One of the things I love about living in Southwestern Pennsylvania is watching the leaves change color in the fall. The other day I went out for a walk. The air was crisp and cool and I started picking up some of the leaves that had fallen. Pretty soon I had an armful, so I thought I’d bring my treasure inside and made a fall leaf garland for my kitchen window.
My kitchen was one room that I hadn’t decorated for fall, so when my fellow bloggers from Hometalk said they were getting together to share their fall decor, I thought this was the perfect way to join in.
Be sure to see what all my friends are doing at the bottom of this post.
- Fall leaves
- Rope or twine
- Mod Podge
- Glue Gun
Gather fall leaves. Wipe them clean of dirt and debris.
Measure out enough rope to cover the area you want to hang the garland. I decided to hang my at the kitchen window. Add a little extra to make a knot on each end. Normally I have a small valance hanging there. I removed the rod and used the brackets for hanging the garland.
Next coat the leaves with Mod Podge. This gives them a glossy look and helps to keep them from drying out and crumbling.
Then starting with the largest leaves hot glue them to the rope to make a base. Add mid-sized and small leafs on top. I added a little extra in the middle to highlight the center but you can create whatever shape you desire.
