot glue – I actually did one garland of each because I didn’t want to wait for the fabric glue/liquid stitch to dry. Details are below.
First off you’ll want to download and print this pdf leaf pattern I made. There are three sizes on one page, but the one I used and photographed is the largest size.
I just pinned the pattern to two pieces of felt at a time and it went pretty quickly.
I specifically bought liquid stitch for this project thinking it would be the best and easiest option. But it actually ended up being pretty messy, and since it took so long to dry I was worried the coiled twine would come free before it was fully adhered.
But once it dried, it looked really clean and all the leaves stayed attached. You can’t even tell it’s on the leaves in the photos below.
Despite how well the liquid stitch option turned out, I would still recommend hot glue. It took no time to dry so I didn’t have to worry about the twine coming loose. The hot glue version is on the right below.
You can see it on the backside now that it’s dry, but nobody would ever see that.
I spaced the leaves about 3″ apart and did one of each of the 8 colors of felt I bought.
