This diy is the perfect way to bring color and some festive feels to an empty wall space.

the stick

The stick I used is actually a dead fiddle leaf fig tree, but you can use any found stick for this project — I chat more about this is in the video tutorial so go check that out below.

leaves

You can use faux or real leaves for this project. Faux leaves are a little easier to work with and will last through multiple seasons so they are a great option and what I used since there were no fall leaves available when I put this project together.

I do think that you just can't beat the natural beauty and look of real leaves though, so opting for real leaves might give your project an even more elevated look.

You can preserve real leaves by dipping them in wax — I've seen a few tutorials for this floating around pinterest — so I would totally recommend preserving your leaves before diving into this project so they will last longer and hold up better.

Fall Leaf Wall Hanging DIY

Fall Leaf Wall Hanging DIY

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Active Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes
Difficulty: Beginner

Instructions

Measure your wall

Measure the wall where you'll be hanging this piece to see how long the leaf strings should be.

Mine was above a headboard so my strings were 15-24" long

Make the Fall Leaf Wall Hanging

01. Choose a side of the stick to be the back, set on your workspace with the back facing upwards

02. Tie a piece of clear thread around the stick and secure the knot to the back with a dab of hot glue

03. Glue leaves on one at a time — making sure to attach the string to the back of the leaf so that the front side (without glue or string) faces down against the table. Vary the color and size of the leaves for a natural look.

04. Keep going with more leaf strings in the same way, varying the length of each string, until the entire stick is full

05. Hang on wall — I hammered a long nail into the wall on each side and rested each end of the stick on each nail.

Notes

Check out the video below for detailed instructions and info about what type of stick I used.
