When the weather turns crisp outside, it’s time to start making fall crafts! Kick the Thanksgiving season off by making this easy and inexpensive fall garland using wood slices. I added touches of teal and used faux fall leaves to bring golden hues to my garland.

I love the simple, rustic look of this garland. If you have a nook to decorate or even a larger run along a stairwell, make this colorful garland to decorate it.

I made a 3-foot garland string in about an hour, and that was mainly just paint drying time.

How to Make Fall Garland Using Faux Leaves and Wood Slices

Start by painting four wood slices in fall colors. I used gold, light orange, and light teal. Add more or less white acrylic paint to your chosen colors to get the desired hue. Let dry completely. NOTE: If you’ll be hanging your garland where the back will show, you may want to paint the other side too.

Next use letter stencils to paint the FALL letters onto your wood slices. I used black acrylic paint but brown or gold would work too. Dab the paint on with a stencil brush or foam applicator to avoid paint seeping under the stencil.

Set the wood slices aside and grab your faux leaves. Use a hole punch to make a hole in each one as shown below.

String your leaves onto a rope that is slightly wider in diameter than the hole you punched. This will allow you to position your leaves along the rope without them all sliding to the center. If you’re using a rope or string that is thinner and the leaves don’t stay in place, try hot gluing the leaves in place.

To finish, drill a hole at the top of each wood slice and tie them onto your garland with string or twine.
