DIY Autumn Garland
Recently I learnt that some people save their odds and ends of sewing threads. To be honest the thought had never crossed my mind but once it did I was determined to find a way of using them!!
Start by prepping wood slices (you can buy or hand saw these), sand any rough edges. Paint the side of the slice, leaving a gap of 1/4” of wood around the edge with white milk paint. Set aside to dry.
I love working with Paper-backed fusible interfacing, this is perfect for fusing sewing threads. Fuse lots of short sewing threads to the sticky side of the glue, be sure to protect your iron with baking paper.
Peel the fusible interfacing off the paper, place the glue side down into an orange base fabric. Iron to adhere (protecting the iron).
Cut out a variety of leaf shapes from your orange thread fabric. I have used a printed template - you can find this on my blog.
Using a glue stick place these onto your prepared wood slices.
Drill holes into the top of the wood slices.
Thread gardeners twine to hang your leaf garland.
Who would believe the starting point was on and ends of seeing threads?! Hang your completed autumn garland.
