Burlap Leaf Garland

Yesterday afternoon in the using what you have motto, I pulled out my burlap and celebrated the first day of fall by making a leaf garland...
Just drew a couple leaf shapes and cut, I then used Elmer's glue and "drew" around the edges to prevent fraying... Once it was dry I took, orange, brown, and magenta embroidery floss and made the veins...

These are totally cute! I especially love the stitching detail. How clever! :) I have some orange burlap, and I'm thinking this would be super cute with different, fall colors too! :)

Thanks for sharing! :)
