It’s feeling a lot like fall!

Pumpkin spice lattes, crunchy leaves, cool brisk air, little critters rushing around gathering nuts…..yep, it’s fall all right! 🙂  My most favorite time of year!  I saw this garland by Elsie recently and had to make something similar!  It was so simple to do, it only took me about an hour total!  I used up some of my wool felt scraps but you could use the regular craft felt for an equally cute look!  To make your own leaf garland:

  • cut leaf shapes out of felt, paper or whatever you have on hand
  • sew together end to end with a sewing machine or by hand
  • sew little felt tabs or loops on each end of the garland to hang
  • hang and enjoy! 🙂

I got all of my wool felt at a great place in St. Louis called Jackman’s fabrics in the Frontenac area.  They are the best fabric shop! 🙂  If you prefer wool felt and would like a great selection try Etsy.
