AUTUMN GARLAND DIY

Hello my lovely readers πŸ™‚

Today I wanted to share with you an easy, quick and inexpensive DIY but which also looks very cute. I’m going to show you how to make your own Autumn garland.

You will need

  • A pair of scissors.
  • A pencil
  • Some cardboard (I used a box old biscuits).
  • A brush
  • A paint of your choice, mine is a beautiful copper paint but the camera doesn’t get its shine properly.
  • Some thread .It’s better, if the colour of the thread is the same colour as the background, where you want to set your garland.
  • A needle.

First you should draw some leaves on your cardboard with the pencil. You can either draw them yourself or you can print a drawing from the internet. I opted to draw them myself (thank goodness they turned out quite well).

After it you should cut with the scissors, as you can see they don’t all look the same but that’s ok, natural leaves are never identical.

Then you shall proceed to pain your leaves. I decided to paint them with two coats. If one of the sides of the leaves, is going to be facing the wall you don’t need to paint it, no one will notice.

Finally you just have to make a hole on the steam of the leave and pass the thread through it, this way you create a beautiful garland.

You can set it by itself but I decided it’d look cuter and cosier with this fairy lights that I already owned.
