fall leaves garland

Three kinds of maple - including big-leaf maple and vine maple.

Oregon white oak leaves.

Cottonwood and quaking aspen leaves.

Oregon ash

Now I just need some twine to turn these lovely felt leaves into a garland.

My wonderful husband used his amazing computer skills to turn some Google search images I found into simple stencils that I cut out and traced onto felt. The whole tracing and cutting felt part of this project took much more time than I thought, so he grabbed some scissors and helped me out. He's great like that.

In case you're wondering where I got the idea for this project, the second and third picture in this post inspired me.
