Hi ya, crafty friends! I have been working on some fall projects in preparation for putting out my fall decor, and I just had to share how fun this one turned out! I wanted to make something that was fall friendly, but I could keep it up year round too. I settled on this outdoor inspired wall hanging decor with embossed DIY paper leaves, and I love how it turned out! It took just under an hour to make, and I think it would be a big hit at a craft night with friends.
DIY Paper Leaves Wall Hanging Supplies:
- Darice Foliage Embossing Folder
- Darice Fall Leaves Metal Dies
- Darice Birch Branch
- Darice Hemp Twine
- Darice Wood Beads
- Light Green Cardstock
- Dark Green Cardstock
- Darice Scissors
- Darice Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
To get started with your DIY paper leaves, you’ll first use the fall leaf metal dies to cut several leaves out of green cardstock. There are four fabulous dies in the set, so I cut about three from each one.
Next, run your cut leaves through your embossing machine with the Darice leaf embossing folder.
Check out the fabulous texture on your DIY paper leaves!
Tie the three pieces of twine onto your birch branch. String the wood beads in the desired order, leaving gaps for the paper leaves.
That’s it! So easy! I love how clean and modern it looks on my wall. I think I am going to have to do a version with fall colors, and a winter version too (maybe paper snowflakes?). How fun would it be to rotate this every season?!
