Make Your Own Autumn Leaves Garland

DIY Autumn Leaves Garland

This autumnal craft idea from 6th Street Design School is simple, cheap and looks GREAT! The leaves are so pretty and shimmery, without feeling too ‘homemade’. You could hang yours across a fireplace, or maybe along the wall by some stairs. Once you’ve assembled all the supplies it should only take about ten minutes to put together.

Shopping list:
– Artificial leaves, available via Amazon (or the Dollar Store if you’re in the US)
– PVA glue
– Glitter in autumnal colours, these ones from Etsy are perfect
– Ribbon
– A hole punch

Her frustration at the lack of alternatives to high street brands and catalogue decorating has since seen it evolve into a sourcebook for unusual and interesting design, complete with tours of beautiful homes and the occasional ill-advised DIY project.

  1. Oooooh I just saw that through Pinterest! What a great idea! But I think I will try with some natural leaves and a brush of metallic paint to see how it goes! But I love the glitter and the garland, it looks fabulous!

    1. Hey Lucie, thanks for your comment! That sounds like a great idea – au naturel. You’ll have to send over a picture when you’re done 🙂

    1. Hey Jessica! When working with glitter in the past I’ve always just used a spray sealant to keep it from coming off on my hands and clothes. You can get it from craft shops or Amazon.

  2. Hey Lucy! Love your idea’s! But your name caught me! I’m a Meek also! I used to be, my married name is Boer. Wonder if we could be related! Chris Boer

    1. Haha, hi Chris! Nice to meet you! I imagine we must be related if you look back far enough 🙂 Although you’re in the States and I’m in the UK, so unless you have family over here it’s likely to be a pretty long time ago!
