This Felt Leaf Garland DIY was 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. I love the way the mossy green leaves look against the white mantle in my she shed.

How To Make Felt Leaves
I found my leaf pattern on Canva and resized the leaves to 2 1/2 inches each. 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. 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 the rounded end of the leaves together to give the leaves some shape.
Here are a few from Etsy in case you would rather buy it than DIY it!
Preparing The Speckled Eggs For Felt Leaf Garland
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.
Putting The Felt Leaf Garland DIY 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.
Sorry, I forgot to get a picture of this step. I’ve also seen a similar garland done with large wooden beads instead of eggs and it looked great. I just happened to have the eggs on hand. I repeated this process until the garland was complete. It’s super easy!
I love an easy felt craft that looks good for any holiday!
