Fall decorating is so easy to become our favorite, isn’t it?! Everything cozy and warm…and lots of texture! Better yet when we can achieve that for $1 at our local dollar store! That is exactly what you can do with this super simple idea!
I have to admit I actually picked these up to use to decorate my kids’ playroom for Fall. I love adding these felt cutouts from the dollar stores for different seasons in our playroom. It’s just adorable! You can see my favorite snowflake winter ones HERE. I just love how they look on the walls….and for $1! So…anyway…I made to snag another pack to use in the playroom, since I now have these in our family room, haha! And, another great DIY I did in the playroom are these FARMHOUSE STYLE POSTER FRAMES.
Separate the leaves into stacks by leaf type. This set has 5 colors and 4 leaf styles. I wanted to have a repeating pattern of color and a repeating pattern of leaves through the garland. For example, the color pattern for mine is: red, yellow, brown, orange, and green. So, I used the red for the first leaf style in the set, the yellow from the next set, the brown from the third style, the orange from the fourth style, and finally the green from the last. Then, I kept repeating through the stacks in that color order.
Next, simply string the leaves on the twine. I didn’t need to knot them individually to the twine as the felt and the twine had enough friction in between them that the leaves don’t slide around on their own.
3. Don’t worry about spacing the leaves out and you string them on. Just get them on in the order you want them.
4. Decide how long you want to make your garland. I measured mine to fit above our triple window in our family room. I cut the twine a bit longer than seven feet, but you can make yours to suit your space you want to hang it. That’s a great thing about not having to secure the leaves in place, you can adjust the leaves to use on longer and shorter pieces you want to display it on, so it is easy to move it around! (Once I cut it I decided to hang it from our FRAMED SHIPLAP. You can get our FREE PLANS to make your own here:

Hi! I'm Tara, half of the Growit Buildit duo. I am a frugal DIY enthusiast!! My professional background is in education and counseling, but have spent the last few years as a stay at home mom, which has given me the opportunity to explore my passions that have been put aside for so long.
I gravitate towards what I'd consider modern farmhouse style, with a little boho mixed in.
I have planned remodels for larger projects, like our kitchen, as well as many smaller DIY projects around our house. In addition, I create a lot of smaller craft projects.
I am currently a maker for a local retail boutique in our area called 6ix North.
I hope my posts provide you with some useful information for your DIY projects.
