Autumn Leaf Garland | Tutorial

As the season changes, I love adding some handmade Autumnal decor around the house. This little vertical garland is a great way to use up some fabric scraps and try out a few different decorative stitch techniques. The design is really adaptable; if you want the garland to be longer you can simply make extra leaves and use a longer ribbon, or add a knot at each end of the ribbon to change it into leaf bunting.

You can make the whole garland from just one fat eighth of fabric, or a selection of decent sized scraps will give you a look more similar to mine. With a variety of decorative stitches in the tutorial, it’s a great chance to try out some new techniques and motifs.

The garland design is really flexible overall so you could:

  • make more or less leaves to change the length of the garland
  • overlap the leaves for a “full” look
  • trying different decorative stitching
