Fall Leaf Banner


This is a quick and simple leaf banner that is great for keeping your fireplace decorated till thanksgiving and it is super simple to make.

All you need is some felt, ribbon, and some embroidery floss.


I cut out a bunch of of acorns, maple leaves, and oak leaves (remember you need 2 each for front and back!).  I wanted to put up my template but I have no idea where my scanner's power cord is.  If your backyard is filled with oaks and maples then just grab some fallen leaves and trace them...or look for leave images online and uses them as templates. Just making a bunch like this and spreading them out on a thanksgiving table would look awesome.


Now I just sewed the backs on with my sewing machine. 


Now you can embroider the front for some details on the leaves or keep them simple. Then sew them to the backs or glue if you are in a time pinch.


I just love the oak leaves.


Then hang them up!


Enjoy!
