I’ve been waiting all week to share this sewing project that I put together last weekend!!! Hurry out and pick up some colored leaves before they all brown to put together this garland for your door. It didn’t take long at all and lasted for a whole week before a big gust of wind pulled it down.
Here’s how I made it 🙂 First, I gathered a ton of maple leaves and since it was early in the morning and they were slightly damp, I “oven dried” them! Yes, I put the oven on as low as it would go and gave them about 2 minutes in there so I didn’t get my sewing machine totally wet when stitching them up.
Then I simply ran them through the sewing machine (with white thread) being careful to make sure there were always two leaves going through at the same time so the garland had a full look to it. I just kept going until I thought it was long enough and then went outside and tried and it worked out to be the perfect length!
