An autumn garland

I'm not especially crafty, but I do like to have a go at making the odd thing, 

especially if it's pretty simple.

This gorgeous autumn garland is as simple as can be and pretty cheap to make. Not only that but
it looks great and you can put it just about anywhere; on a mirror (like me), on a fireplace or
even across a photo frame! The possibilities are endless.

You will need: leaf template (print out in two different sizes), different coloured felt 
(red, brown, green & yellow), string, mini pegs, pins, red embroidery thread, a needle and scissors.
Step 1: Cut out the leaf templates and pin them to your chosen felt. Cut them out. 
Repeat this process until you have approx. 20 leaves.
Step 2: Using and embroidery thread, stitch veins onto each leaf, using a simple running stitch.
Step 3: Arrange your leaves along your length of string and peg.
Step 4: Hang and admire your handy work :)
I love it! It feels so very autumnal in my house right now :)
