Happy first day of Autumn friends!! Welcome to day 3 of the Fall Series. I’m sharing another easy and inexpensive Fall DIY, painted Fall leaves garland. This is our first Fall in Okinawa and I’m already missing pinecones and turning leaves that I usually collect. To make up for all of the beautiful green foliage outside, I’m bringing a little Fall color inside. Let’s get started!
Dollar store leaves
needle and thread
Spray paint leaves and let dry. (I painted 4 boughs of leaves white and one bough copper.)
Remove each individual leaf from stems with wire cutters or scissors.
To start the garland, tie thread around the first leaf to hold into place then thread on remaining leaves.
Tip: Double the thread or try embroidery floss.
I hung the garland right above the piano on my washi wall (you can find that DIY HERE). There’s just enough orange and copper peeking through. It’s lovely.
We had a really hot day today but inside with the AC running and touches of Fall decor here and there makes it cozy!
