A while back (2010?!) I did a post about how to make a dried leaf garland. I came across it the other day an thought it was worth another look!
For the first step, look to this post for how to dry and mod-podge your leaves. Gather some strong thread or twine and a needle and you're ready to go.
I tried using thread first, and didn't like it. It got twisted, and the leaves slid around too much.
Then I grabbed what was left of my hemp (I seriously think that I've had this since I was 12!!) and used it instead.
This required me to use a yarn needle to poke holes first
I threaded the hemp through one side
And through the other side
And then do it again, and again, and again!!!
Ta-da! Now you have a festive decoration that will last for the season!
