Super Easy Fall Leaf Banner



Today I'm re-sharing one of my favorite fall banner tutorials from last year. I was so excited to bring this little colorful banner out of storage this fall! Happy Crafting Y'all!

I'm ready to get busy with some fall crafting. Are you starting to get that itch too? This is a super easy craft that I've had bookmarked for weeks just waiting for the crafting bug to bite. Well, it bit, so here we go y'all! I originally found this leaf banner on a blog {A Beautiful Mess} that I adore. If you haven't been by, for heavens sakes, swing by soon! For this craft you'll need some felt in your choice of colors, some yarn or thread and a needle to stitch. Ready? Let's get started....


1. Cut leaves. I ran outside and pulled a Dogwood leaf off of a tree and traced it onto some card stock and used that as my template. Easy and free.



2. Stitch the leaves together using yarn or embroidery thread. I chose a fine gauge yarn and an embroidery needle to stitch. Remember to knot the ends so as not to lose any leaves. And like the ladies over at A Beautiful Mess suggest, this is a great craft to do while watching  t.v.! 


3. You can make it as long or short as you like. That's it! You can now sit back and enjoy your Felt Leaf Banner. So easy!


I had lots of fun trying it out in different places around the house. It really brightened up the chalkboard and also looked right at home on our antique hutch. Maybe I should make more than one! I hope you enjoyed this super easy banner craft. Have a great weekend y'all!
