Oak leaf garland

12 Days of Christmas crafts

Oak leaf garland

This is a foolproof project for those of you out there who say you don’t have a crafty bone in your body. It requires only two materials and no special equipment and you’ll be done in five minutes flat. How’s that for easy?

You will need:

  • oak leaf gift tags
  • bakers twine


Oak leaf garland tutorial

1. Tie on tags at even intervals along the twine.

2. Tie a loop at each end to hang.

I hung them on the stairs (using mini 3M Command Strips) but it would also look great on a mantle, window or tree. If you don’t want to shell out for the tags (sob!) you can easily substitute simpler freehand cut leaf shapes or any festive shape cut using a craft punch. For a more polished look, replace the bakers twine with satin ribbon.
