1: Click Here http://mycutestamps.com/leaves.pdf to download my Leaves Pattern PDF file.

2: Print the file, then cut out the leaves.


3: Trace Leaf shapes onto felt. I chose felt in 4 different fall colors. I used a white pencil to trace the leaves onto the dark felt colors.

4: Cut leaf shapes out of felt.


5: Using an embroidery floss, stitch the leaf veins onto each leaf.
I used a gold colored floss which I thought was a little thick, so I pulled 3 strands out of the floss to make it easier to stitch. You could save some time, and use a gold glitter glue or fabric paint to make the leaf veins instead.


6: Decide how you want to place your leaves.


7: stitch leaves to a rick rack or ribbon.

8: Hang your new Thanksgiving garland and enjoy!

Thanks for this! I want to make mine so the leaves run horizontal, instead of hanging by the stems. We don't get much pretty leaves here, so this is the perfect decor for me!

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.
