Making a Fall Leaf Garland

with Cutcardstock

leaf garland

Cutcardstock’s featured theme this month is orange, brown, and gold. These colors say fall to me and that makes me think about all the colors of the changing leaves. As a part of the Cutcardstock Design Team, I created an SVG file of leaf shapes. I then cut the file from five different colors of card stock. Using the leaves in a random order, I sewed them together.

card stock

These five colors are so beautiful together and the little bit of sparkle from the gold and orange really coordinate well. I cut the leaves from Green Curry, Stardream Metallic Flame, Stardream Metallic Gold, Bonsai, and Kraft.

cricut maker

Three of the colors are 80# card stock and the other two are 105#. These papers cut really well in my Cricut Maker. I used a setting of 100lb card stock. For the two heavier pages I used a pressure setting of more.

cut leaves

Using one page of each color, here are all the cut leaves. Aren’t those colors gorgeous together? From here I made stacks of eleven leaves in random order. This gave me enough to make three strands.

The stacks were then used to sew the leaves. I was amazed at how easily the card stock fed through my machine.

tail of thread

This close-up shows the spacing between the leaves, it was about three to four stitches, you could do more or less depending upon the look you want. Before sewing, you’ll want to start with a tail of thread about 12″ long for hanging.

final garland

Here the leaf garland is hanging in a doorway. While I had cut enough for three strands, I am now thinking I need to make more to fill the entire space!

This project was so fun and relaxing to make. If you would like to make your own, please visit the store to download the free SVG file. [Fall Leaves].
