DIY Fall Felt Leaves Beaded Garland. Bring the beautiful colors of fall into your home with this felt leaf garland!
Fall, with its vibrant tapestry of colors and crisp, cool air, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. As leaves cascade from trees in hues of red, orange, and yellow, there’s a sense of wonder that fills the atmosphere. Capturing this natural beauty and bringing it indoors is a delightful way to celebrate the season. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to create your very own felt leaf beaded garland—a charming craft project that allows you to customize the colors to match your fall decor.
Supplies You’ll Need:
- Wood beads (how many depends on the length you want your garland to be.)
- Twine or string
- Felt sheets in various fall colors (red, orange, yellow, and brown)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Leaf template (download our free template)
- Optional: Regular glue for a kid-friendly version
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Before diving into the crafting process, gather all the necessary materials and set them up in a clean, well-lit workspace. Make sure your felt sheets are large enough for the leaves you plan to create and that you have a variety of beads to choose from.
Step 2: Download and Cut the Leaf Template
We’ve created a free leaf template to make this project even easier for you. Download and print the template. Then, carefully cut out the leaf shapes. These templates will serve as a guide for creating your felt leaves.
Step 3: Trace and Cut Your Felt Leaves
Place the leaf template onto your chosen felt sheets and trace around it with a pen or chalk. Repeat this step for as many leaves as you’d like to include in your garland. Once traced, carefully cut out the felt leaves along the marked lines.
Step 4: Add Beads for a Touch of Elegance
Now, it’s time to add the beaded accents to your felt leaves. Heat up your hot glue gun and prepare to attach beads to each leaf. Place a small dot of hot glue on the backside of a leaf and press a bead onto it. Continue this process, arranging beads in various patterns or styles on each leaf. Experiment with different bead sizes and colors to achieve the desired look.
Step 5: Create the Beaded Garland
To assemble your garland, cut a length of twine or string to your desired length, leaving a little extra for hanging. Using your hot glue gun, attach each felt leaf to the twine. Be sure to space the leaves evenly along the twine. This process not only secures the leaves but also allows you to adjust their positioning to your liking.
Step 6: Decorating Your Space
Now that your felt leaf beaded garland is complete, it’s time to find the perfect spot to display it. I chose to adorn my mantel with this charming garland, but you can let your creativity run wild. Hang it over a doorway, drape it on a shelf, or use it as a table centerpiece—the possibilities are endless. This garland will infuse your space with the warm, inviting colors of fall.
Crafting with Kids
If you’re looking for a fun and family-friendly craft, this project is perfect for children, too. Just remember to supervise the use of the hot glue gun or opt for regular glue and allow the garland to dry thoroughly. Crafting together is a wonderful way to create lasting memories and share the joy of fall’s beauty with your loved ones.
In conclusion, the beauty of fall is a sight to behold, and with this DIY felt leaf beaded garland, you can bring those gorgeous colors indoors and infuse your space with the essence of autumn. Customizable and easy to create, this craft project allows you to celebrate the season in your own unique way. So, gather your supplies, download our free leaf template, and embark on this creative journey to capture the enchanting spirit of fall. Happy crafting!
