Using old plastic folders, pages from a book, and Mod Podge® Outdoor, you can create this gorgeous outdoor ready garland!
At a Glance:
This project features these great brands:
A used book
Used plastic folders
Loose wooden beads
A leaf shaped print out in 3 sizes
A piece of rough sandpaper
Cut apart your plastic folders so that you have large flat pieces without folders or spines.
Sand your plastic pieces and wipe off dust.
Glue down pages of your book onto your plastic pieces using Mod Podge ® Outdoor and a paintbrush. Allow to dry and repeat on the other side.
Trace your leaf shape printouts onto your covered plastic, making sure to fit as many leaves as possible on one sheet.
Cut out your traced leaves and bend them in the center (see image).
Punch two holes in each leaf near the “branch”. This is where the twine will thread through. Put aside.
Using Yellow Ochre, Canyon Sunset and Mossy Meadow, paint your wooden beads. Allow to dry and add a second coat if needed.
To assemble, thread your leaves and beads with twine!
