Make A Pretty Fall Paper Leaf Wall Hanging
Make A Pretty Fall Paper Leaf Wall Hanging using a Cricut machine, or leaf stencil. Add sea glass for a little bling. This cost just a few dollars to make! Here is what you need for supplies:
- Fishing Line
- Wood Pole or Stick
- Decorative Paper
- Hot Glue Gun – This is my favorite cordless glue gun
- Sea Glass
My daughter has been collecting sea glass for many years. But if you don't have a collection, you can buy some at the craft store for just a few dollars. Be sure to use a coupon! Next up, I cut out paper leaves using my Cricut Cutting Machine, but if you don't have one, you can print out a leaf template on pretty paper and cut them out with scissors. There are many free ones on Pinterest or if you just google leaf template.
Next, attach 6 pieces of fishing line to the wood pole at varying lengths. Add a dab of glue to the top to ensure it doesn’t come untied. Then use hot glue to attach the leaves and sea glass spacing it out however you like. You have to hold the sea glass for a minute to make sure it is secure. I was tired of burning my fingers with the glue gun, so I finally ordered these finger caps. Have you ever seen these before? Best thing ever!
That is pretty much it. You can add more lines if you want, but I liked how it was spaced out. Also, after fall you could remove the leaves and add snowflakes. But I think this is something you can leave up year round. It doesn’t scream fall. You can also use shells. Be creative and use things you already have. It is a fun project to do with the kids too-minus the hot glue!
