DIY paper leaf garland

You absolutely loved the DIY upcycled paper flower chandelier from the above, but I got a lot of requests to show how we made the green garland in the photo as well. I will say, making the garland out of paper was one of our smarter moves as we can now use it for multiple occasions and not have it die out on us. Score! It’s beautiful home decor but also perfect for summer gatherings and even winter gatherings as it has that holiday air. AND! This garland is easy peasy to make. Promise!

Learn how to make the DIY paper leaf garland below!

Materials:

  1. Cut out leaves with the template provided with the grain going vertically on the pattern
  2. Sew the leaves criss-crossed down the middle.
  3. That’s it! Keep going until you reach a length you would like. We made ours extra long so that we can cut them at whatever length we’d like them to be.

    • The most stable would be to use a sewing machine–even if you could borrow one. Hand stitching would work too, though more labor intensive. You could also glue each leaf together–again, more labor intensive.
