Natural Fall Leaf Garland
One of the things I love about living in Southwestern Pennsylvania is watching the leaves change color in the fall. The other day I went out for a walk. The air was crisp and cool and I started picking up some of the leaves that had fallen. Pretty soon I had an armful, so I thought I'd bring my treasure inside and make a fall leaf garland for my kitchen window.

How to Make a Natural Fall Leaf Garland
Gather fall leaves. Wipe them clean of dirt and debris.
Measure out enough rope to cover the area you want to hang the garland. I decided to hang mine at the kitchen window.
Add a little extra to make a knot on each end. Normally I have a small valance hanging there. I removed the rod and used the brackets for hanging the garland.
Next coat the leaves with Mod Podge. This gives them a glossy look and helps to keep them from drying out and crumbling.
Then starting with the largest leaves hot glue them to the rope to make a base.
Add mid-sized and small leaves on top.
I added a little extra in the middle to highlight the center but you can create whatever shape you desire.
You can hang this fall leaf garland anywhere in the house.
I chose my kitchen window because I didn't have much fall going on in this room.
It adds a beautiful warm glow to the space.
