If you’ve followed Pebbles for any amount of time, you’re probably well aware of our love for banners and garlands. Today, we’re showcasing a fantastic paper leaf gratitude garland put together by Amanda Coleman, from Popper and Mimi.
In an effort to foster a spirit of gratitude in our home this holiday season, I created a gratitude leaf garland to display in the house during the month of November.
Making a paper leaf garland is easy and only requires paper and twine. I chose patterns and colors that fit within a fall inspired color palette.
Every day, have each family member write down something they are thankful for and add it to the garland. By the end of November, this entire garland will be filled with the things we are grateful for.
Since there are four members in my family, die cut 120 paper leaves, which is enough to carry us through the entire month of November. Choose your favorite leaf dies and get cranking!
I used a variety of dies from the Silhouette store to cut maple, oak, ginkgo, and birch leaves, among others. If you don’t have a die cutting machine, cut simple leaves by hand for an equally stunning effect.
