Anyway, I had been wanting to create some more Thanksgiving decor since we're hosting this year, so I got working on a leaves garland. I loved how the leaves that I made for my fabric flower wreath turned out, so I made several more using different colors of felt.
I just folded the felt in half and cut out a leaf shape, then stitched around the edges. I varied this, making some with the stitch wrapping around the edges, and some with a lacing look.
Then, I stitched a line up the center of the leaf and then worked my way back down to the bottom, making 2-3 'veins' on each side.
Once I had 2 of each color, I threaded them onto some embroidery floss (the same I used to create the stitching), and tied off the ends for easier hanging.
For such a simple project, I love how well it came out! I have them hanging on the doors of the entertainment center my dad built. My parents outgrew it, so we adopted it and I love how it fits in our living room.
Have you made any Thanksgiving decorations? I'd love to see them!
