Fall is one of my absolutely favorite seasons! Flannel shirts, boots, bonfires, and pumpkins…oh my! I love the colors, the rustic smells of falling leaves, and I just find Fall to be ‘comfy’.
I have been super excited to share with you one of my latest Fall DIY decorations! This absolutely adorable Crochet Maple Leaf Garland. Isn’t it the cutest?
I found the pattern for the Maple leaf from the lovely Michelle at The Painted Hinge. Her patten is extremely user friendly, and she has kindly shared the pattern for free!
Y’all should definitely check out her blog. She has some of the cutest crafts ever, has some fantastic DIY projects, and even printables! (I am a total sucker for printables!) You can check out her blog here.
I don’t have the garland actually hanging above our fireplace, because…well, I always like to have at least 20 projects going on at one time. Anyway, here is my latest DIY adventure.
I decided that the 60’s called, and they really wanted their fireplace back. Doesn’t it look sooooo much better with the white?!? Eventually, I will get a new mantle, and finish off some built ins on either side.
You will need:
I used Lion Brand yarn:
1 skein Lion’s Pride Woolspun in Honey
1 skein Lion’s Pride Woolspun in Red
1 skein Lion’s Pride Woolspun in Pumpkin
Start with chain 5
Join with slip stitch into first chain.
Chain 20, and join with slip stitch into tip of the third leaf point in maple leaf.
Chain 10, and join with slip stitch into tip of the third leaf point in maple leaf.
Chain 10, and join with slip stitch into tip of the third leaf point in maple leaf. Repeat these steps until you come to the end of your garland. Then you will chain 25 and slip stitch into the 5th stitch from the hook.
