Fall Leaves Garland
I am finally getting around to posting my fall decorations-and this year I actually have a sewing machine to piece together this colorful garland. I love garlands of all types all through the year. It was so easy to trace leaves from my backyard and cut them out of the felt. I chose four different types of leaves and four bright colors.
I simply stitched a straight line through each leaf and before I got to the end I overlapped the edges just enough to attach it to the next one. I attached ribbon to each end by sewing the ribbon through the backside of the end leaf. I added a few embellishments on some of the leaves using the decorative stitch setting in zig zag shapes. It took only one afternoon to make this pretty fall garland!
