Leaf Garland

 I found this sweet little paper garland tutorial the other day...
and now we have leaf garlands showing up all over :-)
It's available as a free download over at a lovely blog called A Field Journal.
Thank you Livy :-)
 If you haven't gotten all of your Thanksgiving decorations up
these make a nice little addition that takes just minutes to make :-)
 Although I've made mine with plain white copy paper
  they would be very pretty in the color of your choice
 or even in vintage sheet music.
Visit Faded Charm for more White Wednesday posts :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

I love a garland-crazed woman! Ya get that pair of scissors in your hand and you just can't stop cutting. My blog for tomorrow is actually about scissors and cutting paper. Your garlands are great and I actually like them in the white. Hugs- Diana

Beautiful! When I taught kindergarten, I always had the kids cut out different leaf patterns and we would make a garland to surround the classroom windows and boards. Looks great even in white! Best wishes for a beautiful day! :) Tammy

I love the garland. It would look better red though around July or during some international hockey tournament or the Olympics. :)
