This is such an easy project and a great craft for all of the family to join in. Begin with some plastic yarn needles like these. No sharp point means even young children can join in. Have the kids start gathering up the leaves into a big bag or box to work from.For the beginning of each leaf garland, you will want to cut a piece of cardboard or plastic. If your garland will be displayed in the rain, you might want to opt for plastic. Thread a piece of yarn through the cardboard, tie a big knot and add a little tape to secure it to the backside of the plastic or cardboard.
Thread the yard needles with yarn and start stringing leaves onto the yarn. The leaf garland should begin to look like this. You might even have a prettier garland if you have colorful leaves where you live. I only have these brown sycamore leaves to work with here in central Florida. Continue adding leaves until you have the length you want. I made a pair of these this year to line each of my railings up the stairs to my front porch.
Add ribbons if you would like and use plastic zip ties so you don’t scratch the surface you are attaching the leaves to, and have fun decorating!
