This year will be my third year hosting Thanksgiving, and I'm always so excited to plan the tablescape. When I scored a few packs of fabric leaves in the Target $1 section, I immediately thought about turning them into some sort of garland as part of my Thanksgiving decor. This past weekend I spread out my leaves and got creative, and I'm happy to report that my fall leaf garland was a (totally cute) success.
Fall Leaf Garland How-To:
To make this fall leaf garland, you'll need ribbon, thread and fabric leaves (you can either buy these or make them yourself).
Start by threading your needle and sewing through the leaves, arranging them with desired space in between. When you're done, make a knot at the end.
Next you'll need to sew a bit of ribbon on the end for hanging since the thread isn't quite sturdy enough. Once you've got your ribbon on, you're ready to hang!
I chose to make 6 little mini garlands and hang them in strips from our dining room lights so that they frame the center of the table sort of like a leaf chandelier, but you could also make it longer and hang as a traditional garland.
Now on to the rest of the table decorations...
