- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Cut out the leaves according to the template notes using scissors.
- Glue two leaf halves together with the grain facing in opposite directions so the grain comes to a point in the middle.
- Wrap the copper wire around the foam ball about ten to fifteen time. Cut with the wire cutters.
- Remove the foam ball from the middle and reshape the wire into a ball shape.
- Cut seven feet of cotton cord and begin gluing the leaves on about eight inches down the cord. Layer the leaves so they all face the same direction.
- Continue gluing the leaves onto the cord. Leave about eight inches of cord on each end for hanging.
- Create volume by pulling back some of the leaves, then place your wire balls in the garland by sticking one end of the wire ball through a leaf.
