How to Make a Paper Leaf Garland

Create a special Thanksgiving tradition by having your kids
write down or draw something they are grateful for each day,
and for a fun activity, have them make crafts to help decorate the home for the fall.
My four year old is currently grateful for fall leaves, he loves it!
As a fun craft, he created a string of leaves.
Kids How to Make a Paper Leaf Garland
For your child to create their own you will need:
  • Construction paper (yellow, orange, red, brown)
  • Crayons or markers
  • Safety scissors
  • tape
  • A long piece of yarn or any string

Template provided by "enchantedlearning"

The template provided can be printed and colored by your little one.
Use it also as a template to draw a leaf on the construction paper.
Make sure to draw a thick stem on the top of your leaf  (your leaf will hang from this stem,
which will be folded over).

  1. Cut out the leaf.  Draw the leaf veins if you wish.
  2. Fold the leaf's stem in half.
  3. Attach the leaf to your string using the tape.  Make more leaves and continue attaching them to the string.  Use as little or as many as you like. 

Hang your string of leaves/ garland across the room or across a mantel
for that warm Thanksgiving feel.

For adults, you may use felt as we did here,
pattern paper or fabric to create your own decorative garland.
Happy Crafting!


  1. We actually have a similar tradition..we do leaf rubs and string them together :) The oldest really loves doing the leave rubbings. I have a question for you think you could get involved in our super hop.. if you go to my blog you can read more about it. I think it would be a great boost for traffic. Let me know.

  2. What a great idea. I need to come up with somethings like this to be Thanksgiving traditions for our young, little family. Thanks!

  3. These are so cute! We don't have kids yet, but I know my husband would help me out until we do :)

  4. Very fun project, I love it when the little ones are involved with the decorations. Then they're better than anything that can be bought at the store:)


Thank you for adding your thoughts. I read all of your comments and I reply to all one way or another, mostly by email or on your blog. You brighten up my day & for that I thank you.
