Fall Garland:{ Mantel Garland}


Easy Fall leaf garland
Since a child I have always loved to watch the Autumn and Fall leaves dance and spin  around on the ground as the wind would pick them up and toss and whip them about so magically. To this day, I look forward to that magical wind dancing with the leaves. How beautiful the changing colors of the dying leaves are. It makes me wonder if God planned it so that each season we go through, after it dies off, 
we would be a different color.  



Things you will need:
Fabric leaves {Michale's $1.99 for 12} String {used embroidery thread}
Sewing needle. Scissor.


                                         Cut off desired length of string for your garland.


Arrange and lay out your leaf pattern.


Using your needle and thread
start stringing together your leaves in to a beautiful garland.









So as I anticipate the coming of Autumn/Fall dancing leaves,
I hope you are inspired to check out the dance for yourselves.
Feel the magic in the air and let your spirit be enlightened.
Remember, keep it Homespun!
