fall floral and paper garland

Berries, dried floral and paper make this table garland the perfect accent to your fall tablescape. The lush textures will impress your guests and it can be displayed from early fall to Thanksgiving.
Step 1
Cut leaf shapes out of cardstock. Keep the leaves approximately 3"-6" [7.6 cm-15.2 cm] long. The leaves can be cut by hand depending on your skill or creativity or with any cutting machine. Set them aside.
Step 2
Unroll a piece of wide burlap ribbon to use as the base. Determine how long you would like your garland and add an extra 8" [20.3 cm] to each end. Fold each end over and cut a “V” to make a dove tail shape.
Step 3
Lay some berry stems down the center of the burlap ribbon. Cut off the long stem leaving about 3" [7.6 cm].
Step 4

Cut pieces of jute that are about 8" [20.3 cm] long and use them to tie the berry stems to the burlap ribbon. Trim off any excess. Position and bend the stems giving the garland shape, depth and movement.


Step 5
Tuck Reindeer moss throughout the garland adding a softness and green tone. Use hot glue to hold it in place.
Step 6
Cut off heads of a snowball bush and accent the garland along with Sola flowers. Position these to be the focal part of the garland and use some hot glue to hold them in place.
Step 7

Finish the garland by curling the paper leaves with your fingers or a pencil and tucking them into the garland. Once you like their placement use a dab of hot glue to hold them in place.
