These Felt Leaf Garland DIY projects are so easy to make and I’m excited to share this simple but beautiful DIY with you. I used my Cricut to make mine, but you can also cut the leaves by hand. You can make one for any season!
Supplies For The DIY Felt Leaf Garland
- Twine, string or yarn
- Hot glue gun
How To Make Felt Leaves
I found my leaf pattern on Canva and resized the leaves to 2 1/2 inches each. You can easily cut the felt leaves by hand, but I love my Cricut because it will cut the leaves while I’m working on other projects. Here is the green color felt that I used felt leaves garland DIY. It’s my favorite green and I use it all of the time! Trees, leaves, wreaths, etc.
I used the Cricut rotary wheel to cut the felt leaves. I get the cleanest cut with it. My garland took about 50 leaves. I used a glue gun to pinch and glue one end of the leaves together to give the leaves some shape. You don’t have to use leaves that are rounded on the end, any simple leaf shape will work.
Here are a few from Etsy in case you would rather buy it than DIY it!
Spring or Summer Leaf Garland DIY With Speckled Eggs
I used little eggs that had a cute speckled pattern. I used about 20 eggs and I drilled holes through each one. Here are some similar eggs. The holes need to be large enough to fit the twine through.
This took a little patience but I finally got the job done. It helped to tape the end of the twine to use it like a needle to fish the twine through the eggs. You can see that in the photo above.
If you want to make a Magnolia leaf garland DIY, you just need to make the leaves larger. Cut them at about 4 inches to achieve this look.
Assembling the DIY Felt Leaf Garland Together
I glued clusters of three leaves together and then glued them to the twine. After giving that a few seconds to dry, I slid an egg on the twine to create some separation. I found the easiest way to glue the leaves to the twine is after you have the three leaves glued together with a hot glue gun, flip them over and draw a straight line with the glue and then stretch the twine over the glue.
You can also cut thin strips of felt and sew the leaves directly to the felt if you’d like. This might actually be faster, but I’m not the best with a sewing machine so I opted to glue them.
How To Make A Pretty Fall Felt Leaf Garland
I made another felt garland for fall and I decided to add it to this post. I used fall-colored yarn instead of twine and strung wooden beads between the leaves instead of eggs. I love this Fall garland DIY. I also made a matching felt wreath.
I used standard felt sheets in the following colors: Cranapple, Tan, Sandstone, Antique White, and Goldenrod.
I hope you enjoyed this simple Felt Leaf Garland DIY. You can use this garland for any holiday. If you’d like another Circut Maker project, be sure to check out my Bunny Garland or my Easy Paper Flower Wreath With Cricut! Thanks for stopping by!
