We are still trying to beautify our apartment, and since I love seasonal decor, I have been experimenting with some fall projects. I started by adding this super easy leaf garland to our mantel!
As you can see, things were pretty bare when I started:
Here is what you’ll need:
- Fake leaves (I got mine for a dollar per little bag at Joann’s, and I ended up using 7 bags)
- Large needle
Thread the twine through the needle, then just thread the leaves onto the twine.
I found that I was squishing mine together, so even after I got all of them on they weren’t taking up as much space as I wanted. It looked like this:
I just went through and separated/spaced out the leaves a little bit, then hung it upon the mantel!
It is super easy, but a little time consuming. It is also pretty mindless, so I just did it while watching TV–it took me about 40 minutes, and then I had this great little garland! The mantel is still pretty bare, so more fall decor is sure to come.
