Hey guys! Kari here from Life PreKARIous. I am so excited to show you this easy DIY copper leaf garland, today!

My entry way is always the first thing I decorate when the season or holiday changes and that’s exactly where I put this festive leaf garland! It would look great on a mantel, too, if you’ve got one.

Here’s what I used to make your this fun copper leaf garland:

  • Leaves
  • String or twine
  • Copper spray paint
  • Mini clothes pins 
  • Hot glue

First, I gathered some leaves. I simply collected some off my front yard, but if you plan on storing and re-using this garland again next year, you may want to grab some faux leaves from the craft store. 

Once I had gathered my leaves, I covered them with one coat of the copper spray paint. This stuff is my new favorite paint! It covers so well and dries super fast! Everything you’ve ever wanted in a spray paint, right?

After the copper paint was dry I added them to the craft string two different ways to create the garland. 

The first technique was to simply glue them to the craft string using hot glue.

This way worked great for the smaller leaves, but the big leaves were too heavy to stay upright.

The second way I hung the leaves was SO easy! I simply clipped them to the string using mini clothes pins.

That’s it! I used some cute button push pins to hang the garland over my entry table.
