Falling Leaves Door Decor Tutorial

Falling Leaves Door Decor Tutorial
Pin It
I am excited to share the newest addition to my Fall decor with you today, my door hanger. Not only is it so easy, but it is inexpensive too! You can’t go wrong with that.
You will need…
8 felt leaf place mats (I found mine at the dollar store!)
Burlap garland or ribbon
Ribbon (this will be hidden)
Hot glue or Tacky Glue
Spray starch
Flat iron
You are probably thinking, a flat iron?! Yes! I didn’t want the leaves to be totally flat against the door, so I decided to give them a little dimension. Just spray some starch on each of the leaves. Curl the edges of the leaves with your flat iron, by clamping down and curving the flat iron as you pull towards the edges.
Lay out your leaves how you want them to be and glue them together. I used hot glue because my door hanger isn’t actually outside. If it is going to be outside, I recommend using something like Tacky Glue.
Put a ribbon through the top of the leaves. I poked a hole in one, and laced the ribbon through the center slit on another leaf. Tie the ribbon in the back. This is how it will hang up on your door.
Make a giant bow out of your burlap ribbon or garland and glue it to the top of your leaves.
Hang it up and enjoy! I know that there are a lot of people out there who are celebrating Christmas early and putting up their Christmas decor right now, but I just can’t do it! I love Fall decor too much! Do you have Fall at your house or are you decorating for Christmas already?

This looks really lovely and it doesn't seem to be too tricky or time consuming :)

This is a totally fun tutorial! I've never wished to have a Flat Iron more in my life! I don't have a flat or a curling iron... any other ideas for what might work to give them that awesome curl?

Maybe you can just use an iron and an ironing board and try bending the leaves as you iron it. I don't know if that would work, but it is worth a try!

I have seen a couple different things done with these leaves, but I think yours is by far the best! Thanks for sharing!
